Be Lazy To Be Better

Most people that have known me since I was a little kid would gladly tell you without hesitating that I am a lazy person. I can remember being told this from family, friends, teachers, strangers, everyone! Generally, I used to just ignore this and move on with my life like I normally do. However, relatively recently, I realized how right they were and how happy that made me to hear this. Most of you might be wondering why anyone would get excited to be called lazy…

The Lost Art of Having Patience

We are losing our patience so much that I fear in the future our satisfaction and level of happiness will not be fulfilled because they happen to quickly. In the past we waited for hours, sometimes days, to have a meal, now we get impatient when something has to cook in the microwave for more than a minute. In the future I think we will be disappointed if we aren’t fed before we have the chance to feel hungry. Continue reading

Everything I Ever Needed To Know, I Learned Playing Video Games

Retro video game posterDon’t let the title fool you loyal readers. Video Games are not this writer’s sole source of education, but I will be damned if I said they didn’t help. For years I have had to endure the shameful glares that met me whenever I informed a non-gamer that I would be spending the next few hours feverishly playing any particularly addicting game. These ignorant glares from parents, girlfriends, the elderly, the Amish, or any other person are bred from the idea that Video Games have no particular value other then to entertain.

Being Successful: It’s Not Always Something Your Good At

Maybe it’s something your bad at.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told that I should do something simply because it’s something that I was good at. I feel like I have a lot of talents, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I want to be doing that thing for the rest of my life. For example; I was great at making subs at SubWay, but that sure as hell doesn’t mean that I want to do that for the remaining years of my life. Not at all. Continue reading

Free File Syncing Across Your Devices

A pretty common question that I get asked is how to sync your files to the web and other devices. I have one solution that I pretty much give to everyone, DropBox.

This service is tech as hell so you don’t have to be. In short, it works like this: DropBox creates folders on your computer that all behave like the normal folders you are used to, when you put files or other folders into these folders all of that stuff gets synced to the web. Install it, move some files or folders into DropBox, win. It is so super simple even computer idiots like my friends or mother can do it. Beyond the app’s extreme simplicity in terms of use, it is also a great solution because it works across pretty much every device. So, whether you are on a Mac, Windows, Linux, Android, iOS, or whatever, it still works! You can also access all of your files online from anyone’s computer, anywhere. Seriously, I don’t even use flash drives any more.

Some other great features from DropBox:
-2GB free
-File Versions (they keep backup files of your files, so if you accidentally erase or save over something, you can restore it)

Have you used DropBox before? Let us know what you liked most about it or some cool ways you have found to use it in the comments section below.
