How grand a vision is too much vision?

Facebook Mark Zuckerberg
He was in college and had an idea with a couple buddies. Pretty innocent in the early years.

 

How grand a vision is too much vision?

Taking risks is risky.

So is playing it safe.

What’s more impossible than impossible?

Disney Leadership Keynote speaker jeff noel
Yesterday afternoon, day 36 of 365 days.

While exiting Magic Kingdom…an important reminder.

 

What’s more impossible than impossible?

Writing 7 Disney business books in one year is literally impossible.

But writing them all entirely at Walt Disney World is even more impossible, if that’s even possible – you know, to be more impossible than impossible.

So what would make it MUCH more impossible than impossible?

Try writing all 7 books on an iPhone.

Today is day 37 of 365.

All Disney books to be written with these three impossible goals:

  1. All written on an iPhone
  2. All written at Walt Disney World
  3. All told, seven books total (in one year)

Imagine the pushback Walt Disney used to get from some of his crazy ideas.

If your goal isn’t impossible…

Muhammad Ali Center Louisville
First glance at The Muhammad Ali Center. Stumbled upon it during an after dinner walk through Louisville.

Walked for about 90 minutes after dinner.

 

Muhammad Ali Center Louisville
Always curious, so i got a closer look.

Discovered a garden there, with our favorite flowers.

The Muhammad Ali Center was much bigger than it first appeared.

Seemed insignificant, until i paused long enough…

Guessing this was his.

“The greatest” died two days ago (June 3). Little did i know two weeks ago as i snapped all these photos that his life was coming to an end.

What’s impossible in your life?

Disney leadership book storyboard
Had a storyboard epiphany. This storyboard is from 2009-2010.

 

What’s impossible in your life?

Take solace in remembering that something is impossible only until the first person does it.

Can i write a (Disney) book a month for the next six months?

Insight: A book is exponentially easier to write when you use storyboards to organize your thoughts.
