What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Walt Disney World® Resort, Lee Cockerell, as he walks us through his journey of being farm boy and college drop-out to becoming a leader of 40,000 cast members at Disney. Lee goes on to share his strong stance on time-blocking and routines, the tools he uses to stay organized, and why he is adept at technology but continues to use a paper planner.
We also discuss the agreement Lee had in place that consistently kept him up to date on his people, processes, projects, and profits, the meaningful habit he learned during a time management seminar in 1980 that he still uses today, the number one problem business owners unknowingly have, and how his fear of failure sparks his curiosity and inspires him to learn every day.
This was an awesome discussion with Lee I hope you enjoy. Now let’s get to the straight talk!
