Live before you die (reprise)

Live before you die (reprise).

Not gonna lie, this is the fifth of five blogs i’m having to fix calendar counts for.

Of course, i don’t need to do this.

Decent chance no one will ever know.But

But i’ll know, and for some reason, investing 48 hours to write roughly 200+- posts to accomplish this seems like it will give me peace.

Carpe diem

What does that mean, “carpe diem”?

Most people, myself included, think it means, “Seize the day“!

Here are some thoughts I just found on “seize the day”:

Every man dies.  Not every man really lives.  ~Braveheart

As you grow older, you’ll find the only things you regret are the things you didn’t do.  ~Zachary Scott

Dream as if you’ll live forever.  Live as if you’ll die today.  ~James Dean

I’m glad I have a website.  I put if off for a long time.  I was lazy, worried, busy, ignorant, etc.  Do you have a website?  Great if you do.  If you don’t, why not.  Live, before you die.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Yo!

Yo!

Hello. Glad you found this site. I can’t wait to make it a place where you can visit to get encouragement to “Do Something Great“, before you die.

We ain’t gonna live forever.

Wake up, World!

The privilege to be alive. To have breathe in our nostrils. To have life. To have the opportunity to serve. To help others. WOW!

Mother Theresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great love“.

We can. We will. If we all work together!

We’re all going through some sort of Hell, so please don’t think I’m oblivious to this fact. I’m not.

I’ve been here 50 years. I’m acutely aware of life’s challenges.

That’s why, if we can find a source of strength, which may be this little cyber-community, we can encourage each other to “Do Something Great“!

The clock is ticking. Our intentions ain’t gonna get it done. Our actions will.

Make it a GREAT day, because if you don’t, who will? Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Back to the future on that April Fools Day 2009

Back to the future on that April Fools Day 2009.

(i’m writing this post on November  25, 2017)

The original post, “today”, was too “Disney” to keep public, so i deleted it and many others to err on the side of caution because Disney and Disney Institute had no social media policy.

i over-focused and over-committed on keeping it admirable and never crossed any lines – and was never asked to delete a thing.

Here’s the thing though, with no tangible rules, there was the perceived danger that a less progressive Disney leader could over-react and have a knee-jerk reaction.

Even the the odds were low, they weren’t zero, so i proactively went first.

There was no way of knowing what began today (April 1, 2009) as a 100-day, self-imposed writer’s boot camp would morph into an eight-plus year run.
