Replacement post today

The original post that went live at 12:05am this morning has been taken down.


It was deeply personal.

Maybe too personal.

The key insight today is that passion and compromise sometimes must find a way to coexist.




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.

Give a little bit

Give a little bit. That’s what life’s about. So I didn’t get all five posts done before heading out to teach all day at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

So here I am at 9:30pm writing the fifth of five daily, different-themed posts. This rarely happens because I’m organized enough to be 99.9% able to git ‘r done before leaving the house.

PS. There’s a hopeful message in this post (that reads like a diary entry). Simply this, know where you want to go, be prepared to make sacrifices, have fun, and never quit. Ever.

The Art of Compromise

It's Who You Know
It's Who You Know

Heard this phrase the other night, probably on the TV as I was walking though a room, and I wrote it down.

“The art of compromise.”

We can take guesses as to what this means, or we can simply make up our own meaning. That’s what I did, and came up with five different ways:

  1. Compromising our mind, intellect
  2. Compromising our body, health
  3. Compromising our spirit, faith
  4. Compromising our money, career
  5. Compromising just about everything, CEO of Me, Inc.

The comment’s intent targeted the Senators power to say “no” to President Obama – relationships and the passing of President Obama’s Health Care Bill.

Some Senators held their vote until they got a really good deal for their state. This had people debating it’s fairness, and the Senator’s enormous power to say, “No.”

At the end of the day, it’s really about relationships and who you know.

Or maybe, just maybe, it’s about who you no.
