Disney intentionality and what it looks like in daily personal life

Teaching today's youth
i began transforming myself 12 years ago when he was Pre-K (2004).


i know very few people who:

1. drive the speed limit
2. leave early enough to not have to rush to make it somewhere on time
3. never tailgate
4. have no need to speed up when the light turns yellow

None of those described me until i became a parent (2000) and started thinking about teaching safe driving habits when our child was four (2004). You know, get in a good dozen years or so before they get their learner’s permit.

Disney’s secret to competitive immunity is being way more intentional with the same things others don’t pay much attention to or ignore completely.




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.

Are we organized enough to be able to change our approach mid-stream?

Are we organized enough to be able to change our approach (to anything) mid-stream?

How can we not be?

We are in charge of our life and if we do not have the willingness and flexibility to change, who do we blame?

Dude, you are the CEO of You, Inc.

No excuses.

Being in a position to change lives, changes lives. Sounds dumb at first. But when we are in a position to change the lives of other individuals or organizations, the person who really changes is the teacher.

This too sounds weird. Maybe you’ve felt or experienced something similar.

The past few months, have been really feeling a metamorphosis – in a way, perhaps, that a caterpillar never sees coming.

And I hope you are now, have recently, or will soon, experience this.

Teaching isn’t what I do

I live and die by this… if your audience is bored, you’re boring them…

Teaching isn’t what I do. It’s who I am.

Insight: There’s ridiculous power in conviction.
