Getting Things Done and Whoo Hoo!

What does personal productivity and the band Blur have in common?

"I got my head checked
By a jumbo jet
It wasn't easy
But nothing is

Everyday something big and scary is coming at us, often as a surprise. When they come and we are unprepared, it's like getting checked in Hockey but with a Jumbo jet.

It's inevitable that we experience these situations but constant preparation makes the impact less devastating.

  • Having your desk organized
  • Resources ready for action
  • Review Calendar events
  • Reviewed tasks due
  • Cleaning up your workspace
When you've prepared, you can sing the song, "Whoo Hoo" and avoid the stress.

Cars powered by the Sun

The future is bright for using the power of the sun to move people around. This week I began my journey as a brand ambassador for Aptera. My goal is to help rural areas experience EV cars for work and play in Michigan's four seasons.    

I Faced Death Today

Today is my cat's last day. He has an incurable condition that will eventually lead him to suffocation or heart attack. We are removing the possibility of suffering by putting him down. There isn't a more uncomfortable task we have in life than to face death. Especially when it is someone we love. We don't like to think of our own death either. Most lack a living will, money to cover burial expenses. not to mention leaving a legacy or lasting value behind. Avoiding death is the same thing as negligence. It's a failure to embrace the inevitable. We are celebrating Toby's life today but that's not enough to ease our crying eyes and sobs. We need to consider our own passing. Now. Have you planned your end? Are you now prepared? What is your legacy?

Do You Face the Future?

I believe that people by nature are "future facing". This simply means that we look forward to the future, wonder what it'll be like, how we will live, and what will be different.  When we're not future facing, that should warn us of a problem. It means that we have to run the diagnostics on our life to see what's wrong and get help if we need it.
