Balanced excellence

Business phrases
This is yesterday’s note. Added two others inspired from the first.

Balanced excellence is a phrase originating from a If Disney Ran Your Life podcast episode recording with Jody Maberry.

In the moment yesterday, inhale excellence emerged in an instant.

Having meals in a college dining hall is inspiring and last night’s dinner was no exception.

Stir-fry vegetables and tofu, and a gala apple for dessert.

Perfect.

Impossible Is For Amateurs

What you gain when you can inspire yourself

WTF
WTF. Wow That’s Funny, you have a body but don’t take care of it.

What do you gain when you can inspire yourself?

You get 24/7 inspiration.

You are not dependent on others.

You are free from external sources.

You are in control of your thoughts.

Your thoughts are in control of your actions.

This is a bar set high.

So not exercising regularly is a glaring failure opportunity.

PS. If your life (and your health) was a business, think “If Disney Ran Your Life?”

How Much Is Enough?

Yes, it can be overbearing

Chick-fil-a tables
Real plants or flowers are always on every table. Unusual for a fast-food restaurant. Stopped in to get a cup of water because i forgot a water bottle on a bike ride.

 

Chick-fil-a tables
Context. My cup of water. Live plants. Not necessary, but done anyway. Obsessive? Overbearing for the Owner to scale year-round?

 

Chick-fil-a tables
Context. Yes, every table.

 

The reason you must be 100% committed, focused, and disciplined is because everything we do is a habit.

There are few among us who can do a random, whenever-i-feel-like-it effort and get excellent results.

Simple example…

Floss your teeth every night?

It’s either a yes or a no.

Daily flossing (and i recommend after dinner/before bed) is obviously going to keep our gums cleaner than if we don’t do it daily.

To not floss daily is to not have excellence as a standard.

Yes, it can be overbearing.

When you spend a lifetime at a company like Disney, you understand overbearing is the DNA for greatness.

This is the tip of the iceberg and i don’t feel like going any further right now.

Dear Son

Take a physical walk on your Disney side

Disney Security Cast Member
Disney Security Cast Member, Emily, was actually the “hidden Mickey” artisit.

 

Him: You know, to be honest, diet and exercise never worked for me.

Her: What was the longest amount of time you spent doing those things?

Him: (silent)

Her: Six months?

Him: Maybe, at the most.

Her: You mean you’ve never done either one for more than six months consecutively before you abandoned your efforts?

Appetite for better

Glacier Park history
We could still be riding horses. Glacier National Park’s Lake McDonald Lodge.

 

Appetite for better.

This is something i have learned to harness and thrive on from a lifetime at Disney.

The drive to be the best in the world.

The life of learning to live with never being satisfied, because you’re always wondering, “What if we tried this?”

It’s commercially evident watching the 2016 Rio Olympics which began three days ago.

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.
