Mid Life Moose Wisdom

Mid Life Moose Wisdom:

Aren’t our days great when we can be thankful for the simple things? Like a long (and maybe boring) plane flight that arrives safely. Like a friend who’s willing to drive the rental car so you can gaze uninterrupted at the beauty of a new place.  And like the ability to act like a teenager, while in mid life, when an Alaskan Moose walks in front of your vehicle.  Carpe diem.

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Mid Life Crisis?

Mid Life Crisis?  Mid Life Celebration?

Two choices.  Maybe there are more, but it only seems like two that are obvious.

So if you had a choice, which would you pick?

No brainer, eh?

Yep, no brainer.  Then why are so many unhappy?

Because life is hard.  Sometimes, it even feels impossible.

Balance (yeah right)

Take Your Time, But Hurry Up

“You no longer spend your life hurrying around the corner for something which is never there”.Rex Harrison

If we’ve heard it once, we’ve heard it a thousand times.  There is no guarantee in life, except that we will die.

There seems to be a delicate balance between hurrying and not hurrying. We shouldn’t rush blindly through life, bypassing life’s simple pleasures.

But then again, we can’t spend too much time doing what pleases us, because in the end, there really is much work to be done.  Our: mind, body, spirit, money, community, job, sleep, errands, chores, etc.

If we take our cue from nature, animals are constantly trying to survive. There is always the threat of danger lurking somewhere.  In nature the saying goes, “Survival of the fittest”. I’m not talking physically, I’m talking comprehensively.

Ya with me, comprehensively.  This means your day will be really busy. Or not.

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  🙂

Social Media and Mid Life Business Blogging?

Mid Life Business Blogging and Social Media?

Social Media is so exciting to me.

Why?

Because of it’s limitless potential.

Here’s an article, Five Social Media Rules of Engagement , with a few common sense, social media guidelines.  There are plenty of other social media and social networking articles at this site www.ploked.com  .

I’m going to add a PAGE in the right column for links to other social media and social marketing articles I find.

I already have a list started on another blog PAGE, entitled Better Business Blogging 101 .

While originally targeted to Baby Boomers and Gen X-ers, it’s usefulness and relevance may work for many others.

There’s never been a better time to be going through a mid-life crisis or mid life celebration than 2009.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
