In a hurry

The Loop trail Glacier National Park
It’s a long way from the road to Granite Park Chalet. From Granite, it’s a short-cut to many other places, since you wake up at 6,600′.

The rush to get things done taxes our attitude.

Sure, short cuts save time, money, conserve resources, and allow us to rush to the next list of things we need to do quickly.

When we rush, and constantly operate with a short-cut mindset, we may win short-term, but our victories long-term may never materialize.

So glad you know this and live with the long way is the short-cut mindset.

How’s our positive mental attitude regarding our physical well being?

Each day is just another day in paradise, right?


The key to thriving is to never tire from the daily grind. Wishing the 20-something fellow gym regular a happy new year yesterday i asked, “What’s your 2016 resolution?”

He said, unhesitatingly, “To maintain where I’m at.”

i congratulated him on understanding that maintaining our health for a lifetime is the real goal.

Who cares if you run your first 5k or your first marathon, if your drive and determination evaporate after achieving that short-term (yet lofty and noble) goal?

Can’t help but wonder, today, the sixth day of the new year, how many will succumb to the self-fulfilling prophecy of short-term, feel-good, accomplishment. The prophecy being that once the initial, lofty and noble goal is accomplished, we fail to accept that we are actually only at the starting line of the real (even more lofty and more noble) goal.




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.
