Beyond Happiness?

It’s good to be just plain happy; it’s a little better to know that you are happy; but to understand that you’re happy and to know why and how……well that is beyond happiness. That is bliss“. — Henry Miller (1891-1980)

Don’t worry, be happy, and carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Found Happiness yet?

It’s not doing what you like that’s important – it’s liking what you do“. — Eric Butterworth

It took me a long time to understand this. Better late than never, eh? Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Happiness just around the corner?

My opinion is that you never find happiness until you stop looking for it“. — Chuang Tzu

Things that make a person go hmmmm…….

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂



Where’s the humility in posting your name on your blog?

Not sure it has anything to do with humility at this point. It has to do with Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Others call it Search Engine Marketing (SEM).

By any name, it’s really about helping and serving others.


How can you help someone if they don’t know who you are and especially if they don’t know that you would like to help? SEO and SEM help get the word out when people use Google, Yahoo, and other search engines.

This site is one of five, as I experiment with a “retirement” project to step up my efforts to Make the World a Better Place before I die.

Mid Life – Rethink. Reprioritize. Recommit.

Lane – Dream Big. Get There. Stay There.

jeff – Do Something Great.

jungle – Daily Reflections On Excellence.

jeff noel.orgSurrender. Self Control. Service.

Ever get to a point in your life where you say, “I’m going to quit dreaming and start doing”?

I have. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
