Day 31 of My 1-Year Experiment

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


May 2019

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Make a list of things you can control about the situation and, just to remind yourself, another list of things you can’t.” Scorpio

Welcome to Day 31 on Saturday, 5/2/19.  Got an email from LinkedIn saying I appeared in 59 searches this week. 

So, which list should I put that on? 

I’m guessing the second,

But, I should probably keep on sharing my articles on LinkedIn and  track my analytics.

It will give me feedback about how many out of my 1800 (+/-) followers aka potential audience follow their minor interests enough to click on “Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing and the Future of Work” which is in the works.  

That I can’t control, right?

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41:You made your choice.  Or did you? It felt like a semiautomatic response to your environment motivated by basic human needs like survival, identity and belonging.” Sagittarius

Ok.  Aoki’s Holiday Tau as it applies to me makes me second guess my list making choices.  How much subconscious influence does survival, identity and belonging factor in? Are they something within my control or things that happen to me?

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Your time is yours and among the most precious things you own.  You’ll deliberate before giving it away.” Aries

On my identity scale of from the highest degree of autonomy to it’s opposite the highest degree of affiliation I always seek independence.  So my time is definitely most precious to me.  Thanks McQueen for the theft — like in the Thomas Crown Affair — of your Holiday Tau.

“5”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: Clutter is a representation of disorder and wonky alignment.  Cleaning it up will cause seemingly unrelated and magical good fortune.” Leo

Did I already mention my obsession with all things Leonardo da Vinci?  I fed Pinboard, my knowledge bank, with articles about him some seven months after Emma the Baroness and I vacated with our close friends Jay and Elle in Florence, Italy. 

There’re articles like: his lost masterpieces, how he was ahead of his time, his mind, as a geologist, why he never finished the Mona Lisa, why his city design was centuries ahead of his time and all of the many, many theories about his life and output. 

Does that count as clutter?  Before I posted them to my knowledge bank for later retrieval? As I interpret the Holiday Tau for Carell, Martin and the Woz I want to believe it does.

“5”  Steve Nash, 45: You can make sense of the illogical, find links between seemingly unrelated things and weave together disparate ideas.” Aquarius

Isn’t this what I’m all about as an idea packager?  Pick out from the noise a signal that connects with something else in a pattern overlooked by 95% of everyone else?

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: You’re starting to think of things in their broader context.  New insights come from big-picture thinking.” Virgo

That’s watcha got G and G?  Yup, I’ll steal your Holiday Tau as well.  Which means compared to what TauBit I’m legitimately entitled to, a mere “3” this completes the sweep of the highest rated.
