Be prepared

Walking through neighborhood with headlamp. The small and lightweight lamp is as bright as a car headlight.

With the recent “fall back” clock change, our morning walks are in the dark. Our subdivision has no street lights.

One especially dark morning, the idea was born to wear the headlamp.

The headlamp was purchased in Glacier National Park and carried daily in the pack.

Never expected to be hiking in the dark.

Which is why it was carried daily all Summer.

Pack as light as possible, but what happens if you unexpectedly find yourself in an unexpected situation?

The power of not selling

Wide angle shot from last night.
Closeup. The email sender’s name is more important than the subject line. The preheader text is also more important than the subject line.

Matthew Montoya is an email list expert. He has a decade of experience teaching (14k total) businesses globally.

What is mystifying to those of us not on the inside of email list creation, management and improvement, comes across effortlessly with his broad and deep insider experience.

Everything he shared made perfect sense.

Guessing that his message resonated more and had greater credibility because he didn’t try to sell us anything.

Duly noted.

Walk away and do not care

House painting every decade or so.

My to-do list now has “create a list of things you will no longer do”: a to-don’t list.

Walk away and do not care about things that are no longer relevant in your life.

Nothing wrong with being a do it yourselfer.

Does the money you save compete with the time it takes you?

Do you know how much your time is worth?

Keenly aware time is finite. Keenly aware that to-do lists will never end unless we over-focus on structure and process.

Quickbooks revelation

First view coming out of the tunnel.
Ptarmigan Tunnel hike view after passing through the tunnel. The posts from that day didn’t share many scenic photos.
On left edge you spot two people about to go back through the tunnel to the Swiftcurrent (southern) side.
Hiked to there, about one mile from where i’m taking this photo.
The path down, and North, has a rock wall ledge (left) for maybe 100 meters.
Cloudy skies conceal much of the rocks energy. When the sun breaks through, magnificently different.
Ahern Glacier (left) and Old Sun Glacier (right) on the top horizon. Only visible as i walked well past the tunnel exit.
About to head south and back to Swiftcurrent Motor Inn.

The paperwork of life is a challenge.

Add a small business’s paperwork on top of your life’s paperwork and you have a perfect storm for daily overwhelm.

Quickbooks for self-employed people is a perfect tool for putting structure and process in place.

Yesterday while preparing for year-end closure and a new year income tax filing, i discovered that business expenses under $75 do not need a receipt.

While i have digital/photo receipts for everything, finding them is a different story.

This significantly helped me get completely caught up for YTD FY 2019.

Overcome or embrace boredom?

What is our go to choice? Day after day. Week after week. Year after year.

Overcome or embrace boredom?

Both.

It is a trick question.

Boredom is tricky.

So are life’s basics.

Spend your life being decently organized or get buried by your proverbial to-do-list and in-box.
