Our Choices Make Us

Hidden message was unintentionally created

Awoke at 3:30 AM with a Keynote Speaking business idea. Stayed up after writing it down. Too excited to go back to sleep.

At 4:00 AM i emailed an executive client with the following message, along with the photo in this post…

Did you catch the hidden msg?

Clarity of purpose ranks (ties) with being born, and becoming a dad.

The integrity of this profound belief is innocently illustrated in a random text.

Vision/purpose is THE most important of 19 blueprints.

How you amplify this as CEO is how well it will be heard (and received) in the far corners of your organization’s culture.

Be amazed and be amazing. There is no try, only do.

Final 120 Days

Two writers, speakers, podcasters, and hikers

Jody Maberry podcaster in Kuwait
Jody Maberry writing early yesterday morning as we awaited Room Service breakfast and prepared for a 9:45AM hotel departure.

Two writers, speakers, podcasters, and hikers we are. Jody and me.

Both of us a long way from home.

Both of us convinced the only thing different with this culture and ours is the geography.

The prevailing American image of the Middle East is not favorable. Once you spend a few days and mix in with the people, you realize it’s inaccurate.

Habits define you

habits
Habits are either by design or by default.

 

 

Ever catch yourself examining other people’s behaviors and instantly liking or disliking certain attributes?

Do you believe that what we like and dislike is a reflection of our own daily behaviors?

Observing others is a great window into how we are perceived by others.

This is scary for the simple reason that the things we dislike in others – that’s what we are unknowingly projecting as well.

This is exciting because we have many positive blind spots. We become aware of the goodness we carry and project.

Our temptation is to downplay both.

“I’m not that annoying.”

“I’m not that wonderful.”

Disney Customer Service book

Pssst, the boss is spending the night

Walt Disney's apartment lamp at night
Every night since December 15, 1966.

 

Walt Disney's apartment lamp at night
The light was Guest Relations way of telling the entire Cast that Walt was spending the night.

 

Pssst, the boss is spending the night.

The boss spends every night with you.

And every day.

The boss is there for your every breath, every move, every thought.

You get this, right?

Operationalize your personal culture with traditions

Orlando Disney Keynote Speakers
April 2011.

 

Operationalize your personal culture with traditions.

This is a concept i learned at Disney.

You can be intentional about designing your organizational culture.

If you’re not intentional then your culture is heavily influenced by random and unintentional things, people, and events.

In 1999 we volunteered to deliver “Food For Families” on Thanksgiving morning. One month later we did it again on Christmas morning.

As we entered the new millennium, we discovered that we could volunteer again on Easter morning.

So here we are, Easter morning 2018, about to head out to do what we always do on Easter morning.
