i wish there would have been a book like this when i was 21

Disney Institute Business facilitator jeff noel
Except from business workbook.

 

Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit is a short book that helped me make sense of my excuses and my regrets, and helped me prepare for the inevitable second chances that often arrive without warning.

i wish a book exactly like this would have been available when i was 21.

For most of us, where we are now is not who we are.

We have hopes and dreams on the back burner.

Can’t wait to read the book for the 31st time.

Irrefutable always lives up to it’s reputation

Flip flops on Sanibel Island beach
Three years ago this week, a good friend passed away unexpectedly. He was 47, a husband and a dad.

 

Irrefutable always lives up to it’s reputation.

We are all going to die.

Embracing this everyday, to me, makes living like you mean it a more tangible goal.

Wisdom comes from an underrated source

Writers coaches
Maybe 5 years ago, at the end of a presentation Mark did for aspiring writers, i spent $2k on Mark’s “Wealthy Writer’s Wisdom group”. Nothing happened from this. Successful failure.

 

 

So ridiculously simple we run right past it.

And the crazy thing is every one of us has a ton of experience because we’ve all made a ton of mistakes. And let’s not discount the mistakes from not taking action – all those times we hesitated and talked ourselves out of taking action.

Wisdom comes from an underrated source…

Wisdom comes from experience and experience comes from making mistakes.

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

Do something that scares you and eventually you won’t be so scared. This can become a daily habit.

Note: Spending $2k on Mark’s course was a mistake, but only in hindsight. What i got from the decision to act was learning that fact. But i continued to hold on, thinking something would change. It never did. Unsubscribing set me free and gave me peace.

Why blog prolifically?

Disney Leadership Keynote Speaker
Two days ago. Slay your dragon(s).

 

Why blog prolifically?

The palest ink is better than the best memory. – Chinese Proverb

Over time, the trail of posts reveals the best memory.

Life is hard.

When our son reaches this conclusion, may he find solace in getting daily glimpses into how a life can be redesigned.

And secondly, it is no longer possible for me to begin a single day without the amplified gratitude that comes from two hours of daily self-reflection.

The best way to succeed

Glacier National Park
Know what inspires you and build it into your life.

 

The best way to succeed in this world is to act on the advice you give to others.
– Unknown

Responsibility is the price for freedom.

  • Don’t quit your day job
  • Being better, different, or both is the only way
  • It’s easier to be different than it is to be better
  • Find and exploit your unique selling proposition
  • Publish your first book
  • Become a category of one
  • Charge a premium for your art

This is tip of the iceberg advice.
