Two pods in a pea

Jody Maberry and jeff noel at Disney
We moved side by side so we could see the same notes.

Two pods in a pea.

Of course it’s backwards.

There’s no obligation on me to say it the way everyone knows it.

A variation of freedoms that is fun to experience.

Son, i’ve earned the privilege to write what i want, when i want, and in the style i want.

How and why?

By writing every day for over a decade. By not having social share buttons nor an email subscription option – my writing is under no obligation to meet any expectation.

Son, freedom takes many forms. “Writing freedom” is a favorite.

Lesson learned (the hard way)

Lesson learned (the hard way).

No longer going to pay people in advance. It’s been my experience during the past 18 months that humans, in general, do not have the self-discipline to stay hungry after they’ve been fed.

Zero regrets.

In fact, i celebrate discovering what i hoped i wouldn’t discover.

i actually had faith being fed in advance would inspire a deeper hunger.

My experience shows it only happens as an anomaly.




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.

Playing around with your LinkedIn profile is good for you

Lethbridge Bridge
This bridge is the largest railway structure in Canada and the largest of its type in the world.


Over the years, do we experiment with our bio, our resume?

Should we?

Why wouldn’t we?

But do we?

. . . . .

The original post written 100 days ago included a LinkedIn profile rough draft, and was too long, too self-centered.

This post was re-written last night, March 12, and the photo was from the day before that.

Why is this important?

Simply this, life is a process.

A process of continuous improvement.

So excited to see May 1, 2012. Are you diggin’ the prospect of a new month? How cool is this? A new set of 31 days. A new opportunity to keep moving forward.

So much stuff comes at us it can be overwhelming. Right? It’s challenging to slow down to check our progress or lack thereof. I’m so ready for brave new changes. So ready.

Being Brave Means Being Willing To Keep Experimenting With Increasing Better Ways To Write, Or Whatever

Nearly 30 years old...never heard of Jimmy Johns. Now there's one in Orlando.

Being a successful human being, as Baby Boomers well know, requires a continuous improvement approach to life. The real challenge is to know when we have landed on perfection and when we still have a long way to go. The only way to know is by trial and error. Never get bored with the basics, like experimentation. How do you know when to push and when to hold?
