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.
