Carpe Diem and Be Inspired

Carpe diem and be inspired.

Mid Life is a wonderful opportunity to challenge yourself to do things you’ve always wanted to, but were:

  • Too busy
  • Too scared
  • Tried but failed
  • Thought were impossible
  • Foolish
  • Blah, blah, blah

There’s always going to be reasons to make you hesitate, quit, or chicken out.

What would it take for you to overcome this?  These are the questions and the challenge I place before myself.

Would you like a seat at the same table?

If so, then make today the day you stretch yourself. Do one small thing you’ve always wanted to do.

Do it. You can. You can do it.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

PS.  Personally, I think regret stinks.

Are You Obsessed?



Recently, I asked a friend for the perception of my work ethic, trying to identify any “blind spots”.

My friend, asked, “Are you obsessed”?

Intuitively, I said, if Walt Disney was sitting here with us, I’d say, “You first Walt”.

Walt would reply, most likely, “Damn right I’m obsessed. Absolutely”!

Told my friend, when you turned to me to get my answer, I’d simply reply, “Ditto”!

The road to excellence has no finish line.  Whether you are at work, engaged in your favorite hobby, or sitting in a pew at Church.

It’s also the same at mid-life.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Shhhh, It’s a Secret

Is it a secret?


The vision for Mid Life Celebration.

No, it’s not a secret. But it is crazy.

Crazy? Why?

Because who am I to think that I could rally enough Baby Boomer men to help make the world a better place?

There’s roughly 80 million Baby Boomers. Let’s say half are men, that’s 40 million.

Let’s suppose, since 97% of the world’s wealth is controlled by 3% of the population, there’s an assumption that says 3% in any category are “movers and shakers”.

Three percent of 40 Mil is 1.2 Million Baby Boomer men who are predisposed to be excellent.

Initially, I’d like to challenge these 1.2 million men, as they start to retire and have, theoretically, more disposable money and certainly more disposable time, to do something great.

To turn off the television, get up of their butts and “do something great“!

The “doing something great” definition encompasses this:

  • As simple as mending an important Family relationship
  • Help raise enough money to find a cure for an incurable disease
  • Or, anything in between the first two suggestions

The world needs a ton of help. Elder men ought to assume enough responsibility to proactively start the momentum for positive change.

If we’re lucky, these Baby Boomer men will create a ripple effect.

And then, Baby Boomer women, Gen X, Gen Y, Millennials and on down to elementary schools will be predisposed – to plants seeds of social, spiritual, physical, emotional and financial responsibility.

As President Obama has said, “We can.  We Will.  IF, we all work together”.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

What Is Mid Life Celebration?

What Is Mid Life Celebration?

Simply put, it’s a process for people, especially those in mid-life, to:

  • Re – think
  • Re – prioritize
  • Re – commit

Profoundly simple. Simply profound.

If I have to explain this to you, you are not ready for it.

But I’ll make a deal with you. If you’re not yet ready, and you continue to read this blog, you’ll get my very best effort to intrigue you and challenge you, to want to have a mid-life celebration.
