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.

Worn out cliches

Negotiating 101? Take it or leave it! There’s a number i won’t go below. By a magnitude, it’s the biggest contract ever.

Worn out cliches fall on deaf ears because the repetition and simplicity delude us into devaluing brilliant wisdom.

Being willing to walk away from a remarkable deal that gets watered down through negotiation is the ultimate risk.

Never get bored with the basics.

Seek win-win or no deal.

If you feel you are taking a loss, walk away.

Organized for calculated risk taking?

Organized for calculated risk taking?

Pretty sure that’s not only a yes, but a heck yes.

How cool is that?

Very.

Like life-changing cool.

Final 120 Days

No slides for only the second time

No slides for only the second time. Ever.

Spoke with Amir yesterday and it was weird to tell him i don’t have any slides.

Am i crazy?

With 2,000+- speeches delivered since 1999, only once have i not used slides. It’s a Disney practice to be highly visual.

The TEDx Talk next week will be speech number two with no slides.

Risky?

Absolutely.

i love calculated risks.

Breakthroughs are attracted to calculated risks.

Who doesn’t love breakthroughs?

Risk like you mean it

In three months, the Panera sign will be blocked. It will be 10-15 years or more before these palms clear the lettering. Sable palms grow 3″ per year.

Risk like you mean it.

Take risks when the need is low. Failure then will not matter much, if at all.

This is a glorious place to be.

The key to making this a habit is to be organized so you have time to dream. When you are overwhelmed with a busy schedule, you lose this opportunity. In this case, you take risks because you’re desperate and disorganized.
