Love .thinking .differently about photo angles.

Smile, it’s a nice reflection on you.

This is another organizational principle that we (Disney) over-focus on. Our competitors under-focus on, or ignore, smiling as a world-class brand builder.

Dude, i’m telling you, smiling is gold.

Disney ego

Beautiful in the photo. Transformational for the day.

What is Disney ego?

For starters, never heard of it. It’s a phrase, just now made up. The phrase’s inspiration came from the Disney notion that good and very good aren’t good enough.

It was weird writing it, yet knowing it’s the truth makes you wonder what outsiders might think.

Think of it this way, can you imagine Walt Disney saying, “Um, that’s good enough. No need to sweat the details.”

Was it a test?

simple contract
Less than 12 hours ago.

 

Being organized helps you make better decisions.

Yesterday i was asked to sign a last-minute contract.

The contract was very short and only contained language intended to get something i never do – i do not to allow anyone to own a copy of my keynote speech.

My agent is crystal clear about this and is the one working directly with the end client.

It begs the question, “Was it a test?”

Busy people in urgent and tense situations often agree to something they wouldn’t agree to when there’s no pressure.

Why?

To make the tension go away.

i added to the tension exponentially when i told my agent, “i hope not being able to record my speech isn’t a deal breaker.”

If it is a deal breaker, my agent and i lose a nice paycheck and miss the opportunity to provide a deserving audience with transformational Disney business insights.

No times four

Disney speakers
The real adventure is creating organizational vibrancy. Photo: Car parked next to ours at the grocery store.

 

No spark, no fire.

No fire, no hope.

No hope, no plan.

No plan, no transformation.

The value received is intangible and multiplies rapidly

Lyft receipt
Orlando Keynotes mean if i take a Lyft or Uber, it’ll never be to an airport.

 

 

i love traveling.

i hate being gone.

That’s why my out-of-Orlando Keynote Speeches are priced the way they are.

The client-value multiplies rapidly and exponentially for an organization when they don’t have to travel to Walt Disney World.

The value i receive is also tangible – the number of days i’m home for breakfast and dinner with my family multiplies rapidly.
