Dear Executive, i owe you a sentence

Disney Customer Service speaker jeff noel
Is your culture worth defending? How many others besides you feel that way?

 

Dear Executive, i owe you a sentence.

Working hard for seven consecutive days to reduce a volume of information into one sentence.

Why?

She wants two options for next steps.

i could go on and on.

Dangerous.

Why?

Because i must practice what i preach and i only preach what i practice.

i preach simplicity, focus, discipline, and intentionality.

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa was home for six years

Disney's Grand Floridian Resort
Yesterday walking in for 7am meeting.

 

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa was home for six years. It was nice to go back yesterday. But it was weird to have a 7am meeting there. That hasn’t happened since 1999.

Reminded me of the those good old days, except for one thing – i was dressed in running shorts and a t-shirt.

Met a man that can best be described as a passionate risk-taker. No, not Walt Disney. But a man with a dream nonetheless.

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.

The stuff no one tells you

The stuff no one tells you.

It all sounds so good – i mean, the stuff they tell you – which sounds like streets of gold, and glorious shouting from the rooftops with the Queen’s royal trumpets wafting a siren’s song.

Try publishing a book and you’ll get pitched a long list of amazingly helpful products to help you promote your book. Things like creating a wonderful video book trailer.

Thing is, how are you going to get anyone to watch it besides your family and friends, even if it’s an amazing video?

Aha.

You desperately want to believe your book is special and that it will bring you the financial freedom and reputation you couldn’t catch in your corporate gig.

If only.

So you get sucked in with all the hype and dreamy possibilities.

The day began like the day before

Marriott room art
Just above my hotel room desk, a picture of an “old-time” writer setup.

 

Courtyard Marriott room
Yesterday morning 6am…Baltimore, MD. Below the picture (above), the writer’s modern day equivalent,  a Mac.

 

The day began like the day before…

Like every morning, yesterday’s began with the same two-hour writing investment. Five differently-themed blogs on five separate websites.

i write so prolifically, not because i have to, or feel a need to have followers, but simply because i enjoy writing and and because it makes me a more intentional, more focused thinker and doer.

Good morning DC

Airport sign about being fearless
Forget about what the world needs for a minute – what do YOU need?

 

Let me start by sharing that daily writing is exceptionally cathartic.

Good morning DC.

i’m not here because i want to be, i’m here because i’m doing a favor for a friend.

No harm, no foul.

He’s the CIO of the 5th largest medical (in their specialty) practice in the United States.

He recommended me to his CEO and the CEO wants me to meet the top eight executives and provide a one-hour executive overview.

As a small business entrepreneur, time is precious. Investing time usually has an economic outcome. This one has potential, but doesn’t come with a guarantee.

The remaining four posts today will continue this train of thought.
