Of course, i would like her to say…

Disney Author jeff noel
John Wiley and Sons was founded in 1807.

 

One week ago the email from Wiley inquired if i would be interested in talking about publishing with them.

Wiley?

Me?

Yes.

But i immediately tempered the opportunity, rather than getting excited.

Why?

In reality, it’s likely just an Editor fishing for opportunities. Similar to America’s Got Talent auditioning tons of hopefuls. Wiley, like any other business, relies on sales, and sales rely on products (and/or services). Books are their product.

Makes sense when you think about it. They have to hustle for business the same as everyone else.

The only difference here is that they came to me first. 😀

We had a productive and fun chat.

In yesterday’s call, i introduced Jeanenne to my goal of having my clients say, “I wish every author was like Jeff.”

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

Disney leadership books top
Six different Disney Business books are waiting to be written.

 

Some pieces falling into place for my next impossible goal:

The habit of two hours of daily writing (seven days a week).

Check.

More than enough content for six different Disney Business books.

Check.

A transformational and portable storyboard process to make writing streamlined and focused.

Check.

An irrepressible desire to help people solve their unsolvables.

Check.

A publishing process that’s affordable and efficient.

Check.

An indomitable will.

Check.

This means nothing to literally all but a dozen people in the world

Disney Way Keynote Speaker
Someday the one on the right will read Mid Life Celebration. He’ll decide when.

 

This means nothing to literally all but a dozen people in the world:

The Internet’s Only Five-A-Day Blogger.

It started simply as a desperate attempt to develop a writing habit strong enough to start, finish, and publish a book he’d promised to write 30 years prior.

It began without an ounce of fanfare April 1, 2009. Write five daily, differently-themed blogs – one blog for each of life’s five big choices.

Do this for 100 consecutive days. That ought to be catalytic enough to get a book on Amazon and Kindle.

Great By Choice Or Does Your Company (Or You) Stink?

This is a close up of the photo in yesterday's jeff noel blog post

Two compelling book titles in the Dallas/Fort Worth airport a few months ago. We can surmise that being great (left book) is done on purpose, and being bad (stinky, right book) is done by not being on purpose. This is the Midlife Movement and the Midlife Herd in a weird analogy. The truth (in these book titles) is rather harsh, isn’t it. So is midlife.

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:
