Building a Disney company

Baltimore winter sunrise
Nice way to start today.

It’s a cold (26) Baltimore morning on the hotel’s 10th floor. The sunrise view is beautiful from our large window.

One of the amazing benefits of being over-focused has been on the intentionality behind me designing a business model that allows working from anywhere to be as easy as working from home.

You can observe a lot by watching.

Leadership Commitment challenges

to do list for graphic design
These are graphic design to-do’s.

Leadership commitment challenges has a different context here than it does at Lane8.org (today). 

The context here is how you lead after the honeymoon effect wears off. There’s always excitement and high hopes when things are new and shiny. We easily rise to the occasion; whether it’s a promotion, a new initiative being rolled out, a corporate merger that is supposed to enhance both cultures into a better, and unified, one.

But eventually and predictably, things are harder and take longer than estimated.

When we grow weary, and the people we lead grow weary, how do we continue to show up with a Day One enthusiasm?

Of course it’s challenging to sustain Day One energy, focus, creativity, and excitement over the long haul (a lifetime?).

Yet this is the essence of great leadership.

Unwavering belief.

And the ability to excite, inspire, and motivate others as if it’s Day One, every day.

Be mindful that knowing and doing are opposites

the new mindfulness
What does this mean – the new mindfulness? Photo: yesterday at the grocery checkout lane.

 

strategy vs execution
Theory looks super amazing on paper. Yesterday on Twitter.

 

 

strategy vs execution
What you know is meaningless if you don’t create world-class habits from your knowledge.

 

 

To know is to do. To know and not do is to not yet know.

 

Brilliant strategy is worthless without the personal wherewithal to create, improve, and sustain transformational change.

Routines will make or break you

speaker hype
Theory? For sure. Reality? You have to decide for yourself.

 

You’re going to read this and think, duh, this is obvious.

Theory is obvious.

Applying theory successfully is rare.

Besides grit – personally or organizationally – the other critical success factor for world-class results is over-focusing on the best habits.

Habits and culture are synonymous.

Routines will make or break you or an organization.

There’s even a time to change and enhance great habits, and there’s a time to not waiver. Knowing when to hold on and when to let go is an art. The more you practice it, the better you get.

Insight: Do you have a morning routine?

Does it begin the night before with an early bedtime?

Say what you want about being a night owl.

No harm, no foul.

i used to be one, for two decades.

An overwhelming and long-term attribute that successful people swear their success to is having a consistent morning routine.

A routine that includes a focused morning plan.

The early bird gets the worm.

Disney’s secret for success is really this simple

Disney Culture Speaker
Disney’s secret isn’t a secret, it’s common sense business wisdom.

 

Disney’s secret for success is really this simple. We over-focus on the same things others under-focus on or ignore. We are intentional where others are unintentional.
