Weekend Festivities?

A three-day weekend.  Those don’t happen much in my world.

Do they in yours?

I actually work seven days each week, in order to have what I define as balance.

Balance, is individually interpreted by people.  There isn’t one way to get it.

Just like there isn’t one way to invest money, get in shape or start a business.

So for me, balance is about feeling a sense of decent control over my obligations.

The key here is that the goal is not complete control, but an overall feeling of decent control.

At work or at home, there is a ton of responsibility.  Many tasks and deliverables in both places.

Balance helps me feel that I’m in decent (never perfect, and rarely even excellent) control of balancing life’s four big boxes.

I’ll have to tell you later about life’s four big boxes.

So for now, carpe diem, and Happy Saturday!  jeff noel  🙂

You Tube versus Hulu?

You Tube just announced it’s bid to remain the Internet’s leading video source.

But they better move quickly, because being number one doesn’t mean you get to stay number one.

Click here to read the article.

Seems that Hulu has made full-length video streaming free and expansive.

Where the heck was You Tube while Hulu was figuring this out?

I see things like this in the news and, because the funny way my brain works, immediately wonder , “So what does this me to me”?

The answer?


Getting to the top spot in business, in life, in school, in athletics, etc, is one thing.  Staying there is a completely different effort.

When you’re the underdog, your competition dismisses you.  When you’re the champion, everybody want s to knock you off your throne.

Ya with me?  Hope so.  Make today a GREAT day to get there or stay there, because if you don’t, somebody else will.  

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

What a GREAT Day!

Today was an awesome day.

  • Relatively pain-free run.   See Lane 8 for details on the story.
  • Great Homily at Church
  • Great connections with special people at Church
  • Swimming, Lunch & Nap with my son this afternoon
  • Cub Scout Awards Banquet & our son received his Wolf Cub Badge
  • My wife totally added a woman’s touch to the Banquet decorations/logistics
  • My son & I spoke with my Mom about the awards he received

Not all days have so many obvious blessings that can be recounted.  However, today was that kind of day.

They don’t come as often as any of us would like.

And yet, I’ll take them whenever they come, even if they’re few and far between.  Signing off at 9PM.  Carpe PM, jeff noel  🙂
