You are on stage every day

Intermission at the Walt Disney theater. Photo taken from the edge of the stage. The performers must perform even if they’re not feeling well.

Separating onstage from backstage is a key component of the Disney Magic.

Onstage is defined as anywhere that a Cast Member can see strollers and babies. Backstage is anywhere that you can’t.

On stage is not only a physical place, it’s also a psychological place, and you must act like there’s nowhere else you’d rather be even if that’s not true.

As an adult, especially if you are a parent, you do this all the time when you’re around young people.

‘Tis the season to be onstage – all day, everyday.

Are you organized with your structure and processes to live like this? What if you were? Why aren’t you? Or, how does this sound, how does it feel to know that you’ve overcome the way you used to be? Remembering how it felt impossible and comparing that to how it feels now, what advice would you have for others who are feeling that it’s impossible now?

If Disney Ran Your Life official podcast release

Disney employee podcast
Listened yesterday morning May 8 walking to the gym. And again this morning (photo here at 6:38am) with our Son.
Disney leadership podcast
We made it under 15 minutes. This makes me smile.
Disney employee podcast
Listened a second time this morning.

If Disney Ran Your Life official podcast release is coming in June 2019.

When today’s posts go live, this will be old news; however, the excitement in the moment right now (May 9) is exceptional.

Disney employee podcast
Sent this to Jody yesterday, May 8.

Jody will be in Orlando soon and we will record a couple “official” episodes at Walt Disney World.

Try to imagine the mindset of someone willing to do (and pay for) 22 practice episodes.

Imagine also, if possible, someone who brings their podcast host from Seattle to Kuwait to record the first “Official” episode of If Disney Ran Your Life.

Dream, Create, Inspire.

Means nothing without action.

Son, you will be gifted with countless opportunities to grow. Many of them will be obvious right fits. Many will not.

Learn to thoughtfully consider the not-a-natural-fit opportunities. They may lead you to a beach or sumpin’ and it could be beautiful.

Dear Son

Lightening up is good for your likability

Forehead thermometer
Blindspots are so obvious to everyone but the person with the blindspot. The person’s blindspot is always there but just out of sight.

 

Lightening up is good for your likability. In business and in personal relationships.

Seems so obvious.

Yet.

Yet we struggle.

Behaving in a mirror image with the way we think is called integrity.

Allowing our busy schedule, and the stress it brings, to blindly have ourselves behave differently than we think is called a blindspot.

Dear Son, this is one of the many more important lessons i’d like you to practice and hone before you graduate High School.

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.
