Everything i do is influenced by a lifetime at Disney

In the real world, it’s inspiring to live with a serenity-prayer mindset…

If you have a problem, look for a solution. If you can’t find a solution, forget about it. 

In the “Disney World”, it’s inspiring to live like the quote Walt said in the photo above…

Exchange ideas until you find a solution to an impossible challenge.

Is this the first step for anything?

cultural adjustment cycle
In nature, there is ebb and flow. Same with belief. Expect to have doubt and fear with your beliefs. Spend your life chipping away at everything inhibiting your belief.

 

Is this the first step for anything?

Belief?

First Principles Thinking – irrefutable truth?

Every once in awhile, the Universe offers you a clue that something you came up with on your own is actually something rare, and valuable.

Yesterday’s email included the daily dose of Hugh McLeod at Gaping Void Art.

It was a link in Hugh’s daily message that led to the screen shot coming up…

In the center of the screen shot below is the word-for-word phrase i use to tell others what’s different about my Disney Approach.

Deconstruct then reconstruct.

 

i’ve spent my life deconstructing Disney’s DNA and reconstructing it in brilliantly simplistic fashion.

Disney Keynote Speakers
This is the way i describe what 30 years at Disney, especially the last 15 teaching at Disney Institute has allowed me to make my life’s work.

First principles thinking is about deconstructing what looks complex and then reconstructing it in a simple breakdown of reality – let’s call it irrefutable truth.

Dear Son

Mr. Disney, just what do you do?

Disney Customer Service Keynote Speaker
This isn’t a big deal at Disney. Why? Because this type of story is happening all day, every day. To an outsider it sounds like a special incident. To our Cast, it’s simply business as usual. can you comprehend that happening in your organization?

 

Imagine a child asking a 57-year old Walt Disney, “Mr. Disney, just what do you do?”

Walt would respond that he no longer drew cartoons, nor came up with the ideas. He would add that he’s actually more like a bumble bee, going around from place to place in the organization and sort of pollinating everything.

So, Mr. jeff, just what to you do?

Wanted to share with you that the organizational blueprints i always speak of make up the core content of my business. My purpose is to do speeches and advising for people and organizations who want to change the world.

i’ve deconstructed, and then reconstructed, Disney’s DNA. From 30 years of living it and teaching it, i’ve found powerfully simplistic ways to enable any employee at any level to use the content for all five core topics. Equally, any company in any industry can use it as well.

What i was driving at all along (and sorry, it’s challenging when it’s just words on a screen) was to illustrate that the Purple Balloon story is a great Customer Service story, yet it’s simply business as usual at Disney. i think many readers miss the point that it’s the culture and it happens all day, every day. And that it is the result of deeply intentional structure and process, blueprints if you will.

About Mid Life Celebration

The DNA of midlife crisis

midlife celebration
midlife celebration is steeped in love – of others and of self

The history, the beginning, is the DNA of any company, country, movement, idea. Midlife crisis became a phrase in the 1960’s.

Midlife celebration didn’t become an official (and legitimate) Internet idea until Orlando resident, jeff noel, formed Mid Life Celebration, LLC in 2009.

At it’s core, midlife celebration is life’s greatest wakeup call. And our opportunity to:

ReThink – RePrioritize – ReCommit

Time to leave society’s herd? The movement toward personal peace and contentment won’t be found within the herd. You and I can only find it using Mid Life Celebration’s foundation that life has five big choices.
