Jeff Noel is with me again today to continue our discussion and introduce the five new things that I am telling myself every day in 2020. Last time, we laid to rest sayings and questions that I have used daily for years. Entering 2020, I wanted to think differently about the year.

 

Today we are examining my daily exercise and meditations on excellence, gratitude, thankfulness, appreciation, and ownership.

 

By defining what excellence is in the short term, we know how the whole of a project or situation will play out. By allowing ourselves to embrace enough and be thankful, we can experience the fullness of life. Through understanding our follow-through is not dependent on other’s feedback, we can overcome discouragement, which can allow us to appreciate what we encounter, rather than set ourselves up for unmet expectations. Lastly, by embracing ownership, we remove the limit of waiting for someone else to fix something or make a change. Even amid failure, we can move forward and do better. As Jeff likes to say, be amazed and be amazing.

 

What quotes or sayings inspire you? DM me on Instagram or go to jodymaberry.com and reach out.

Jeff Noel returns today to join me as I lay to rest my five daily sayings. Every day, there are five sayings/questions that I meditate on to help me create a successful frame of mind. When we want to do what we have never done, we must think differently than we have. So, in preparation for stepping into a new season, I want to visit these sayings for a final review.

 

Jeff and I discuss the concept of ‘rest being a weapon’ and the advantage it gives you over any adversary. We examine the benefit of asking ‘what does this make possible’ when you suffer loss. We look at the pro’s and con’s of ‘do the one thing’. We also consider what it means to ask yourself ‘what is it for’ as a means of keeping yourself on mission. Lastly, we unpack the benefit of reminding yourself to ‘do your best and forgive yourself’.

 

Words are very powerful. A slight change to a word can affect the whole manner with which we approach something. In the next episode, I will share what 5 new things I will be saying to myself every day.

Phil Gains and Donald Forgione join me today as we discuss what leading in a crisis really looks like. Both Phil and Donald are former State Park Directors and have faced their share of instilling confidence during a crisis.

 

Phil, Donald, and I discuss the core leadership principles that are needed when navigating unprecedented scenarios. We cover the importance of understanding your 3 target markets and how to effectively extend comfort and confidence.

 

We also examine how understanding the necessary principles that help form your long term vision will help you rise as a leader even beyond your immediate sphere. We must also look to those around us, our neighbors, and be a voice of hope.

While Dan Cockerell and I were in Orlando for the annual Magical Vacation Planner Conference, most travel-related businesses began closing in response to Covid-19. 

In the midst of the commotion and confusion, Dan and I along with Lee Cockerell to record an episode about how to deal with a crisis.

In addition to the interview with Lee and Dan, this episode will give some behind the scenes information about dealing with the crisis as it unfolded. 

Here are four steps to keep in mind while dealing with a crisis:

Safety First. Before anything else, the safety of employees, customers, and yourself comes before anything else.

Deal with the Facts. During a crisis people get emotional. People speculate and gossip. You should deal only with the facts when you communicate with people.

Be Empathetic. Everybody is dealing with a crisis in different ways for different reasons. Understand people are worried.

Use the situation to get better. You and your organization can learn plenty from a crisis. Use it as a training opportunity.

During a crisis, your culture is on show for everyone to see. Your actions should match your words. What you say doesn’t build a culture. Culture is built through actions.

This episode we talk about dealing with mi.

Tell me about an opportunity you turned down and then regretted.

For me, I should have left my career as a park ranger two years before I actually did. Staying on longer than I should have made me miss opportunities. Instead of finding a new opportunity, I stayed with the comfort of an uncomfortable situation.

Have you taken an opportunity that turned out to be the wrong decision?

Vincent tells about how he left his job and jumped into his own business. For a while, it seemed like it may have been a better idea to stay in a traditional job.

Don't fear a bad decision. Even a bad decision can lead you to your next opportunity.

Tell me about a time you have paid to cut to the front of the line and get access to someone. 

Vincent gives us several examples of times he has paid to get access to people to learn about podcasting, speaking and more. Access to people has helped him to build relationships and put him in the room with the type of people he wants to be around. 

For me, the best example is Dan Miller. After paying to attend his Coaching with Excellence Program, Dan and I have built a relationship. Plus, I got to know many of the other people who attended the event.

Hear why Vincent decided to launch a podcast that is so different and how he was able to include so much of his personality in each episode. Vincent ignored advice and best practices to put more of his personality into his podcast. 

How do you keep up with so many podcasts? 

Systems. Without good systems and processes, I would not be able to produce as many shows as I do. I also talk about shows I considered doing but did not.

In the last episode of The Jody Maberry Show, Jeff Noel joined me to talk about how to use feedback to achieve excellence. 

On this episode, Jeff Noel returns to talk about what happened next. 

Using feedback, we implemented a good idea. But it didn't work out. 

Not every good idea works out. 

But you still have to keep trying. 

You will never find success without failure.

Jeff Noel and I recorded this episode from the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR. 

During this episode of the Jody Maberry Show, Jeff and I discuss the benefit of recording a podcast live in person. 

We also give a behind the scenes look into recording the first episode of season 5 for If Disney Ran Your Life. 

After recording the first episode, Jeff decides we could do better. So we regrouped and recorded the season-opening episode one more time. 

In the pursuit of excellence, Jeff used feedback to understand he could do better. Feedback is a tool for excellence. 

If you have a clear understanding of where you want to go, one piece of feedback could be the spark you need to make a change that moves you closer to excellence. 

Jeff Noel reminds us, the only way you can succeed is if you are willing to fail. Some feedback can be tough. But you have to willing and open to hearing feedback if you are committed to excellence. 

If you want to follow along and hear the final episodes of If Disney Ran Your Life as Jeff Noel and I create them, you can find the podcast here

A couple time each year, Lee Cockerell and I host a Creating Magic Mastermind event in Orlando. 

Even though I host the event, I learn as much or more than people who attend the event. And I take notes. 

In this episode, I share the 8 new things I learned during the last Creating Magic Mastermind event.

  1. You can do more than you are now.  
  2. When you think different, you act different. 
  3. The Magic happens when experiences and ideas that don't usually come together run into each other. 
  4. Candor moves the conversation. 
  5. "One of the biggest obstacles to thriving is arriving." - Dan Miller
  6. What does that mean vs. Tell me more
  7. If one person is remote all people should be remote
  8. A first impression has to be professional

Lauren Davis returns to the show to ask me three questions. 

If you were making so much money you couldn't spend it all, what causes would you give your money to?

My focus would be to help fund foundations and friends groups that support parks. My time as a park ranger helped me realize what benefit parks are to communities. Most parks are underfunded, understaffed and falling behind. If I had the money to do so, I would fund organizations that work in parks and conversation.

How do you deal with feeling overwhelmed and stressed?

Usually, I have several projects going on at the same time. If it begins to feel overwhelming, I select one project and get everything else out of my way.

My next step is to take a big task and break it down into as many steps as possible. First, I write down the end result I need. Then I list every possible step it would take. Break it down to as many small steps as possible. Once I have all of the steps written down I pick the next right step and I do it.

In 40 years what do you think you will be the most nostalgic about?

Without a doubt, I will look back at the time my kids lived at home and feel it was the time I was on top of the world. We spend more time with our kids when they are adults than when they are kids.

After resisting getting involved with Instagram, I finally began posting photos. 

Instagram became my favorite social media platform, but I was reluctant to use Instagram stories. Finally, I posted an ongoing story when I took a trip to Florida. 

The response was delightful. Every day, I received comments, messages, emojis, and questions. More than anything else I have ever done on social media, Instagram stories was getting people more involved with what I was doing. 

Now I am hooked. And I want to do better. 

When I want to get better, I talk to an expert. When it comes to Instagram, the expert I turn to is Lauren Davis. 

Like me, many people get intimidated or frustrated trying to use social media to add some life to their personal brand. Lauren Davis makes it easier for me, though. She explains it in a way where I feel social media is easy to do because I only have to be myself. 

Lauren's expert social media advice has been featured by Huffington Post, Reader's Digest and NailPro Magazine. As people realize how good she is at what she does, she has been making the rounds as a popular podcast guest. 

Listen in as Lauren helps us understand how to build relationships with Instagram stories. 

You can find me on Instagram at @SugarJMaberry.

Lauren can be found on the web at Lauren Davis Creative and on Instagram at @LaurenDavisCreative.
