Dunno myself. Most times it seems they work like sympathy or support icons.

Had a tooth pulled by complex, expensive surgery today. According to the docs it was to the best. According to me, it was costly, painful (not by much) and groggy-minded. That was the entire todo list for today. The rest, some reading and catching up, is bonus.

Default July 2020 Marker Reminder

Hi World of PsychCentral,

This thread migrated from Barbara Sher's forums before she closed that site. A few months after that she died. The Mother of Modern Coaching, more than anyone else she nudged many fench-sitting wannabee creatives of all varieties into action. RIP Barbara, you won your long rest the hard way.

I like to mark the start of a new month as a month is a decent cadence for many. A week, day, or hour may work better for you.

Quote:
“Perfection of effort is not required, by the way. It is the consistency of attempting to work these tools that brings the progress. It’s like anything else. If I want to tone muscle, lifting a ten-pound weight a few times every day will move me toward my goal much quicker than hoisting a fifty-pound barbell once a week. Yes, it really is true: “Slow and steady wins the race.” Just try a little, every day. You’ll see.” ― Holly Mosier on Goodreads

Default Re: A few Measly Steps a Day

I'm doing something that - for me - is really hard . I wish SquarePegGuy was around because this involves photography. And it's nowhere near as challenging as what you're facing, Revu2, but it's hard for me. I'm trying to host a photography contest on Facebook. - coral reef photos. In order to do that, I need to know what to tell the contestants. So I need to know what KDP needs for the photo, so I'm trying Canva.com to try to get a photo that will work for KDP. This is all convoluted, since the best layout for KDP doesn't include the title and name of the author on the front cover. ????? That means I have to add words to the photo. But I can't do it in word, because word docs have poor resolution, so I have to add words to a JPG, hence trying Canva. This ain't going to be easy. I'm glad that I wrestled with photography when I wrote The Molly Chronicles, because I did learn some things that are helpful for this. I tried using Photoshop once, but couldn't figure out enough of it to be useful.

I hope this isn't an exercise in frustration. A good chunk of yesterday was spent spouting cuss words. I'm really going to have to get a handle on that habit. The baby next door doesn't need to hear #$%@.

Happy stepping along, everyone.

I had good intentions, but did not meet my three goals. It’s okay, that’s why I’m now in this forum. I’m trying to create these three new habits. I can do this!

Yes, you can, Noexcuses2020,

By the way, 100 oz of water sounds like an awful lot! If you did more than you would have done otherwise, you are ahead of the game because you challenged yourself.

Me - I did figure out how to add words to a JPG in canva. So that's a step closer to my goal. The next step is to try to use what I made in KDP's cover creator. At the moment, I can't get into cover creator. I got an email asking me if I'd changed anything in KDP, so I probably can't get into it because they think I'm a hacker. I procrastinated all morning, and now I will try to get into cover creator and use the photo with the words I added. If I can do that, I'm ready to host my contest. For me this is all very challenging and frustrating. Okay, here goes.

It's working! I'm almost done and ready to post the contest. I just want to take my time and make sure I don't have any mistakes.

Well, the post is on Facebook, so that's good. The bad news - I can't find my own timeline. The contest is on Molly's page. (Molly was my dog.) I'll try to untangle the mess tomorrow. If you haven't figured out, I'm not very adept at social media.

Default July 6 Check-in

Hi Crew. Noexcuses2020, luv that handle! Welcome in. This stuff is harder than it ever seems.
Delightful, delighted that you figured out how to get at least the contest stuff posted. Somewhere in Facebook land is your timeline. Ask Mark Z.
My client is having another Big Meeting with the Mayor's staff tomorrow to review our deadlock.

Meanwhile, I noticed one tire was low today. There's been a lot of construction about my place so I want to take it to Discount Tire for a complete check-up. Hoped to do that today, but they were booked. Tomorrow after my other meeting.
That'll cover 24 hours for me.
