Lest we not forget Memorial Day.

Hate the wars, love the warriors.

All of them.

Those living without permanent injuries.

Those living with permanent and crippling injuries.

And those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

Lest we not forget that freedom is never free, and, all it takes for evil to flourish is for good men and women to do nothing.

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.

This Easter morning final preparations for an eight day tip to Disneyland.

Working while others play is a way of life for many.

Some go their entire career never having weekends as predictable days off.

Doing meaningful work changes our expectations about what is normal or fair.

More than anything, getting to do what you love is more than fair.
