Risk, failure, and opportunity

Humans are curious beings.

What’s the first thing you think of when you are presented with a risky proposition?

Failure?

Opportunity?

How do you see it?

The only constant at Disney is change

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers
First Disney Institute business card from 1999 and a later version, before we moved to Celebration Place 200, from the 220 building.

The only at Disney constant is change.

Same with you as CEO of You, Inc.

If fear and doubt made us smarter

Frank G Wells
Frank Wells was the voice of reason if Michael Eisner had any fear or doubt.

 

If fear and doubt made us smarter, we’d become regular Einsteins, no?

Why so much fear?

Why so much doubt?

They serve us how?

And yet we remain close to them?

Shake my head.

Excuses

#Excuses

Nothing is easier in life than coming up with great reasons why something didn’t work out or why something will never work out.

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.

Overcoming the critics is not a theory

Muhlenberg College
A metaphorically lonely photo and a door that appears to be crying out, “Notice me”.

 

Are you quietly dreaming of 2016 being a breakout year?

Are you fully aware that no one cares what you want?

Overcoming “no one cares” is like time travel into the future…arriving at a dreamy state only to discover it is better than the dream.

Here’s what i mean…

No one cares that i’ve written five daily, differently-themed blog posts for 2,469 consecutive days. And no one cares it started as an impossible goal to do it for 100 days only, in preparation for writing a book. And no one cares that i left a wonderfully comfortable 30-year career at Disney to put a dent in the Universe.

Go, even if frightened, even if no one cares.

You care.

Right?
