I want to be the guy that writes the messages on Taco Bell Hot Sauce Packets.
And the messages inside Dove Promises.
I want the job that Katherine Hepburn had in Desk Set. (though my memory is nowhere near as good as hers.
My pipe dream would be to be a concept designer for Imagineering.
I want to get paid to sit in front of a blank piece of paper and just brainstorm.
I’d like to write a bestselling novel and make a few million, and then retire to a beach and live out the rest of my days trying to write another.
I’d like to be a pop culture analyst and tell companies “I’m sorry – your product just isn’t cool” and have companies pay me to think up new names for cars.
Anyone hiring for any of those positions?
Lately, I’ve been thinking about career and life stuff, and thinking about passion. What I do, I’m not really passionate about. I want to find something that I feel so strongly for and would fight for and would be willing to suffer for. BUt I don’t have that. I don’t know that I’ve ever had that.
Really, Disney has been a small passion. But where I’m at within the company now, I’m not exposed to the things about Disney that I am passionate about.
So after some introspection, I think I’ve identified some things that will help me find a passion and start me on the path of goal-setting:
1. I want to do something that is personally edifying.
2. I want to do something that is edifying to others, and possibly that helps others who need help.
3. I want to create beauty.
I know it’s vague, and can lead in many directions, but it’s a start, right?
Disney is one of those companies that has many many opportunities, so part of this process will also be as I explore those things, how I may be able to fulfill it and still stay with Disney. But I’m also open to other opportunities.
