Most Worried About?

What am I the most worried about, when it comes to writing five blog posts every single day?

Content.  Quantity. Yes, quantity over quality at this point.

Why?   I’m really in the infancy stage of developing these blogs.

The concept is easy for me to understand, but not so much for others.

Take running, reading, writing, or even cooking.  What is a simple, fundamental concept to be good at these?

Want to be a good runner  – run a lot.

Want to be a good reader – read a lot.

Same with writing.  Condition yourself first, before you start the “race”.

I compete in Master’s Track & Field at 400 meters.  That’s one lap. Done in less than one minute.

In training for this, I run 4-5 miles each day.  That’s 16 – 20 laps.  But the race is only one.

Do the quantity first, to lay the foundation for quality.

At least that’s what I do.  Carpe diem,  jeff noel 🙂

Guilty As Charged?

Guilty As Charged?

Probably.  Maybe?  Maybe not?

If someone thinks you are a “jerk”, because you never call, email, write – it could make you feel really guilty.

The antidote?

Remind yourself that it’s a two way street.

And that what the other person sees in you and is unhappy with, is the same thing you see in them and are unhappy with.

While this doesn’t completely wipe away my guilt, it certainly helps.

Old habits of dysfunction can be hard to break.  Hard to change.

My biggest struggle?   What’s the process to start the change.  And then, how do we keep the positive change alive?

Bring It On!

Bring It On!

What a glorious day to be alive.

Just finished six blog posts.  This is number seven this morning.

Now, I get to go to Disney World for the day, and attempt to teach smart, experienced, professional  people something new.

I love the challenge.  And so does my colleague.

Nothing is impossible for us.  Why just last night, my colleague bowled 150.  It’s a new PR for him.  His old PR was 138.

Nothing is impossible, unless you believe it to be impossible.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Biggest Human Fear Is…

The world’s biggest fear is…… drum roll please………..

Wait.   Before we reveal it, you all know the fear of death is number two, right?

And you know I’ve been a Professional Speaker for ten years, right?

Well, here’s a surprise.   All studies say Public Speaking is our biggest fear.

I completely disagree with the scientific data.

The biggest fear we have?

It’s not the fear of dying, it’s actually the fear of living.

Think about it for awhile.  If you deny this, then go out and do it.
