Break the Internet?

Orlando Diocese Men's Rise Up conference
There are very few overnight successes.

 

Word for word, copied and pasted from yesterday’s Seth Godin blog post.

Change, real change, is the result of focused persistence.

It’s easy to get a bunch of people sort of excited for a little while.

The challenging part, and the reason that change doesn’t happen as often as it should is that we get distracted. Today’s urgent is more urgent than yesterday’s important.

The concept of breaking news and the crisis of the day proves my point. If the world ended every time Wolf Blitzer implied it would, we would have been toast a long time ago. The organizations that actually change things are the ones that have a time horizon that’s longer than 36 hours.

There are very few overnight successes. Very few entrepreneurs, freelancers, non-profits, candidates, spiritual leaders, activists or people in a successful relationship that got there with thunder and lighting. It happens with a drip.

PS this post is intentionally disfigured in honor of Break the Internet. I’m annoyed that we have to continually fight this fight, but it just proves my point. Drip by drip.

Keep showing up. If it matters, keep showing up.

(Ok, this is the end of Seth’s post. Below the page break, my post.)

Ok, here’s my contribution to jeffnoel.org today…

The long way is the short cut.

Stop looking for quick fixes or to hire someone to do your most important work.

Walt Disney and Steve Jobs did not appoint someone to create their legendary organizational culture.

You get where this just went, right?

Stuff We Do

Is jeff noel An Egotistical Jerkasaurus?

Nothing greater or more important than being a great parent (or relative if we have no kids)

Some Mid Life Celebration blog readers get it (and stay) and some don’t (and leave). It was the same for Jesus too. But no matter. Boomers, if we let what other people think stop us from doing what’s on our faithful heart, no great and important things would ever get done.

Dear Son

Dear Son, This Is How It Works

Dear Son, life is pretty straight forward. It will be hard, fun, exciting, tempting, fulfilling, heavy, and if we’re lucky, long.

You will work most of you life. In ‘the old days’, most people got a job with a company that took care of them – regular work for regular pay, benefits, opportunity, etc.

The world you’re headed to is one in which old paradigms are being rewritten or crushed.

Pray for guidance as you move through your ‘career’ and support yourself (at first) and then your Family. The earlier you learn and embrace an entrepreneurial spirit, the sooner you’ll have a plan B.

Coincidence Perhaps?

Corner Stone
Corner Stone

Perhaps, all our “good fortune” can be summed up by his quote I found, tucked away in a folder from 2004.

“Coincidence is a small miracle which God wishes to remain anonymous.” — unknown

Ya with me?

PS. Assertiveness is a trait. Arrogance a burden.
