Personal Update 201412 | 31 December 2014 | Wednesday
I hope you’re doing well and ready for 2015. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update.
Technology. As I head into the new year, I’m utilizing various multi-platform technologies. This allows me to access my data across multiple computing platforms including Apple, Windows, Linux, Google Chrome OS, Android, and AmazonFire. I’d previously been using proprietary Apple software and solutions that required very costly equipment to run. I’ve intentionally shifted to software and apps that will run on just about any computer or device. This allows me to be more proficient when assisting people with a wider variety of devices. It also reduces the negative impact of discontinued hardware, companies in crisis, diminished customer service, or other industry disruptions. LibreOffice is available in Windows, Apple, and Linux versions. Compatible iOS and Android apps are also available. Google Chrome runs on a wide variety of computers and devices. Evernote has software for numerous mobile devices and computers. A variety of other cross-platform applications are also available.
Wellness. I’m continuing to develop my personal wellness protocol and hope to document it more in the months to come. My preliminary findings suggest that the wellness program can have a very positive impact on factors like blood pressure and blood glucose levels. I’ve been riding my bicycle most days, even during the colder weather.
Writing. I’ve been busy this month writing technology articles, consumer related articles, and creating posts on the ResourcesForLife.com website. Most recently I wrote an article about The Interview, a controversial film that’s been in the news for several months.
Workload. These past few months have been very busy with expanded responsibilities on all fronts. So, I’m working on ways to be more efficient and effective with all I do. If you’ve written and haven’t received a response after a few days, or longer, feel free to send me a reminder. I’m hoping to get caught up over the holidays.
Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
Origins. For those of you who are new to these monthly personal updates, they began over a decade ago out of a desire to share from my personal life about topics of lifeways, health, career, finances, relationships, effective living, and activism. This is based on the life map presented on the Resources For Life website.
