Midlife crisis could be in our DNA say some scientists

Midlife crisis
Midlife crisis may be in our DNA says scientists

Is a midlife crisis in our DNA? This story says some scientists believe it could be true, after studying chimps and orangutans.

Years ago, jeff noel founded Mid Life Celebration to address what he believes is an under rated, and very real, rite of passage – from selfishness to selflessness.

It takes decades (usually) to reach, and often goes undetected or ignored. Yet it is as real as our DNA.

Like Many People, jeff noel Loves Quotes, But Uses Them Sparingly

St Augustine, Florida lighthouse shadow, May 26, 2011. Our character is a directional beacon (or not).

Who doesn’t love quotes. But what jeff noel has discerned is eventually we ought to start saying what we believe, in our own words. It forces us to understand the quote even more. Here’s one worth sharing:

Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

My version of Emerson’s quote: When our children start looking for the face of God in the real world, they shouldn’t have to look farther than across the dinner table.

People Think Twitter Is An Amazing Marketing Tool

Yesterday, listening to a 20-something (I think) share advice on Small Business Marketing, she said Twitter is great because so many people can instantly get your message. (smile/grin)

But most don’t do any of it.

But Aimee Mullins gets it. jeff noel gets it. The two collided 15 minutes ago. This TED video could spark something great for us today… “How my legs give me super powers”:

Sound Bite New Year’s Eve

Heard a story on NPR about youth and technology; a 4 year old picked up a regular, hard copy picture…touched it and tried to enlarge view. The youth of today expect this technology to be everywhere…it is a part of their lives.

They don’t even call it “technology”. It just is. Like air.

Strange, Isn’t It?

Was There Ever Any Doubt?
Was There Ever Any Doubt?

Maybe it’s a special sign, for special people. You know, the ones that have a hard time understanding all the complexities of No.

The good news? And there is some. At least the sign isn’t brown.
