Mid-Life Crisis Bridges

Mid-Life Crisis Bridges

“The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn”.   — David Russell

One of the best ways to figure this out is simply to make choices, learn, and try again.

And many times, the choice we make is to not make a choice.

It’s no wonder learning takes so long.

I’d rather try and fail, than not try at all.

Mid-Life Revenge?

Mid-Life revenge?

“Revenge has no more quenching effect on emotions than salt water has on thirst”.   —  Walter Weckler

Mid-Life Value of Courage

Mid-Life Value of Courage.

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”.   — Anais Nin

Courage.  Vision.  Passion.  Commitment.  Patience.  Hope.  Faith. And, ultimately, Love.

These are key mid-life crisis values.

But hey, who am I to tell anyone what to value.  It’s your choice. 

All I challenge you to do is make one. 

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day.

Happy Summer Solstice, too.

“To escape criticism – do nothing, say nothing, be nothing”.  — Elbert Hubbard

At the risk of criticism……

Baby Boomers to the Economic Rescue

Baby Boomers to the economic rescue?

This Business Week writer, Nick Leiber, thinks so in his June 18 article, Entrepreneurship: The New Mid-Life Crisis

At age 50 – just made it on June 8 – I’ve already spent several years visioning what retirement might look and feel like.

For the past 18 months, I’ve been taking small steps, as time allows in my very busy mid-life schedule,  to be proactive.

What does that mean?

It means basically what the Business Week Small Business Blog article says.

Baby Boomers are, and will continue to be, tremendous entrepreneurs.

PS.  JFK once said, “The time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining”.

I say the time to think about retirement is a decade before it happens.
