Happy 28th HQ anniversary

Yep.

Bought our lot in 1990, moved into our present home on January 25, 1992. Happy 28th.

Revisiting yesterday’s leadership train of thought about my top values.

Here’s a list i began teaching our son in 2004-ish. This list began in 2002 with one value, honesty. Numbers two, three, and four were added when sleepovers became a thing in 2005-ish. Initiative added a couple years later. Fun added somewhere 2016-ish.

  1. Honesty
  2. Behave admirably
  3. Personal responsibility
  4. Self-control
  5. Initiative
  6. Fun
  7. (Bonus) Contribution (June 2019)

The high-priced story came free with rock solid values

Orlando based Disney Keynote Speakers
From the front row.

 

A few days ago i had a three hour phone call from a long-time (former) Disney colleague. The most impactful moment was his reaction to me sharing that i was willing to walk away from a large contract.

What i’m saying is, he was incredibly inspired by this.

Turns out, there are still people left in the world who will make decisions using their values first and their pocket book second.

PS. i knew if i walked away, i would miss the revenue, but the purchase of a powerful story would have been priceless.

Turns outs, i got the story for free.

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.

One more time, because repetition is the mother of all learning

Airport luggage claim greeting in Orlando
The same but different… took a NYC cab, sans adults, and paid for it himself

 

One more time – in priority order – because repetition is the mother of all learning:

honesty • behave admirably • self control • personal responsibility

Temptations never cease.

Growth should never stop.
