Disney Institute headquarters in Celebration, Florida

Met a Disney and Disney Institute colleague at Panera across the street from our former office building. DI is still there and doing well without us. Photo: from my parking space at Panera.

Disney Institute (DI) headquarters in Celebration, Florida.

Son, you remember being there a couple times as a child, when i needed to pick something up (or drop off something) on the weekend.

i was one of the first to work remotely from home.

DI does just fine without Bob and me.

We are doing exceptionally well since leaving DI.

Son, life has a funny way of living up to the theory that risk and reward are decently proportional.

No shortage of expensive theory

Disney Institute speakers
Imagine spending only one day to find solutions to all your personal and business challenges. Impossible, right?

 

Do you see the time you use for organizing your systems and processes at home as an expense to be managed or as a non-negotiable investment?

Organized for firsts?

Going to the sun road open 2016
The 50-mile long Going-To-The-Sun Road opened two days ago, June 17, 2016. Family visit in 40 days.

 

 

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

 

It spontaneously came out of my mouth one day while answering a Disney Institute class participant’s question that went something like this:

“But Jeff, you don’t understand, our business is way different from Disney. What would you recommend we do to create our own industry specific Magic?”

I repeat:

 

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

 

One way (of the million ways) is to have fun with it. i have a small (but growing) list of firsts i keep track of:

Firsts:

  • First freeze of the season (a rare occasion, one worth noting, often damaging sub-tropical plants)
  • First morning hearing a Robin singing  (our unofficial start of Winter)
  • First morning the temperature reaches at least 70 degrees (our unofficial start of Spring)
  • First morning the temperature dips below 70 degrees (our unofficial start of Fall)
  • First day i see the caladiums break through the soil (another unofficial start to Spring)
  • And two days ago, a new “first” was added – The first day Going-To-The-Sun Road opens (someday be there when it happens)

 

Find a millions ways is not a theory.

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.
