Michael Vance, creative director of Disney World in Orlando was asked: “Isn’t it a shame that Walt Disney didn’t live to see this?” “He did see it,” Vance said, “and that is precisely why we are here today!” Before every great undertaking, someone has a vision.  The army commander, a strategy.  The football coach, a game plan.  The artist, a picture in the  mind’s eye. In business, too many are following schedules, attending meetings, anxiously responding to cell phones, and other urgencies.  They are dominated by routine, often trivial activities.  Something’s missing.

Sometimes I think if I hear one more person say, “I haven’t had time to . . . ,” I’ll just scream. That’s absurd.  They have the time.  You have the time.  I have the time.  Everybody has the time.  We have the same amount of time allotted to Thomas Jefferson, Michaelangelo, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, and Ben Franklin. It isn’t about your time; it’s about your priorities. It’s about how you choose to use your time.  You can use your time doing things perfectly, and it could be the worst possible use of your time, because those things may not need doing...

Effectiveness Can Be Learned We often think leaders and executives possess high intelligence, extreme creativity and stunning imagination, but these qualities are not in short supply.  Nor are they the most important qualities of executives. Whether executives work in government, business, hospitals, churches, universities or the military, they’re expected to get things done, and they’re expected to get the right things done. Effectiveness is in short supply in most organizations these days.  Why is that? I don’t know all the reasons, but I know one of the reasons.  If you think about it, you’ll...

Thinking Like A Genius The natural function of the brain is to learn, to explore, and to expand its own mental powers.  We have in our head a vast, substantially-dormant super bio-computer, the human mind, given to us free at birth.
