Do the math at graduation

We hung this banner yesterday. Will our home ever have need for another one in our lifetime?

Do the math at graduation.

The only other time we could think about doing this again is if we see a grandchild graduate.

Two grandparents spent the afternoon at our home yesterday. Renato’s grandmother and Connor’s grandmother.

Must be a cool feeling to live long enough to see your child(ren) experience the same significant parental milestones as you.

Crisis or celebration?

Last night.
Busy doing nothing.

You are in charge of your choices.

Dispute this if you must.

If you do, who then decides for you if it isn’t you who is in charge of your choices?

So yes, we are in charge of the thought-choices, and action-choices, we make.

You may feel you have no choice but to live and work where you live and work, yet you will never convince me that you aren’t in charge of the choices you make about your thoughts.

The thoughts you pick pick you.

Crisis or celebration?

Where you are now and where you want to be may be different.

That’s okay.

Life is a journey and if privileged, you get to age and if you get to age, that means you have time to hone your beliefs, crystallize your values, and have your behaviors align with your values and beliefs.

One Question A Day?

Have you read Mid Life Celebration?

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Risk like you mean it.

Have you read Mid Life Celebration?

As a slow reader, it takes me about 75 minutes total.

Faster readers can do it in one hour.

When was the last time you read an entire book in an hour?

At last count (not including all the reads before it was published), i’ve read it 31 times.

At $4.99, the electronic version on Amazon is yours right now.

Honey, It's For You

The cool thing is letting go

Mid Life Celebration jeff noel
Simple.

 

The cool thing is letting go.

What others think is none of your business.

A strong argument can be defended with a single point.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

About Mid Life Celebration

Disney’s modified authenticity

Great escapes
Can we architect a life that doesn’t require escaping? Absolutely.

 

Forced perspective and guiding the guest experience are two ways we modify our Guests’ experience to significantly enhance their vacation.

On Main Street USA for example, we make a two-story building look like a three-story building.

How?

The first floor is 7/8 scale. Second floor, 5/8 scale, and third is 3/8 scale.

We have the perception of a tree-lined street on Main Street. In reality the Live Oaks (100′ wide and 60′ tall full grown) are trimmed like giant bonsai trees – so they never block the view of Cinderella Castle.

There were no concrete main streets in 1901 (the time period Main Street reflects), but with the addition of the trolly car rails you never like about concrete (and how “fake” the setting is).
