It's All We Have

As wonderful as some memories are

As wonderful as some memories are, never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.

Without the desire and passion to move forward, we are without desire and passion.

Let that sink in.

Then decide if you are excited about your future, or not.

And if you are not excited, what do you plan to do about it?

Dear Son

Will our hope fade or can we protect it?

Nursing home
Yesterday morning, writing the first of seven Disney Business books, bedside with my 91-year old father-in-law.

 

Embracing fear and failure puts you in charge of your plan starting today.

Is it possible to be intentional enough with our attitude so we can remain vibrant?

And can we nurture a balanced wellness approach to our life events even as we reach our final years?

Dear Future me

Teen running red dirt road
No regrets. Being active as a 57-year old allowed me to be his running partner at the start.

 

Dear Future me,

Don’t think you have forever to do all the things in life you want to do.

You will be wise to eliminate these three reactionary excuse starters:

  • i shoulda
  • i coulda
  • i woulda

Looking back and regretting something that you should have done, could have done, or would have done – ugh, now that is a terrible ending to your life’s story.

Find a million ways to figure this out.

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.

Back To The Future

When habits are changed, new life is born

(photo: The smallest of details on the left, the date. Last night at 10:49pm Autumn officially began… and yet it’s New Year’s day)

Happy Autumnal Equinox!

Not the salutation we’d expect on January 1, 2015.

Feeling on fire with anticipation today?

That’s the magic of challenging the way we’ve always done things.

Writing this on September 23, 2014, it’s so easy to taste the future yet savor the current moment and the days ahead.

Like double dipping.

Last January 1st, as an experiment in humility, began omitting key words:

I, my, me, or mine.

A major life transition is something we wait for all our lives.

When habits are changed, new life is born

But if we don’t find creative, purposeful ways to change, guess what happens?

Nothing.

A year from now we’ll wish we had started something today.
