Wisdom is…

Walt Disney quote
Walking to the High School Gym for the basketball game last night.


Wisdom is understanding that pleasure doesn’t bring lasting joy, contribution does.

And the only (impossible?) way to make this happen is to practice what you preach.

And the mandatory (impossible?) way to master this is to only preach what you practice.

Your contribution starts with helping yourself first.


Don’t promise, only do.





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.

This website is about our spiritual health. To leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s career health website, click here.
