More than meets the Podcast eye

No season listed. No episode numbers.
Closeup for easier reading.
Better, but still no episode number.

More than meets the Podcast eye.

Launched yesterday at 1:00 AM with three episodes, while removing the two existing episodes (#22 and Fantasyland placeholder).

Some things that happened differently than expected:

  • “Season 3” is not listed
  • Episodes are not numbered
  • It took nearly 8 hours for me to see the new podcasts on my devices

This caused concern because:

  • There’s an important backstory that official Season starts at Season 3 (Seasons 1 & 2 will resurface later, as Seasons 1 & 2)
  • Episode numbers are critical because each episode contains instructions that build

Based on new knowledge, what we did after the fact:

  • Removed Season 3 episodes 2 & 3 so only the Kuwait episode 1 could be listened to (a Disney principle of guiding the Guest experience)
  • Brainstormed backup plan if Apple podcast platform doesn’t list Season or episode, using show notes differently than normal.

Learned that clear expectations, subject matter experts, and clients need to be excellently synched or everyone can feel way less than awesome.

Plan for it to take longer

Flashback yesterday from 2007. Three out of 4 quarters on the charts. Not bad. The only team member to do so. Thank you insatiable desire to improve.

There’s a Donald Rumsfeld quote that’s referenced a lot in project management:
There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns–the ones we don’t know we don’t know.

When estimating any task or project, you have to take all of these things into account. There are things you know will happen, things you know could happen, and things you never once considered might happen.

Use a factor of 1/4 the time as well as four times the time.

Think something will take four weeks?

Plan on it taking a multiple of four, so plan on 16 weeks.

Also be prepared using a multiple of .25, so plan on it possibly taking only one week.

One week to 16 weeks.

Be better at avoiding the planning fallacy.

Three outta four

Omar Nour
Omar Nour, 2019 TEDxAUK speaker one. Here, he’s having fun with Jack during our group AV check.

Three outta four podcasts we planned got recorded at Walt Disney World yesterday.

We finished the last three episodes of Season 4.

Didn’t make it to Fort Wilderness to do the first episode of season 5.

Maybe it was the wisdom of the Universe telling us to pause before beginning a brand new season with a brand new focus.

i trust what the Universe has to say but am not always present to listen.

Best decade ever

Bicycling in Florida requires frequent water breaks. At 12:00 PM vehicles backed up at least a mile to get in.

Additional copy for the Meetup Group’s members to make an attendance decision for the January 16 meeting.

Most people are overwhelmed, overworked, and stressed out.

If Disney ran your life, you’d think differently and do things differently. And, perhaps, better. Join 30-year Disney veteran Jeff Noel as he challenges you to believe that balance is not a myth and unpacks the remarkable power you hold to influence your personal brand – with others, and especially, with yourself.
