The Most Dangerous Thing You Can Do While “Multitasking”

So true. Please enable “DND while driving” on your phone! Both the iPhone and Android have the feature. I’ve been using it since I updated to iOS 11, and it works well. Just getting the notifications I found was a distraction, and since I can still get calls from my “favorites” it’s been a huge help.

Amor Fati

I really like this post on A Stoic Response to Bad News, but just wanted to call out the philosophy of “amor fati”… which if truth be told I could stand to implement more often. Anyway, what does “amor fati” mean?

  • Love your fate
  • With it you feel that everything happens for a purpose, and that it is up to you to make this purpose something positive and active.
  • Do not seek for things to happen the way you want them to; rather, wish that what happens happen the way it happens: then you will be happy.
  • Treating each and every moment—no matter how challenging—as something to be embraced, not avoided. To not only be okay with it, but love it and be better for it.

    2. Consider your partners fears
    3. Know your numbers
    4. Make a plan and trust the plan
