The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Mark Twain’s quotes

1. If I had more time, I would have written a shorter letter.

2. Most conversations are monologues in the presence of a witness.

3. There are two important days in your life – the day you were born and the day you know


Internet 3.0

The Industrial Internet is the integration of physical, sometimes complex machinery, with sensors and software. For instance, General Electric, just a couple days ago, invested $2 billion to build software for the health care industry. Clearly, even the most prominent companies have caught on to this idea of having “smart” everything to create a new digital experience with humans.

Quantified Self – self quantification is the tracking of daily activities through technologies, delivering back to the user some “performance” analytics. The data and metrics help the user alter a behavior in order to self-improve.

The next technological leap – whether we call it the Internet of Things, Web 3.0 or Ubicomp (that’s ‘ubiquitous computing’ to you and me) – will be about getting the web off the screen and embedded in the things of your everyday life.
