jeff noel, prolific blogger, aims For Excellence

Midlife Celebration’s jeff noel has never felt more desire to write differently. His passion to simply write, same as it was April 1, 2009 – the day the 100-day writing challenge began. What’s different now is that an incredible foundation, 4,500+ (prolific) blog posts, has relieved the urgency of leaving a foundational trail for his son (11).

Seriously, I Thought To Myself, Dude You Just Have To Dive In And Go

Well, saying it's too expensive is no longer an excuse, eh?

The other day we were talking about what we’d do if we won the lottery. Cheryl reminded our son that I always said I’d take more risks.

Diving in and going was a huge risk. Letting go of some old leadership paradigms another. And then there was this notion of uber transparancy posting five daily blogs for years on end.
