My Friend Said This

“To know is to do.  To know and not do, is to not yet know”. —  jeff’s friend

Said another way:  “Common sense needs to be common practice”. – jeff noel

Otherwise, it’s like we don’t even know what common sense is.

Yes, this is painful to admit.  Yes, it’s not easy to apply common sense. Yes, our lives will become better (not perfect) if we apply more common sense to our lives.  Yes, it’s completely up to us. Always has been.  Always will be.  Carpe diem!

Michael Jordan On Failure

“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career.  I have lost almost 300 games.  On 28 occasions, I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and missed.  I have failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed”. —  Michael Jordan

Boy this sure sounds familiar….

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, You Tube, Blogs, SEO……

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, You Tube, Blogs, SEO……

What does it all mean?

Not sure exactly.

I have pretty decent intuition.  I can see farther out than many can.

What does all of that mean?

Again, not sure really.

But I do know one thing for sure.

I believe that it’s possible for one individual to work hard, follow some common sense guidelines, and reach one million website hits in the course of one year.

A million in a year?

Yep?

How do I know?

Because I’m well on my way to doing it.

There are probably two camps of readers at this moment:

  1. jeff noel sure is egotistical.  What a jerk!  He’s must think he’s special.
  2. jeff noel sure is inspiring.  He’s a nobody, but he’s willing to work very hard to do the impossible.

I hope most of you subscribe to number two.  🙂

Bottomline:  I’d rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I’m not.

We’re all gonna die sometime.  This is the great equalizer and common denominator among all humans.

What is not common is, as Mother Theresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great love”.

That’s all I’m trying to do?

What are you trying to do?

Hope it’s great.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

jeff noel now on Twitter

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 🙂
