It’s easy to make decisions

Disney Keynote Speaker
Last week.

It’s easy to make decisions when you know what your values are.  – Roy Disney

 

You don’t need more time, you just need to decide.

Easy to say.

Hard to embrace.

Why?

Deciding is difficult because decisions come with responsibility. It’s better and easier to not decide, our lizard brain says.

Responsibility can make us look like a hero if we handle it well (like physical health).

Responsibility can make us look like a hypocrite if we handle it poorly (again, like physical health).

So, oftentimes, it’s easier and better to not decide.

How to not decide?

Ask for more time.

If you have more time, you can move away from the decision.

Maybe someone else will make it for you.

Maybe it won’t need to be made at all.

Yeah, like what are the odds of our health becoming nothing to defend.

To teach is to learn twice

Glacier Red Bus Tours
The Red Bus Tours are a signature way to see Glacier National Park for the first time.

 

i’ve been writing these blogs for nearly a decade, and one of the best things that’s ever happened (besides getting to read them) is the opportunity i have to dwell in truth all day, every day.

To reflect, to act, and to hope.

This is power food for personal and organizational leadership.

Who says this every day, “i am Disney”?

Disney Institute Speakers
From social media..i think this was in Canada and posted on Twitter.

 

Who says this every day, “i am Disney”?

Certainly, the Disney Institute Facilitators that taught this one-day course in Canada.

My wife Cheryl, who’s 35th year at Disney begins in September.

And of course, every Cast Member who ever was, is now, or ever will be.

And all of this presumes Cast Members worked for many years before retiring or moving on.

You have the power to revoke at any moment

Steve Jobs quote
Simple. profound. Almost always forgotten.

 

 

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.  — Marcus Aurelius

Authenticity, transparency, and enthusiasm

write like you mean it
Nearly everyone could write a book. Hardly anyone does. Fear, doubt, and excuses lead the way in why so many important books never get written.

 

Authenticity, transparency, and enthusiasm.

The three keys to sales.

And the script i use to tell myself was, “I’m not good at selling. i hate selling.”

Turns out, i excel at sales.

What changed?

The three things audience members – from executives to front-line employees – consistently tell me is that they observe an authenticity, transparency, and enthusiasm that is rarely seen in keynote speakers.

When i’m on the phone with a potential client who loves Disney, and they have a robust budget, Magic happens.
