Unselfish desire is remarkably rare and inspiring

Definition of Ambition
Prepared notes where written specifically for our meeting.


In advance of the mentoring meeting, Laura asked for some questions, from me, in advance.

  • Q. What drives you?
  • Q. What do you hope to accomplish from your ambition?
  • Q. What are one to three things you’d change at Disney to make it better?

At face value, ambition has a selfish connotation.

In the photo above taken from Laura’s journal, the glaring omission is the word contribution. The earnest desire to contribute to a higher, unselfish purpose.

Laura exudes this unselfish desire.

It’s inspiring.

Wondering if Lee Cockerell sees that in me.

Never thought about it before. But i am now.
