All Saints Day (iPad Pro homework video)

Disney Speakers
Last night (in real time) New Years Eve 2018. Happy 2019 this morning.

 

 

Is this my final All Saints Day?

If it is, i’m glad i had 59 of them.

If it isn’t, i’m already • rethinking “homework”.

Supposing the new iPad Pro will be key.

Things I Learned Yesterday

Mini epiphany with Apple snafu

Ted Talk on habits
A simple way to break a bad habit – habits include the insecurity we carry with us.

 

 

You can imagine all the Apple haters grabbing their megaphones and shouting, “See, Apple is bad.”

To which i say, “Do the math, the long-term math.”

Apple’s IOS security is second to none.

And then the mini-epiphany

  • i don’t need to say a word.
  • Don’t need to justify or defend anything.
  • Why would i?

Apple’s IOS security is second to none.

And this made me think about my personal life and the beliefs, choices, and behaviors i embrace or shun.

  • i don’t need to say a word.
  • Don’t need to justify or defend anything.
  • Why would i?

You’re doing it wrong, Jeff

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Opening the box that was shipped from China, at Epcot – a little earlier in the plan than hoped, but we graciously complied at the Epcot bag check table.

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Thought maybe we could take this white box in unopened.

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Nope. (This was ok too.)

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Anticipated worst case scenario, that’s why Chapin was ready with his camera to document the opening.

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Future World.

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Don boxed it back up and i got in the pic for an “i was here” photo.

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Every Guest received a complimentary button. But only yesterday, October 1, 2017.

 

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
The future has arrived. No?

 

You’re doing it wrong, Jeff.

Ok.

To which i think to myself, “But at least i’m doing it.”

Why does that matter?

For many, it doesn’t matter.

And then i remind myself i thought that way too.

Then a series of changes happened and i began a long, slow journey in thinking differently.

The aha moment?

Once i’m doing it, i have a chance to do it better.

Life.

It ain’t a dress rehearsal.

Waiting for perfect means not starting.

Not starting, for me, was riddled with excuses.

Using June 8, 2019 as a deadline for life.

Taking an unopened box to Epcot to open it.

Yeah the stuff i have no role model for.

Live like you mean it.

Or not.

Our choice.

Life would be easier if i didn’t write every morning

https://youtu.be/mW6hFttt_KE

 

Life would be easier if i didn’t write for two hours every morning.

i think about the effort and commitment that happens every day, without fail.

These thoughts are especially strong when there’s more on my plate than is comfortable.

Take right now for example.

It would be so easy to not write (for two hours).

So easy.

Literally a no-brainer.

But i write instead.

Entrepreneurship

Disruption and non-traditional are synonymous

Apple Notes App
Yesterday, this photo is a real example of me taking notes while Gary walked me through it.

 

Yesterday included an opportunity to visit the Apple Store for a one-to-one session with Gary. Gary is an amazing resource for not only everything Apple, but also well beyond the boundaries of Apple technology.

i take many photos on a daily basis. Often, i use photos to take notes, so i was looking for hacks to store these “Notes” photos in contacts.

Learned from Gary that you can’t in contacts but you can with Apple’s Notes app.

This led to Gary sharing some fascinating information about how photos are being used in disruptive (untraditional) ways. Most photos these days never get printed and never end up in a scrapbook. Most are taken to be shared digitally. And they are even used as a substitute when someone texts, “What are you doing right now?”.

Had this crazy idea driving home from Apple that i’ll share on the fourth blog (jungle jeff).
