Resilient: After All This Years

My desktop is broken. My long-term partner in crime, finally lay to rest. Though it is not technically mine (my wife bought it from her freelance work), she is well loved and used. I think the time has really come for her to say goodbye. She earned a lot of respect and in monetary aspects as well.

My computer is a quad core MSI machine. Well she is really an old model but hey, it was a good run. A lot of mock ups was produced and a thousand lines of codes are already been delivered. A lot of pictures was processed, filtered and altered.Designs that became inspiration, blog posts to be monitored and replied. Words had pressed, links that been clicked and videos that been streamed.The desktop that has been a witness to every logs and cached that have been stored.

So, where am I blogging anyway? To our new unit, an ASUS laptop. i5 core and a whole lot better than the died soldier. We need a better unit anyway. I will just keep this post simple and short for a moment of silence on my desktop.

3AM Thoughts: What is Next?

Life

The struggle is real, it’s really hard to maintain a blog. You need time to write and conceptualize about it, to proofread read it (I am not doing this, do not copy) and revise it. I normally do what is on my mind and publish it. That is why sometimes, even I do not know what I am talking about when I visit my blog.

The struggle is real.

It’s exactly 3:20 am in the Philippines and its summer time and it’s hot even in mornings.

What is Next? There are a lot of incoming events and projects in the coming months. We already activated our internet connection for the longest time we only rely on mobile data and it is good to know that we already have a working internet connection, it is not that reliable all the time but it is working.

The election is also coming, and I will not discuss it here, who I will vote.

I am 50% set for my online endeavours. I am just completing the blanks. More of the details on that in the coming days, the road to online life (again).

Me and my wife also half completing the seminar for Couples for Christ community in our church. I am very excited on this one since we have at least time to learn something more about our faith/religion, this some real talk we have here.

I am doing well with my work also. Though it’s becoming tiring at some point but if I will not do this, who will? I am building up for something big in the organization, looking forward that I would pass the “internship”. Though it is not formally announced but it is something near to that situation.

There are a lot of juicy details that will be uncovered in the coming weeks and I am very optimist that I will pull it off correctly this time.

Hopefully I can set my priorities right and onward to the success. It will be dentist day tomorrow so I shall go to bed. 3:32AM and end.

Balancing the two is a tough task, it’s never been that easy to balance it as balance it could take, and there is always a side greater than the other. Juggling your task as a father and your deadlines is not always the same every day. Each day has its unique pros and cons plus the fact that you need to rest a bit to breathe.

Here are some tips that could at least help you on your time management.

 

  1. Give time to work on your professional task and make that time sacred to you.
  2. Minimize distractions, have manageable time schedule of your work. Work when they are asleep or in school and give your time to them when they needed you.
  3. Play with your kids, this gives you time to sweat a little and get you blood circulation going.
  4. Network your business outside; this would make your time precious instead of calling out in your home that, network your business outside.
  5. Have time with your wife, talk to her regarding opinions and current events. One way or another you can get something to write or to inspire.
  6. Family is always your priority, spend time with them and this could be a good time to be inspired.

 

These are just few of the tips that I could give, you can bend each of them according to your situation at home. Sticking to these tips or to your formulated one, will be a factor to your success.
