Self-reflection is like bathing

Self-reflection is like bathing.

i feel better about myself if i do it everyday.




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.

Common Sense, Not Common

The self discipline of daily, monotonous life

Like this Magic Mouse, life has five basic functions – think, move, feel, work, dwell.


The self discipline of daily, monotonous life.

It’s all we have.

If we don’t master it, it’s still all we have.

What makes you qualified?

Bought a week ago, opened the box yesterday. Still haven’t turned it on.


What makes you qualified?

For starters, i do all the stuff i preach about.

Self-confidence and arrogance often look like twins.

And so it goes.

Another in a long list of challenges that are ripe with excuses for backing down.

Book Publishing

We all have our biased opinions

Donations will come from speaking revenue, not from book revenue.


We all have our biased opinions. What is exceptionally intriguing is how and when we take action based on our opinions.

Anyone can form an opinion and secretly think it’s brilliant.

But will it work in the real world?

Wanted to reduce the Kindle price to between one and two dollars – the price of an App. Even contemplated offering it for free. Xulon Press, the Publisher, can go no lower than $4.99. So that’s what we agreed on.

It took one day to change that price.

Have been quietly and secretly working on reducing the Amazon price for the paperback version of Mid Life Celebration. Aimed for seven or eight dollars, knowing Amazon further discounts books – bringing the purchase price near five dollars.

But $10.99 is the lowest Xulon will go. It took weeks to get this answer and then weeks to have it go live.

Live is in six days, on April 4, 2015. See for yourself, here.

Opinions mean nothing without action.
