S1 E106 — Attempts to Upset 9 of My Life Stages Apple Cart

I didn’t escape the weekend without whining (or wining) about the fallout from Apple’s upgrade to a new OS version and a scramble to pull out everything I can from the graphic layout which helps me move concepts around like they were on Post-it Notes.

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


Hi and welcome to Sunday’s Episode 106 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Natural Experiment” on this 20th day of October in the fall of 2019.

I completed the first pass of “Volume Two Manuscript” about Work,  but confronted all the unlinked and disconnected screens associated with “Volume Three Manuscript.”

This one is part memoir, part legacy, part stories about facing challenges over the course of a decade only to master them and then in the next decade run into a different set of challenges.  

If done right it should synch with life stages introduced as missing chapters from the Volume One Manuscript, “The Knowledge Path: Live. Love. Work. Play. Invest. Leave a Legacy” I published in my Knowledge Banking website.

Life Stages:

Part One:  She’s Leaving Home, Not Living Alone (Buy Buy)

Part Two:  Failing at Growing Up

Part Three:  Love, Marriage, Baby Carriage, or …

Part Four:  Crisis and Pivots for 28 -32 Year Olds

Part Five:  Making It – Ages 30 – 38

Part Six:  Authenticity Crisis for 35 – 45 Year Olds

Part Seven:  Renewal or Resignation in Your Mid-40s

Part Eight: 55 Year Olds- Millennials and Empty Nests

Part Nine: 65+ Years Old: Maturity, Integrity and Wisdom

Funny you should ask.  I find myself so lost in the creative process I lose track of time.  If I didn’t track what I’ve been working on each day in my “Weekly Time Blocks” I wouldn’t know if I was making progress.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “This day has potential to count big-time toward your goal.  How are you monitoring your progress?” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Sorry, Steve but I consider your Holiday Tau just one degree above a throw away TauBit of Wisdom.

“2”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Do you have control over the outcome? If not, it’s not your problem.” Aries

Seems pretty esoteric, maybe too much.  What are we saying here, Steve?

“2”  Steve Smith, 30:Your priorities are different than in recent times.  A larger shift is coming.” Gemini

Usually CC&W’s Holiday Tau means more to me than this one.  Sorry guys.

“2”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69:It’s better to do little and promise nothing than to get mixed up in something that will make next week stressful.” Leo

Ok, but then what is the second rule to self-control, Coach Kerr?

“2”  Steve Kerr, 54: The first rule to improving self-control is removing temptation.” Libra

I have to say the Holiday Tau for all the Steves, except for Zahn rate below par today.

“3”  Steve Harvey, 62: “Seems you’ll have to break some norms to do what you want to do.” Capricorn
