Chip away at ignorance

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers
First Disney Institute business card from 1999 and a later version, before we moved to Celebration Place 200, from the 220 building.

Write to learn. Learn, to teach. Improve. Repeat. Learning and teaching have a devastating effect on my ignorance.

Continued from yesterday’s riff

Training. Teaching. Business. Uncharted territory is common. Risk taking is common. Growth is common.

Here’s an example of what i was describing yesterday about approval addiction.

Our son joins the cross country team in 10th grade and it was never about how well he ran.

It was about being part of a supportive team, developing relationships, setting goals, overcoming obstacles, persistence, recognizing progress, celebrating small victories unrelated to run times, and enjoying being a part of a loving community.

We gave consistent and positive feedback on traits like perseverance, courage, creativity, honesty, and perspective.

These are, after all, assets that last a lifetime, long after anyone remembers how fast you ran a 5k.

Dear Son

Here’s why i don’t want to tell you

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
If you know the AquaDuck, then you know where this was taken.

If i tell you you’ll never remember.

If i help you figure it out for yourself, you’ll never forget.

This Is Just For Me

Best place to earn credibility?

jeff noel author
Sent three of these out yesterday. Reminded why i wrote the book. A life guide in case our Son grew up without me.

Be careful with learning and teaching.

Both are important.

Teachers are not automatically modeling their messages.

Learners are not automatically applying lessons and transforming.

Take a personal inventory.

Brutally honest?

Credibility is in the living, not the teaching.

Credibility is in the living, not the learning.

Living, it turns out, is the best way to learn and to teach.
