Change yourself to change the world?

Change yourself to change the world?  

I went to the Apple store yesterday.   It intrigues me that Apple has forged a path, different then the status quo.

This challenges me to learn about Apple or not learn about Apple.   I have choosen to learn.

It dawned on me that the secret to success is having the right attitude.  And that the right attitude can be significantly influenced when there is a compelling reason.

Being a role model to my family is very compelling to me.   The moral – never stop learning.  Find a way to keep pushing your understanding, without sacrificing your core, your root values.

My goal in life is to become…

Our Dog is our Son.   And, my goal in life is to become the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

Think about it this way too:

Dogs are our link to paradise.  They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.   To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring – it was Peace.”   — Milan Kundera

May the Peace that surpasses all understanding be with you today.   Life is hard.  Trust me, I know.  You know it too.  It’s hard for everyone in their own way.  All of us have the weight of the world on our shoulders.  And if we don’t currently, we either did or will soon.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Five blogs?

Five blogs.   Yes.   Five.  

Why five?

That’s where fate has led me. 

Crazy?   Maybe.   Maybe not.   Where has fate led you?

This is all so new.   Seriously.   The blogging has only been happening consistently since February 2009.

It’s exciting most of the time.  Scary some of the time.  Taxing some of the time.   And always, all of the time, a privilege.

Here’s a post from yesterday at jeff noel.org – it lists all five links, if you’re inclined to look.

Make today a day to “Do Something Great”, because if you don’t, who will?  Carpe diem,  jeff noel
