In my line of business at the Disneyland Resort, we have these things called Walks. What they really are are time that our managers and our leads take out of their day to do a walk through the park together and talk. We talk about life goals and where we want to go in the company, but we also just get to know each other better. Recently I have been really thinking about what my next steps are and I have been on a couple of Walks with two different managers. Both have given me great incite and advice on how to advance and things to think about as the summer progresses. A good walk can definitely renew your sense of pride in your job and spark interest in the future when it seems like a dying light.
