We're spending two days at Walt Disney World for Kathy's Nursing Educator's Conference. While she is here learning, I'm doing some learning as well ... from Disney!
Several years ago we brought our kids here when they were young. All I remember is that it cost a lot!
To be honest, these days I'm less interested in the "rides" and the "attractions" that folks pay hundreds of dollars to experience - I'm more intrigued by the operational side of this place! I'm amazed at the planning that went into the development of Walt Disney World! The waterways connect with the hotels that connect with the attractions. The roadways and the infrastructure all work very well - because they were well planned!
This is a leadership lesson for me! The way to "get ahead" is to "think ahead!" It takes effort to make a plan work - but before it can work well, it takes some good thinking and planning!
So ... I'm resolved in this new year to "think ahead" more - so that I can "get ahead" more!
