Disney retirement kicks in today

Disney retirement kicks in today.

What?

Cheryl has had the equivalent of a two-week vacation since her official Disney retirement.

Yesterday began week three of Disney retirement. This means we’ll start feeling the reality of this permanent change. Why? Because a three-week vacation is not something we are used to.

We will create, maintain, and improve a new normal…

Guessing today is the day we go to the Apple store to shop for a Mac. It’s the tool she wants to use to help me create small business Magic.

Look both ways before crossing

Look both ways before crossing.

So many ways to read that first sentence.

  • From the photo above
  • From Cheryl’s recent Disney retirement
  • From what’s fun and what’s not

Ground control to Major Tom

Easy peasy travel day from Disneyland to Walt Disney World.

As it should be. 

No California traffic 7-8AM Sunday morning. We owned the freeways. 

Delta non-stop West to East is only 4.5 hours.  

Uber home from airport.

Great to be traveling with a colleague.

Hitting the ground running

What is unseen is the single Mickey Mouse balloon on the back side of the cake. The extra inch because it was easy to do and had a wow-factor to those who noticed.
Go the extra inch is a phrase i operationalized (made into a cultural habit) at Disney Institute from 2011-2014.

One of the key Disney business insights is understanding what industry expectations are and then exceeding those expectations in a scalable fashion so as to develop a reputation that not only leads the category, but potentially becomes the category.

Most podcasts are done in the same Host studio week after week.

Going on location and being in person with your podcast host(ess) is not normal.

Not normal is a great place to start.

Disney retirement in 2 days. Cheryl has.

Yoda’s karma is Magical.

May the Force be with you.

The force gained for Mid Life Celebration, LLC has the potential to destroy the resistance.

What resistance?

Doubt, fear, excuses, busy schedules, inertia.
