Self Control. Surrender. Service.

Self-Control. Surrender. Service.

Looks good on paper, but what does it really mean?

Self control is about focus and discipline. Stay focused on what’s really important. Discipline yourself to not get distracted or tempted.

Surrender is about letting go of your plan and following a bigger plan. This requires quiet and solitude, in order to have a two-way conversation with God. We often speak to God, but rarely wait and listen for the answer.

Service is about serving others before serving self. This is a tricky one. When the oxygen mask falls from the airplane cabin ceiling, who puts their mask on first, you or the child?

It’s a distinct privilege to write here every day. The vision i to serve you. To stimulate your thinking. To challenge my own convictions, as well as yours.

I surrender to what happens after you visit this site. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂

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?

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 Celebration.com – Rethink. Reprioritize. Recommit.

Lane 8.org – Dream Big. Get There. Stay There.

jeff noel.com – Do Something Great.

jungle jeff.net – Daily Reflections On Excellence.

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 🙂
