S1 E85 — What happens when the fear subsides?

Jazzy’s looking for some advice about a side hustle — he’d been approached by the top advertising guy at his former action sports business.

“5”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “When fear subsides, the brain is quiet.  It’s out of this quiet mind that deep insight and intelligence emerges.” Leo

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

This wasn’t for the advertising creative director, but for his popular side gig and he needs a proposal for social media consulting.

Hi and welcome to Friday’s Episode 85 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this 30th day of August in the summer of 2019.

It took me about a half an hour to locate what I had used and emailed it to him after a little phone consultation.

It’s uncanny how what I advised Jazzy was freakishly similar to the Holiday Tau for Zahn, Emma the Baroness and me.

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: “The safety net can have an effect whether or not it’s actually there.  The confidence one gets in thinking that it’s there will contribute to sure-footed action.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Have you been noticing it too?  Why have I been including so many Steves over the past few days? Has it been some sort of FOMO going on?  Shouldn’t I pay more attention to what’s relevant, you know emphasizing quality over quantity?

If not for me, for Jazzy.  This describes the responsibility he brings all the time.  I can learn from him and from Smith’s Holiday Tau.

“5”  Steve Smith, 30: “You know how to complete your work, show up on time and bring a willingness to work with others, even the difficult ones.” Gemini

And, I see I saved Howey’s as a companion piece.

“5”  Steve Howey, 42: “You have talent, but it doesn’t matter half as much as persistence and applying oneself to the most important task at hand.” Cancer

OK, now that my brain is quiet, I’ll relish deep insight and intelligence.  Count me in.

“5”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “When fear subsides, the brain is quiet.  It’s out of this quiet mind that deep insight and intelligence emerges.” Leo

You mean besides deep insight and intelligence?  How about intuition and lateral thinking together with a talent for picturing the essence of what is at play in a situation.  I mean like visualizing a scene that crystalizes the action and next steps.

“5”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: “What’s the thing you like about yourself today?  You’re allowed to think it.  You’re even allowed to say it, to yourself or anyone who will listen.” Virgo

S1 E82 — Why Writers Aren’t the Only Endangered Species. Sigh.

Hi and welcome to Episode 82 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this 24th day of August in the summer of 2019.

What’s going on?  Over this past week Emma the Baroness and I faced the kinds of technical hell most of us do as consumers that drag on for three days.  

Another one impacted just me when my limit to how much of Fantasyland’s Kindle highlights I could save.  My only workaround was to turn in the book and wait for it to be available again. 

I’m not sure how to value our Holiday Tau this Saturday.

“2”  Steve Zahn, 51: “Saying no can be an act of self-love.  And saying yes can be an act of self-denial. The key is to listen carefully and process thoroughly.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Smith’s Holiday Tau is so true, but not for me today.

“3”  Steve Smith, 30: “Only smart people doubt themselves.  Only ethical people question their own ethics.  And only the most evolved face these sorts of conundrums head-on.” Gemini

Yeah, sure we all skim and scroll to the bottom of terms of use.  And on a much larger scale half of us or maybe more can’t trust what our president says.

“4”  Steve Aoki, 41: “Before the technology and law inserted so much complication into life, a person’s word was his or her honor.  Now we don’t even read what we agree to anymore.  Not you; not today.” Sagittarius

Harvey’s Holiday Tau could mean if the folks I meet at the WordPress Meetups are people I want to include in my network. 

I’ve even thought that if for nothing else, being able to be the administrator for all six of my websites could qualify me for a newer career direction.  And, interestingly enough I briefly met a retired LA Times photographer who struggled like I did with setting up his site to showcase his gallery.  He told me with a sigh that the newspaper business he spent his entire in had changed so much. 

“5”  Steve Harvey, 62: “You’re getting established into new communities and circles.  Just make sure before you agree that this is the group of which you want to be a part.” Capricorn

I’m going to combine Nash’s and Jobs’ Holiday Tau for a Saturday, eh?

“4”  Steve Nash, 45: “Go have fun by yourself.  It will develop the part of you that makes the most difference to your experience.” Aquarius

This is how I felt about reading and taking notes on Fantasyland by Kurt Andersen.

“4”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “Choose a challenge that is interesting and not too hard.  Lose yourself in total engagement with the task.” Pisces

S1 E77 — Why This Caper Is Breaking My Mind

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

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “If you take it seriously — this caper you’re planning could change everything.” Aries

Evidence

What’s been going on? I used to monitor how I published drafts to one of my six blogs in a simple spreadsheet.  Over time I learned it took many drafts before I published.  So I included that information. 

Hi and welcome to Friday’s Episode 77 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this sixteenth day of August in the summer of 2019. 

And I knew for each post I needed to select a photo either one I took or from an open source site to add.  And, then I knew I needed to add a title and subheading, so I tracked that information. 

So, after while with practice and discipline I could tell where an essay would end up being published and where it was in the composing and editing process.  

Which brings me to this week.  I’m integrating columns and rows from my blog tracking spread sheet into a “Working on the Business” spreadsheet that will tell me across all my passion projects what has to happen next and when it’s due.

And it’s breaking my mind.

But what a great Holiday Tau for a Friday! Like take the afternoon off, because you stuck with your tracking how you spent your time all week?

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: Introspection will be an important part of your care today, and you should give yourself gentle encouragement and time for pondering.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Wow, seriously?  I like McQueen’s Holiday Tau. It gives me something to believe in like a light at the end of the long, long tunnel.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “If you take it seriously — this caper you’re planning could change everything.” Aries

How did you know I needed to lift your Holiday Tau? Thanks, Steve.

“5”  Steve Smith, 30: “There are surface-level challenges to make and strategies to apply in efforts to improve this scene.” Gemini

Oddly enough this makes perfect sense to me, yet I’m not feeling its energy today.

“3”  Steve Howey, 42: “Sometimes you project the past and remember the future.  It doesn’t make perfect sense, but your imperfect senses are better anyway.” Cancer

Well, it is Friday.  I’ll have to check in later with Emma the Baroness!

“4”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: “Today brings your favorite kinds of moments — highly amusing and unexpected.  This is partly because you’re observant and curious.” Virgo

Sorry G&G, I’m not totally buying your Holiday Tau.  Some of the work I’ve done drained me and bored me and ultimately drove me to change employment.

“2”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61: “There’s the work that pays the bills and the work that saves your soul.  It’s the same work, actually — same work, different approach.” Libra

I’m closer to buying what Jobs’ Tau is offering — there’s a fundamental message I believe in, but I’m not valuing it as much today.

“3” Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “All effectiveness will come from dealing in what is.  These things siphon your power: escape, distraction and any rejection of the circumstance.” Pisces

Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: “Conflict, tension and surprise aren’t just essential elements of drama; they’re needed in real life.” Libra

I’m a little freaked out over the complexity and I wish I had implemented some sort of version control like engineers and programmers I used to work with did.  Note to myself.

Hi and welcome to Episode 76 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this fifteenth day of August in the summer of 2019.

What’s been going on? I’ve been walking roughly three miles around our lake a few times a week listening to my iTunes playlist of songs.

When one captures my inner Leo da V I make a note of the singer and title for later reference in my Notes.  What occurred to me lately is beyond the Tau of Steves, shouldn’t there be well rounded input, from say their lovers, friends, wives, sisters and maybe others, to vouch for the value of their Tau?  Just saying. 

And, if so a reminder I’m on the “E’s,” alphabetically.

However comma, as Emma the Baroness loves to say when she shifts gears into a new topic, one of my monumental projects called “Working On the Business” includes

1. Comparing my earliest manuscript for Book One: ”On Your Own Terms: Pack More Meaning and Passion into Your Life” one chapter at a time to blog posts.

2. Consider adding photos.

3. Make edits chapter by chapter including in “The Knowledge Path Volume One”.

4. Identify blog-to-website changes necessary.

S1 E74 — You Know What To Do, Yeah Right!

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

Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “You’ve been through trying times, and this isn’t one of them.  You already know the right action. Take it.” Aries

Evidence

Hi and welcome to Episode 74 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this ninth day of August in the summer of 2019.

What’s been going on? So far I’ve kept up with the first full week of tracking 30 minute blocks of time starting last Wednesday. 

Recently I solved what had been a long-term work around for extracting ideas and concepts I needed to rearrange, reframe, and repackage.  

Yes, with photos of pages you did record the exact page for attribution, but let’s say you photoed a gazillion pages and then wanted to find that one passage you needed to quote for your passion project.  

I couldn’t search like in text to find it.  But, Shaggy showed me how he used Kindle to highlight passages and convert them into searchable documents.  

So, I can’t tell you how many pages of Fantasyland I’d photoed the old way.  I could, but what’s the point?  The point is I felt ecstatic when my local library offered Kurt Anderson’s book in Kindle.  

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Armed with my Kindle, it’s so easy to see how relevant McQueen’s Tau is for me today.

“5”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “You’ve been through trying times, and this isn’t one of them.  You already know the right action. Take it.” Aries

Mr. Howey I presume.  May I swipe your TauBit of wisdom?  You see I’ve been skipping around all my life learning things — hell, even at the end of last week and by color code this week. There may not be a way to skip ahead, but you can anticipate years ahead, play if that, then this and wait for signals that today is the day to pull the trigger on a decision or opportunity that does accelerate you.

“5”  Steve Howey, 42: “People may skip around learning different things at different stages, but there really is no skipping ahead.  So don’t be jealous when you notice someone is at a stage that’s foreign to you.” Cancer

I’m suggesting this Holiday Tau for Aoki isn’t quite right for me.  Don’t take me wrong.  I don’t assume everyone is like me.  But this might turn out to be more helpful for you.

“3”  Steve Aoki, 41: “You assume that everyone is like you, but it’s not true.  Many aren’t paying such close attention.  All the more reason you should.” Sagittarius

Haha.  Now, this resonates with me.  It’s my Obama syndrome.  Sometimes I can’t help myself as the shear amount of information that automatically flows out of my mouth is nearly unstoppable. In fact, as a trainer I’ve had to train myself to stop and ask a question, like “Does that make sense?” or very closely look for signals like rolling of the eyes or popping up their smartphones until I’ve concluded. 

“5”  Steve Harvey, 62: “New people are interested in you.  Don’t let them get confused by too much information.” Capricorn

Kids, don’t try this at home.  But if you try tracking your 1/2 hour blocks of time because you really, really want to change a habit, then make sure you follow Job’s Holiday Tau.

“4”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “Not celebrating your success would be a mistake.  The small wins especially need acknowledgement.” Pisces

S1 E73 — Do You Need a Little Leo da V Time Too?

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

Steve Zahn, 51: The thing you do in the moment might be impulsive or awkward or might lack a certain amount of emotional control that you wish you could claim.  Who cares?” Scorpio

Evidence

Hi and welcome to Episode 73 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this eighth day of August in the summer of 2019.

What’s been going on? My goal for this week was to make good on dividing my time among my four passion projects.  

So far I can view the first three days and see by color code how much time I actually spent on each activity.  

In preparation for our Norwegian vacation we scheduled interviews with TSA at the airport with four names to qualify for our pre-screening security treatment at the gate. 

I’d actually spent one whole day figuring out what was required to upload ebooks to Apple Books and how to market them.  I concluded there were lots and lots of moving parts before I could close the gap on that project. 

And, today while listening to Marc Maron’s podcast interview with Kurt Anderson my passion rekindled.  But my Inspiration software crashed as I sketched out how insights in my notes from Fantasyland fit my Volume Three time line.

I’ve been so over structured, that I needed a Leo da Va time.  Wait, do I schedule in time for that?  Or risk becoming distracted by just letting him flow in the moment?

“5”  Steve Zahn, 51: The thing you do in the moment might be impulsive or awkward or might lack a certain amount of emotional control that you wish you could claim.  Who cares?” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

Nash’s Holiday Tau is a cautionary tale for all of us introverts who just love them some solitude to concentrate on their (my) mega-projects.

“4”  Steve Nash, 45: “The same structure that protects us and brings shelter in our day-to-day life can also be a cage.” Aquarius

Harvey’s Holiday Tau describes my weakness, especially with timelines and deadlines attached to mega-projects.

“5”  Steve Harvey, 62: “With goal setting, getting the scale right is tricky.  You probably won’t nail this on the first try, so keep going until you do.” Capricorn

What is the definition of “if”?  I fell back on time-tracking frequently in my past when my natural instincts had to be redirected, so yeah Jobs’ Holiday Tau is just as pertinent at Harvey’s.

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “It’s as though you’ve been through this scenario already in some kind of stimulated drill.  There’s a gut feeling left over that you can trust.” Pisces

Of course it would take the Holiday Tau for two comedians and a company founder to point out how this iterative tracking process actually plays out.

“4”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “Whatever your weakness, that’s part of the design that can be worked with, the part that draws people in.” Leo

I don’t think so.

“2”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “Today you’ll see people move away from overly controlling influences and toward those who comfort and assure.” Aries

Haha.  This reminds me of the time I attended a networking event where the guest motivational speaker handed out paperback copies of his book, and I’m paraphrasing here, “Help Me Help You” and I politely listened wondering if I had to become him to make a living as a consultant and advisor promoting myself with “knowledge products”?

“4”  Steve Greene, 34; Steve Guttenberg, 61; Stephen King, 72: “There are people in the business of helping others who only really help themselves.  Don’t buy into a model that shows sign of greed.” Virgo

Wait, isn’t kind of projection on display first in the election runoff among republican candidates, then again in the 2016 election, and yet again currently on Twitter?

“5”  Steve Aoki, 41: “Pointing fingers will be a temptation.  Of course, it wouldn’t bother you about another person if you didn’t notice the quality somewhere in yourself.” Sagittarius

S1 E72 — It’s Taken so Long, I Could be Wrong

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

Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “Self-esteem is tricky.  It’s not based on what you do.  It’s a matter of evaluation.” Pisces

Hi and welcome to Episode 72 in the first season of ” My 1-Year Experiment” on this fourth day of August in the summer of 2019 .

Evidence

What’s been going on? So this is becoming the first full week of following Peter Drucker’s Effective Executive tool for tracking your time.  

I actually began it on 7/31/19 by just getting used to filling in 1/2 hour blocks of time. Then, I began color coding activities.  Tan for Working on the Business; blue for Volume Three Manuscript about a Legacy Memoir; green for Volume Two Manuscript about Work; and red for freeing up time for free flowing creativity — What Would Leo da V do?

I was so hoping the Holiday Tau for Zahn, Winkler, Emma the Baroness and me would reflect what I’m up to.  Not so much for today.

“2”  Steve Zahn, 51: Storms are named after people.  You know first hand why this is so.” Scorpio

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

I’m not proud of myself when I’m forced to lift a Holiday Tau from the other Steves, but sometimes you just can’t help it. If not you, then what? Jobs and Howey to the rescue.

And it’s a matter of who does the evaluation. 

“5”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “Self-esteem is tricky.  It’s not based on what you do.  It’s a matter of evaluation.” Pisces

So, if I don’t harness my muse, Leo da V, then yes I’ll flow from thing to thing like what happens when you dump quicksilver onto a surface.  There’s a time for it. And Howey’s Holiday Tau can be my curse or blessing.

“5”  Steve Howey, 42: “Like the tide, you roll in here and you roll in there, seeing many a distant shore.  Yet none can keep you.” Cancer

McQueen’s requires quite a contortion for me to twist it to fit.  Exposure — if I fill in time blocks after if finish a task, maybe that helps to face the fear?

“2”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “Fears are overcome with exposure.  Relax first and then face the fear.” Aries

So confidence and ignorance is bliss, or am I miss-reading this?  I’d rather be a Man of Knowledge instead.

“2”  Steve Carell, 57; Steve Martin, 74; Steve Wozniak, 69: “Confidence is more easily obtained through ignorance than it is through knowledge.” Leo

Sure, but …

“2”  Steve Harvey, 62: “There’s no place for regret in today’s discourse except to use it as a signal to stop to find something that will get you back to ‘now’” Capricorn

Day 65 of My 1-Year Experiment

Summer July 2019

What’s been going on?  I continued transcribing more hand written journal entries into manuscript chapters.  

Welcome to Episode 65 of My 1-Year Experiment on today, July 14th.

Here’s a snapshot of the latest: 

“Shaggy had three games in three days. Was hit in the small of his back near his left side. Came up the next inning and got a hit. Told him how proud I was for him to face his fear. He had reluctant to play Triple-A because he might get hit. This weekend— helped Vickie and Mike move out of their house back to Michigan. Brian was Jeffrey’s best friend and Shaggy grew attached to him too, Elizabeth and “Craigers” became permanent fixtures at our house. Elizabeth was a surrogate daughter for Emma the Baroness. They barely escaped becoming “homeless.” With Mike’s two Pizza stores undercapitalized — they drained their IRA’s etc. and had escrow attached. They barely made it out of town with anything to show for the time they spent in California.

Random ones that make me want change my sign.

So, let’s see.  Is there any reason I should renounce my birth date and sign on to another?

Hmm.  Sorry.  I’m not feeling McQueen’s Holiday Tau today while submerged in my manuscript transcription project.

“2”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “You’ll gravitate toward results-focused programs and teachers.” Aries

Leave it to WW&C’s Holiday Tau to mean more.  I’ll dive right in moving from one hand written journal chapter to the next until the whole morning has passed and the late afternoon shift in shadows draws my attention to my severe energy depletion.

“5”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: “You’ll use the finite resource that is your mental energy to focus on what is under your control.” Taurus

For my consulting work, Smith’s Holiday Tau hit’s the mark when it comes to meeting new potential clients to prepare proposals that lead to contracts.  It’s one of the most difficult processes to master for me.

“5”  Steve Smith, 30: “Ask for what you want, request what you need, and adjust your offerings along the way.” Gemini

Nah.  Not going to do it.  Trends are my thing.  Anticipating how they influence my long term financial, career and family plans are critical. Sorry, but it might work for you as a TauBit for the Taking.

S1 E62 – Next Reality?

Summer July 2019

“4”  Steve Howey, 42: “This next reality is coming together with the help of your mind’s eye, the intentions of those who need you, and the hand of fate.” Cancer

Welcome to Day 62 of My 1-Year Experiment on this July 11th. What’s been going on? 

I’ve been transcribing four chapters into a draft of what I’m calling “Volume Three” a memoir — legacy of sorts.  This passage reminds me what it was like to be a Dad, right after my kids fly home after a summer visit.

All those things fill in the sweet sorrow. Why do I write all this? Instead of getting on with something else like my computer business, etc? I guess I know tomorrow I’ll be conditioned to get back into my normal work-a-day role with its pressures and deadlines. These memories will be buried deep — almost beyond reach. And I sense there is something important here. Their trip every year brings headaches, but also a part of me surfaces and then goes away for another 11 months.

Given what I’ve been working on, I’m not feeling the relevance of Zahn’s Holiday Tau today.

“2”  Steve Zahn, 51: “You’ve been watching a skilled person and picking up technique.  You’ll soon be solving a problem differently than you did it in the past.” Scorpio

What about Jobs’ Holiday Tau? Do I?  I’d like to think so.

“4”  Steve Jobs, (1955 – 2011): “You’ve all the ideas about how a masterful person would show up and complete the task at hand.  Go on and follow in the footsteps of this idealized version of you.” Pisces

What’s my method that McQueen’s Holiday Tau describes? Hmm. Not sure. Could it be writing in my journal over the years to be revisited and edited later? Maybe. So, what has changed?

“3”  Steve McQueen (1930 – 1980): “Your method has helped you get the goal several times already, but now something has changed. Adapt.” Aries

Haha. Can I breathe if I’m still under water?  Sure I’ve spent a career so far successfully interpreting what a new boss needs and telling stories how I’ve got the track record to accomplish what they need.  You know, “Fake it until you make it”.

“4”  Steve Winwood, 71; Stevie Wonder, 69; Stephen Colbert, 56: “You may be in over your head, but you’re always going to swim somewhere near the top.” Taurus

Wait.  Am In interpreting Howey’s Holiday Tau correctly?  Let’s combine it with WW&C’s to increase the ratings.

“4”  Steve Howey, 42: “This next reality is coming together with the help of your mind’s eye, the intentions of those who need you, and the hand of fate.” Cancer

Nah.
