Will i have the guts to do what i said i was going to do?

To live as if i had only 10 years left to live.

In seven more days i turn 57.

Three years left.

The first seven, in retrospect, flew by.

In spite of that, they were also savored.

Retired at 55, just like i said i was going to do.

Started a business, as promised.

Wrote that book.

Living like i mean it.




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.
