Disney Creativity & Innovation book

When and when not

Lots of photos of Mickey Mouse on the Internet. Lots of photos of Walt Disney too. Same with Bob Iger.

Why companies fail to innovate: tradition. It generates friction.

Bob Iger (excerpt)

Bob’s quote is in response to his big gamble with Disney +

i consistently and continuously gamble. For example…

Going paperless.

Abandoning the computer mouse.

Wearing merino wool clothing – clothing worn for weeks before needing a wash.

Giving up keynote speech slides.

Using a speaker agent – agents add 25% to your fees.

Retiring from Disney to start my business.

Traveling without a laptop – only using a computer that fits in a pocket (iPhone).

An endless list of doing uncomfortable and or risky things.

Tradition is both timely and timeless.

There are things that should change (timely) and things that shouldn’t change (timeless).

The tactics (above) were changed.

The strategy (my unspoken value) to continuously improve will never change.

The random list of changes listed here are all endeavoring to allow me to become more organized – managing time and effort to simplify and excel at my priorities.

Make It Simple

Analogy

TEDxAUK speakers 2019
Omar Nour over my head, and other integral volunteers for TEDx AUK, April 2019.

Analogy…

Knowing you should work out, knowing where the gym is and how much a membership costs, etc, etc…is not the same as being vibrantly healthy, because vibrancy requires that you actually breathe life into your health routine all day, everyday.

So in moving from physical vibrancy to organizational vibrancy, knowing that being decently organized makes a person’s life better…is not the same as putting structure and processes in place, continuously improving, and using that to keep up with the paperwork of life.

He's Just Nutty

Facebook is the new cigarettes

Up at 8,200′ i can think in ways i never can when in the midst of the hustle and bustle.

Know someone who smokes?

How many times a day do they smoke a cigarette?

How long does each cigarette take to smoke?

How much does a smoker’s health improve after each cigarette?

Now think about how many times someone you know checks Facebook.

How many times?

How long does each look at their status updates take?

Do you see where this post is going?

The reason i quit personal Facebook is the same reason i quit smoking – it wasn’t good for me.

Final 120 Days

Study your habits and rituals

Walking a well-trained dog on a beach is wonderful. i did this 14 times minimum. How many did you get to do?

Study your habits and rituals.

Be generously honest with yourself.

Forgive any shortcomings or misfires.

Act creatively and courageously to try solutions. Use this mantra after every try:

Launch, learn, revise.

Repeat.

Have fun as you pursue – and make slow and steady progress – personal vibrancy.

Final 120 Days

Never get bored with the basics

Final photo as it was still yesterday (close to midnight) in Orlando. This was approximately sunrise in Western Europe.

Never get bored with the basics for personal organization.

Especially true when traveling internationally to places you’ve never been.
