He was over-focused

Text thread screen shot
The post below is a copy/paste of the text riff i went on…

This 29-year old leader, parent, entrepreneur is smart. He downloaded all 100 If Disney Ran Your Life podcast episodes as each one was released weekly – two-years worth. Now episodes 96-100 are the only ones publicly available. But not for this over-focused young man.

Here’s the feedback riff…

To my ear you are leveling up.

The insight is THE most important.

Tactics may ebb and flow depending on a bunch of core milestones….

Age
Relationship status
Job experience
Leadership experience
Education (self-directed) (books, videos, podcasts, conversations)
Personal development
Goals
Vision (which may not be a thing for most of humanity)
Mistakes
Risk tolerance
Success
Spiritual beliefs
Attitude
Physical well-being
Current career
Home organization
Fun
Fear
Gratitude
Etc, etc

Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth screen shot
From 2006 release, finally watched it in 2021.

If everyone does a little bit, a lot gets done.

Whether in a small village, or a planet with 191 Countries.

It all comes down to a simple proposition.

Will we embrace a growth mindset or a closed mindset.

Meaning, will we accept responsibility, or will we cast blame?

Will we work together, or will we raise walls of division?

Ask, listen, repeat

Found chalk on the ground walking to the gym. Next thing you know…

What are you motivated by?

How do you stay motivated? 

What do you do when your motivation is challenged?

What makes you come alive each day?

What’s your morning routine like – how does it serve you? How did you discover it?

What’s your evening routine like – how does it serve you? How did you discover it?

Did you have fun yesterday? How?

Did you .think .differently yesterday? How?

Madonna and Mike turn 60

Mike at his surprise 60th birthday party last night. Madonna (left) turned 60 last year.

Madonna and Mike turn 60.

Such a privilege to reach 60.

Old is always someone older than you.

Because of this phenomenon, at 60 i don’t feel old. High schoolers, however, have to look at 60 as ancient.

And so it goes.

How old do you feel?

Take care of yourself.

The long way is the shortcut.

Improvisation is key as a Disney leader

Disney Keynote Speakers
Yesterday. It was a cold morning at home. Hat, gloves, many layers.

Disney Keynote Speakers
Removed the cap for the video recorded portion of the visit.

Rode a bicycle to Magic Kingdom at 7:30AM yesterday to film a two-minute video for a client.

When i travel, like i did last week, the Disney Passes in my wallet come out, to travel lighter.

Forgot to put them back in and wasn’t able to enter Magic Kingdom.

What to do?

Walk over and climb the stairs to Disney’s Contemporary Resort observation deck.

Make the most of the hand you are dealt.

It was fun.

And i’m reminded what a privilege it is to enter Magic Kingdom anytime i want.
