Tech – for Everyone

Tech Tips and Tricks & Advice – written in plain English.

Goodbye 2010. I’ll Miss Ye Not.

Not one person I have spoken too has seemed sad to see 2010 go, and I have not (yet) had anyone say to me, “it was my best year ever!” I think, for myself anyway, I’m just glad I made it through. Simply put, 2010 was not my best year.

But neither was it my worst. Just one example, this website, and my scribblings here, did okay in 2010. We are still here. Tech – for Everyone seemed to defy the general trend, and actually grew last year — attendance was up.

I do not know what 2011, and the future, holds. But I do know I am hoping for significant improvement — not just for me, but for you too, Dear Reader. Whatever it was that made 2010 a challenge for you, I sincerely, ardently, hope 2011 is the year your fortitude and efforts are rewarded and that those things get successfully resolved.

For lack of a specific “tech topic” today. I decided I would join the crowd, and post a Top 10 of 2010 list. (I know. I heard you shout “yippee!”) Below you will find the top T4E articles – by number of reads – of last year. I have to say, they are good ones.. and you may have missed one or two.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Did you make any “resolutions” this year? (I get the vague impression doing so is not the “vogue” any more.) I only made one. And I hope it will have a marked impact on my “life’s situation”. I (also) hope I am not boring you, but, I will go ahead and share it with you — I have challenged myself to keep one thought at the forefront of my mind and my behavior. (Think of it as a “mantra”, if you like.) It goes:

I Must Do The Most Productive Thing Possible With This Moment

(And to be honest.. I am fairly sure writing this article does not fit in with that…)
I have made little signs, and posted them around, to help me remember.

2011 is here. Let’s make the most of it. Shall we? I would like to say to each and everyone reading this — I wish you a safe, successful, and happy new year!

  1. Happy 2011 Paul:
    Thanks for this positive input…Where Do I/We Go From Here? … I’m sure we all ask ourselves that question, especially when our “to do list is brimming over”. pulling us in many directions.
    I like to call this kind of input a MANTRA, to mentally carry around with us, when our sticky notes/signs are not in view.

    “In This Moment”… is POWERFUL, it envelopes all aspects of our minute to minute psychic…

    Thanks Paul,for sharing this with us and Much Success in this coming year… for Tech For Everyone blog as well.

  2. All the best for the New Year, Paul.

    2010 wasn’t my best year either.

    Like you, I’m hoping 2011 will be better. Hope you have a good one.

    Paul :-)

  3. Good day to you Paul.

    I have a feeling that I’m not the only reader here who thought you were talking to me personally. That bold “you” in your article hit me like a ton of bricks.

    Living in the moment, making the most of each moment, or even simply “Be Here Now” are all good thoughts for everyone. I suggest that your mantra should be one that we all try on for size. Apathy is one of the worst things we can let creep into our lives.

    Thank you for this upbeat inspiring article, and I hope only the best for you in 2011.

    • KsTinMan,
      I am glad you felt I was talking directly to you… because I was.

      And I join you in encouraging the person reading this to consider “trying it on for size”.

      Apathy is one of the worst things we can let creep into our lives.” Oh, ho! You said a mouthful there.
