The power in quitting the waiting game

Orlando based keynote speakers
LAX Airport would look like this if employees quit working. Seems obvious.


What if i had not begun running one mailbox a day for a week back in April 1999?

Where would my health be today?




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 physical health. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s spiritual health website, click here.


Wait, don’t tell me

Yesterday, September 11, a Friday.


If people knew how hard i worked to live vibrantly, they wouldn’t think is was so magical after all.

The time is going to pass whether we exercise or not.

Why not exercise?

The last day we exercise is the healthiest we will ever be for the rest of our lives.

Are you comfortable with being unwilling?

Consistent exercise, decent nutrition, and adequate rest is the only way to vibrant health.

Are you comfortable with being unwilling to make it happen?

Most of us aren’t.

Yet we do it anyway (the unwilling part) when we commit to doing nothing.

How healthy is that?

Biggest physical wellness April Fool ever?

Map My Run #RunDisney
Running through Disney University’s lobby for water never gets old.


Map My Run #RunDisney
This was mile# 5 of a 10-miler yesterday.


The foolish part of dreaming big is allowing the magnitude of impossibility to frighten us and justify our rational excuses to quit.

There should be no quitting a good and noble physical wellness goal. Quitting is the joke. And it’s not funny. At all.

One day our dream seems crushed, the next it feels like victory.

But only if we do not quit.

No foot pain during (or after) yesterday’s 10-miler to Magic Kingdom.

This is huge because defeat and frustration were really strong this time.

Was High School Gym class the last time we exercised?

Biking near Walt Disney World
A rather boring photo from a 20-minute bike ride near Disney yesterday.


Everything a writer writes filters through three questions:

  1. Is this too much?
  2. Is this safe perfect?
  3. Is this too little?

So when was the last time you exercised?

Heck, the people who need to read this aren’t reading these posts anymore.

For the rest of us, these posts help prevent us from becoming them.
