Encouragement, challenge, accountability

Disney executive speakers
To say i have a treasure trove of Disney insight, history, and insider knowledge is such an understatement. Erin Wallace replaced Lee Cockerell when Lee retired on July 28, 2006. Erin’s soundbite for the Disney Leader Basics was Know, Manage, Teach.

Encouragement, challenge, accountability.

The attitude and expectations you focus on help attract the actual results you see.

Jody knew and still knows, i’m nervous about podcasting.

It’s new for me.

i’m especially inexperienced.

Jody and i are also new at working together.

Jody Maberry and i recorded the first If Disney Ran Your Life podcast yesterday.

Like anything you are inexperienced at, you immediately think about ways to improve next time, and not only immediately after, but in the days and even hours before you do something…

Prior to the podcast, i was brainstorming marketing soundbites. Content summaries to insert in the podcast.


Soundbites help solve for, “What’s in it for me if i listen?”


Encouragement, challenge, accountability.

Reread until it makes sense, and it will.

Who teaches us this?

Are owls wise? Are we?


Who teaches us this?

Theory is meaningless without action.

Knowlege isn’t power.

Knowledge is only the seed of power.

Power comes from action.

Taking risks is risky. So is playing it safe.

Simplifying a complex midlife reality

jeff noel signing the book Mid Life Celebration
Wrote a book about the paradox of midlife crisis


Harvard Business Review ran an article eight years ago about how it is extraordinarily difficult for someone who has comprehensive knowledge to easily communicate it so someone else can see what they see.

It’s called the curse of knowledge.

Explained here: Tappers versus listeners.

Midlife crisis is finally arriving at the place in life we worked decades to get to, but in looking around we think to ourselves, “This isn’t what I wanted.”

There’s a book that describes the exact opposite mindset of a mind life crisis.

It’s called Mid Life Celebration.
