Research is free & easy

You can find out some interesting stuff in minutes. By interesting, think revealing and cool, or perhaps, questionable.

Research is free & easy.

Want to know something specific about someone?

Start with Google.

Then, in Florida, search or the property appraisers website. Or check a real estate website like Zillow.

Our bi-annual Homeowner’s Association (HOA) meeting is coming up. It will likely be a tense, dysfunctional mess.

A few neighbors demonstrate behaviors that no one can unsee nor unhear.

Basic homeowner tip: do not draw attention to yourself because attention-getting behavior violates, or probably violates, Orange County Code and or Florida State laws.

Fear of retaliation drives silence.

A basic phenomenon, next door neighbors won’t say anything to their next door neighbor, even though they see and hear the behavior daily.

Each resident is empowered to use the tools (Zoning Codes Enforcement, State laws and statutes) to manage their residential expectations and experience.

Occasionally, the deeper you explore the internet, the more you find. It can be alarming.

Break the Internet?

Orlando Diocese Men's Rise Up conference
There are very few overnight successes.


Word for word, copied and pasted from yesterday’s Seth Godin blog post.

Change, real change, is the result of focused persistence.

It’s easy to get a bunch of people sort of excited for a little while.

The challenging part, and the reason that change doesn’t happen as often as it should is that we get distracted. Today’s urgent is more urgent than yesterday’s important.

The concept of breaking news and the crisis of the day proves my point. If the world ended every time Wolf Blitzer implied it would, we would have been toast a long time ago. The organizations that actually change things are the ones that have a time horizon that’s longer than 36 hours.

There are very few overnight successes. Very few entrepreneurs, freelancers, non-profits, candidates, spiritual leaders, activists or people in a successful relationship that got there with thunder and lighting. It happens with a drip.

PS this post is intentionally disfigured in honor of Break the Internet. I’m annoyed that we have to continually fight this fight, but it just proves my point. Drip by drip.

Keep showing up. If it matters, keep showing up.

(Ok, this is the end of Seth’s post. Below the page break, my post.)

Ok, here’s my contribution to today…

The long way is the short cut.

Stop looking for quick fixes or to hire someone to do your most important work.

Walt Disney and Steve Jobs did not appoint someone to create their legendary organizational culture.

You get where this just went, right?

Is jeff noel An Egotistical Jerkasaurus?

Nothing greater or more important than being a great parent (or relative if we have no kids)

Some Mid Life Celebration blog readers get it (and stay) and some don’t (and leave). It was the same for Jesus too. But no matter. Boomers, if we let what other people think stop us from doing what’s on our faithful heart, no great and important things would ever get done.

Dear Son, This Is How It Works

Dear Son, life is pretty straight forward. It will be hard, fun, exciting, tempting, fulfilling, heavy, and if we’re lucky, long.

You will work most of you life. In ‘the old days’, most people got a job with a company that took care of them – regular work for regular pay, benefits, opportunity, etc.

The world you’re headed to is one in which old paradigms are being rewritten or crushed.

Pray for guidance as you move through your ‘career’ and support yourself (at first) and then your Family. The earlier you learn and embrace an entrepreneurial spirit, the sooner you’ll have a plan B.
