Creativity, Disney-Style

Jody Maberry sent this photo yesterday.

Creativity, Disney-Style.

Yesterday at Theater Circo Price in Madrid i was the third speaker and the first speaker after the morning break.

Advantageous position (won’t belabor why, just trust me).

Speaking with simultaneous translation is like (car metaphor) having your mind on the gas peddle and your vocals on the brake peddle.

Son, challenging myself to do the same thing i always do in a way i rarely do, excites me.

Enjoy the Summer of 2018, but don’t

Zephyrhills water tower
Zephyrhills water tower. Yesterday. Connecting – authentically, transparently, and enthusiastically.

 

Zephyrhills water tower
Zephyrhills water tower – the pace here is slower, the people are older, and the willingness to change seems less than it does where i live.

 

Enjoy the Summer of 2018, but don’t rest on your laurels.

Yesterday’s meeting was planned a month or so ago.

There are a handful of Disney Institute clients i worked with that made significant progress by adapting Disney’s world-famous, time-tested business principles.

i have remained in contact with them in the almost four-years since i retired from Disney Institute.

Why?

Because i can still help them.

And as i confirmed yesterday, they still like the help i provide.

Common sense but not common

St Mary Lake
After a 7am-ish breakfast, the day began with the one-mile drive to St Mary Lake overlook.

 

St Mary Lake
Never gets old.

The time of day changes the image.

The viewing angle (lakeside) changes the image.

Zooming out changes the image.

Walking back to the car changes the image.

Wind, over time, changes the image.

 

Nothing ventured nothing gained. Rather try and fail than not try. i dared a 15-year old to jump in ice-cold water at Virginia Falls with the caveat that i’d do it too. He didn’t take the dare, but i’m glad i dared him. Maybe next year.

.

Note to self for posterity: 08.01 Monday…St Mary Lake before breakfast, 10am Little Chief boat tour to Baring Falls, hike to St Mary Falls, then hike to Virginia Falls, boat back at 3pm, saw bear, relax at room and lobby for wifi, dinner Two Dog Flats, Logan Pass for three hours, dessert at Two Dog Flats…PS dared Chapin to go in cold water up to neck. Maybe next year.

Walt Disney and Roy Disney were diametrically opposed on profit

Walt Disney Blue name tag

Walt Disney and his older brother Roy had the same critical business vision, profit, yet their unique approaches where polar opposites.

Roy Disney saw profit as the goal.

Walt saw it as the reward.

Our attitude about life is similar.

We spend so much time working for a living.

Do we live to work, or work to live?

Do we measure our success by our paycheck or by our happiness?
