526: Habits - Lee Cockerell relies on expert help

Let us go behind the scenes with Lee Cockerell, our guest in show 525. Lee spent 10 years as executive vice president of Disney where he was in charge of the entire magical kingdom, many resort properties, and 40,000 employees! He gave us a great message, don’t miss that interview. But today we walk through his habits for success, going over the 7 spokes in the Ziglar Wheel of Life. Some highlights: He works to maintain the same weight he was in the army at age 20, and he’s 74 today. He has a Starbucks decaf every day, on no medication with great blood pressure. He spends a lot of time with family and stresses to his employees to never miss family time, not even for work! He views his brain as having malleable software and works with experts to help him manage and succeed. He grew up poor and feels it hardwires the brain. Today he is still frugal, driving a decade old car and relies on his financial advisors. Spiritually he needs to do more work, he says. He’s had some rough times, has been the bad guy and wants to be a better person. He built his career on discipline and empathy and admits he loves public speaking because he needs the “people clap”.
