It's How You Choose to Look at Your Situation
I had a good morning.  I took the later flight out which meant I did not have to get up at 3:30am.  I was able to kiss my kids and wife and get them off to school and work.  I was able to walk the dog.   I was able to get some work done and still get to the...

Simplicity Wins
I just tried to use Cortana to add an appointment to my outlook calendar.  Yuk.  It was clunky and worse it didn't get the date or subject right. Compare that to my google phone which gets it right 99% of the time and is easier to use.  Microsoft Cortana is...

Play Hurt
The athlete knows the day will never come when he wakes up pain-free. He has to play hurt. I am no athlete but I am athelitic.  As I suffer through another bout of Plantar's Fasciitis, I can't run.  Running was my stress reliever.  When I can't run, I can't...

Mobile payments
Cash is so 1990's.  Credit cards are so 2000.  Mobile payments are truly the future but adoption is slow by consumers and by retailers. I love the convenience of securing and paying for Uber on my phone. It's not a true mobile payment, but the experience of...

Prioritizing and the lack of time.
Last week I was in DC and the week before that I was in Mexico for 2 days (all business, but fun business).   During that time, I responded only to the most urgent emails and requests.  I just this morning got to some voicemails that were left during that t...
