Why Does Mickey Mouse Only Have Three Fingers and A Thumb?

So, why does Mickey only have three fingers and a thumb?

Disney said that this was both an artistic and financial decision, explaining “Artistically five digits are too many for a mouse. His hand would look like a bunch of bananas. Financially, not having an extra finger in each of 45,000 drawings that make up a six and one-half minute short has saved the Studio millions.”

Little things, done over and over, add up.  True in every industry, including animation.

And including our business.

Great video right?  It was raining, it was cold and it was windy.  None of which was going to stop us from getting it done.

We all know that if we wait for the sun to come out, things might not get done.  Ideal conditions for this video?  Certainly not.  Just do it. No excuses.

Let me tell you, when you end the day with a long list of things you accomplished, it’s a good thing.   It’s a much better feeling than procrastinating and putting things off until tomorrow.  Right?

At WREIA this month we are going to talk about the Three Things you can focus on to make an additional 75k (or more) by the end of the year.

It doesn’t matter where you are in your career.  Making 75k over the next 7 months is very, very doable.

But – you have to FOCUS.

Don’t get distracted by too many vacations.  You can let months slip away and the year will be gone before you know it.

The sun might not come out for a few days. Don’t get discouraged.  Focus and get your next step done today.  Just keep moving.

Don’t let your lack of knowledge get in the way.  Sometimes the best way forward is just blindly taking the first step.  If you hit a wall, start looking for a door, or a window, or do whatever you have to do to keep going.   (Lack of knowledge is the silliest excuse possible in 2017.)

If there is anything I’ve learned in this business it’s this – Nature rewards action.  If you have questions.  Ask.  I’m right here.

Don’t make excuses for why you can’t make it to WREIA this month.  We are all busy.  Unless you protect your time, and block off two hours to be with other successful investors each month, you will find something else to do.  Someone or some thing will come in and steal your “You” time from you.

Block off Monday evening – May 8th – right now.  Plan to be with us.  Reserve your seat at this link. 

Get focused and get moving.

Let’s make 2017 a great year for you and your business!


P.S.  So what does WREIA have to do with Mickey Mouse hands?  Did you miss it?  Little things, like procrastinating, making excuses or missing WREIA once or twice, start to add up.

Discipline yourself to invest in time for yourself.  How many other places can you go in the DC area where you will surround yourself with other investors who will genuinely want you to succeed and applaud you for your success?
