Final 120 Days

Expect the unexpected

Disney Conference Speakers
Whew, time to roll up the sleeves.

Expect the unexpected.

Last June i planned to kick off Summer 2019 and arrive in Glacier National Park yesterday, June 1.

The Madrid Disney Creativity Keynote speech was a recent opportunity; it provides Thinking Heads HQ and me a chance to meet in person.

Son, plan your future intentionally. Plan to be flexible too.

So What?

It’s a rare day when i go 12 hours without checking messages

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
If they pick me this morning, i’m going to tell them my dress code.

 

It’s a rare day when i go 12 hours without checking messages and responding quickly.

In the car and ready to drive home from Tampa, the voice mail from six hours earlier asked about my availability to deliver a customer service keynote in eight days.

Praying for the original Disney keynote Speaker who had a heart attack.

Dear Son

Technically, i should still be working at Disney

If it hadn’t been for the 2008-2009 economic crisis and the ensuing Disney layoffs, i’d still be working for Disney.

  1. i would not be an author.
  2. i would not be a business owner.
  3. i would not be a an executive coach.

i would have wound up with 40 years at Disney instead of 30, retiring in 2024 instead of 2014.

Plan for it to end

Daisies
Anomaly? It happens. A few days ago driving Going-to-the-Sun Road for the final time before heading home.

 

Plan for it to end. Literally a four day notice. Thankful for the time we had and what we accomplished together in 90 days.

Is there a chance it will continue?

Of course.

Remain optimistic, keep moving forward, and expect the unexpected.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
