2016 Disney Dream Cruise Day 5 fond farewell.

Thanksgiving at Sea (at Disney) was a first. It was also a last minute idea.

Firsts are cool.

Last minute generally is not a recommended strategy, but in this case it worked well.

On this Thanksgiving day (every day actually) may you give thanks for your crazy dreams, your perseverance, and even give thanks for your doubt.

Yes, be thankful for your doubt.

Doubt is the lion’s share of the price we pay for anything worthwhile.

Happy Thanksgiving from somewhere on the Caribbean Sea. Technically i’m on Deck 12 underneath the AquaDuck.

Three years ago today Mid Life Celebration was released in paperback and Kindle versions.

Thankful for the 30 years it took to write the first sentence.

Thankful for the two years it took to write my first book.

Thankful for the additional two years of doubt that led to finally having the courage to commit to publishing it.

Without paralyzing doubt, there is no victory.

From first sentence to publishing took four years. Yes, i sat on it for two more years after it was written before moving forward.

2016 Disney Dream Cruise Day 3 at Castaway Cay.

Good morning Castaway Cay. We watched the sun rise from the top deck again. And then stayed for the approach to our private Disney island, Castaway Cay.

The attention to detail on the Disney Dream is astonishing. No doubt we’ll experience the same on the island.

Can’t wait.

Waking up aboard the the Disney Dream and watching the sunrise with Cheryl from the top deck was a Take 5 moment, in Disney-speak.

Take 5’s are spontaneous, surprising, and delightful.

Magic Moments are planned events that happen in the same way and at the same time of day. Every department creates their own signature ways. These are shared internally to help promote additional idea generation.

It never ends because we have a saying , “The road to excellence has no finish line.”

2016 Disney Dream Cruise Day 1 at Port Canaveral

Driving to our 2016 Disney Dream Cruise Day 1 at Port Canaveral in a few hours.

Meanwhile, was reflecting on an executive conversation last week so i’m changing some of the words in the photo above:

You can’t build a great company culture without a solid foundation. Likewise, before we begin to build more advanced layers of culture, you first need to establish proper cultural DNA and a base level of organizational structure. With a comprehensive, holistic approach, my corporate culture architecture will ensure you avoid “good and very good”, and make steady progress towards excellent, at your pace, and begin your path to sustainable competitive immunity.

Insight:  i find inspiration and karma to be pervasive. My goal of staying hydrated requires frequent trips to the bathroom. From the mundane task of standing at a urinal, a moment of genius in the photo above.
