This May Sound Conceited

You're Either Making Progress, Or Your Not
You're Either Making Progress, Or You're Not

This may sound conceited, but I love the fact that I’m still writing five daily, differently themed blogs everyday. Sounds conceited to say, “The Internet’s Only Five-a-Day Blogger”.

All the critics say it won’t work, it will dilute your efforts, it will be too confusing for the readers, it will be too much work, you say the same thing over and over.

But remember, I don’t write to please the critics.

Are you willing to go against what people say is logical, in order to pursue a different way, a better way?

Are you willing to break the mold?

Or are you willing to take your regret to your grave?

Are you easily squirrel distracted?

I am.

Have a great Saturday everyone.

Do great work.

Lead a balanced life.

It happens one day at a time.

Tomorrow’s post will be from squirrel somewhere different.  🙂

Five A Day – Part Three

“Why did you create five blogs in the first place, knowing that you’d never be writing in all five everyday anyway?”

Two logical reasons:

  1. My model for balance had four parts, not two
  2. I’d link each of them to all the others, for SEO

Mid Life Celebration is about balancing life’s big choices, and there are four:

  1. Mind
  2. Body
  3. Spirit
  4. Money

This fifth blog, jeffnoel.com, was created because I thought there should be an “office” or “headquarters”, so to speak – one that didn’t have a theme and wasn’t part of the model.

And when the previous jeffnoel.com didn’t renew after having that domain, www.jeffnoel.com for seven years, it was a natural choice to pick my given name as a dot com.

That’s it.  That’s how it happened.  And now, I can’t stop myself.

In a sea of blogs that drone on about whatever, I’m carving out a space among the few who have five-a-day, droning on about whatever.

MacBook, Excellence and Change?

MacBook, Excellence and Change?

In an ongoing effort to be excellent, I bought a MacBook on Saturday.

Friends and colleagues have told me for years that Apple computers are way beyond a Microsoft Windows Internet experience. 

I thought, “How different could it possibly be“?

In a nutshell, here’s why I went Apple

Intuition!

After recent “pressure” from a few friends and some simple Disney continuous improvement tactics, I determined that hands down, the iPhone is my next phone.

When I started to see gigantic differences between an Apple iPhone and other phones, I took a quick look at Apple computers.   Know what my first reaction was?

WOW!

Expensive?  

Yes.

Cheaper options?

Yes.

Than why?

This is one of those times where I think to myself, “If I have to explain it to you, you won’t understand“.

While Apple’s market share is pale compared to Microsoft, it won’t be forever.

MacBook, Excellence and Change?   Damn straight!

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
