Getting In Touch With Your Inner Twitter

Inner Twitter aims to bring peace and healing to our busy schedules. Inner Twitter is a modern day twist on an ancient Buddhist custom that David Brazier observed while in Vietnam. From the site...
I was rereading David Brazier's excellent book The Feeling Buddha and in it he tells a wonderful story about a community where everyone stopped on the 15 minute chime of a town clock to engage in a brief meditation. I thought what a perfect application for Twitter! And here it is. We don't all live in the same village and we don't all hear the same clock, but through the modern miracle of technology we can virtually all pause and truly appreciate our lives, for just a moment.
So now, through the use of Twitter, Inner Twitter sends a chime to the you at the time of your choosing...every 15 minutes, every hour or once a day. Its not an actual is a SMS message that says *chime*. I signed up yesterday for the once an hour chime and I have found Inner Twitter very useful. When working under stress, I tend to become hunched over my keyboard, all muscles tensed and breathing shallowly. Using Inner Twitter reminds me every hour to stretch, take a breath, smile and refocus my energy. Inner Twitter is a moment of peace amidst the chaos of the busy lives we lead. Note: because the message come through SMS you may only want to use this service if you have unlimited texting.



Baddie: What NOT to delete on your computer :(

I'm sure everyone but me knows this, but just in case there is one other person out there who is as big a dingbat as I am, one piece of advice... don't ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER! delete the contents out of the "profile" folder for Firefox. SCREAM! CRY! KICK! I was overworking my poor Mac by filling it too full so I decided to get rid of some stuff and give Mac a little breathing room. I was just deleting away old .zips and .dmgs and such and for some stupid reason I thought the stuff in that folder looked like stuff I didn't need?!?!?! I just can't believe I did it! I lost my ScribeFire and my StumbleUpon toolbar. I had all my bookmarks perfectly organized which I can redo but what kills me most is losing 100 to 150 post ideas I had bookmarked. Oh well, live and learn I guess :)

On the up side, here is a great quote I read on Twitter (follow me) and I'm sorry to whoever posted it because I can't remember who you were but it went something like this...

"How would the you you want to be do what the you you are now is about to do?"
It took me a minute to get it but once I did, it is just stuck in my head and really motivating me to be the person I want to be now, instead of in some distant future that never arrives.



Just Give Me a Minute to Jott That Down...

I love Jott! Jott is an automated voice to text service that allows users to call Jott and easily and safely send emails and text messages, set reminders, organize lists, and post to web services with their voice. I use Jott almost everyday, sometimes more than once. Jott is a like having a personal assistant to keep track of everything you need to do. I use Ping for routine reminders but Jott is perfect for everything else. I have the number programmed into speed dial on my cell phone so I can Jott while driving which is usually when I think of something I need to write down. I push the speed dial button, Jott answers and the dialogue goes like this...
Jott: Who do you want to Jott? Me: Myself. Jott: Jott yourself (beep) Me: Pick Kyle up from football practice. Jott: Got it. Would you like a reminder? Me: Yes. Jott: What day? Me: Tomorrow. Jott: What time? Me: 5. Jott: AM or PM? Me: PM. Jott: Got it. Setting reminder for August 1st at 5 pm.
Jott will then send me an email reminder and about 15 minutes before the scheduled task, Jott will send me a text reminder on my cell phone. Its so handy! I have Jotted errands, I have Jotted phone numbers, I have Jotted songs I want to download...any many more things. You can even set up teams and Jott whole groups of people such as an organization, committee or your entire family. Even more impressive is the fact that you can use Jott in conjunction with other cool web services. There are too many to list, check them out here. I don't know how I lived without it! Remember though that its not perfect and sometimes misunderstands some words, usually names. Also if your driving and you forget your Jotting and a dog runs out in front of you and you call it some unsavory names, you might get a funny Jott reminder in your email...don't ask me how I know ;)
