Thankful for patience

Jungle cruise from Disneyland
For some reason, this photo is on my desktop and works almost every time despite the technical issues.

Thankful for patience.

Without patience, man, i’d be a wreck.

For a week now (since the web hosting migration) i’ve been unable to use the WordPress photo uploader. i’ve spent far too many hours trying to solve it. Yesterday i made a small inroad, but it’s not working consistently.

As a compromise, i’ve been using the media library of previously used photos. While not what i want, i’ll take it until we (patiently) solve this issue.

Dear Boomers

No one cares abut your challenges, if you don’t

Disney speakers jeff
Inform and inspire. Every day. All day.

 

No one cares about your challenges if you don’t.

Caring means tenacious effort to overcome the challenge.

Like a full-time job.

Without results, how can we prove we mean it?

A higher power, whatever that means to you, is like Dennys – always open.

You must inform and inspire yourself to why you exist.

Every day.

All day.

Every speech has to count

Colorado landscape from a plane
Stunning opportunity on so many levels on a trip that was a first world nightmare.

 

Colorado landscape from a plane
Never let the marathon day – filled with bumps – get to me.

 

Colorado landscape from a plane
Wow.

 

Colorado landscape from a plane
Imagining what carved it and how long it took, and if this is only the most recent (100-million years) look.

Trusting the pilots…we were close to mountain tops.

Really close.

Reflecting back to just two days ago, i really rallied for the Disney Customer Service Keynote speech.

How do i know?

Face-to-face client (CEO) and audience (Owners) feedback.

Like a heart surgeon, every operation (speech) has to count.

If the phone doesn’t ring, look in the mirror

Medical pediatric doctor office visit app
Yesterday in Allergist’s waiting room, a TV piece on a new app letting you visit with a board certified pediatrician via smartphone.

 

Ever pray when you wonder why you don’t hear from family and close friends for a long time.

Do you pray that they understand when they are feeling the same way, that they, and you, realize that someone has to go first.

In the absence of deciding who’s responsible for initiating calls, let’s assume neither has enough interest or time to be the leader.

But almost everyone has time to be the follower.

Vulnerability as a leader

jeff noel Disney management expert
Book title or just a great reminder? “From Theory to Magic”.

 

One hour and fifty minute phone call. Rough at the beginning but worth every minute to get to the ending.

We are both better off for staying the course, speaking openly, and never loosing sight of the blessings beneath all the surface struggle that will become something we will joke about in years to come.

Entrepreneurs should be testing “theory” daily.

All theory looks good on paper. Until you are running your own business, you’ll never realize how theory and reality are often polar opposites.
