The writing epiphany from The Crown of the Continent

Lake McDonald reading room
Never knew there was a reading room in Glacier National Park (Lake McDonald Lodge).


Want to be a writer?

Or is there some other dream?

The secret to getting there?



In spite of the fear it’s not good enough.

One more thing, don’t worry about becoming famous, worry about being authentic (or fascinating) enough that your Family and friends will find value.

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.


What is unclear here with Maya is whether this was an epiphany

Maya Angelou quote

What is unclear here with Maya is whether this was an epiphany about herself or about our world.

The need for change bulldozed a road down the center of my mind. – Maya Angelou

Because everyone knows our world needs some work.

But who knows about the change we need to initiate?

No one? Not even us?

What triggers an epiphany?

Disney's Space Mountain


(photo: In Orlando, Mountains look different than ‘real’ mountains)

A blog comment recently acted as a catalyst for a brand new thought…

What allows people to not quit on a daily basis? For nearly all of us, quitting seems like a decent choice at least once a day. Could the antidote be having a clear, concise, and compelling vision of the future?

And here’s the epiphany:

Without the vision of what our future looks like, every mountain we climb offers us a view in which we then say, “Nah, that’s not it”.

We need to be clear about what we’re journeying to otherwise the mountain climbing gets old.

This happens in business all the time.

PS. This is from personal experience only.
