I usually don’t share all of the clever tweets I come across in an evening; most are clever quips or a sentiment that strikes randomly with the sort of day I have had. This evening, my Twitter feed updated to include a few new ones I had not yet seen over the last few days, and one stood out as something we can all learn from. Michael Eisner, ex-Disney CEO 1984 – 2005, had some wise words to share, courtesy of Walt Disney himself. “Everybody falls down. Getting back up is how you learn to walk.”
The quote was shared in relation to the Disney Company’s rocky past few years, as if to say it’s time to move on and learn from this struggle. Disney has had a lot to contend with in the last three years, a Pandemic, substantial social change, and ousted ex-CEO Bob Chapek, whose mark will forever be left on Disney as an unfavorable one. Eisner’s reminder comes at a time when both executives and fans alike are looking forward to a brighter future where Disney returns to its focus on creativity and storytelling.
