The content equivalent to “life savings”.

Granting access to my “life savings” at

Might be one of the scariest things i’ve ever done with my business.

Should be a routine procedure for a WordPress expert.




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 website is about our mental attitude. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s physical health website, click here.

Wisdom comes from experience and experience comes from making mistakes


Thanks to double inguinal hernia repair surgery, a midlife revelation.

An important new direction and in many ways, the beginning

Mid Life Celebration began 30-something years ago simply as a dream of writing a book to my children about life’s important elements – to help save them time and heartache so they could move on to success, faster, and with more joy.

But then life happened.





The first or second worst economic crisis in the past 100 years.

We finally get to the place from which we long ago began, and now finally recognize it for the first time.

Without four days bed rest, and stillness, I would not be writing this this way.

And feel like I’m ready to begin, but this time with an ally I didn’t have: 4.5 years of entrepreneurial experience.

Playing For 64,000 People

Flash's Bumper Stickers - Wisdom & Epiphany (Who Knew?)
Flash's Bumper Stickers - Wisdom & Epiphany (Who Knew?)

Life is full of surprises, isn’t it?

And what we think would be one of the coolest things in the world, isn’t.

The 60-something-year old surf shop employee said playing for 64,000 people wasn’t any more enjoyable than playing for a small tavern full.

And all those years, we dreamed of the big stage, with screaming guitars….

Flash thinks I’m an nut job. A punk. Inexperienced. You could just tell.

Mid Life Grandparent?

Mid Life Sunday.  Ain’t it great to be alive.  I know I said that yesterday, but how can I not say it again?

Seriously!  It ought to be said every single day.  And if you’re a mid-life Grandparent, how lucky are you?

If our son waits as long as we did to have children, we’ll be 84.  No male on my Dad’s side has made it past 60. 

I live everyday as a Parent, of course.  And, what I decided after our son was born, was to also live everyday as a Grandparent.


Because I may never get the official privilege.  Seriously.  Ya with me?

Grandparents enter a stage in life, a season if you will, where withdrawing from life’s responsibilities and putting up their feet, almost seems like a rite of passage.  A final gift to take it easy, before they die.

Theoretically, retirees have more time and more money to invest in whatever they want to.

What if they invested it on the less fortunate, the needy, the overlooked, the sick, the weak?

Or at the very least, their Grandchildren.

It’s such a privilege to get older.  Tomorrow, when many observe our national holiday, Memorial Day, we might pause for a few moments of silence and thank those who never made it to old age, because they made the ultimate sacrifice, so we could.

Make it a GREAT day!  jeff noel  🙂
