41 degrees this morning, 100 % Humidity
Weather is just on the subpar side, too cool for Spring1 The sun not shining has a lot to do with the overall perception!
I read something yesterday about why we feel like we never have time. I didn’t have tome to read it in detail, so I’ll have to go back to read it in more detail.
i got two threads of thought out of the article. One was that “control” of time is a factor. I actually have a lot less control over my time during the day than I used too. I can feel it almost every day and it does bother me.
Fortunately I still have substantial control over my activities, which helps a little.
I think even though I used to work a lot more hours, I expect I felt I had a lot more control over what I did.
Another factor was how “meaningful” you felt what you are doing is. Actually I think everything I do is somewhat meaningful.
I think that is one reason I don’t like having to call about a defective product, or about a problem, I lose control off that time.
I’ll have to research this some more, it has some interesting concepts.
A report on the electric razor. I have kind of come to terms with the fact I will use the electric razor on some days and the old blade system of shaving on others.
The electric razor basically does a good job, except that over a period of several days of continued use, it seems to lose it effectiveness and I have to use the regular razor one day. That may be just my perception, but my perception is a lot of reality in this matter1
I gave a speech on “digital assistants” (Amazon Echo or Google Home). They truly are awesome devices and keep getting better!
Of course if I think about it, it is one more way we depend on electricity, the internet etc. I read the books about how fragile our electric distribution system is and how it is so easy to hack into even the most important and secure system.
I just read a book where hackers took over the operation of ams, electric systems, flights etc. that created world wide chaos.
Actually, I don’t sit around worrying about it, I’m not really in a position of doing anything to prevent it. Although I don’t like the concept of dealing without electricity etc., I”m not going to sit around and worry about it either
That’s it for now, Tuesday, March 26,2019.
