This was the timeframe that an unusually weird Disney layoff provided the gift of feeling vulnerable for the first time (at the time, i was in my 24th year at Disney).
This was the catalyst for creating a Plan B even though the layoffs were done.
The best time to worry about your next job is when you don’t need to.
My next job revolved around the dream of being the captain of my own ship – a solo entrepreneur. To take everything i learned in 30 years at Disney and retire at 55 and begin the quest to put a dent in our Universe.
PS. Unusually weird means that the process didn’t make sense to me, nor to literally all of my colleagues.
Can you recall the last morning where you were dreading waking up?
What if you couldn’t?
i cannot recall the last time i wasn’t looking forward to the day ahead with childlike entreprenurial excitement.
There used to be a time (15 consecutive years, 1984 – 1999) when it took three separate alarm clocks (none with the real time, and all with extra time added to the actual time) to wake me up – after numerous, repetitive hitting of the snooze buttons.
