Panicked mindset?

comic about covid-19
Thank you Covid-19 for showing us how weird people can be when panicked.

Panicked mindset?

Yes, for most.

Why?

Unorganized life.

Unorganized mindset.

This would have been me 15-20 years ago.

The gift to unorganized people is the wakeup call they are experiencing.

Balance (yeah right)

Getting and staying organized enhances your attitude

Apple 3TB Time Capsule
A bit like a seat belt in your daily vehicle. Probably never need (a complete laptop backup) seatbelt, but you wear it every time you get in a vehicle.

 

You can store everything you have digitally in the cloud.

Apple has the Cloud redundancy that they will never lose your stuff.

But what if you accidentally delete something from your laptop files?

Currently, Apple has automatic iCloud backups for your iPhone (without the need for a separate physical device), but not for a MacBook – that is, not unless you have a physical device.

And if you lose something from your phone, you can restore your phone to the previous day and get it back.

A recent accidental deletion of some files woke me up to getting a physcial device – Apple’s Time Capsule.

It’s wireless, and it can be set to automatically (and daily) back up your entire laptop.

The only downside is that it’s a physical device.

Oh well, do what needs to be done to never have to worry about accidents.

This freedom is healthy for your attitude.

Consistent worry, even at a sub-conscience level, inhibits (and limits) our mental attitude.

A pleasure to the senses

Housekeeping card at Disney
Yes. This is true.

 

The card in the photo above is from Disney’s Grand Californian Resort at Disneyland:

A clean setting is a pleasure to the senses.

i didn’t say it, Disney did.

The same applies to our mind.

Disney didn’t say it, i did.

A cluttered mind leads us to the following thought by Bill Gates, to a fault…

Most people overestimate what they can do in 1 year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years. —

It's All We Have

Walt Disney World here we come

Google Maps on iPhone
Decent Sunday morning drive to airport.

 

Ran on 4.5 hours of sleep yesterday.

A storm front kept me on my toes while driving.

No place like home.

Walt Disney World here we come.

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Overcome as quickly and mercilessly as possible

Apple Calendar on Apple Watch
Yesterday and today on Apple Watch.

 

The daily grind never goes away. When we stay on top of it we tend to forget how far we’ve come, how much we’ve conquered, in life. But let a few days, or even a few weeks, of slowly getting behind with our day-to-day and bam, we can feel out of control again.

When our organizational habits force us to live in an out of control world, we adapt and loose our ability to see how draining and stressful this lifestyle is.

Overcoming this, you realize that living the old way was so unhealthy.

Falling back into the old way is an amazingly clear reminder that you have accomplished something magnificent.

And any digression should be overcome as quickly and mercilessly as possible.

Note: The premise is two-fold, bad things are always going to happen and being decently on top of things allows us to tackle them as they come. It’s when we are backed up (as a lifetime habit) in handling bad things that the snowball effect overwhelmes us.
