S1 E114 — Setbacks, Frustration, Epic Fails but How Was Your Day?

Day Eight of our Scorpio Time celebration was an epic fail —no TauBits of Wisdom on Sunday for Zahnny and us worth mentioning.  Not even for the rest of the celebrity Steves to make me want to change my sign or steal their slices of wisdom.

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

Day Nine of Scorpio Time

“5”  Steve Kerr, 54:With temporary setbacks, it can be frustrating to have a constant awareness that something is off.  Think of the state as a mind-over-matter type of challenge.” Libra

Hi and welcome to Thursday’s Episode 114 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Natural Experiment” on this 7th day of November in the fall of 2019, also known as Day Nine of Scorpio Time.

Day Eight of our Scorpio Time celebration was an epic fail —no TauBits of Wisdom on Sunday for Zahnny and us worth mentioning.  Not even for the rest of the celebrity Steves to make me want to change my sign or steal their slices of wisdom.

Working on the business consumed my week.  

My research sweet spot focused on both platforms — Patreon, the one I anticipated launching on — and WordPress which is where I host my six blogs.  

    • What I wanted was some transition into a membership based business so my blogs and Patreon cross-promoted each other.  
    • But, so far my stand alone blogs had failed to direct traffic from one to another.  And, I had no way of generating income from them.  
    • I had put off converting each blog into a full-featured website because the technical challenges with pages and templates and menus and … everything else required of me froze my brain and fogged my mind.

Today, I realized the “Twenty Seventeen” WordPress Theme I chose for all blogs was set up for an ongoing business.  

Maybe not exactly what I needed.  

Then, of course, I  wasn’t sure what it was that I needed when I bit the bullet and launched them two years ago.

Given all that, how much do I have to read into today’s Holiday Tau for Zahn, Winkler, Emma the Baroness and me? 

Hmm.  

Not the best, but as I look over how my 6 blogs have turned out, I can see the TauBit of Wisdom this one.

“4”  Steve Zahn, 51: “You can’t tell which action you’ll be proud of or not proud of until you do the thing and see how it feels.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Yo, Mr. Kerr I’d like to borrow your Holiday Tau if you aren’t using it.  Something is almost always off, wrapped in frustration and head banging.  But, what really attracted me to yours is the “mind over matter” reference back to my mother and, especially my grandmother who took my sister and I to Christian Science Sunday School.

Haha, McQueen’s Holiday Tau suggests just the opposite of my week’s worth of frustration and technical agony.  But, it’s where I “go” when I ask for guidance from my muse — “What would Leo da V do?”

“3” Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): Do things for the pleasure of doing them instead of for the points, money or approval that might come.  Aries

To be honest guys, your Holiday Tau describes how I feel about my normal days and weeks.  But, not this week, or today.

“3” Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: You’ve been finding ways to work what you’re best at into your daily life.  Now your days reflect you so much better.  Taurus

Listen G&G, I so much want to follow your Holiday Tau today, but I’m so burned out with my energy depleted that I can’t muster my observant creative self to show his head.

“4”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61:Wherever you’re at in life today, bring your most observant, creative self to it.” Virgo

Not to be flippant, but I’m just not following your Tau.

“2”  Steve Aoki, 41: Relationships get broken.  Repairs can happen individually, together or in subsequent relationships with different people.” Sagittarius
