That Song In Your Head

How do you get rid of that song running around in your head?
Queue it up on Spotify and play the entire thing?
Pull up the lyrics and sing at the top of your lungs?
Replace it with another?

The Song That You Don’t Want in Your Head

The problem that too many people have is that they have a song in their heads that will never go away.
It goes like this:
“Me, Me. Meeee!”
We are here for others, not ourselves.
Think about others, do for others, and the world will improve.

The One Common Denominator for Success

You’ll see it on every talent related TV show.
Every contestant starts with a low level and gains more of it as they get more approval and feedback.
What is this one thing?
Grow your confidence and you’ll grow your success. Know that you can do it and do it well and it will show.
Be careful! Too much confidence and you’ll get a big head full of hubris.
Pepper your confidence with people who keep you grounded and you’re bound for success and happiness.

iPod Minimal Controls Are Confusing

Got an iPod Shuffle (gen4) in the mail yesterday for taking a survey or something.

Put music and podcasts on it. But went out on a bike ride and could only hear music. How do I get to the podcasts?

There’s two buttons on the side. One for Voice Over, one for power on/off, play all and shuffle (3 positions).

On the front we have play/pause, volume up, volume down, track forward/fast forward and track back/back fast.

Which button would you hit to switch playlists?

I tried them all.

It was not until I came back to my computer and pulled up the manual that I learned how to do it.

Press the VoiceOver button, then track back/ trackforward to switch between the playlists.

That wasn’t very intuitive!!

I think Apple minimized the controls on this thing too much!

Na Na to Ga Ga

I’ll say it – I don’t like Lady Ga Ga.

And, judging by the way she acts, I’m really surprised that she calls herself a Lady!

She does not behave in a lady like manner.

If I ignore her, will she go away?

Zac Brown is Getting Deeper

Last year the Zac Brown band had a hit with “Toes”

This year Zac and Jimmy Buffett sing “Knee Deep”

Next year I’m guessing he’ll get in up to his waist!
