Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Forgetting How To Dream

Posted on March 1, 2013 at 10:08am 1 Comment

Schooling beyond 6th grade is entirely useless.

I didn’t say education. I said “schooling.”

It’s like Men In Black. Stare at the neuralyzer (you know, the flashy thing), and forget everything about yourself. Turn in your dreams. Blend in. And grow up.

Beyond elementary school, dreaming is against the rules. Don’t skip the directions. Don’t question authority. Stay inside the lines.

And most people spend their entire lives following directions. They do what they’re…

Integrity: The state of being whole or undivided. This is counter-intuitive, but I can serve others best and be a man of integrity by serving myself first. New blog post...

Me First

I’m sick of stuff. I’m tired of clutter and noise and distraction. So today I've decided I’m no longer going to live a fragmented life.

Some rules I’m going to try to live by……

Welcome Mike!

I try to take time each week to welcome new members to 48Days.Net. So, let me say "welcome" to you! I know you will find this to be a great site filled with people who are experiencing true success in both life and work.

Also, I'd like to point out that one of the best places to connect with other liked-minded people here is in the GROUPS section. There are groups for just about every interest you can think of, and if you can't find a group that interests you, you can start one. Groups are my favorite part of 48Days.Net!

Finally, if you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out these two groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place:

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Again, enjoy 48Days.Net. It's a great place to be!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian
