Thanks to Zuri, I watched Moana AT LEAST once every day since it was released on Netflix this summer! We’re talking 2 straight months of How Far I’ll Go, You’re Welcome, Shiny, and the rest of the soundtrack.
But I’m a complete musical nerd, so I honestly had no issues singing louder than the kids every time “our” jams came on.
I’ll give it to Lin-Manuel Miranda, he knows how to write some infectious music.
So anyway, after you watch something for that many times it becomes more than a good story, with good music. You start getting deep into it.
I found myself being inspired by this young animated girl.
So I said you know what? I want to see what would happen if I documented each scene of this movie.
What deeper lessons could I learn about accomplishing my goals?
(I also had to do this to keep myself sane after Zuri’s determined insistence on watching it multiple times a day.)
She’s a Scorpio, y’all. She’s passionate.
So, I used Trello to record the story. Enjoy my bite-sized summary of Moana.
I suggest reading the notes on the scenes in Moana first on the left-side, THEN read the entrepreneurial journey notes on the right-side.
Do I even need to say spoiler alert?
Like every single entrepreneur, Moana faces multiple challenges that could throw her off track, which some do. But instead, like successful entrepreneurs, she uses those challenges as a catalyst to seek inspiration, start again, and try harder.
In the end, Maui thought Moana needed him, but they both needed each other. I know…hold back the tears.
So Moana, like other successful entrepreneurs, could not win on her own. She had to collaborate with someone to reach her goal.
I can’t believe I got so mushy over this animated character, but in the end, a good story is a good story. And whether it’s animated, on screen, or in real life, a story has the power to captivate and transform someone’s thinking.
If you are an entrepreneur or really anyone, because we all face challenges in life, then remember that on the other side of the sunset is the sunrise, a chance to start again with better knowledge, skills, and inspiration.
….A chance to approach your zenith. Ok, ok, ok! So corny, but I had to do it.
What part of Moana’s journey do you relate to most?
PIN IT, PIN IT REAL GOOD
Trello was perfect to capture my running synopsis on Moana. I use Trello to organize and plan out all of my content plus lots of other things in my life and work.
