Go the extra inch

go the extra inch
Yesterday at Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

Go the extra inch.

So easy.

So simple.

A fraction of the effort compared to the extra mile.

Any effort that surprises and delights creates the “wow-factor”.

Creating unexpected and delightful surprises can and should become a habit.

Just like not going the extra mile all the time becomes a habit.

Going the extra mile is a flawed concept.

Did a TEDx Talk about it.

There’s a time and a place for the extra mile, but it’s the exception not the rule.

We insidiously let what we can’t do (the extra mile) stop us from what we can do (the extra inch).

Th other insight is that we cheat ourselves out of so much joy, meaning, and purpose because most of us never use the extra inch for our own personal transformation – moving from survival mode to thriving mode.

Why?

Because we let what we can’t do (extra mile) stop us from what we can do (extra inch).

20 years of offsite field research

Twenty years of offsite (off-Disney) field research around the world has revealed a unique opportunity to gift the world with the antithesis of going the extra mile.

It’s a gift that provides the solution to delivering world-class customer service that far exceeds the going the extra mile hypothesis.

Note: After serving for 15 years in Walt Disney World operations, i then spent another 15 years creating Magic as a Disney Institute speaker, and have been running my own “Disney” speaking business since 2014.

Going the extra mile is a flawed concept

Emirates Skywards
This trip will be old news by the time this post goes live on May 28.

Going the extra mile is a flawed concept and what to do instead.

This is what the TED Talk covered.

American University of Kuwait (AUK) is the host venue.

The speech is a month away and then a month after the speech, this post gets published. Weird. And cool.

Everyday is guaranteed to be ordinary

quote about balance
Balance should not be elusive.

 

Today, like every single day since April Fools Day 2009, five brief posts are offered up to relish the interconnectedness of mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

The purpose of these five daily blog posts is to warm up for the day ahead. To contemplate how we will balance our daily energy so we never feel unbalanced.

Everyday is guaranteed to be ordinary. Extra-ordinary days are up to us. Note to self: be an over-achiever.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
