What do June 7 and December 24 have in common?

The childlike anticipation for special gifts in the morning.

New (unadvertised) website soft opening is tomorrow, June 8 (my 57th birthday).

Can’t wait to see what the team has put together.

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.

Disney Leadership Book

i should probably celebrate with something extra-ordinary

One of the thousands of Disney Best Practices Keynotes i delivered from 1999-2014.

Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay – staying in great hotels never got old.

 

Great Disney leaders take time to deliver personalized recognition, meaning that they need to know how each employee likes to be recognized, and honor that – versus traditional cookie-cutter  programs.

i should probably celebrate with something extra-ordinary.

Why?

Because today’s five posts complete the seventh consecutive year of of daily writing on five differently-themed websites.

Why five sites?

  1. Mind – we think
  2. Body – we move
  3. Spirit – we feel
  4. Money – we earn
  5. HQ – we dwell

Balance.

After a lifetime at Disney unsuccessfully searching internally for a role model for balance, i had the aha moment of a lifetime…

Wake up jeff, quit looking. Become the change you seek.

What Do You Write When You’re Not Sure Where To Start?

Yikes!!!!!!

We’ve all been there. Failure and success. Mostly failure. Right? Luckily we get those occasional victories. Feels good doesn’t it? But why don’t they come more frequently? Is it because we dream too big for our reality?

I guess society provides a smorgasbord of medications to distract and comfort us.

But what about those bases loaded home runs? The rare events in our lives that happen beyond anything we saw as possible. Everyone gets a few of these in their lifetime. Why only a few?

And with those few rare, big victories, there’s the reality of trying to find a humble, grateful way to celebrate those rare moments for as long and profoundly as possible.

Mid Life Pace

Clearly Ahead Or Clearly Behind?
Clearly Ahead Or Clearly Behind?

Happy Friday everyone and thank you for visiting Mid Life Celebration. Ever work really hard for a really long time and wonder how you’ll keep your pace going?

What many great leaders do is celebrate the journey, not just reaching the final goal. They learn the power of celebrating milestones.

In our personal and professional lives, we face this same challenge. How to keep a fast and steady pace to accomplish all that’s expected of us.

The secret?  Celebrate milestones. Are you familiar with this concept?

Milestones are what you make them. There is no science to it, other than to simply find things to celebrate and feel good about, because the goal is to keep your midlife pace going.

The alternative is to lose interest and quit.

Tomorrow, I’ll share a few Mid Life Celebration milestones and invite you to share some of your own.
