Sweep like you mean it

Late afternoon Chick-Fil-A drive-thru lane…fresh flowers in the traffic cone.

Used a couple flip charts as visuals for the audience.

Favorite quote from MLK yesterday.

Note: i did not scan social media. This one appeared randomly from a former Disney Institute colleague an hour ago, on LinkedIn…

And when you discover what you will be in your life, set out to do it as if God Almighty called you at this particular moment in history to do it.

Don’t just set out to do a good job. Set out to do such a good job that the living, the dead or the unborn couldn’t do it any better.

If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music, sweep streets like Leontyne Price sings before the Metropolitan Opera.

Sweep streets like Shakespeare wrote poetry. Sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.

If you can’t be a pine at the top of the hill, be a shrub in the valley. Be the best little shrub on the side of the hill. Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail.

Be the best of whatever you are.

The beauty of being spiritual

Disney innovation speaker
Walt Disney said, “I was all alone back then. I didn’t even have a mouse.” He was referring to the time (1928) Oswald the Lucky Rabbit was no longer his.

There is a time in the life of every problem when it is big enough to see, yet small enough to solve. – Mike Leavitt

 

The beauty of being spiritual is that you always have someone (or some thing) to talk to.

You are never alone.

Find advice, guidance, and solutions early.

That’s most of life’s opportunity – nipping “problems” in the bud.

Training is essential, reinforcement even more so
