Disney Leadership Book

i should probably celebrate with something extra-ordinary

Disney Institute Healthcare Keynote 2011
One of the thousands of Disney Best Practices Keynotes i delivered from 1999-2014.


Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay – staying in great hotels never got old.


Great Disney leaders take time to deliver personalized recognition, meaning that they need to know how each employee likes to be recognized, and honor that – versus traditional cookie-cutter  programs.

i should probably celebrate with something extra-ordinary.


Because today’s five posts complete the seventh consecutive year of of daily writing on five differently-themed websites.

Why five sites?

  1. Mind – we think
  2. Body – we move
  3. Spirit – we feel
  4. Money – we earn
  5. HQ – we dwell


After a lifetime at Disney unsuccessfully searching internally for a role model for balance, i had the aha moment of a lifetime…

Wake up jeff, quit looking. Become the change you seek.




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.

This website is about our mental attitude. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s physical health website, click here.

Congratulations on 7 incredible years of writing!! Seems like only yesterday you started. Time does fly when you are having fun.


Job well done – bravo! You are inspiring to so many, many that you will never know.

Donna, thank you for your ‘loyalty’. You have many ways you can being your days, and knowing you begin many of them the same way Bob and i do is one of life’s mysteries.

Thanks for being here from the start.

Not such a mystery at all. Millions and millions of people start their day with a cup of coffee and a newspaper. Same here. Newspaper replaced by iPad. I have six stops in the morning, weather, jeff, local news, international news, emails, Facebook. Usually in that order. Creature of habit? Yep.
