When i returned to Disney, i never told another soul

Top Disney Institute Speakers
To teach is to learn twice.


Note: This post is inspired from a deep Father-Son conversation yesterday about the power of goals.

In the decade from 1999 to 2009, i began running and continuously improved my running using the business insights i taught at Disney Institute.

What began simply as a goal to achieve better health (cholesterol) metrics, slowly turned into an opportunity to see what was possible if i was willing to chase something impossible.

And i love, to this day, that i never told anyone at Disney Institute i was representing the United States at the Masters Track & Field World Championships in the M50-54 age group.

Okay, so two weeks before my “vacation”, i told my boss and one other person.

When i returned, i never told anyone else.
