Does 40 days and 40 nights equal seven years?

It does.

In exactly 40 days, we arrival at April Fools Day.

And on that day seven years ago, i began what literally seemed impossible.

For 100 consecutive days, write five daily, differently-themed blog posts about life’s five big choices: mind, body, spirit, money, and hq.


  1. Think:   MidLifeCelebration.com/blog
  2. Move:    Lane8.org/blog
  3. Feel:       jeffnoel.org/blog
  4. Work:    junglejeff.net/blog
  5. Dwell:    jeffnoel.com/blog

No one i know writes five daily, differently-themed blogs. Does this make me a great leader?


Does it mean i initiated a serious change?

Insight: Be careful in judging your efforts and your initiative based on someone else’s standards. Follow the trail or make a trail.




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.
