jeff noel's book Mid Life Celebration
Life by design or life by default… intentional or unintentional (very first Mid Life Celebration book)


Want to share this challenge with you. If we could write two obituaries, it would be these two:

  1. What it would read like if we made no changes in our life’s approach?
  2. What it would read like we actually did a bunch of the stuff we promised ourselves we would do?

And then after reading our two self-penned obituaries, which one makes us smile, feeling peaceful and contented?

    Failing isn’t failing.

    Not trying, yet always wondering – this is failure.
