Yesterday, our good friend Skip, posed a question in the comments. Knowing that many of you might not catch the comments, wanted to share it right here, right now – not for nuthin’:
Jeff, how do you define success for your five blogs?
Readership? Participation? Pro vs Con comments?
What is your ultimate goal with these five blogs? Make people think? Make people change? Help people change themselves?
Why should we care that you have produced five blogs per day (without missing a single day) for over one year?
Some of your readers weren’t around when you started this quest. Help us understand the importance of this endeavor.
Great questions Skip. Seriously. All of them have been answered already. As time goes by, the answers get buried deeper and deeper in the past posts.
It’s one of life’s challenges, to sort out what to believe and from whom.
Summary, just for you:
1. I write for Chapin (and myself).
2. The big goal is to challenge 3% of the male Baby Boomers to do something GREAT before they die.
3. The ultimate purpose is to raise enough money until a cure is found for Crohn’s disease.
Note. Superficial measures of success are the things you first described.
There is no reason to care what I do, unless a person is looking for an honest to God real person who practices what he preaches. Ain’t many of them around, I fear. If there are, they are quietly changing the world – and perhaps they ought to make some noise because the world needs many “real” people trying to serve a greater good.
And by real, I mean someone not motivated by personal wealth, who makes mistakes, and never gives up, and pushes/pulls others to do the same.
Does that help? 🙂
