The internationally known philosopher and sage P.T. Barnum had this wise counsel to share.
Unless a man enters upon the vocation intended for him by nature, and best suited to his peculiar genius, he cannot succeed.
My translation of that statement would be find out what your actually good at and focus most of your attention on doing that.
P.T. your thoughts…
Do not scatter your powers. Engage in one kind of business only, and stick to it faithfully until you succeed, or until your experience shows that you should abandon it. A constant hammering on one nail will generally drive it home at last, so that it can be clinched. When a man’s undivided attention is centered on one object, his mind will constantly be suggesting improvements of value, which would escape him if his brain was occupied by a dozen different subjects at once.
ugly and expensive, great combo…
The Level 10 M Mouse is said to be the first in a line of Level 10 PC peripherals. The open design, the metal casing, the love-it-or-hate-it design, it’s all very reminiscent of the Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. mouse sans the gaming-specific additions like adjustable thumb rest and optional weights. Still, the Level 10 M Mouse is unique. A set screw can adjust the height. The top platform is perforated for passive hand cooling while the hollow design helps with air flow.
There’s no word when this mouse will hit the market or the target price. High-end gaming mice can cost well north of $100. With the Level 10 case as a pricing barometer, the Level 10 M Mouse could hit $200.
Sit at a desk all day long sweating over a red hot wireless keyboard? Then take a break, stand up and remember you have legs.
BreakTime is a simple utility that’s designed to help you remember to take breaks away from your computer. It never forgets a break, running in your dock and / or menu bar (or even in the background).
PaperPort Notes by Nuance Communications does a lot of stuff…
It does text, drawing and voice to text. Oh yeah and it’s free.
The folks from Nuance Communications, the provider of Dragon voice recognition, have released their free iPad notes app – PaperPort Notes. A notes app that has a little bit of something for everyone. The app is light enough to be happy with it if you where to only use one notes capture method while still offering all the options without complicated endless menus to go through.
PaperPort Notes has the concept of a pile of pages of paper, inside of grouped stacks. Each page can be treated as an individual enhanced page so you aren’t stuck with one note type through the whole group of pages.
The idea behind hot desking is that each employee is not assigned a particular desk, but rather given a variety of places to work within an office that might include desks, casual seating areas, conference spaces, or a cafe. Many times, there are actually less desks than employees.
So I work for a university from my home office.That is to say I have a desk but most of the time I’m not at working from my desk, I’m either working in the living room or on the dining room table.
My office is paperless so I don’t have to drag around a printer or a bunch files with me, so I can literally work anywhere. All I need is my Macbook, WiFi and some good green tea.

I was in Lake Worth Texas last week on a business trip and the Holiday Inn Express I was staying at actually had decent WiFi!
I was actually able to watch Netflix’s on my iPad without it stuttering.
It should be a crime that a hotel can charge you 15 bucks a day for a dial up connection claiming it’s “high speed internet”.
