Day 24 of My 1-Year Experiment

The Tau of Steves: What You Don’t Know Could Fill a Book


April 2019

Yesterday’s Holiday Tau struck me as being one of the most or the most extraordinary day during the first 23 days of this 1-year experiment.  Starting with the TauBit for Steve Zahn, Henry Winkler, Emma the Baroness and me and then continuing with 6 more for a total of 7 each scored the highest rating — a “5”.  I don’t know about today yet, but the pressure is on, wouldn’t you say?

What’s different for today, 4/18/19? Nothing exciting enough for us to even mention, so let’s move on somewhat disappointed.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

I published another curated story from my Best West Road Trip blog called, “It’s Not Too Early to Plan Your Weekend, Staycation or Vacation, Right?” I couldn’t figure out how to display a visual piece while summarizing stories from different regions.  I’d been trying to build a following on LinkedIn, but to be honest I just couldn’t figure out how to pull it off. 

“4”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980):The epiphany will not be a thunder bolt. Rather, it will unfold in stages and ideas, each building on the last.”Aries

I have to say variations of Winwood’s and Wonder’s Holiday Tau help me immensely.  So, much so that my usual MO centers on flipping local stories in the news by geographic locations while I’m only partially awake before my morning coffee.  Usually an idea strikes me related or unrelated to the 5 steps you should take to evaluate whether you should move there or not, which might be something missing I can use later after coffee on a passion project.

“4”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69: Get started and a half-hour later, motivation may kick in, though it probably won’t stay.  You can work without it.” Taurus

Fire fighting. Heroic feats against all odds pump the adrenalin in life and at work.  A good portion of my work life had been spent advocating for prevention.  Selling in workshops, seminars and newsletters quality improvement, continuous improvement, re-engineering — all non-bonus triggering incidents — that make larger corporations more profitable by shrinking costs in day-to-day operations.  Even typing this makes it sound boring.  

“3”   Steve Smith, 30: Prevention isn’t glamorous or dramatic.  It’s the opposite of a story, since you don’t really ever know the extent of what you’re preventing.  Gemini

As if rounding out today’s Holiday Tau Greene’s and Guttenberg’s TauBit circles back to the top with McQueen’s revealing the spotty interplay with epiphany and blanks and moments of clarity I encounter.

“4”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: Like spotty cellphone service, you’ll get moments of clarity and plenty of blanks to fill in.  Look at this like a puzzle or a game and you’ll have fun with it.” Virgo
