Happy Mother’s Day 2019.

What a gift to be a parent, especially a Mom.

You are an incredible Mom.

This Is Just For Me

One second a day app

Disney Innovation Speakers
Yesterday while biking to Magic Kingdom. Note date and time in upper right.

Was reminded yesterday of the One-Second-A-Day app.

Had downloaded it a couple weeks ago.

Forgot about it and kinda forgot yesterday was January 1.

Got out of bed and took the first one-second video.

We are creatures of habit and there’s a decent chance i will struggle to remember to do this every day.

Anything that’s new and different from our habits and rituals is always at risk of failing.

Even good and fun things that don’t take long.

Imagine the odds when it’s painful (changing a habit) and not fun (because it’s painful) and takes what seems like forever.

Update (today, March 2): It lasted two days and haven’t done it since January 3. Why? Guessing because it wasn’t that important.

Happy New Day

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
No way. None. Zip. Zero. Zilch.

Happy New Day.

Nearly a year ago on January 1, 2018, most of us said, “Happy New Year” for a couple of days.

Eventually, we stopped saying this wonderful greeting.

Why?

Because two, three, four or more weeks later, “Happy New Year” seems off-base.

In an effort to keep the excitement, wonder, and hope of a new year alive, i coined “Happy New Day” as a way to humor myself and honor the true gift that each and every day brings.

Note. As i write on this December 19 morning, we are 13 days from “Happy New Year 2019”.

The gift of another ordinary day – i’ll drink to that

Kentucky bourbon
Kentucky bourbon in the hotel room. Very few people have the willpower to drink just the right amount – which ranges from none to half an ounce. Imagine an elite athlete or world-class performer drinking just enough to become impaired before they do their thing. They’d never do it.

 

Kentucky bourbon
Doesn’t take much to produce a buzz. Like a kid in a candy shop, right? Somehow, candy shops make overindulging in sugar seem like a great idea. Same with this hotel room arrangement.

 

The gift of another ordinary day – i’ll drink to that.

One Question A Day?

Google Happy New Day and what happens?

jeff noel Disney speakers
Love that my Disney Institute colleagues, who know my business, have adopted .think .differently to help them market their message. In this case, they’ve heard it over and over.

 

Google Happy New Day and what happens?

You discover the phrase you coined has been coined already.

But how does that work if you’ve never heard or seen the phrase before, does it exist?

Happy New Day.

Go.

PS. One of my favorite Disney Institute phrases is D’Think.
