Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Mid Life Travels

Mid Life Travels.  Whether we travel physically or mentally, we are always on a journey.

In an hour, I’ll be heading west on I-70 to Indianapolis International Airport.

As with many business travelers, speed is often the name of the game – get us there as quickly as possible.

Maybe the fundamental catalyst for a mid life crisis is our very nature to want to hurry along at the quickest pace.

More is better. Faster is better. Until we wake up one day and wonder how we got here. How we got to mid life so quickly.

Better get going. Don’t want to get caught in morning rush hour traffic and miss my flight.

Actually, I don’t want to miss anything mid-life has to offer.

Do you?

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Mind, Body, Spirit, Money

Mind, Body, Spirit, Money.

The big four.

I’m committed to figuring out these four simple concepts, now that I’m into mid-life.

There came a certain mid-life crisis moment, not sure when, that I realized I better start living and quit waiting.

Didn’t want to be guilty of going through the motions, and then finding myself on my deathbed, saying, “I should have”.  Or, “I would have”.  Or even, “I could have”.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

Dangerous words. Poisonous words. Deadly words.

You know the antidote, right?

It’s two simple words.  You know this already, right?

I’ll tell you later…….carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture. In ten days, one year will have passed since Randy left our earthly world for his next journey, perhaps a heavenly world.

We will probably start to see news media marking this anniversary. In advance of this, I’d like to share his original You Tube Last Lecture.

Randy Pausch’s story inspired me, and I’m an already inspired kind of guy. And not only me, but millions of others, to recapture some excitement, and commitment, to our childhood dreams.

What did it for me was his attitude towards awful news – “You have three to six months to live”.

Whether you are unfamiliar with his story, or know it well, I challenge you to view The Last Lecture this weekend.

We can all be thankful he gave such an inspiring Last Lecture, although I’m sorry he had to.

Living with regret must be a painful exit from this world.  Do something, now, while you still can.  Follow a childhood dream to completion.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
