This Netflix series about a Midwest girl who is kidnapped and forced to live underground for 15 years is as jam-packed with insights as it is hilarious. Kimmy emerges on the streets of New York City fresh, innocent and enthusiastic, bubbling over with brilliant one-liners that stop viewers in their tracks. Here are a few lessons for meeting planners from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s quirky cast of characters:
All you have to do is take life 10 seconds at a time
Solve one issue, move on to the next. Chunk it down.
Celebrate the small wins
Let your team know what they did right this time.
No matter what your crisis, the world is not ending
Every problem has a solution, though you may not feel like it at the moment.
Follow you passions, even if you’re not very good at them
This one is for Titus Andromedon, Kimmy’s hilarious roommate, who fled his wedding in Mississippi to develop an alter-ego, an aspiring Broadway actor.
Smile until you feel better
On the show, it’s called “Kimmying,” but in real life there’s a direct correlation between smiling and your mood. More more tips on what to do when life sends you lemons (or geese, as in this example), check out Captain Sully’s tips.
When in doubt, Pinooooooooooot Noooooooooir!
