Mushroom Coffee

About to have my first @foursigmatic mushroom coffee with cordyceps and chaga. Will post any positive or negative effects in comments. 

I am quickly becoming a shroom convert, the legal kind! My next task will be to make my own mushroom logs.


My laptop has been down and gone for about a week and a half. I have been working using my iPhone and iPad. But, there are just some things that I can’t accomplish using those devices. It’s been kind of nice! Here are a few positive side effects of not having a laptop. 1. Figured out some new apps on the iPad. It’s hard to do to finger typing for in-depth work on the iPad. I’ve been using some notes apps and writing apps that are very useful. Now I need a good organization App. 

 2. Visual planning. I got a big drawing pad and a bunch of colored sharpies and wrote out or drew my strategic plan for the year. I even uploaded this plan to our company website as a picture. No text.

 3. I picked up the phone! So easy in this day and age to just keep bouncing emails back-and-forth between people. But, that is less easy when you have to to finger type everything on the iPad. So, I have been picking up the phone and calling people to resolve issues or set up long-term plans. Definitely a change I will be keeping.
I will be getting my laptop back today. I am hoping to be more productive, and yet not forget the lessons of the great laptop drought of 2017.

Mushroom coffee

Okay, am I a total marketing pawn? Sure. But, I am thinking of trying out the mushroom coffee from @foursigmatic . I like the idea of decreasing the caffeine content and the acidity. 
On a related note, my dentist just told me my Seltzer is eating away my enamel. Anyone have a pH meter I can use to look at the acidity of my water?

I am using Siri to write this as I walk around the casino. Forgive any Errors. I don’t have enough time to proofread.Bit of a weird situation, since my first night in Vegas is for a business meeting. Flew out. Had a big company dinner until about nine. And basically went back to my room and went to bed. Woke up at 4 AM did some work and head to the gym. My take on the casino, is that there isn’t enough gambling. I realize that probably sounds weird.  casino is basically restaurants and shops. There’s actually very little gambling going on. I guess my time and casinos was back in the late 80s and early 90s when It was about to gambling.

I blame the election. 

I had a number of dissatisfying meetings or lack of meetings this week. Customers who have asked me to drop everything and provide last minute quotes, those who blew off training and then asked for additional training, some people who asked for help with grants. This week those same people wouldn’t return my calls or emails. 

I blame it on the election. Whether that is actually the reason or not, I think the important thing is to remember that everyone has their own life. You never know whether someone just lost an election, or found out a loved one is ill, or maybe they just had too much of a good time last night. Regardless, keep in mind that what you might view as a slight is probably just preoccupation.
