Priorities List Update

October 29, 2009

I feel like I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of money lately.  Whatever. I think. So far, it’s pretty much all been in the name of getting done the things I planned.  So here’s an update on my Inventory & List of Priorities: I bought an iPhone 3GS after work yesterday.  At the mall.  Willowbrook […]

Saturday’s Hike: Recap

October 27, 2009

On Friday night I mentioned that Saturday’s hike would probably be a short one.  It wasn’t.  Here’s the story: Let me begin with a digression, though: All that stuff I talked about last week in my Inventory & Priorities posts – the things I’m looking to get out of moving toward my goals (emotionally, spiritually; […]

No Post Today

October 26, 2009

It’s now twenty after one in the ante meridian on Monday, and I promised one of my co-workers (albeit only a few hours ago) that I’d be in the office at 8, so that means there’s really no time for me to blog. Today was a beautiful day in NNJ.  I spent quite a bit […]

Today’s Hike: Esther and Whiteface

October 23, 2009

Well, I’m here.  At the Starbucks in Lake Placid NY.  I’m “checked in” at the hostel – which means I’ve picked up my key from the mailbox and claimed a bunk by putting my bag on it – and I’ve had dinner.  So what’s left to do except write to you, dear reader? My mind […]

Saturday’s Hike 10-24-2009

October 23, 2009

Saturday morning I’ll be hiking Whiteface and Esther Mountains in the Adirondacks.  They’ll be numbers 3 and 4 of 46 for my Adirondack 46ers patch. View Larger Map I wasn’t kidding when I put those last few posts together.  I’m getting a move-on.  It’s now 11:44 in the post meridian on Thursday night, and I’m […]

Google Wave

October 22, 2009

Subtitle:  “One in a Million” If you’re on Google Wave, feel free to ping me and we’ll connect. After much searching and querying of my cyber-friends, I finally received a Google Wave invitation this morning.  Mammoth thanks go out to my buddy Ed Pirone, who effected the hookup.  Don’t try to find Ed and […]

Inventory & List of Priorities (3,4)

October 21, 2009

The wrecking is complete, please continue the checking: So I think that in my last post I basically covered numbers three and four of my prioritization process, but for the sakes of continuity, repetition and closure, I’ll cover them once more: 3.  After that, I’m going to put those groups into an order of priority […]

Inventory & List of Priorities (2a)

October 20, 2009

Please continue checking the wrecking; we’re almost there. So I’ve made my list and I’ve organized it.  And here’s what I’ve got so far: I’m leaving off the “Gig” topic for now.  There’s a lot to it that I need to spend more time researching and thinking about. Two of those points (Attorney & Teaching) […]

Inventory & List of Priorities (2)

October 18, 2009

Check it as I continue to wreck it. I reorganized my list into groups of things that are like each other.  And then I did it again.  What I came up with were three main ideas:  things I want to do, things I want to do, things I want to have and “Gig”.  Here’s the […]

Inventory & List of Priorities (1)

October 15, 2009

Ok.  Check it as I wreck it: I’ve been all over the place lately.  Looking for instant gratification in all the wrong places.  Well, the right places, but instant gratification isn’t what I need; I get too wrapped up in it and forget about long-term goals. So here’s my plan:  I’m going to do an […]
