What do you do when the power is out? How do you function? How do you keep things moving?
Whether in the home or on the job, how do you function with no technology?
This is a time when priorities are of the utmost importance. If you don’t know when power will be restored, what are the most important and pressing tasks to accomplish with your technology? Do you have a contingency plan for it? Should you have a plan?
I always keep a list of things that must be accomplished and the order in which to do so. However, when the power is out, I have to review that list for re-prioritization. Why? Not all require the use of technology/power. I handle the most pressing issue that requires technology (tablet, computer, phone) first.
This also makes me think of the cloud. There are pros and cons. I think mostly pros when your tablet has its own data source. Even more of a pro when your phone tethers at no extra cost (Thanks Verizon!). With a data source and tethering capabilities, my tablet, computer and phone keep me connected as long as they have power. The main con with the cloud is no data source. To help keep your most pressing documents updated on the cloud and accessible always, keep a backup copy on your desktop, phone or tablet.
It all goes back to prioritizing tasks because power can run out before all power is restored.
Just a random thought because I have spent most of the morning without power. I am glad that I enjoy reading. I am glad that I keep up with the latest technologies. I am glad that I enjoy the pleasure of my own company, too. When all is silent, what do you do?

A healthy outlook on life is wonderful.
When we allow ourselves to learn from others and experiences, our view of things can improve for the better. We respect the opinions of others. We listen and welcome their view.
I was talking with a friend and recognized my own growth. Things that would have irritated me a few years ago have no affect on me now. I have little to no commentary on some things. I view news pieces and other things to gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom. I really don’t have a desire for the negative pieces that seem to just tear down others. I would rather view errors as an opportunity to learn and grow.
So, I like this picture because it let me know that when I grow, “I” know.
Kreatively Synt in peace!
Earlier, I was thinking, “I haven’t read blogs in a while. Why don’t I have time?” My response, “You don’t make time to do some of the things you enjoy. Just stop and do it.”
I am really enjoying reading blogs I follow via WordPress. I won’t be able to get through them all but will focus on two that I really enjoy – Amdin Renegade and Smartblogs (great article – http://smartblogs.com/leadership/2015/03/16/to-succeed-today-you-need-wisdom/).
I recently read some other great posts. While it may have been a week or two ago, they were great. I enjoy reading. It’s one of my passions. To get lost in knowledge is enjoyable.
Take some time to do things that you enjoy. It’s rewarding.

Experience is a good teacher if you allow yourself to be taught. I have discovered skills and gifts within me that I never noticed because I was so busy only embracing what I did know. When I walked out of my comfort zone by walking away from the known, I discovered another aspect of the “me” God created me to be. -Kreatively Synt
Your gifts don’t always show up immediately, God uses your experiences to draw out of you skills and giftings you didn’t even know you had! “Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.” 2 Chron. 15:7 -T.D. Jakes
