We all lift up others because others have lifted us up first.

We’ve become organized because organized people ahead of us have demonstrated the merits of an organized life.

Be amazed and be amazing.

He's Just Lucky

Sir, i’m sorry but you’re going to have to leave

Disney Keynote Speaker
Gambled that i’d be the only one on the back wall if i simply opened the door and walked in. i was correct.

Michael Jr initiated the photo opportunity. i simply piggy-backed on his first move.

We reversed the roles.

 

Disney Keynote Speaker
This young man witnessed the interaction with Michael Jr becasue he was there to drive me to the airport – i carved out time to mentor this college sophomore who wants to eventually work for Disney. We talked on the drive and at the airport Starbucks.

Three quick photos. Different angles. Looking at things differently helps you to .think .differently

 

My peripheral vision detected a person approaching me as a stood against the back wall watching Michael Jr speak..

Sir, i’m sorry but you’re going to have to leave.

Nope.

She didn’t say that.

She asked if i’d like to join her and her group.

Saw the last 30 minutes guilt free.

As i waited in the lobby for a ride to the airport, Michael Jr. and i had a chance to talk just before he drove to his next gig in Chicago.

PS. During Michael Jr’s speech, i got a little teary-eyed trying to comprehend Melissa’s generosity. Her invitation to stay blew my mind.

Here’s the response from today’s jungle jeff post

Disney Keynote Speaker request
Most communication i receive from unknown people is for advice. Sprinkled in are requests for keynote speaking, like this one yesterday. Feb 2017 in Orlando for 500 people.

 

Email is such a funny thing because typed words carry no body language nor voice tone. i always bet on honesty and authenticity. When you write from your heart, it’s hard to fail.

Here’s Judson’s reply this morning…

“Hi there Jeff,

Thanks so much for getting back to me and with such great advice. I was able to become close with a few of the managers and many cast members at Cosmic Rays during my time there and will definitely reach out to them to reconnect. I’m only on my second week here at the Disney Store in Times Square but already off to a great start and looking forward to creating some great relationships with my fellow cast members and the leadership team this summer.

After reading your email, I wanted to look for some books about Disney to get into. I started with “Creating Magic” by Lee Cockerell just last night. Please let me know of any others that I should put on my list!

Thanks again, Jeff!”

-Judson

So i immediately reply back…

“You are on the right track with the right optimism and energy. When you’re finished with Creating Magic, i’ll make another recommendation. And you’re right when you said you got close to some of your leaders and peers. Getting close is different than being cordial, helpful, and respectful to everyone. We should all be focused on being a great resource for everyone, and in the same breath, we also want to find a few people who will tell us the truth so we can grow.
Be well and remain amazed.”

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.
