What Happens To Your Personal Culture When You Refuse To Settle For Less?

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Main Lobby, Walt Disney World

Culture is what people think and do without thinking. Disney Cast are taught from day one (even earlier actually) that excellence is the only acceptable standard. Boomers, if you’ve never worked or lived in this type of environment, it may be challenging to understand or comprehend.

Boomers, Stay With jeff noel On This (Disney) Train Of Thought

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Walt Disney World

In the three years since jeff noel began blogging at Mid Life Celebration, he’s written virtually nothing about his long career. This has been by design. noel has waited patiently for social media to become not only widely accepted (like microwave ovens and cell phones) and professionally accepted as a social norm, but also accepted as the new context for the way the world communicates thoughts and ideas.

PS. Long ago, noel posted notices, disclaimers, etc, that every one of his websites and blogs are strictly his personal opinion. This continues to be his standard.

Dear Readers

How often do you think about improving things? Considering that the road to excellence has no finish line, this ought to be all day, everyday.

My “work pedigree” insists every employee aim for perfection and settle for excellence.

“Dear Readers” was a brainstormed theme for writing these 5 blogs, but “Dear Son” & “Authenticity” won out instead.

You know that there’s more to this at the Next Blog

Idea Virus MLC-1N1

Notice the date in this picture? It’s today, January 16, 2009. So?

Google Alert
Google Alert

OK, good morning world.  How do you start your day?  Same way every time, or each day different?

Is it a chore?  Are you anxious or worried about all that will be expected of you?

Is it exciting?  An adventure in which you get to help others by what you do?

Each morning begins the same for me.  On my knees, three prayers. Kiss my wife and son as they sleep. Turn on all the computers. Head downstairs to make some coffee.

While coffee is brewing, head back upstairs to check emails on two computers.

Google alerts come in every day around a few key words.

The point is this, in case you haven’t figured this out yet: An idea virus (credit to Seth Godin) is something good that spreads because of the Internet.

It spreads much faster, and much farther, than without the Internet.

You get this right?  It’s common sense but not common…..

PS. Never asked them to post this on the company’s Facebook page. They did it anyway. Seems it was a good idea that spread.
