No watch reprise

Apple Watch release timeline
Time flies.

Stopped wearing a watch in 1995.

Why?

In 1995, clocks where embedded/included in every digital device. Computers, Laptops, pagers, phones, cars, ovens, etc.

Plus, looking at a bare wrist facilitated this habit-changing mantra:

Manage your time with a compass not a clock.

dad

Note: Started wearing a wrist-computer in 2015. Became a first generation Apple Watch early adopter.

Why?

Some day tech will be wearable and the iPhone will be a relic.

Life without a deadline

Everything we owned in 1984 fit into a bunch of boxes. We had no deadline to be in Florida by a certain date.

A well-lived, intentional life is a life without deadlines.

Once you taste freedom, you will never again be employable. WFAA: work from anywhere anytime.

Your calendar drives you or you drive your calendar.
