It's All We Have

Get started (looks good on paper)

Get started.

Can’t make it any simpler.

(looks good on paper)

But a paper idea is worthless.

You ok with settling?

By settling, i mean are you ok perpetuating the dreaming up ideas part, but not really getting anything “impossible” off the ground.

So, are you?

Okay with settling?

Then get started.

Happy New Years Day 2018.

Do you have a word for 2018?

Tentatively (because this is being written December 1, 2017) my word for 2018 is….

Go.

Everything Is Important

If only we had spent more time at the office

A mini epiphany is good for the soul. Had one yesterday. Epiphanies don’t come around much anymore, do they?

As toddlers, they happened almost daily. Our learning curve was massive back in the day.

But now? Now if we’re lucky as middle age grown ups, our learning curve looks like a straight line with just a tiny curve. The way a wooden board might look when slightly warped. Difficult to see any curve, but you can if you look closer.

The mini epiphany?

To let go of something that doesn’t matter. And it happened rather quickly after all this time holding on.

While the thing does matter, it is no longer up to this now comforted soul to worry about.

Still hopeful for those teammates remaining. They deserve goodness.

But have let go of the altruistic notion that it was a purpose important enough to die for.

No one looks back and says, ‘Wish I had spent more time at the office’.

Single Most Important Tip

Things you can do to prepare for a Mid Life Crisis, before it happens.  Click here to read the article from Everyday Health.

However, here’s the single most important tip you will ever get from anyone about preparing for your midlife crisis or, as I like to say, your mid life celebration.

Focus on Life’s Big four:

MIND

BODY

SPIRIT

MONEY

And by focus, I mean proactively, in advance, as best you possibly can. This will keep you ever mindful of that elusive concept called “Balance”.

More on this later, maybe as soon as tomorrow.

Be Afraid to Stop

“Be not afraid of going slowly;  be only afraid of standing still”. Chinese Proverb

I just wrote a blog post at jeff noel.com about this very subject.  About wondering if now is the right time, if the current approach is the right approach.

This type of potential self-doubt and potential fear, can sabatoge us from breaking through to something we can be great at.  And something we should be great at.  It’s just that we are late bloomers and are playing catch up.

This time delay – from creating a compelling vision – to it actually materializing, takes way longer than most people can comprehend.  This is why people give up and stop,

So, be not afraid of going slow.   Be afraid of stopping.
