Teach someone(something) to be as good or better than you. Teach them to be as responsible or more responsible than you. To use those skills for good. for the benefit of all kind, not just mankind. Teach them to be respectful of their environment and the things and people around them. Teach them to allow other people and places to grow in their own way without judgement. Teach them what's acceptable and what's not acceptable for the places they are.

Driving a vehicle with mechanical issues up hill, on a dangerous cliff-side road with potholes and falling rocks. Children in the back that were OK at the beginning of the trip.. now screaming, throwing fits and every moment or two, saying "are we there yet?" or "I want a treat!" and wanting you to stop everything and take the time to explain fully what the latest is, and "why" we're not there yet.

Take your focus off the road and the goal to explain it to them. Then, a few moments after you get back on that road and start navigating it, rinse and repeat.

You're obligated and honor bound not to throw the children off the cliff, and you're doing your best to do the longer than expected drive to the goal. You've even vowed not to take on any more children until you unload these ones properly and fix your vehicle.

Are we there yet? ..and oh "how long is a piece of string?".

I really enjoyed the series.  Here's a snip from the Wiki on Towel Day.  **That reminds me, I'll have to add it to the CSS Framework I'm working on.

  • I don't need a different email address for every different project, I only need one personal, one business, and one general business.
  • 3 pixels matters, but not when it comes at the cost of the project timeline.
  • My ideas are good enough the first one or two tries at it, and any more than that is a waste of new ideas.
  • I have too many projects that are unfinished needing direction and time put to them.
  • It's impossible to have only ONE project on the go at a time, but juggling them has to be defined better.
  • My metabolism is slow and directly related to my food intake and gastro issues.
  • Focus.  Focus.. FOCUS!

I found that very small screens had an issue with embedded YouTube videos.  The skin applied was the responsive one, and works great at all levels except the VERY small.  That's where it broke out of the parent container.

Apparently my OBDII cable driver was the culprit.  Once I replaced the driver and gave the van power off our battery pack, it coughed up a series of codes that told me I have 2 injectors out, and need both O2 sensors.  This is great news, since I thought I had an issue with the ECU.  I now have one spare, and may consider selling it since I've also seen the cover available online to replace the one I damaged.

These are the injectors I'm going to get (if you suggest not doing it, let me know in the comments part below.)

I'm a big fan of procrastination, of distraction and not doing work that I have to do on a day to day basis and it's killing both my personal life and my business.

Here's how I'm fixing it, and it's working.

I woke up this past monday (posted about it) and realized I had and am wasting so much time it's really unbelievable.  So.. What I did was simply took it upon myself to do one thing at a time, without thinking about it.  What little thought I did actually do for the tasks that I have in a giant pile before me is to determine if it was something that could be done while I did something else (like an automated task or a waiting period that had to happen) and then did the next thing in line to get it moving.

Now, I feel productive and it feels like a self fulfilling destiny thing.  It feels like I'm building the proper habit to get into the groove again.  It feels.. Good.
