Bonus year?

What is the blessing of a bonus year?

To live to see Covid-19.

To live to see the world storming, forming, norming, and performing.

To potentially spend another Summer in Glacier, with Cheryl and Chapin.

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.

Dear Readers

Thank you Bob

Bob’s leadership as CEO since 2005 is remarkable and admirable.

Thank you Bob Iger.

Every Disney fan, including Cast Members, are indebted to you for your quiet, creative genius.

Every Disney share holder who is selling their shares this month are also indebted. Disney stock is up 38% in the last 12 months.

What does that have to do with anything?

It’s crazy and wonderful. No one saw 35+% in such a short time coming. Disney shareholders who are selling this month are ecstatic. If you’re not a shareholder, and, not selling, this means nothing to you. Essentially, you do not care about any of this.

These blogs are finishing their 11 consecutive year. No one saw this coming either. If you are a casual reader, it’s crazy to think about the 4,000 days writing five a day – 20,000 posts. Essentially, you do not care about any of this either.

If you consistently read these posts (like i do every day) because it does something for you, i appreciate your craziness. You certainly have to be as crazy as the author.

Five a day, every day, for the past 11 years.

Insane on every account.

Thank you for your craziness.

It’s inspiring.

PS. If these two or so daily hours were taken away, i’d feel punished and incomplete.

Balance (yeah right)

Prevention is the best cure

Work for a Company like Disney for 30 years and try to not be over-focused. Island time. Ever heard of it? It’s a cool place.

Prevention is the best cure.

Prevent what?

Burnout, and everything that burnout attracts.

So yeah, prevention.

Takes focus and discipline.

Be a beast at focusing on the basics.

Be relentlessly disciplined to keep your eye on the ball.

The ball, by the way, is the basics.

It's All We Have

Three underrated personal assets

This photo would have never happened had i not started my own business – to help people and organizations do their scariest, most important work.

Three underrated personal assets:

  • Time
  • Discipline
  • Focus

My life has been on an upward spiral since 1999, when i was promoted to Disney Institute.

To teach is to learn twice.

i learned to be intentional.

i learned to over-focus on things i used to under-focus on or ignore: time, discipline, focus.

Nothing is the same as pre-1999, not even close.

Talk about joy and gratitude, wow!
