Two Disney “Values” stories. Eight practical questions. And thought-provoking conversation about being intentional and over-focusing.
.think .differently to create balance and personal vibrancy.
What are your goals for Spirit?
Spirit is defined as the feeling, emotional part of your life.
If you’ve never been asked, you’ve never answered. Now is the extraordinary opportunity of your lifetime to ponder, think, Decide, and declare.
How do you rate your life's peace and contentment? Satisfied or not with your rating?
Can you, and are you excited to, raise your bar on everything?
Jeff shares two Disney stories that prelude this season's content as being so valuable to you, it is immeasurable.
This is the fifth of five previously unreleased Glacier National Park episodes from Summer 2019. We discuss over-focusing on Life’s small details that most under-focus on or ignore, next to Swift Current Glacier.
Of note: We recorded this episode (at 7,000’) the same day (Aug 29, 2019) Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge opened at Walt Disney World.
This is the fourth of five previously unreleased Glacier National Park episodes from Summer 2019. When in front of an expert with only one question you can ask, are you present enough to choose a question that counts, for your future development?
Of note: jeff picked one strategic question for the 30-year Grizzly Bear biologist - the answer saved jeff's life 75 minutes later.
This is the third of five previously unreleased Glacier National Park episodes from Summer 2019. We discuss joyful intensity, plus lofty and sometimes crazy ideas next to the Continental divide.
Of note: recorded while Jody sits next to an outhouse with one of the world’s best “outhouse views” at 8,200’, while jeff sits next to Jody and feet away from a 3,000’ cliff.
This is the second of five previously unreleased Glacier National Park episodes from summer 2019. We discuss lofty and sometimes crazy ideas next to the Continental divide.
All If Disney Ran Your Life episodes are recorded months before publishing. This episode and last episode are the only exceptions.
An intentional pause between Seasons 5 & 6. We reflect on end of Summer, Covid-19, and back-to-school. RFA = Record From Anywhere, using an iPhone and Air Pods.
Balance is not a myth. Personal vibrancy is possible by applying the same time-tested business insights that earn Disney organizational vibrancy. Thirty year Disney veteran jeff noel shares how to apply Disney business insights to personal life.
The DNA of If Disney Ran Your Life includes 3 key elements: (1) Taking risks. (2) Thinking Differently. (3) Envisioning a future not only better than now, but much better.
Over time, Season...
Jody and jeff discuss how they've changed since Season 5, episode one - which is the same 72-hour challenge issued to listeners on the last episode (5.9).
This recording is the backstage, behind-the-scenes conversation they normally have, but with one exception, they hit the record button so you could listen in.
Jody and jeff review the thought-provoking questions and nine 72-hour challenges from Season 5 (Body).
Another excellent example of them only preaching what they practice.
If Disney Ran Your Life, motivation would consistently be expected at the highest level. Everyday Disney performs as if today is the most important day ever.
Picture yourself on those days when you are at your most motivated. What do those days look and feel like? What are the contributing factors? How can you put consistent structure and processes in place to vibrantly scale motivation all day, everyday.
Ever have your boss call you into the office with a unique career opportunity you could never have imagined? And not only that, but give you carte blanche instead of a direct order?
Jeff reveals an incredible opportunity his leader offered late in Jeff's 30-year Disney career. With the option to work anywhere at Walt Disney World for a few months, why did Jeff pick Theme Park Custodial? His decision is the essence of this episo...
In the same way that flexible workers, flexible processes, and flexible service-delivery enhances organizational vibrancy, flexibility benefits you and the busy, stress-filled life you lead.
When you under-focus on or ignore what got you here, you realize that flexibility is key to sustaining and improving your ability to continue to live vibrantly with fewer injuries and greater confidence.
Who's the healthiest person you know? In a perfect world, you should be the healthiest person you know. Sleep, rest, and moderation all contribute to our vibrancy.
If Disney Ran Your Life, you would be expected to honor standard operating guidelines for bedtime because your daily start time is set and expected. You are expected to be intentional where you used to be less intentional.
At Disney, nothing is optional. Everything matters. Good and very good aren't good enough. Excellence is the only standard.
If Disney Ran Your Life, you would think differently about nutrition because nutrition is the fuel that powers physical vibrancy. At Disney, there are many similarities to the fuel we (Disney) use to power our organizational vibrancy.
Once again, jeff felt the first take on this Season 5, Episode 3 was not his best, he and Jody recorded a second take. Same topic, strength, different version. What's different here is the time and detail added for the stories.
It requires strength to change your mind. And ultimately, the first take was better overall than this one, but we can't know that until we commit to recording take 2.
How much effort is too much? We traveled to Disneyland a week after being in Oregon at the 2020 USA Track & Field Olympic Trials stadium. Why? Excellence has Magical karma and we thrive on it.
We discuss the 1st of 7 physical vibrancy blueprints, Cardio - also known as stamina and endurance; it's impact on our work and personal vibrancy is classic common sense, yet often uncommon.
Ever waffle on the quality of your work? After traveling to University of Oregon to record the Season 5 opener, jeff wasn't happy with his 1st recording effort.
This is the 2nd take, done hours later from the hilltop cemetery next to Hayward Field. After listening to both Intro recordings, jeff chose the original for Season 5 launch. This one is a bonus that almost got deleted.
Who's the healthiest person you know? Is your body the temple that houses everything keeping you alive? The healthiest person you know should be you. It's your temple.
Introduction to the 7 blueprints for physical vibrancy. You know diet and exercise, but there are 5 more neglected keys. Knowing these other 5 gives you a competitive advantage over your old habits.
