If Disney Ran Your Life you would automatically be expected to set your five life bars (mind, body, spirit, work, home) to the highest level.
Nothing is optional.
Deep in 2020’s Covid-19 outbreak, Lee Cockerell invited me to be his Guest on Creating Magic podcast. We talked for 15 minutes about If Disney Ran Your Life.

This website is about our HOME. This is the fifth of five daily, differently-themed blog posts about: (1) mind, (2) body, (3) spirit, (4) work, (5) home. To return to Mid Life Celebration, the site about MIND, click here.
During yesterday’s speech there was a moment where recognition was highlighted. And in the moment, raced to the back corner of the stage and grabbed from the small backpack the world’s best leadership book, Creating Magic: Ten Common Sense Leadership Strategies From A Life At Disney, by Lee Cockerell.
Told the Fortune 150 audience that the only reason i was standing in front of them now was because of Lee Cockerell.
Not a hard sell. Rather a seed planted for them on their executive leadership journey. And a small attempt to repay Lee for my biggest post Disney career break.
Insight: Was organized enough to have the book handy should an opportunity present itself.
The biggest moments are often the most unexpected. Sound familiar?
If not for a few short emails (over a couple years – a decade ago) telling Lee what a great job his son was doing, and how Dan was growing as a leadership guest speaker, we may never have spoken, let alone have him show up here.
