Work prayers?


Praying for people you work with or worked with.

You may never see them again. You may see them daily.

Pray like you mean it at work.

No one needs to know you’re doing it.

Except you.

Career prayerful

In real life this office doesn’t look this good. In real life, it’s stunningly better. #WFA, work from anywhere.

Career prayerful.

Work with your feet.

Work ’til you bleed.

Work like you mean it.

Do you over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore?

This is a great place to start if you want to replace theory with action.

Dear Prayer

Disney's Not So Scary Halloween decorations
A Family often spends hundreds to enter. We used free passes, earned from a lifetime of Disney Service.


Dear Prayer,

Thank you for the religious and spiritual leaders you inspire to dedicate their lives to helping the rest of humanity have a place of worship.

And thank you for allowing every human to freely choose which path in life to take – one that centers on service, or one that centers on being served.

PS. Thank you for transforming my personal leadership commitment with the blessing of parenthood. What i once believed was an entitlement turned out to be anything but.

PSS. Thank you for providing Walt Disney the epiphany, as he sat on a community park bench, that there ought to be someplace where adults and children could have fun together.

Note: Walt recognized that places for adults didn’t (generally) cater to children and places catering to children were boring for adults.

What’s the 1st thing you do?

What’s the first thing you do when you hear your alarm clock go off?

As I write this, it’s almost 5am.  I’ve been up for an hour, reading, writing, thinking.

Actually, I didn’t think the alarm clock was ever going to go off.  Just lying in bed, wondering, “When is that thing ever going to go off.  Come on. Let’s go.  Bring it (the day) on!”

Those who know me know I’m completely serious.  Those who don’t – “crazy man”!

Part of the challenge is the thing we’re waiting on is called an “ALARM” clock.  Yikes.

What if we called it an “OPPORTUNITY” clock.  Wow!

Everyday is an opportunity to do something great.  Everyday is a gift.  To be able to get out of bed.  To be alive.  To have the privilege to serve and help others.

Have you noticed the tone, the language, of today’s post?

There a few key words and phrases that set the tone.  Agree?

The same is true in business.  That’s one of the most powerful secrets in business.  Use words to nuture and grow a great culture.

I’ll explain more in another jungle jeff post.  Right now, it’s off to the Orange County Convention Center for a GREAT day.

Make your day GREAT!  Because if you don’t, who will?

Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂

What does EPCOT stand for?

What does EPCOT stand for?

Every Person Comes Out Tired!


Just kidding.  You can take the boy out of the Jungle Cruise, but you can’t take the Jungle Cruise out of the boy.

EPCOT stands for Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow.

That’s what Walt Disney called Walt Disney World, before it was officially named Walt Disney World.  The entire 43-square mile piece of alligator, snake and mosquito infested swampland he called EPCOT.

He said it would never be completed.  He added, “The sketches and plans you see here are simply a starting point. Our first overall thinking.”  As he continued, “Our plans may change time and time again.”  He gave us permission to take his crazy, “impossible” vision and find the best way to get to our destination – “that EPCOT will always be a showcase for American ingenuity.”

And so it is with me.  And with you too.  Who wouldn’t want to always be in a state of becoming.  Always changing and growing -serving more people in more ways.  Then those people go out and do the same.  We know this as “the ripple effect”.

Who’s helping you?   Who’s holding you accountable?

At last week’s National Speakers Association Winter Conference, prior to the opening Keynote speech from Roxanne Emmerich ( ), author of  “Thank God It’s Monday:  Kicking Butt and Taking Names to Grow Your Business”, we were asked to find one or two accountability partners.  It was great to establish this upfront.

Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂
