Announce it when you’re done

Glacier National Park (GNP).

Character is the ability to carry out a worthy decision after the emotion of making that decision has passed.

Hyrum Smith

There’s a sense of accomplishment simply from announcing you are going to do something, like write a book. Announcing is a procrastinator’s miracle drug. Nothing has been accomplished but it feels like a big step has been made. Keep it to yourself and do the work first, then announce your results.

Be decisive.

Be decisive today.

Not tomorrow.

Not next week.

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.


This might not work, please be careful

Great things never begin with the bliss of certainty.

Blogging here is going to become more interesting in the coming days, weeks, and months.


Because today marks the official call to begin the official process.

Incredible what attitude contributes to making dreams come true.

Incredible, also, how fragile attitude can be when fear raises it’s ugly head and says, “This might not work. Be careful.”

Two things similar to crack cocaine that we use daily

Never used these cards – launched in 2009 with another bank that loves MLC way more


Doubt is so easy to summon.

Same with fear.

It’s like crack cocaine isn’t it?

Ridiculously addicting.

And the withdrawal symptoms from doubt and fear are excruciatingly painful.

So we stick with doubt and fear. They comfort us.

But when we lead with action and decisiveness, we move forward.

Go, no matter how slow!

The time will pass anyway.
