Over-managing is not micromanaging

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park (GNP). St Mary Lake (middle), Continental Divide (horizon).

Over-managing and micromanaging are polar opposites. Over-managing is about being intentional where you used to be unintentional. It’s about over-focusing on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

The Next Lecture

Over-focus is the ultimate habit

Disney Keynote speaker
Tradition when leaving Glacier to return to Disney calls for one last photo in Apgar from the shore of Lake McDonald. A present reminder (one of hundreds or thousands) that there’s a remote possibility this is the last trip ever.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of this particular action:

Over focus on the things you use to under focus on or ignore.

Strip away all the non-essentials.

Learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

There, you will begin your journey toward peace and contentment.

Moment

A moment in time in Apgar Village on Glacier’s West side. The 12 Park cameras snap a photo every six minutes but you don’t know exactly when, so you have to manipulate the moment in order to capture it.

Here’s a train of thought for the new decade that begins in three days:

  • Moment
  • Hour
  • Day
  • Week
  • Month
  • Quarter
  • Year
  • Decade
  • Life

If Disney Ran Your Life, you would learn to instinctively over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

You learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

The power that a decision we make in a moment has the power to grow and influence by the hour.

Rethink

Did you pre-order resolutions?

Stop and smell the roses, or, watch the sunset. Last night on the second story roof. Without pausing a busy life, resolutions, their power, and a plan to commit, are ignored.

Did you pre-order resolutions?

What?

Your New Years resolutions, did you order them in advance?

i think it must be my Disney upbringing.

What?

How i laugh at the old me and how i approached New Years resolutions for the first 45 years of my life.

The transformational power of Disney’s world-class, time-tested business approach has created a personal culture that is by design, not by default.

i have learned to be intentional where i use to be unintentional, or oblivious.

Reading between the lines: if you wait until December to decide on your New Years resolution, you’ve waited too long – waiting too long means you’re not committed.

The thesis statement for how to transform your attitude

jeff noel orlando speaker
So yeah, removed two “my’s” and one “i”…The writing here subconsciously describes my daily striving to improve my life using what i learned from 30 years at Disney.

 

 

The thesis statement for how to transform your attitude.

 

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

 

The writing here subconsciously describes daily striving to improve life using what was learned from 30 years at Disney.

Our brain is the most powerful tool we have.

Easy to forget.

Don’t.

Ever.
