Being Brave

Do not choke

Imagine what a 30-year Disney Operations insider knows about creativity and innovation. Priceless? Depends what you need to fix and improve.

World-class is highly desirable.

Of course, it is also expensive.

Investing time, money, and resources.

(It’s also expensive in lost opportunity costs, turnover, cultural weakness, ineffective leadership).

Not many naturally see world-class cultural architecture as an investment.

Some do.

Guess who they are.

The crazy ones. The misfits. The outliers. The ones who know there is no other choice.

So please do not choke when i give you the quote.

Could This Change Your Life?

Setbacks should be expected

Embrace personal struggles and opportunities, it’s how we learn and grow.

Setbacks should be expected.

Like the recent meeting about a giant business move forward.

Two days ago, the meeting was cancelled hours before it was to start.

Why this is stressful is because the project is already painfully behind.

The cancelled meeting makes it worse.

Like the college freshman, being able to confront the bad things – my fear and doubt – is significant personal growth.

We can become overconfident to the point of a blind spot.

What?

Our success rate with confidence, and plowing through fear and doubt, may just have a cancerous growth we can’t detect until it can not be ignored.

All of a sudden, we are faced with a business challenge that shouldn’t exist and now it’s so big that it drags the rest of the business down.

One Question A Day?

How’s your vision and commitment?

cPanel GoDaddy
Big move. Necessary move.

How much of our risk-taking is irreversible if the risk doesn’t succeed?

What if 18,000 blog posts who’s permalinks contain http don’t migrate to https?

Could they disappear from the internet?

Dear Son

Impossible is the only thing that truly stirs human souls

Mr Incredible…seems like a perfect reference for a college that changes lives.

 

Impossible is the only thing that truly stirs human souls.

The thought of lifting yourself (and others) to a better situation or reality is inspiring.

Curing the incurable.

Leading the un-leadable.

Transforming an addiction into a lifetime recovery.

Eliminating poverty.

Eliminating injustice.

And on and on.

Take your time but hurry up

Disney Keynote Speaker retreat
Exact photo and email content…what you read next is what i emailed to someone, including this photo…

 

Forest fire smoke last year provided a view i’d never seen in 45 years of visiting.

Intentionally engage with nature…enjoy, have fun, inspire, refresh, rethink, renew, reprioritize, transform, recommit…the list goes on and on.

BFO – this is a fleeting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to question everything you believe in and decide what your next 10 years hold for you, for the people you love, and for your professional career (your legacy).

Be amazed and be amazing.
