The hours invested are staggering. So is the payoff.

The hours invested are staggering. So is the payoff.

 

It takes guts to be personally organized to the point where your life is dramatically better than if you hadn’t paid the price to figure things out.

Simple Is As Simple Does

Are You Paying Attention?
Are You Paying Attention?

Simple is elusive.

Focus is elusive.

Determination is elusive.

Humility is elusive.

Unless your life purpose is clear.

Reading yesterday’s post had me question my humility.  You read it and you saw “I did”.

The thing you should understand (in case you don’t) is that there are many people who can tell you what should be done and why, but they themselves can not – not nearly to the extent they preach.

It seemed to me, there was an opportunity for a common man (perhaps a Father) to step up and try it differently.

Eight Posts Yesterday

CAUTION!
CAUTION!

Blah, blah, blah, right?

The Internet’s only Five-a-Day Blogger”…..

It started as a 100-day challenge to become a better writer, after a Father told his young son, “If you want to be a better reader, you should read a lot.”

So what happens yesterday?  Not five daily blogs, but eight.

Recently, had a discussion and we talked about the future of books:

  • Books will be relics on display in Museums
  • eBooks will dominate
  • Kindle will destroy the publishing industry
  • The publishing industry will watch it happen
  • Librarians will lose their jobs
  • Unless they become Cybrarians
  • There were 177,000 books published last year
  • People think it’s hard to write a book
  • Authors think their book will sell many copies
  • Barnes & Noble will go out of business eventually
  • People get ready (Bob Marley reference)

“Books” will be written one day at a time. In public, for the public.

Books will be free.  Writers will be poor. And writers will come to realize that there are far too many choices.

A whole new paradigm is being created.

One page per day, almost like reality TV.  People will read blogs, and over time, they will have “read a book” and not even know it.

Eventually, this new paradigm will give way to the next.

Vision Statements Are For Others

Food for Families
Food for Families

Do you have a personal vision statement?  A personal mission statement? A personal brand?

I can see the “deer in the headlights” look through the cyber-sphere. “Huh? What are you talking about? Are you nuts?”, I can hear some say.

No seriously.  Do you?

If you do, congratulations.

If you don’t, why the hell heck not?

Six days until the new year.  New Year!  New You?

When?  May I ask you that?  “When?”

When will you finally get the courage (guts) to face yourself in the mirror and start to become the change you wish to see in the world?

Then we can really get this party started and make the world a better place for younger generations.

You do think that’s a good idea, right?  The part about making the world a better place.

jeff noel Five A Day

We are never so poor we don’t have something to give.

We are never so rich we don’t have something to receive.

Ever thought about that?

For me, not too much, until our Priest shared it on Sunday. But I wrote it down, it was that powerful, in that moment.

Later, it hit me. It reminds me of who we are as human beings.

And then, humbly, it helped me process why writing five-a-day daily blogs is now an important part of my life.

Are you doing all you can?
