Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

9 years, 11 months, and 30 days so far

It’s been nine years, 11 months, and 30 days so far.

What?

Tomorrow, March 31, 2019, i finish a decade-long prolific blogging effort. On April Fools Day 2009, i started what was destined to fail: a 100-day, self-imposed writer’s boot camp to write five daily, differently-themed blog posts on five individual websites.

Not only did it not fail, but it hasn’t stopped for a single day, for a decade.

How is this even possible?

It all ends in 12 days

Orlando motivational Speaker
Imagine this being true for you.

It all ends in 12 days.

This is sick.

A decade.

Never missing a single day.

Not one.

It all ends in 12 days.

And then year 11 begins.

Sick.

Happy first day of High School senior year

Disney Keynote Speaker
Yesterday on Twitter, a former Disney Institute leader who taught me about facilitation (vs presentation).

 

Happy first day of High School senior year.

Positive thinking isn’t taught in schools.

It’s something you learn from other places.

Frequent those places.

Be greedy.

Let your life be your report card.

Happy 47th birthday WDW

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
There’s a process for these photos. This was the first picture at this location. Chose the Incredibles because Incredibles II just released a few weeks ago.

 

Walt Disney was trapped at Disneyland.

He never saw it coming.

One-hundred and sixty acres was 10 times bigger than the original “spare” land he had at his Studio.

The city council never approved his request to rezone those 16 acres.

They didn’t want a year-round carnival in their city.

Walt saw it as a blessing because his ideas continued to expand well beyond anything 16 acres could hold.

So 160 acres….oh my gosh…plenty of land.

Boy was he wrong.

After Disneyland opened in 1955, and as Walt kept dreaming, he told his inner circle to secretly buy up as much swampland near Orlando as they possibly could.

Why did jeff noel pick April Fools Day to start?

Midlife Celebration
Photo: from 2011. First blog posts are from 2008. Daily writing began April 1, 2009.

 

April Fools Day is the day many people play practical jokes.

So what April Fools Day practical joke did jeff noel play on this date in 2009?

None.

The impossible goal of writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts for 100 consecutive days was not a joke.

Knowing i wanted to write my first book coupled with the 2008-09 economic tsunami – it was a perfect catalyst to gain writing practice.

But i thought i was a fool to believe in such a ridiculously ambitious goal.
