The post that was originally here has been removed because i inadvertently made an honest mistake over six years ago.
Mid Life and the art of Carpe Diem.
How does one, while in mid-life, seize the day?
For me, it’s a constant, never-ending focus on being present.
I can hear a few people thinking, “OK Einstein, how do you do that“?
Again, it’s a habit of trying to always be present.
Like Tiger Woods told me last year, to be world class in anything, you have to “Out work ’em”!
Each day I try to be better than I was the day before. And at the very least, no loss – at least maintain the level from the day before.
No rules for mid-life success will work unless you do. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
Happy Monday everyone. Hope you had a nice weekend, and that your mid-life week ahead is motivating.
I was reflecting on why I started blogging, and I’m still convinced that helping others in Mid Life, to do something great, is still a good and decent thing to do.
So, in blogging, and business, and just about anything really, if people don’t know about your service or product, you become a statistic.
I’ve read that somewhere around 90-95% of ventures that people start disappear after five years. Meaning, they no longer exist.
Many reasons to be sure.
Marketing is a big one.
While there is temptation to feel uncomfortable with self-promotion, I believe it must be overcome.
Your vision is completely at risk if people don’t know about it.
So, Google this: Mid Life Celebration. Being in the top three on a Google search is a VERY good thing.
If you’re on the first page, that’s great, but not as great as the top three.
Now, Google this: jeff noel.
What’s the point?
The harder you work, the luckier you get. I’m darn lucky to be number one and number four.
Make it a great day today a great mid-life day, because if you don’t, who will? If not today, when? Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
Mid Life Business Blogging and Social Media?
Social Media is so exciting to me.
Because of it’s limitless potential.
Here’s an article, Five Social Media Rules of Engagement , with a few common sense, social media guidelines. There are plenty of other social media and social networking articles at this site www.ploked.com .
I’m going to add a PAGE in the right column for links to other social media and social marketing articles I find.
I already have a list started on another blog PAGE, entitled Better Business Blogging 101 .
While originally targeted to Baby Boomers and Gen X-ers, it’s usefulness and relevance may work for many others.
There’s never been a better time to be going through a mid-life crisis or mid life celebration than 2009.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
Hey Mid-Lifer’s, Check Your User Name is a website that can help you see where you sit in the digital marketplace.
Using LinkedIn has been a great eye-opener to what various businesses and professionals are doing to leverage the Internet and Social Marketing, SEO, and Social Media.
I’m a Mid-Life magnet for great insights, best practices, and results.
If you where ever to think of yourself as a magnet, what would you attract?
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
