Those adults and their devices

Wild Goose Island
Arrival day for Glacier 2018 trip 5.

 

Wild Goose Island
All i did in this photo was smile a little wider and raise the eyebrows enough to crease the forehead. Same people, same location, different energy. Our attitude and thinking can be slightly tweaked too – with similarly and remarkably different energy.

 

Family room.

TV.

Or…

Restaurant with sports bar.

Big screen TVs.

The other night at The Big Easy i scanned the restaurant and island bar.

Nothing but older (40+) white men at the bar.

All of them staring at their devices – the big screen TVs with Sunday Pro Football games.

Please think twice before negatively stereotyping teens as being sucked up in their devices.

Think of the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s stereotypes of a dad at the breakfast table reading the newspaper while mom cooked breakfast and got the kids ready for their day. The newspaper was the “screen” back then.

When the student is mentally ready

Digital learning (and teaching) gets easier and more significant every year. Photo: iPhone XS screen.

 

When the student is ready the teacher will appear.

Are you ready?

This is classic wisdom:

“You can’t control what happens to you, only how you respond.”

 

My five daily, differently-themed blog posts all carry this wise approach to life.

We think (MidLifeCelebration.com).

We move (Lane8.org).

We feel (JeffNoel.org).

We work (JungleJeff.net).

We dwell (JeffNoel.com).

When, or if, you feel ready, you have thousands (17.5k as of today) of posts to stimulate your learning.

What if…

We had…

(Every morning)…

A…

Mental blank slate?

Who says we don’t?

Go.

Your slate is clean.

Ps. You get to decide every morning if you are gifted to awake (like today) to a new day. It ain’t rocket surgery.

Best sleep that i never got

Belton Chalet
Dinner last night. Sat at the (hidden) table behind the pole.

Will the real 626 please stand up. This reminds me of the three of us on this trip.

 

Best sleep that i never got.

Do you know your sleep number?

The number of nightly sleep hours that allows your day to be vibrant and energetic.

Eight hours a night?

Bullseye.

Didn’t happen this trip.

Not a single night.

Grateful for adrenaline, great company, and stunning surroundings.

Our restaurant was one of them.

Best attitude in 50 years?

Disney Keynote Speakers
Yesterday on the ride back to the cabin.

 

Best attitude in 50 years?

Why not?

Wouldn’t it make sense that our attitude improves steadily year over year?
