This Might Change Your Life

Grounded in reality and pixie dust

Disney most admired company
While i was giving the Creating Magic Keynote, Fortune was releasing their 2016 Most Admired Companies list.


It’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the hard work that makes it Magic. The company i spoke to is focused on stewardship. Began the leadership keynote with a powerful thought by publicly acknowledging that all 350 people in the room are in one of three revolving and unpredictable places in life:

  1. Currently going through a hell no one knows about
  2. Just coming out of a hell no one knew about
  3. About to go into a hell no one will know about


i told them it was because they needed to know i’m grounded in reality, in spite of the overwhelmingly high standards i was about to share.

PS. yesterday, February 19, 2016, Fortune named Disney #5, up one from #6 last year.





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.

Now, What’s At The Very Center Of Your Center?


Yesterday’s exercise was the beginning, but not the final answer. You’re finished when you can drill down to the center of your center. If you said Family, what’s at the center of that? If you said God, what’s at the center of that?

Insight: In either case, Jesus would be an excellent final answer.
