Wrong Is Easier

Doing it wrong is easier than doing it right.  You can screw it up by doing it wrong.

And doing it wrong, is as easy as doing nothing.

Ya with me?  Let me say that again.  Doing it wrong is as easy as doing nothing.

Doing nothing is easy.  Maybe that’s why so many do nothing.  Doing it right, is hard work.

The people who do work hard are also tempted to do nothing.  Most don’t believe this, but it’s true.

Take me for example.  Last night I made plans to run five miles this morning.  Instead, I’ve made a few rationalizations so I can do nothing instead.  Actually, I’m very busy this morning.  But not physically.

And so it goes….

jeff noel, from Lane 8, was at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World, in Orlando, Florida.

Here are several jeff noel midlife You Tube videos. They’re a documentary of sorts.

I’m heading to the 2009 Master’s Track & Field World Championships this August, in Lahti, Finland.

This journey to the Master’s Track & Field World Championships began over ten years ago, all because of a bad cholesterol report from a routine annual physical.

Dream Big.  Get There.  Stay There.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

Lane 8, Lane 8, Lane 8.

Never gets old.

Lane 8 never gets old?

Not for me.


Because I’ve come to realize that the way to be great, at anything, is to cultivate, develop, and finally, harness two key factors.

Focus and discipline.

Can you imagine trying to be great without these two?

There’s one other factor that deserves intense consideration – vision.

Steve Prefontaine had a vision – to be the greatest runner in the world, even though people said he was too short, too weak.

Good luck with whatever is important to you. Now you know my secrets.

They’re actually just common sense, but not common practice.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
