Thank you for purchasing, reading, and reviewing Mid Life Celebration

Florida Department of State Division of Corporations
Renewed yesterday, Jan 11. The real MBA comes when you manage your own business administration.


The wait is over. After 46 consecutive five-star reviews, the first non-five star.

Two stars.

Ecstatic to finally get some critical feedback. Seriously. It’s wonderful.

“A very quick read that gets to the heart of mid life. I was a little bothered that the author kept saying ‘you know this.’ All I kept thinking was, then why the heck am I reading this book if I already know it.”

So grateful to the person for investing their money to purchase, investing their time to read and their time to review.

The author could have said in the book, but did’t, that it was written to his young son as a life guide in case something bad ever happened to the dad.

The author (dad) was being intentionally repetitious with the reminder to his son, “You know this.” Yet the dad also is keenly aware of human nature:

To know is to do. To know and not do, is to not yet know.

So grateful. For everything.

Out of the midlife ashes, hope rises

Yesterday morning a social media note:

Good morning! I wanted to tell you that I am re-reading your book. Reading slowly this time. I value it so differently this time. Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Asked a few questions and in reply:

I truly have tears in my eyes right now. I was not in a good place when I read it the first time and I knew you were telling me something but I just wasnt getting it. I was resisting change. I now have the strength to appreciate it. Thriving not survivng. I am so thankful that I knew you because I hear your voice speaking to me when I read it. Stuck on pages 7 and 14!

At the end of the day, the book leans towards being a kick in the ass butt. And we all need that a few times in life.

The 2015 Boomer Performance Review app

Do you have annual performance reviews at work? Or if you’re retired, did you used to?

Do you, or did you, believe they had significant value to how you are/were paid?

Do you, or did you, believe that anyone ever looks at them after you and your leader sign it?

Boomers have ‘been there done that’ on many things and one of the realities we’ve learned is there are many things we do to comply with mass production.

With a positive outlook, Boomers could instead craft their performance review on the Internet.

If you are still a high-achieving professional, Google your name.

Or search your name on Amazon or You Tube.

There’s your grade.

The art of useful information is only for those that treasure balance and wellness

The art of useful information at MLC is only for those who treasure balance and wellness. The manuscript review arrived yesterday. It suggests:

Jeff Noel is a good writer, with a refreshing, much needed message for those who are lost or discouraged in midlife.

It didn’t say jeff is a great writer, nor did it suggest Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit will put a dent in the universe.

What could be delusional for one, is art to another.

Not everyone gets this. I write for those who do and for those considering it.
