Baylor University Is Famous For Many Things, Including Michael Johnson, A Game Changer

Baylor is famous for many things, including Michael Johnson
There is no track & field complex on Baylor's main campus (what the heck)

jeff noel studied the Baylor University campus map, rubbed his eyes, looked again and mumbled softly, “Where the heck is the track?”

Spotting a couple students shooting hoops, noel soon got directions. I-35 South, right on Valley Mills, another right at Katie’s Frozen Custard, it’ll be on that road, can’t miss it.

jeff noel is now on Facebook.

Like yesterday’s post about joining Twitter a few days ago, last night I joined Facebook.

So?

Exactly.

It means nothing to some and to others, it means I’m embracing the future.

The future isn’t going to wait because we aren’t ready.

It’s coming at us like a freight train.

Whether we seize the day or not, the day still comes and goes.

Before we know it, we could be on our death bed.  Seriously.

I don’t live with the fear of dying.

I live with the fear of not fully living.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

PS.  It’s not even 7:00AM yet, and this is my 5th blog post this morning.  I’m not bragging, nor am I making any excuses, about what I do.  I just do it and if you want to criticise me or cheer for me, the choice is yours

The choice is always ours, isn’t it.  Particularly when it comes to our attitude.

Carpe diem,  jeff noel 🙂

jeff noel is now on Twitter.

Joined Twitter a few days ago.

Took the plunge.

Did you see the cover of this week’s Time Magazine?

The Time Magazine issue I have Twitter on the cover.  Seriously.

Tomorrow, I’ll tell you what I did today – in terms of social networking that is.

Hey, I hope you have a great day.  This is an exciting time we live in.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Midway Through 100 Days

Weekend Festivities?

A three-day weekend.  Those don’t happen much in my world.

Do they in yours?

I actually work seven days each week, in order to have what I define as balance.

Balance, is individually interpreted by people.  There isn’t one way to get it.

Just like there isn’t one way to invest money, get in shape or start a business.

So for me, balance is about feeling a sense of decent control over my obligations.

The key here is that the goal is not complete control, but an overall feeling of decent control.

At work or at home, there is a ton of responsibility.  Many tasks and deliverables in both places.

Balance helps me feel that I’m in decent (never perfect, and rarely even excellent) control of balancing life’s four big boxes.

I’ll have to tell you later about life’s four big boxes.

So for now, carpe diem, and Happy Saturday!  jeff noel  🙂
