What to do when you're missing a piece of technology


I’m in Memphis.  I left my iPad in my car at the airport. 

Normally my morning routine is set up nicely:

1.      Read the Bible.
2.      Update my gratitude log (at least 3 items every morning).
3.      Journal
4.      Review my dream board.
5.      Affirmations.
6.      Record my daily goals and the day ahead.

All six items are set up on a single screen on my iPad.  I can do them quickly.

The key isn’t to do the exact same things I would have done on my iPad (the producti, but to do the same amount of productive things.

The Bible app is on my iPhone as well.  The journal, dream board and goals can be reached from my laptop as well as my iPad.  Affirmations are from the Ziglar website and can be set up as a desktop link on my laptop.

The gratitude app I use doesn’t save to the cloud.  I’ve been burned by this before (when I upgraded my iPad).  It might be time to find a new one.  That is something worthwhile that I can do today.  If I don’t have the time (because the other worthwhile activities have higher priority) I can write my gratitude log right here:

1.      I’m grateful for my iPad.  Sometimes not having something for a while lets you realize how much you use it.
2.      I’m grateful for direct flights from Cincinnati to Memphis. 
3.      For those times when I don’t have a direct flight – I’m grateful for the healthy dining options at the Atlanta airport.
4.      (Bonus)  I’m grateful for a chance to assess the things I was doing on the iPad and possibly find an even better way to do them.
