Edgy sells. Why? It’s rare, hence valuable.

Edgy, but not quite edgy enough.

How long does it take to come up with a title?

Can you imagine publishing a self-help or personal development book?

There’s a ton of competition.

Some get special, coveted placement.

Your blindspot, from an astute observer, is…

Clarity.

What a gift.

The random opportunity was extraordinary.

Here’s the response from today’s jungle jeff post

Disney Keynote Speaker request
Most communication i receive from unknown people is for advice. Sprinkled in are requests for keynote speaking, like this one yesterday. Feb 2017 in Orlando for 500 people.

 

Email is such a funny thing because typed words carry no body language nor voice tone. i always bet on honesty and authenticity. When you write from your heart, it’s hard to fail.

Here’s Judson’s reply this morning…

“Hi there Jeff,

Thanks so much for getting back to me and with such great advice. I was able to become close with a few of the managers and many cast members at Cosmic Rays during my time there and will definitely reach out to them to reconnect. I’m only on my second week here at the Disney Store in Times Square but already off to a great start and looking forward to creating some great relationships with my fellow cast members and the leadership team this summer.

After reading your email, I wanted to look for some books about Disney to get into. I started with “Creating Magic” by Lee Cockerell just last night. Please let me know of any others that I should put on my list!

Thanks again, Jeff!”

-Judson

So i immediately reply back…

“You are on the right track with the right optimism and energy. When you’re finished with Creating Magic, i’ll make another recommendation. And you’re right when you said you got close to some of your leaders and peers. Getting close is different than being cordial, helpful, and respectful to everyone. We should all be focused on being a great resource for everyone, and in the same breath, we also want to find a few people who will tell us the truth so we can grow.
Be well and remain amazed.”

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.

How abundant or rare is this thing we crave?

How abundant or rare is this thing we crave?

Authenticity.

We cherish it in others and long for it in ourselves.

Busy, busy schedules complicate our lives and challenge us to the point of no return. Tempted and discouraged, we no longer focus on being authentic – it takes too long and the process to reach genuine authenticity often comes under attack.

Our motives will be attacked also. And new people enter our life who have no previous experience with us.

Being authentic can appear to others as weakness, or a lack of ambition.

It’s tough being an adult, especially one organizing their life around becoming authentic or maintaining authenticity.

Authenticity. Rare. Hence valuable.
