Five A Day Blogger Explosion

To Serve, To Strive, and not To Yield
To Serve, To Strive, and not To Yield

In March 2009, just ten short months ago, I made a promise – a 100-day challenge.

Have you ever made important promises, big promises, promises that you could almost taste the life-changing benefits?

Some call it dreaming big dreams.  Walt Disney, one of my heroes, was like that. But Walt Disney also had something different.

He had drive. And Walt Disney did what he set out to do. And Walt turned a deaf ear to the multitudes who called him crazy.

Walt Disney did things others said were impossible. When I set out to write five daily blogs for 100 days, not even I could imagine what it’s turned into.

Here we are, not 50 blog posts later, not 100, not 500 blog posts later, not 1,000 either, but over 1,500 blog posts – in ten short months.

It is quite literally a Five-A-Day Blogger explosion.

PS.  Who would you rather listen to:

  1. A big-time dreamer?
  2. A big-time dreamer and a big-time doer?

Audacious, antagonistic, insightful, servant.

  1. Jeff,

    We are definitely a results-oriented people. The common phrases are tell-tale signs:

    “Talk is cheap!”
    “Put your money where your mouth is!”
    “Seeing is believing.”
    “The proof is in the pudding.”

    People like to hear dreams…they want to take hold of a vision (like Proverbs 29:18a says: “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”). But people also want to see that the vision has been followed through to the end. A major source of frustration is when people set goals or have a vision and then get so totally caught up in one of two things: 1) talking about the vision without any plan to reach it, or 2) getting so busy doing the “things” of the vision that the “things” take on more of a priority than the vision.

    So dreaming AND doing need to be there!


  2. Bob, you’re absolutely correct. Talk is cheap.
    The spirit is willing but the body is weak.
    Last year, having the epiphany that no man on my Dad’s side of the family lived past 60 lit a fire in my soul.
    Whatever it takes…
    PS. Thank you neighbor, as always, for being part of this community.
