Completely Different?

Running your own business is like a roller coaster ride

Amish post cards
Intentionally trying to exceed expectations with five wonderful human beings.

 

Running your own business is like a roller coaster ride, but without the built in safety that OSHA requires theme park owners to adhere to.

There is no safety net being an entrepreneur.

Everyday your business is at risk.

Unscrupulous people.

People going through an unexpected hell and they are not themselves.

People making promises with their spirit, but unable to deliver with their work habits.

Far too many arm-chair quarterbacks in the world.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

How many of us are comfortable taking selfies from this angle?

 

In the absence of having all the answers…

We must forge ahead anyway. Making mistakes.

Making mistakes is one of the best indicators you are making progress.

And then, oh and then…and then we can try again in a different way (risking another failure) and repeating this process until we eventually become capable at what we weren’t capable of.

Carving Out A Life

Theory this

Publix sweet cream butter
No longer using processed margarine. Suger elimination is on the radar as well.

 

Over the years, we develop theories about what we are capable of – and then we spend the rest of our days trapped in these theories.

Seven months without coffee or diet coke.

More than a month of zero emails for in-box, sent, and deleted folders.

And i told myself, “Never in a million years.”

So, a new question to keep asking myself, “What else are you carrying around that you believe to be impossible, you know, a theory?”

Half baked becomes an insidious habit

Walt Disney Company Investor Relations
Love the color palette. Could use some yellow.

 

You know the half-hearted exercise of asking, “What makes you come alive?”

How’s that working out?

When Your Life Changes

Dreaming stuff up and actually being organized enough to do it – well, you know

Lethbridge bridge
The journey is always off in the distance – many never leave the station.

 

Short and pithy posts weren’t part of the original April Fools Day vision. Sometime later, the notion of having a distinct way to describe the writing felt compelling.

However, dreaming stuff up and actually being organized enough to do it – well, you know.
