If Disney ran your home

Love that Mickey is doing the signature thumbs up pose.


If Disney ran your home, we’d ask four simple questions:

  1. What is your most important strategy for generating creative ideas?
  2. What are your four core filters for vetting every idea?
  3. How scalable are your structural systems for implementing ideas?
  4. What are your leaders committed to in order to continuously improve your company?

There are many more questions but these are the baseline starting points.




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.

This website is about our home health. To leave this site to read today’s post on my mental attitude website, click here.

Be really tough on the person in the mirror, because they are so coachable, which is awesome


How coachable do you consider yourself to be?

Are you satisfied with where you are in life right now?

Are there things you could be doing to make yourself a better example?

Are there things you could stop doing to avoid becoming a warning?

Know what it is?

A thankful heart.
