Care in the details
There are always things that may seem insignificant, but in reality, they serve to make the job a complete experience. Did you know that in Disney the golden painting of the carousel is 23 karat gold leaf? Visitors to the park should not notice it, and it should be easy to simply paint it with gold paint because “who will notice?”.
However, thanks to this the carousel is kept careful and in color. The details help to maintain an order and neglect of them can grow and make your remedy more complicated.
Get on the client’s feet
Always try to see things from the other point of view. Sit down and study your business or product and think: “If I am a customer, what questions does this generate for me? What would you expect this product to solve me?”
Each employee is part of a total
A business is like a typewriter: if one of the keyboards stops working, the whole machine becomes useless because every letter or button is necessary.
Thus, each employee plays a fundamental part in the business and their work has to be valued. Disney works in a special way because each worker deals with different details making the customer experience an unforgettable thing.
There is no doubt why every time we leave the parks, we always want to return.
Don’t settle for little, always look for more
Returning to the example of the gold leaf for the carousel, this company is not content with little; they could paint the carousel with gold paint but they don’t do it because the goal is always to go to more and reach more.
Every day, you have to grow in knowledge and skills to work although sometimes it seems that it is better to leave it for another day. Do not settle for just your duty, rather seek to serve in another way. Another example, Disney rewards employees who take care of details like picking up trash, even if that is not their job
Learn from failures, celebrate achievements
It is very easy not to see more than the bad thing about failures. In many occasions, it is the only thing that is seen. Before each negative event, always seeks to compensate them with the positive ones.
The failures are resolved by reflecting on them and taking the necessary measures to grow. Meanwhile, celebrate achievements and always seek to reach more.
