The Truth Hurts

Where Have You Been jeff noel?

It's been a very busy, very rewarding, year.

Where have you been jeff noel?

Where have I been?

Busy.

Busy working a real job.

Busy traveling.

Busy being a Dad.

Busy keeping up with things that come with having a mortgage and a Family.

Busy walking our Dog.

Busy praying.

Busy thinking, and exercising.

Busy reading.

And of course, busy writing.

I write five daily, differently-themed blogs. Every morning. Rain or shine. At home or on the road.

Whether I feel like it or not.

This blog, Leadership Is Like Training A Puppy, has been on the back burner, simmering, while the main course has been setting prolific blogging records at Mid Life Celebration, LLC.

Happy New Year’s eve! Let’s blow the roof off 2012!

Yeah Sounds Crazy

A Writer’s Whole Experience Is Writing

In the animal kingdom, there are instincts that need no schooling or formal training. The very act of being alive is the training. I write for you, to encourage you to not let go of your biggest childhood dream(s). As a writer, everything I see, and everywhere I go provides the potential for content that will help you dig a little deeper in your commitment to…”Live, before you die”.

If you’re reading this, one has to wonder what led you here. And even more intriguing, one has to wonder where did this Blog name come from and what does jeff noel hope to accomplish?

The blog name (and goal) was inspired by the alignment of a dusted-off childhood dream and an undiscovered passion for two things:

  1. To be self-employed
  2. To be a best-selling author

Maybe you’re a writer, maybe you’re simply curious. Maybe you already follow the five daily, differently-themed blogs I’ve written for 730 straight days.

We talk about passion, observe it in others, and wonder if we have it. Fact is, we all have passion. It’s part of our human condition. What we lose is belief in ourselves.

I’ve always wanted to help people, going back to (1972) Mr. Warner’s 8th-grade gym class in Spring Grove, Pennsylvania (yes, it’s as small as it sounds). This is what I’d call a childhood dream. Similar, but different, from you’re own.

Approaching age-related milestones, we pause, reflect, and hope for something better.

And so our whole life provides experience to be used in writing. Everything done, thought, seen, felt, experienced, everywhere we travel, everything we consume, enjoy, worry about – it’s all part of a writer’s experience.

This never became clear until a line was drawn in the sand, “I’m going to be a best-selling author, speaker, and small business entrepreneur”.

The one thing you will find in my writing is that you can observe real life in real time – my story is similar to yours. The only advice you’ll find here is that we must decide for ourselves what we want and how we’ll get it. If we wait for someone to hand us a map, we’ll never get anywhere.
