You’re Probably Afraid Where You Stand

Who Standing There?
Who Standing There?

How’s that for a jeff noel five daily blogs blog post title?

“You’re Probably Afraid Where You Stand”

Would this be good on a business card?

As a slogan?

As a conversation starter?

As a kick in the ask pants?

Your pants.

Chicago Library Is Threatened

Chicago Library Lower Right
Chicago Library Lower Right

Earlier this morning, we talked about how Libraries and book stores are going to go away. Can’t predict when, but it will happen.

Unless Libraries and bookstores reinvent the book paradigm.

They will either become victims or victors to creative thinking and shifting consumer demands and trends.

While today’s first (this is the second) jeffnoel.com post is only a few hours old, this jeff noel One-Take-You Tube video dates back to August 20, 2009, nearly five months ago.

I was simply walking down a busy Chicago street, on the way to the Willis Tower (Western Hemisphere’s tallest building), and stopped, looked across the street at the Chicago Library, had an epiphany, pulled the camera out on my pocket, took a deep breath and here’s what happened:

No Wait This IS Funny

Trust me on this one, this one is actually some of my best work, if you can call One-Take-You Tube videos work.

Makes me laugh, because I just turn on the camera and start talking. No idea what I’m going to say. No editing. Just a One-Take-You Tube video.

You Know What’s Funny?

Are You Serious?
Are You Serious?

Comedians are funny.

America’s Funniest Home Videos are funny.

Kids Say the Darndest Things show is funny.

Bloopers are funny.

Being serious is funny.

Huh?

Yes, being serious is funny. Remember the cartoon Walt Disney did so well back in the 1930’s, The Three Little Pigs?

Remember the one Pig that built his house with stone?

Pretty funny when the big bad wolf came and he huffed and he puffed and he blew the other houses down.

Now that’s funny.

What’s not funny, is that scene and this blog post may have been lost on ignorant, ill-prepared people who pawn themselves off as adults.

The Truth Hurts

Fog
Fog

The truth hurts. The truth can also set us free.

“Yeah, yeah, whatever!”

Can’t you just hear people saying this, or thinking it?  I say it too.  We all do sometimes.

In fact, I’ve said this all my life.

“Yeah, yeah, whatever.”

Until a few years ago when things began to change.

One close friend describes me as, “A Transformed man.”

Just yesterday, at jeffnoel.org (spirit) I posted about the fog, the semi-conscious state many of us seem to go through life with. Some may call it auto-pilot.

As we are into the fourth day of the new year already, wanted to remind everyone that the goal from all this writing is:

  1. To leave a trail for a young child
  2. To help others with their goals
  3. To eventually raise money to find a cure

These things have the ability to help transform anyone. At the moment, it’s working slowly, but powerfully.
