Somewhere in the 22nd (2007-ish) year in my 30-year Disney career i made a life-altering decision:

“i am no longer going to work hard for a Disney promotion.”

Instead, i worked hard to be the very best at my current position as a professional speaker. A position i loved, felt privileged to have, and found joy every day doing it.

Insight: Letting go of a life-long habit, but redirecting it to create a different (yet similar) habit, changed my life.




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.

Did you say something?

Yes. I said something.

Weren’t you paying attention?
