Facebook thread today said, “You get what you give”.

In business and in life, you get what you give.  We all know this yet sometimes we forget.

One of the reasons we forget is that as humans we are easily distracted, because we are so busy doing all the things humans do.

And occasionally, like now, we get on with surviving an economic tsunami.

Meanwhile, life passes by.  I take solace in the fact that for 35 years, I have never faltered from trying to make my professional contribution exceptional.

Even if people are too busy too notice.

This Blog Is For My Son

This blog is for my son. Since it’s inception, it has always been for my son.  Period.

People who know me well, are crystal clear that I do things purposefully.

And when it looks like the path I’m walking is leading away from where we’re headed, it’s only because heading away is the best path at the moment.

jungle jeff’s focus has always been on what I call the money quadrant.

Money is one of life’s big choices.  There are only four big life choices.

More tomorrow.  Meanwhile, carpe diem, jungle jeff :)

Do Daily Feats of Courage

Why daily?  “Seriously, you mean this doesn’t make immediate sense to you”?

Commonly known as a habit, doing something over and over eventually makes it routine.  You knew that right?

So did I.  And yet, the temptation, subconscious and conscious, to forget this fact is astronomical.

Which brings us back to doing daily feats of courage.  “Yeah, jungle jeff, but do you practice what you preach”?

What I did yesterday consumed nearly the entire day.

I invested that time in pursuit of excellence and peace of mind.  But it took courage. And I had a lot of it yesterday.

Huh? Exactly.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

Morons Beware

Morons beware. I don’t use moron in my vocabulary, because it sounds derogatory. However, using it in a blog title is catchy and gutsy. In business, who doesn’t like that combination?

“The death of education and the dawn of learning”. (can you identify the “morons”?):

Bob Dylan said it best, “He who’s not busy being born, is busy dying”.

Betting nine out of ten will not watch this video. Nine out of ten don’t exercise either.  Nine out of ten spend more than they earn.

Not judging. Just stating simple probability. Only the mediocre are at their best all the time.

If not today, when. The clock is ticking. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

PS. There were no morons in the video.

You’ll Never Come Up With Anything Original

Ok, just know this up front, this video is 19 minutes.  And I guarantee if you are smart enough to watch it, you will thank me for finding it.

Stick your head in the sand? Ok, sounds good.  Later.

Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
