Simplicity is Complicated
Simplicity is Complicated

Simplicity is an elusive goal sometimes.

Ok, simplicity is elusive most of the time.

But so are a lot of things that are important.  Should that stop us from our pursuit?

There is only one, resounding answer to this question.

And maybe by tomorrow I’ll have my movie soundtrack song(s) to share with the world.  This was a fun, and frustrating, exercise.

And anything but simple.

Should have seen it coming.

Lexington Medical Center Excellence

A few days ago I posted a one-take-You Tube video while passing through the Columbia, South Carolina airport. Lexington Medical Center’s unbelievable track record of excellence caught my eye.

Well, they are even more amazing than we first thought. They’ve actually been rated number one for ten years, not eight.

They even have their own You Tube channel. So I checked it out. And may I suggest you think about doing the same?

Whether your You Tube videos are professionally done, whether you do them in one-take, or even if you’ve never shot a You Tube video, you can learn about excellence at any moment.

Click here, if you have a moment now.

The road to excellence has no finish line.

Many people I know perceive mid life as a time that signals the beginning of the downhill side of life – the decline.

Rubbish. However, Henry Ford once said something to this effect, “If you think you can, or you think you cannot, you are right.”

What is there to be joyful about at midlife?  Everything. Even the wellness challenges we all face. Pick one: mid life crisis or mid life celebration.

No brainer, eh?

Mid Life Celebration on You Tube

Mid Life Celebration.  It’s the antithesis of mid life crisis. Same thing, different outlook.

Attitude makes all the difference, doesn’t it?  Whether it’s personal or professional, attitude is a way to excel in anything.

jeff noel (that’s me), founder at Mid Life Celebration, was traveling through Columbia, South Carolina a few days ago and noticed this airport hallway billboard.

To be excellent once, or maybe twice, is a huge accomplishment. But to do it eight straight years, well, unbelievable.

But that’s exactly what Lexington Medical Center has done. Here’s the one-take-You Tube video with my commentary:

You know what watching this video does for me? It reminds me that attitude is everything and also that much can be gained by reinforcing simple principles like this. Ya with me?

Are You Obsessed?

Obsessed?

Maybe.

Recently, I asked a friend for the perception of my work ethic, trying to identify any “blind spots”.

My friend, asked, “Are you obsessed”?

Intuitively, I said, if Walt Disney was sitting here with us, I’d say, “You first Walt”.

Walt would reply, most likely, “Damn right I’m obsessed. Absolutely”!

Told my friend, when you turned to me to get my answer, I’d simply reply, “Ditto”!

The road to excellence has no finish line.  Whether you are at work, engaged in your favorite hobby, or sitting in a pew at Church.

It’s also the same at mid-life.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
