Inspiration From Email?

Pretty Flowers

I’m “off” today and spending a little time on enhancing the whole social networking thing. Here’s a second jeff noel blog post for today, inspired by my reply to an email I received ten minutes ago:

Just this morning, when our son’s third-grade teacher asked me how I was doing and I said, “Excellent!”, I followed up with her, to be clear, by saying, “I have the weight of the world on my shoulders like everyone else, but I’m not going to let in interfere with my day.”

Pick any one my five daily blogs, read about 10-15 posts, and then tell me it can’t help you if you made reading it (them) the same habit I make writing it (them).

Or, you can do what you always do.

By the way, I have been involved in a career, with the same organization, for 26 years.  Did you catch that?  The same organization.

Seriously, you would think that blogging is my job.  It’s not.  It’s a newly (a year ago) discovered tool to help me become a world-class Dad.

Whatever you choose, may all the blessings and success you deserve, come your way.

West Orange Times

What motivates and inspires people to take action?  Words, and phrases.

Here a few from last Thursday’s West Orange Times.  Our small town newspaper is mailed once each week.  There was a center page section full (13 total) of ads.

  • Building Life-Changing Christian Relationships (Church)
  • WELLTRAX (Wellness Center)
  • Reinvent Yourself! (Education)
  • your next level (advertising)
  • Elevate Your Image (advertising)
  • Strengthen Your Brand (advertising)

Phrases and words have some sort of magical power to travel to the part of our brain that says, “You can do better.”

With New Year’s Eve six weeks away, people begin asking, “What can I do better?”

What is one of the craziest , or perhaps high impact New Year’s Resolutions you’ve ever made?

What Would You Do?

If you knew you could not fail, what would you do differently?  Know what I’ve learned in 50 years? All these quotes, cliches, sayings, parables, etc. – they only work if you do.

“No rules for success will work if you don’t”.

“Everything takes longer than we think it will, or longer than we want it to”.

“If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough”.

Quote me.  Love me.  Hate me.  It doesn’t matter.  What matters is what you do.  Got it?

For anyone thinking it’s more sophisticated than this, it ain’t.  Carpe diem!

Awesome Friday

It was an awesome Friday.  Don’t have time right now to tell the whole story, but for me to say it was awesome is pretty significant in my mind.

But then again, I’m thought of by many as “crazy”, the way many thought Walt Disney was “crazy”, or Barack Obama is crazy.

One of the things that was significant today was the tremendous validation for my efforts to make the world a better place.

What a blast. Making these jeff noel You Tube videos.  This one is border line blooper.  But then again, I had so much fun this morning at physical therapy – the reason I was at Florida Hospital Celebration Health – that I’m totally ok with it.

It beats not making these You Tube videos and wondering what it must take to do them.   Ya with me?

It’s Friday night as I post this.  Carpe PM, jeff noel  🙂
