Sound Like You?

“After one has discovered what he is called for, he should set out to do it with all of the power that he has in his system. Do it as if God almighty ordained you at this particular moment in history to do it.”

Know who said that?

PS. This is the second post here today.  Scroll down for the first.

Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

Just Give Up, OK?

Hope Is Free
Hope Is Free

How often do you feel like giving up?  Like quitting? Like what you do doesn’t matter? That the effort is too much, the payoff too little?

Received an email today. Compelled to share it.  And it wasn’t from a blog conversation, but a LinkedIn connection.

We connected, like people do, and I sent a personal message, like I always try to do, mentioning, “I am selling hope, and it’s free.”

He sent back a reply, which was a little confusing, so I asked for clarification.  He said:

“I mean it’s about putting it out there.  My dad’s quote (and every dad’s?) – You’ll only get out of life what you put in …Keep selling hope – we all need it.”

Did you catch that?  What his Dad always told him?

“You’ll only get out of life what you put in.”

World-Class Benchmarking

Benchmarking.  Seeing, not how others do things, but more importantly, seeing how others think.

I am a serious bench-marker.   Way more than the average bear.

There will come a time when my (five) blogs have more sophisticated features.  All good things take time.  Rome wasn’t built overnight.  I didn’t wake up one day and get to represent the United States at the WMA Master’s Track & Field World Championships.  It took a decade.

Anyway, this blog caught my eye because of Trent’s 14 Money Rules.  Click here to go to Trent’s blog.  Scroll down a bit, its on the right side column.

Money, like our mind, body and spirit, need constant attention, otherwise we will not reach our potential.

jeff noel Talks About Lane 8.org

Happy Sunday everyone.  

It was weird taking a week off from posting here at jeff noel.com

But, you guessed it, I posted on three other blogs every single day – 21 jeff noel blog posts this week.

Quantity is a good thing.

Like I said before, if you want to be a great runner, you need to run a a lot.

If you want to be a great writer, it would make sense that you should write a lot.

And, to mix it up, use other methods to say the same thing.  Here’s a jeff noel midlife You Tube video from Lane8.org

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
