jungle jeff Road Trip?

jungle jeff road trip?

Yes.  Where?

Niagara Falls Conference Center.

I travel a fair amount, as a professional speaker and as Family man.

There’s never enough time in my life to do all the things I want, or need, to do.  Therefore, it’s imperative that I prioritize.  Otherwise, I may accomplish something that doesn’t matter, or worse yet, not do something that really does.

Carpe diem, jungle jeff noel  🙂

Do Bullet Points Make Blogs Better?

Using bullet points can help make any presentation more effective.   No secret there.

Found a link suggesting it can work for blogs, while studying LinkedIn updates.  Click here on Better Blogging with Bullet Points .

Six things I scan every morning:

  • Local weather
  • Local Headlines
  • My daily schedule
  • Disney’s Stock price
  • LinkedIn Updates
  • Blog Stats

Make it a great Sunday, because if you don’t, who will.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂

jungle jeff Day Off?

Day Off for jungle jeff?   Probably.  I’m taking the morning off.  May write later.  May not.  Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

What would Walt Disney do?

Walt Disney always challenged his organization to look into every new and innovative way to entertain his Guests.  And if the way was too slow or too common, he’d invent a new way.  His life blazed a trail of innovative entertainment milestones.

I recently watched a senior executive start a meeting with ten minutes of critical data and an urgent challenge for his executive team.

His entire PowerPoint presentation, in fact his entire speech, was so incredibly timely, I couldn’t believe my ears.   Just minutes before the group started arriving, I was leading a discussion with others nearby, and painting a picture of how businesses could capitalize on new and evolving social networking applications.

Can you imagine if everyone in Sales had their own blogs, writing and sharing imporant highlights, trends, offers, etc”?

Can you imagine operations, blogging about their travels and the difference they are making for customers around the globe”?

Can you imagine having YouTube videos flying across the globe, some having a million+ views”?

Can you imagine being able to deliver a keynote speech for hundreds and offering every single one of them your virtual business card?

Well guess what?

He made it perfectly clear that he’d like his team assembled there to immediately begin looking into Social Media and Social Networking.   Wow!

Why?

Because he said he believes their competitors are planning their strategy around it, and they should be too.   Plus, he said their customers are using it more and more, and it has unlimited potential to create better relationships with them.  Who doesn’t want that?

Of course, there was a healthy dose of “use your professional judgement because you’re representing their Company”.   Isn’t that what we already do?  Use our good judgement?  Of course.

This was a no-brainer, as some people say.   Totally!

In the 1930’s, Walt Disney launched the production of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs movie.  This time period was called the “Great Depression”, in America.

We are now, once again, in another unprecedented “Great Depression”.

I’m having Deja Vu.

This blog you’re reading?   It’s my “Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs”.  Ya with me?  Are you getting the point?

If not now, when?   If not you, who?   Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

When Passion, Will, and Opportunity collide

What happens when passion, will, and opportunity collide?  Impossible becomes possible!

While many know me as a “Disney Fanatic“.   Only a handful truly comprehend the passion to do something great, and, the will to do something great, that has been with me all my life.

Are you a dreamer of impossible dreams?

I would bet you are.

Most humans are.  It’s part of our DNA.  Cavemen dreamed of auto insurance, and, reliable fire.  Walt Disney dreamed of creating a place where families could do fun things together.  Roger Bannister dreamed of running one mile in less than four minutes.

I dream of changing the world.

Funny thing about many dreams.  Once the impossible is accomplished, it ends up becoming business as usual.

Quote me on this one, “If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough“.
