The promiscuousness of choice.

Tempting to not take the time, effort, and risk to decide for ourselves – out of all the noise – what our simple and guiding principles will be for our mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

At some point, we really should decide.

Growing up, it would have been great to have had a wise elder convince me of this through their own example.

Instead, becoming a Father in 2000, in my early 40’s, was the catalyst for personal transformation.

Given the chance we almost always avoid it

Metaphorically speaking, you need to want change as much as you want your next breath.


Given the chance to avoid change, we’ll likely take it.

Given the chance, we’ll interpret our opportunity to change as too difficult, too time consuming, too disruptive, and too painful.

Given the chance, we’d rather talk about how miserable uncomfortable we are than do anything that will change our circumstances.




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.
