Lane 8 Credentials

Lane 8 credentials.  Yesterday, my friend Chuck came by our house to pick up his son, who spent the night – a “sleep-over”.

Chuck is an amazing man.  Have known Chuck for seven years, since our boys first attended the same child-care facility.  Our kids are like cousins.  Seriously.  They’ve grown up together, even though they now attend different schools.

What amazes me about Chuck is his technical competency. He spends hours each day, exploring what’s out there and figuring out the best way to use the Internet to run his Insurance business.

We can talk for hours about “stuff”.

He asked me yesterday what I did to qualify for the World Championships.

I’ll post that story tomorrow, I hope.

What I will close with this morning is that he inspired me to take a look at my Google Analytics. My website hits are doing exceptionally well.  He asked me, “Do you know why”? I replied, “I use common sense”.

This wasn’t a good answer, but I defended it saying it’s the same with what I’ve accomplished at Lane 8.

These days, common sense isn’t common practice.  But what if it was?

What could you accomplish if you executed common sense everyday, so that you also had “common practice”?

Years ago, I promised myself, I wouldn’t sell myself short.  Ever make a promise like that to yourself?

It’s common sense.  But is it common practice?  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
