At what age will you die?
How many times have you asked yourself that question?
I am sure it has crossed all our minds but have we thought about when will we leave this earth?
If we dig a bit deeper, we don’t really ever know if we’ve reached midlife.
When do you think you’ve hit midlife?
What do you expect to happen?
On my flight back from one of the best conferences I have attended (Rainmaker Authority 2015), I finished reading Mid Life Celebration written by my new friend and author, Jeff Noel.
I connected with Jeff the first night of the event and then continued to chat with him throughout the conference. In a short period of time, I realized that Jeff is a disciplined and well balanced person.
Jeff also worked for Disney and I chatted with him on how Walt Disney’s legacy was one of the catalyst of me becoming an entrepreneur. I also mentioned how reading Neal Gabler’s Walt biography, made me realize that I was unemployable and had to try things on my own.
During my conversations with Jeff, we both shared a lot of appreciation and love for our kids.
On the last night of the conference Jeff handed me his book as a gift. I promised to read it and on my first leg back to San Juan, I was able to read the book.
The Three R’s
The book puts emphasis on the three R’s. It made me realize why I quickly connected with Jeff on many levels. You can tie most of our conversations throughout the conference to the three R’s.
Rethink, Reprioritize, and Recommit goes right in line with my friend Robbie Vorhaus “One Less, One More”. The book also reminded me of Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Fields Millburn’s guide to minimalism. Like the Minimalists, Jeff also gives you a practical framework on living life and making the best of it right now.
Mind, Money, Spirit, Body, and HQ
Jeff’s secret recipe of Mind, Money, Spirit, Body, HQ is one that can help us keep track on what is next in our lives and how we need to approach it.
As I continue to seek what is next in life and how I am going to get things completed or done, I realize that there is much for us to do.
A Gift from Jeff
Jeff gave me his book and it has served as inspiration and motivation to go search what I need to do next and what is actually missing in my life.
If you are looking for a complete guide on how to revamp your life and start taking action right now, buy and read Mid Life Celebration.
My thanks to Jeff for sharing his book with me; I can confirm he wrote this book with lots of love.
Are You Ready for a Midlife Celebration
So when are you hitting midlife? My advice is that everyday get closer to living your dreams. Don’t wait on turning a certain age to start living life.
Buy the Book
I highly recommend you buying this book. It is a quick read that will help you refocus on what you might have thought were your priorities.
