“Never give up, suckas. lol”
-Thomas Alva Edison
I don’t really have all that much to report. Flossed. Exercised. Meditated in my car for 20 minutes to relax before a job interview. It worked! (I don’t think I ever truly tamed my thinking, but I was somewhat relaxed in the interview.) I ate some meatless Korean food for dinner. And not a cocktail or liqueur to speak of. Debating if Altoids count as sweets. If they do, then I’ve done fucked up a couple dozen times this week. Other than that, all is well on this speeding Turbo-Train.
Two Productivity Based Links For Your Pleasurefulness
I started using something yesterday called a “hipster PDA.” Are any of you familiar with this? I’ve been reading about it for a couple years, but finally bit the bullet. I’ll report on it’s effectiveness, but today it seemed to do the trick!
Merlin Mann, inventor of the hipster PDA, is a creative and organization man. His 43 Folders site is all about “finding the time and attention to do your best creative work.” A couple of years ago he spoke at an event put on by Jesse Thorn of The Sound of Young America and I think if you are as all over the map in the head-brain as me, you’ll get a lot out of listening to this:
Your inspiration is… Cornbread! HANDLE IT!
Thanks For Your Feedback
I’ve gotten some fantastic feedback on the Turbo-Charge so far. Most of you seem to be enjoying it, and the Facebook community seems to be thriving and helpful. I am trying to provide resources as I can, but I’d like to provide even more. I got some great suggestions today (more on meditation, productivity, organization seems to be the theme), so stay tuned as I will try to dig deeper into certain aspects of it on the blog next week.
I got a shooting gig in Las Vegas this weekend, and I leave tomorrow morning and return Sunday evening. I have no idea how much online access I will have, so it’s possible you will have to fend for yourselves for a few days. I know, I know, seemingly impossible. How will you survive without links to non-obscure events websites and rashly decided upon creative assignments?? So, I may have plenty of time and ample online access, but if not, hang tight, and keep the turbo-charge alive!
