I thought you were pulling my leg when you said you watched this old black and white short film every month. It almost seems ludicrous in its simplicity, but I think a lot of us are guilty of moving too fast when we should be taking the time to think slowly and to be more present in the moment. One of my hacks is to add an interesting web page to my iPhone’s home screen; it then launches like an app. I’ve done so with this video: the icon is now next to the Cake app, which will remind me to rewatch the video periodically.
So many great ideas shared by everyone, btw. I think it will take several days to digest @MarkG ’s systems but I do expect to have a few questions since there’s a lot of complexity to it.
@margot you are my hero and I am envious of your ability to tune out everyone else in an open plan office. A conversation in the office across from mine is enough to have me scrambling to turn up the volume on my headphones.
And @kwthom , I may not be retired but I would be in the doghouse significantly less often with my spouse if I remembered to write appointments on the calendar AND to check the calendar more frequently.
@amacbean16 you are a beast of productivity. We are all in awe.
