What possesses you to write every day?

Every dang day i write five differently-themed blog posts.

The unanswered question is, “Why?”

Why start?

Why continue?

Every single day since April Fools Day 2009.

Seven-plus years.

Thirteen thousand plus blog posts.

No end in sight.

Impossible is nothing.

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.

Grateful for the God-given gift of determination

Disney University interior hall
Yesterday at lunch, fairly random photo at Disney University. i take solace knowing Walt Disney was a determined fella. So was Jesus.

 

Told our Son (15) the other day when we were talking about talent, i reminded him that i don’t believe i have talent, i believe that i have determination. Determination to do what i say i’m gonna do. In the end, talent cannot trump determination; not in the long run.

i go through cycles where i can’t comprehend what’s happening and other times i just write without thinking too much about the frequency and duration.

But when i do hone in on the reality of the frequency and duration, it absolutely boggles my mind.

Five daily, differently-themed blogs – was determined to do it 100 consecutive days beginning April Fools Day 2009.

Somehow the determination to see how many days in a row, without missing a single day, has morphed into nearly seven years worth.

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.

The Curse Of Consistency Is That Boomers Can Become Numb To The Omnipotence

Only A Dummy Would Continue To Go Through Life Without Fixing This

Boomers, we are what we repeatedly do. The challenge with developing omnipotent habits is to never loose the original intent. We learn by doing things over and over until we can do the habit in our sleep. Some of our habits were never meant to become habits.

While repetition is the mother of all learning, repetition is also a leading cause of our blind spots. PS. This is post 4,998, to read post 4,999 please click Next Blog

Baby Boomers Were Taught That Repetition Is The Mother Of All Learning

Jack the Bear travels everywhere jeff noel goes - a habit with a purpose

Habits are what Boomers think and do, without thinking. Repetition is a habit’s energy source. Our choices are the fertilizer that determines if the habits become good or bad.
