The Monday Morning Quote #507

“Life changes in the instant. The ordinary instant.

You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends.”

Tech stasis?

John Naughton writing about last week’s “Apple Special Event”.

“But maybe we’ve arrived at what Charles (Arthur) calls — “a sort of tech stasis”. Many of the things we have are now Good Enough, and so despite Moore’s Law and the wonders of computational photography, etc. we don’t need to upgrade them every year, or every two years.”

“Doing the right thing is aways difficult. Very few worthwhile things are achieved easily. If you believe that you are doing the right thing, you must find the resilience and staying power to keep trying.”

Ken Jarrold (from Other People’s Shoes)

The Monday Morning Quote #505

“The first step toward personal autonomy is to stop seeking others’ approval and simply do what you think is right.”

Alan Weiss

Sometimes you just have to stop and take your brain out.

Recently I had a Tuesday 4am wakeup to get the 7am flight to Edinburgh. All the way there I was thinking about a series of articles for which I had missed a deadline the day before. When in Edinburgh I stay with Jon and Lisa, my brother and sister-in-law, dermatologists both, Tuesday is a home day for them, Jon for reading and writing (he’s an academic), Lisa has a 4 day a week NHS contract and chooses not to get involved in private practice.

They go to the gym on Tuesday so I joined in and used the swimming pool for an hour.

I sat on my own tried to write again, no joy.

Watched a couple of movies in the evening and relaxed. Funny how much easier it can be in other people’s homes.

Had an early night, got up at 5.30am. Opened laptop, the words flowed, job done.

Sometimes you just have to stop and take your brain out  – but it’s knowing when to do it that matters.
