What does it take to improve ourselves during midlife?

Book manuscript change order
130 pages, 12k+ words, three small changes…


What does it take to improve ourselves during midlife? And do we care? Are we motivated?

Funny how the smallest of changes can add up to make something good, better. A book manuscript. A life.

It works in the opposite direction too. Small things (even as small as not changing) can make something good, not so good.

Everything that comes our way is one of two things

Summer growth is unstoppable in the sub-tropics of Central Florida


Everything that comes our way is one of two things:

  • an opportunity for growth
  • an opportunity to stunt growth

It’s this simple and it’s this complex.

What would happen to us if our only response, with zero exceptions, was the first?

And who’s in control of trying this and/or maintaining it?

Sort of Not

The whole point of growing is to continuously do this

Growing older is such a blessing, even more so is gaining wisdom


The whole point of growing is to learn. To become better.

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.  -Muhammad Ali

There is no wisdom in immaturity.

Naked Man

“Beware of the naked man who offers you his shirt”.Harvey Mackay

By now, we know that there are many people who make tons of promises. Same with businesses, with marketing, with the Internet, and so on. False promises.

The real question is, to me, “What promises am I making to myself that are false promises?  Promises to be wary of”?

This is one of the main reasons we find ourselves in a mid-life crisis.

We start with good, well-intended promises, but in reality, they were really only false promises:

  • Get healthier
  • Spend more time with Family
  • Learn more
  • Forgive more
  • Save more
  • Be a better example

No one should feel alone reading this.  We all suffer from this.  We’re human. That’s what we do, we fail. Over and over again.

So now, consciously reminded of this, “What are you gonna do about it?  And I mean specifically, what are you gonna do today”?

When I Grow Up

“When I grow up I want to be a little boy”.Joseph Heller

I want to watch the colored leaves fall.

Then help to rake them in a pile.

Then get a running start and jump in them and play in them until it looks like they had never been raked.

Anybody notice the Autumnal equinox yesterday?
