Without context this is stupid. With context, it’s .brilliant

.think .differently

That simple two-word image says everything.

It preaches what it practices.

Who puts a period before a word?

Why would a person do this?

It’s .stupid

When you change what you see, what you see changes.

You cannot consistently perform in a manner which is inconsistent with the way you see yourself.

Brand like you mean it

Disney Keynote Speaker
Cleaning files (found this pic), thinking about marketing, and the release of the TEDx Talk.

Sometimes the small business marketing opportunities that are the most compelling to clients who’ve never heard of you are put aside by me because personal marketing and humility seem like opposites.

Every day, do something that scares you.

So like putting yourself out there?

Possibly.

Probably.

Son, remember this during your freshman year. From the very beginning, dream about how you can offer something(s) to the world that it would gladly pay you for.

When you graduate, you’ll be ahead of others who are under-focused on this or ignore this for four important years.

Valentine’s Day

Sand Hill Crane injured
Everyone notices stuff. How many of us connect what we see to improving our understanding of the world and our place in it?

Let your passions define you.

Our attitude drives our passions.

This is freedom for some and a prison sentence of some.

Love yourself?

Some do, some don’t.

Depends on our attitude.

i love that today is Friday, December 14, 2018.

Brand You: Tell your personal story

Great reminder about staying focused on the basics.

 

 

(Above) Brand You: Tell your personal story.

Great reminder.

The year was 2008 or 2009.

Our new Disney Institute Vice President, Jeff James, often walked past the cube i shared with Jack Santiago.

By the way, because office space was so limited, nearly everyone at Disney Institute shared a cube.

On one brief encounter, i invited Jeff into my cube and used Jack’s bookshelf (all my business books were at my home office) as the center of the vision i had for Disney Institute.

i said to Jeff, “Jeff, in the children’s video genre, what is the average household percentage of Disney videos in every children’s category?”

Our educated guess – from personal experience – is the percentage is overwhelmingly high for Disney videos.

Then i asked, pointing at Jack’s bookshelves, “What if every business leader across the globe had an overwhelmingly high percentage of Disney Institute business books on their office bookshelves?”

Currently, Be Our Guest is the only published “Disney Institute” business book.

My Summer 2018 focus is to get the next seven Disney and Disney Institute business books written, then published.

The business world is waiting, even if they are unaware these books are coming.

And this morning, i’m just days away from the first of six Summer writing retreats. All seven books are currently in the two-thirds done stage.
