Unpacking from being gone for nine days has my office looking disorganized by my standards, yet decently organized by many others.

The secret sauce really is simply over-focusing on the same things others under-focus on or ignore. This is Disney’s secret sauce, and it’s been mine as well for the past eight years.

You are the custodian of your life…
