Balance is not a myth

Recording If Disney Ran Your Life yesterday at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Balance is not a myth.

Living like it is a myth – think about how low we set our bar for accomplishing personal vibrancy.

Scary.

But since “everyone’s doing it”, it can’t be that bad, right?

Never dreamed i’d become an avid morning person

Sable palmetto Palms
Florida State Tree, in the wild.

Lose an hour in the morning, and you will spend all day looking for it. — Richard Whately

My day is made between 5 – 7am.

The thought of sleeping past 5am makes me anxious.

Maybe i have issues or blindspots.

All of life is give and take.

In 1999 i became a Disney Institute (DI) Keynote Speaker and Facilitator.

DI multi-day programs began with breakfast at 7am. Facilitators arrived by 6am to set up and have the classroom doors open by 6:45am.

This is how i became a morning person.

Words that matter in organizational vibrancy

Disney cultural architect jeff noel
Everything speaks means all we do and don’t do tells the story about what we value.

 

Words that matter in organizational vibrancy:

Culture.

Intentionality.

By design.

Architected.

Blueprints.

Give a person a fish, feed her for a day. Teach her to fish and the rest is history.

i’m not here to hold your hand and tell you what to do. i’m here to show you your true north, how you get there, and convince you to go.

While trying to convince you reminding you this is your obligation as a great leader, it’s up to you to get there and if you decide not to go, well, i’m reminding you you have to live with not going.

Vibrancy comes down to one of two lifelong habits

Windermere Runners Club 2016
Between Middle & High School, roughly 700 students. About 20 show up for Summer running.

 

Vibrancy comes down to one of two lifelong habits:

  1. Prioritizing our schedule.
  2. Scheduling our priorities.

This is true in our personal life as well as professionally.

The first habit happens by default, the second, by design.

Think about it.

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 distinct outcome in the difference between the habits we nurture or don’t nurture – the contrast between surviving the daily grind or thriving in spite of it.
