42 degrees this morning, no walk.
Didn’t walk primarily due to schedule today but also since I still have a “common cold” that I don’t want to make any worse.
Getting very tired of the cold weather, yesterday was a high or around 55 degrees, plus the wind and moisture made it seem colder, so it was especially miserable. Rained most of the morning.
I have been monitoring my Apply Watch Battery. Since the watch only uses about 27 to 35% of the battery each day, I decided to start charging the battery every other day. This was after reading that the life of a battery is primarily defined by the number of charges.
However, my experience is that it really doesn’t make any difference. For example, I know my current Apple MacBook Air has had over a 1,000 charges and it is fine, and similar experience with other Apple products. In fact, I have never replaced a battery on an Apple product.
Of course, I have had similar experiences with other products. Both my keyboard and my mouse batteries (just regular old disposable AA batteries) have lasted over 3 1/2 years. (and probably will go out today after I mentioned it!)
I really think battery technology is as important as any technology and really think we will be running our houses and businesses off of battery power instead of the current system.
I don’t know if they will be charged with solar, wind or even an occasionally truck that “recharges” the battery, but I really feel like that time is coming when the present system will are obsolete.
That would really change our current system.
Dwelling on my comments about how it seemed like I had more time when I worked a lot more than I do now.
I think a lot of it is how I prioritize time and efficiency in setting priorities for projects.
I lover Holidays, especially when I worked a lot of hours because it was truly a “Holiday”. Usually you don’t get calls on a Holiday unless it is a true emergency, unlike a vacation ay etc. However, I had a hard time on Holidays since I wanted to do so much I frequently couldn’t decide what to do!
I think what I will do is set some priorities on projects on what I want to do and then get those projects done, rather than have a bunch of projects I am continually working on.
I think approaching some projects in a “bite at a time” approach is good for big projects, but there are a lot of smaller projects that may be better approached from the “get it done now” approach.
Now if I just can tell which approach is best fro each project! I also have the “problem” of new projects coming up that demand time, so it is difficult to schedule time.
That’s it for now, Thursday, April 25, 2018.
