Few people are ever famous before they become famous

Few people are ever famous before they become famous.

When a famous person starts out, they aren’t famous.

Safe to say that the overwhelming majority of famous people never intended to be.

Mostly, the famous person was just some person who was looking for work.

Rent, food, clothes. The basics.

But something happens on their journey.

If we could only bottle it and sell it.

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.

This website is about our career health. To leave this site to read today’s post on my home health website, click here.

Being Brave Means Learning To Let Go Of Things, And People, You Can’t Change

Yeah, smoking is bad. But I'm not going to convince you to stop. You must do this yourself.

There are things and people we can not and should not change. And there are things and people we should. Wish there was an easy way to tell the difference.

PS. Disagree, agree, or share a personal story?

jeff noel Claims Leadership Is Like Training A Puppy

That’s my boy…

He’s in training, a quick learner with lots of initiative and very little fear…

A real go getter…

Says jeff noel, people can be trained the same way Dogs can be trained. But most people are not good Dog trainers. And therefore, are missing the fundamentals to be a great leader.

The difference between a manager and a leader is in the definition. The difference between a manager and a leader is in their behaviors, and the clarity of their thinking.

Orlando’s jungle jeff Air Tran WOW!

Orlando’s jungle jeff is still talking about his Air Tran experience.

OK, this is the final Air Tran installment – two more jeff noel You Tube videos.

This is all my eight-year old son’s fault.   When he was born, I shelved our 35mm SLR camera with the wide-angle and telephoto lens, and bought a Sony digital camera – the smallest, pocket-style one they made.  I currently have the Sony T-70.  It’s always in my pocket.  Always!

The best way to get people enthusiastic is to be enthusiastic.

Don’t believe it.  Try getting people to be enthusiastic about something important, using a sincere lack of enthusiasm.  Ya with me?

So here are Air Tran You Tube videos – parts two and three:

So what does all this mean?

At the end of the second video (part three), you hear me say, “Are you trying to get better everyday?  I know Air Tran is”?

Are the people around you committed to getting better?  I bet they are.

But if they’re not, take a look in the mirror.  Do you see a mountain of enthusiasm?

Best wishes for continued success.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂

PS.  While everyone is working desperately hard to survive these turbulent economic times, there is also an invisible opportunity in our midst.  I’ll write more about it later.
