Choose to Run Through the Rain

We took our kids out to dinner and a show last night at Universal Studios Citywalk. It was a blast. We went to see the Blue Man Group, which was 2/3 of our kids’ first time at a real theater show. The oldest one had seen something before on a field trip in Kindergarten. Blue Man Group is fun and pretty clean for the entire family. If you get a chance, it’s worth it to go see them.

After the show was over, we were leaving the theater when I noticed the familiar sound of raindrops hitting the Florida ground outside. For a split second, I thought, “No!!!!!!” Our car was a loooooong way away from where we were, and there was no way to stay covered and dry during the walk back. The crowd was standing under the cover, and we knew that everyone was calculating what we were…should we wait it out or make a run for it in the rain?

I Heart my GoPro

I’m not sure if I’m the only one, but I am a binge technology user. I get into a habit of using a specific gadget and then neglect the other “must-have” things that I bought a few months earlier.

I wonder if I’m the only one like that. I doubt it.

Do Something Together

I don’t know if you’re family is like mine, but we have so many distractions that it isn’t funny. If we are not very intentional, we will spend our entire lives on electronics.

I’m as big of a tech fan as anyone, but I want to use it to bring me closer to my family. I don’t want it to put us all in our own little worlds so we never have to talk to each other. My son will sit and watch Minecraft videos on Youtube while I check out Facebook or email or any number of other things, and my other son will play the Wii U all day if you let him.

I believe that to build stronger families we need to be intentional about spending time together.

Workflow App Increases Productivity

One of my favorite podcasts is Mac Power Users. A while ago, they were talking about a new app that was coming out soon. That App was called Workflow. Well, it’s been out for a while now, and I’ve been loving playing with it to make myself more productive. The other day I was on an airplane for hours, and I used the time to play around and create a number of workflows.

Workflow is an Application for iOS that let’s you automate certain tasks or do them with the touch of a button. There are many, many things you can do with the application.
