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

Summer July 2019

“4”  Steve Smith, 30: “Study what the others before you did.  It will seem to take forever and then actually save you a lot of time.” Gemini

What’s been going on? Yes, my struggle with WordPress continues.  Their technical documents were, well too technical for me.  

Welcome to Day 61 of My 1-Year Experiment on July 6th.

My intention directed me towards revamping my websites beyond just housing my blogs.  So I clicked on a link inside my administrative page and signed up for my local WordPress meetup. 

This meetup is intended for intermediate to advanced WordPress developers.This month’s topic will be a mish-mash of developery things. 


Note: If you have questions or topics outside of the main topic, we won’t turn you away. We’ll reserve the last 30 minutes or so of the meetup for off-topic questions.

Oh, Ok.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Place yourself in an interesting environment where relationships might develop.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

I feel this is exactly what I’ve been doing through trial and error with WordPress documentation. And Smith’s Holiday Tau holds out hope.  It is taking forever now.

“4”  Steve Smith, 30: “Study what the others before you did.  It will seem to take forever and then actually save you a lot of time.” Gemini

Hmm.  Can’t say Howey’s Holiday Tau fits me today.

“2”  Steve Howey, 42: “The reason you’re on the receiving end is that it’s simply your turn.  So don’t over think it.  Get into gracious-mode and start appreciating this stuff.” Cancer

Wait.  CM&W’s Holiday Tau had me in the first two sentences, but lost me at the tail end.  

“3”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “The wise one doesn’t necessarily have all of the information.  Because wisdom isn’t so much about holding on to a lot of true facts, as it is about knowing who to be.” Leo

Aoki’s Holiday Tau rings true for me, and may be exactly what will solve my WordPress issues in a couple of days, but I’m witnessing it today.

“2”  Steve Aoki, 41: “History changes.  And context changes everything, as will be well-illustrated today.” Sagittarius

Haha.  If this was all about being Frank, we couldn’t call it The Tau of Steves, now could we.  But, be that as it may perhaps Harvey’s Holiday Tau rings truer that the others.

“4”  Steve Harvey, 62: “It’s important to be very honest in your noticing of yourself.  See what you’re good at.  Be frank about what you’re good at.  Be frank about what you’re not attracted to and what’s hard for you.” Capricorn

Okay, this is a start.  Both for Emma the Baroness and my relationship, but also for my anticipated memoir.

“5”  Steve Nash, 45: “Tell the story about when the flame of passion ignited in you and you’ll feel it flicker again.” Aquarius

Hmm.  What could this be about?  I’ve been using a spreadsheet over the last few years to track which book chapter excerpts appeared in which of six blogs.  Do I need another way of tracking how I spend my time?

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “There’s a decision to be made, and you’re the best one to make it, mostly because you’re the only one you can really trust to follow through on this.  Decide, and set up your system of accountability.” Pisces
