Several years ago I met a gentleman who served on one of Walt Disney's original advisory boards. Those early days were tough; but that remarkable, creative visionary refused to give up. I especially appreciated the man's sharing with me how Disney responded to disagreement. He said that Walt would occasionally present some unbelievable, extensive dream he was entertaining. Almost without exception, the members of his board would blink, and stare back at him in disbelief, resisting even the thought of such a thing. But unless every member resisted the idea, Disney usually didn't pursue it. The challenge wasn't big enough to merit his time and creative energy unless they were unanimous in disagreement! - Charles Swindoll,
