What if?

Field of dreams?


Editor’s comment: this is written for an audience of one, me. If it resonates (or makes you feel uncomfortable), perfect. That’s exactly why i write these blogs to myself (and our Son, for future use)…

Where is our field of dreams?

Since 2000, i’ve become clear about the habitual pattern for using distractions, medications, and entertainment to manage the pain we experience from our unfulfilled promises to ourselves.

Yes, i think we all do it…

Medicate, distract, and entertain ourselves into a pleasurable state to avoid the pain from still secretly holding onto big dreams we have no intentions of fulfilling.

Yeah, it’s tough being an adult.

Giving up alcohol 15 years ago and caffeine one year ago have facilitated incredible focus on the obvious.

Achieving our crazy dreams require us to rethink, reprioritize, and recommit.

The long way is the short cut.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
