Pain shouldn’t be permission

Hidden Lake Trail Glacier
Glacier National Park (GNP). September 2017. Going-to-the-Sun mountain, left.

Pain forces even the innocent to lie.

Final 120 Days

You reap what you sow

Disney Keynote Speaker
A potential Indonesian client is using a consulting company to find a Disney Theme Park speaker. On a video Zoom call, the consultants saw all the Disney “trophies” on the bookcase behind me and suggested i include some photos in the proposal. Included this photo and few others i took yesterday to add in the proposal i sent last night.

You reap what you sow.

You don’t win a Disney Lifetime Achievement Award, the award is bestowed on you. You receive it because the rigorous and anonymous Disney selection criteria and process focuses on behaviors. This is such a big deal that being nominated is considered a high honor.

Once nominated, names are removed and only the Cast Member’s behaviors are shared with the selection committees.

In the photo above, Partners In Excellence was Disney’s original Lifetime Achievement Award. It was retired after 15 years and replaced with the Walt Disney Legacy Award in 2012.

It's All We Have

Happy 60th birthday jeff noel

Disney Institute Speaker jeff noel
Biking to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge this morning. (and hey, the upload issue wasn’t an issue)

How many reputations do you have?

Trick question.

If you live six decades, you’ve come in contact with many people.

How many reputations do you have?

Have you figured it out yet?

Humanity’s cardinal sin #1

Family room television
How do you judge your Television and social media consumption?

 

 

Humanity’s cardinal sin #1…

We judge ourselves on our intentions.

Others judge us on our behaviors.

 

What if i judged myself like everyone else judges me?

And before you go pointing fingers, “Oh yeah, Jeff should take his own advice.”, evaluate yourself with the same critical eye as you do me.

If that self-evaluation doesn’t humble you, repeat the process until it does.

It’s a human condition so none of us should feel guilty in the discovery.

Guilt should be owned only if we do nothing with the revelation.

Everything Is Important

Had to think for a moment, and it bothered me

WPS basketball playoffs
We “force” him to go to after school activities simply to be exposed to social situations.

 

Had to think for a moment, and it bothered me that i couldn’t instantaneously remember the fourth one.

  1. Honesty
  2. Behave admirably
  3. Personally responsibility
  4. Self-control

He learned the first one as a young boy, the other three were added over the years. Behaving admirably was added in elementary school. Three and four added during adolescence.

A teen’s attitude is shaped by many things. One of the most obvious, and most taken for granted, is the home.

PS. “Initiative” was added after entering ninth grade. On deck for this Summer is “fun”.
