All he did was remember my name


How Dr. Marcy (Windermere Prep Headmaster) remembered my name is astonishing. At halftime, i told him so.

The way it made me feel was remarkable.

All he did was remember my name among the thousands of people he associates with.

Let’s assume, in Dr. Marcy’s world:

  • 1,000 students in K-12
  • Year after year (after year)
  • Assume two parents (another 2,000 people) (year after year)
  • Assume a multitude of staff, vendors, government officials, and various other associations

The power of individualized attention.




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.

“Be yourself.  Everyone else is taken.”Life Is Good slogan

I used to look for sea shells on Sanibel Island, Florida.  You know the ones – the perfect shape and color.  The ones that looked like they came from the sea shell store.

Not any more.

Now, I look for ones that are unique and special – broken and beautiful.

Just like us humans.

Broken and beautiful.

Like Tiger Woods.

Like me.

Like you.
