If Disney Ran Your Life name origin

After 22 practice episodes over Season 1 and Season 2, we officially launched If Disney Ran Your Life from up on the observation deck, 7,000 miles from home.

If Disney Ran Your Life name origin.

It was a truly desperate effort to reach outsiders – global Disney Institute business professionals – because nothing i tried seemed to work for the masses. No one else on the Disney Institute team had solved for this and, weirdly, i was traveling a lonely path to figure this out.

A flash of insane creativity and risk-taking.

What if i applied world-class, time-tested Disney business principles to my personal life?

The biggest application came to personal health. The year (1999) i joined Disney Institute, a wake-up call in the form of a danger-zone cholesterol report rattled me to the core.

Long story longer, i began running 100 meters (the distance between neighborhood mailboxes) daily for a week. Second week, 200 meters daily. Third week 300 meters.

Ten years later, i represented the United States at the 2009 Masters Track & Field World Championships in Finland in the 50-54 age group at 400 meters.

While the application was a world class change to my personal life, never felt comfortable sharing the story in the Disney Institute classroom or on stage at a speech.

As the years went by, the name – If Disney Ran Your Life – became a thing that i knew had potential, partially inspired by Fred Lee’s book, If Disney Ran Your Hospital: 9.5 things you’d do differently.

What does it all mean?

Not sure exactly.

I have pretty decent intuition.  I can see farther out than many can.

What does all of that mean?

Again, not sure really.

But I do know one thing for sure.

I believe that it’s possible for one individual to work hard, follow some common sense guidelines, and reach one million website hits in the course of one year.

A million in a year?

Yep?

How do I know?

Because I’m well on my way to doing it.

There are probably two camps of readers at this moment:

  1. jeff noel sure is egotistical.  What a jerk!  He’s must think he’s special.
  2. jeff noel sure is inspiring.  He’s a nobody, but he’s willing to work very hard to do the impossible.

I hope most of you subscribe to number two.  🙂

Bottomline:  I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I’m not.

We’re all gonna die sometime.  This is the great equalizer and common denominator among all humans.

What is not common is, as Mother Theresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great love”.

That’s all I’m trying to do?

What are you trying to do?

Hope it’s great.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
