Just having fun with a review here but I think there’s a message worth sharing.
It is not exactly a new story but I have been pushing myself to try harder, work smarter, and create something that matters. While my internal passion seems to be the ‘flux capacitor” that fuels my engine, the external influences certainly can smooth out (or increase) the friction in the machine. The simple message is that you can decide to convert the external influences to smooth out the friction around you and not deflate you.
This morning, my internal voices were wrestling. The “I need more rest” voice was attempting to make his case to the “let’s get it done” voice, when I noticed my Personal Distraction Device (smart phone) was popping with some of the never ending notifications. One app, Samsung Push Service, needed approval. Well this app only “pushes” notifications to my screen, but I chose to see the story differently. With a name like “Push Service” this distraction could be redefined to be a “push” service. The “let’s get it done” voice jumped on that one.
With that in mind, I decided to have some fun with it a bit and wrote a review of the app:
Thanks for the push Samsung! The days were getting shorter and the nights were becoming darker. It was like coming to the concrete wall at the end of a dead-end alley. The last unbroken overhead light just barely flickering, and I could see the loose dogs heading my way. I could barely take another breath and needed to keep going. It seemed like there was no possible way to go. And then came the push from Samsung! It was like the sunrise brightly rising from the East! Music started slowly and then louder..thanks for the PUSH, Samsung!
See it differently. Make new rules. Reduce the friction. Enjoy!
