POTD – 33/365

Seems to be a trend, especially in music production social media circles, that you see plants among tech. Interesting. I think it an attempt to bring the starkness of tech to the organics of life… maybe to add an atmosphere of serenity.

Peace.

Keeping a diary, or journaling (as it is now called) is age-old. I decided to try and start two years ago, January, right before my dad passed. There are many merits to journaling (so many references on the net that I won’t post here) and for those I’ve read, they all seem it hit on the positive aspects.

There are plenty of journaling apps available but, again, I’ve decided to keep it old school for the tactile aspects of actually writing in a book, etc (everything doesn’t have to be in the cloud).

I’m trying again, but this time by focusing on this one tenet:

“Discipline begats discipline. Like a muscle, the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes.”

Have a great day.

“The name is Jupiter, from the galaxy
I came to meet you, to make you free
Deliver to you a flower from
A distant planet, from where I come”

Jupiter – Earth, Wind & Fire – from the album “All ‘n All”

Europa Clipper is just one of a handful (ok a little more than a handful) of NASA planetary missions I work on daily. It’s set to launch on (right now) the SLS (NASA’s Space Launch System) in 2022, performing a number of orbital trajectories and gravity assist flybys to get to Jupiter and explore atmosphere and oceans of the gas giant.

I’ve worked on data packages for one of the scientific instruments and the possible Europa Lander that will also visit Jupiter.

Talk about a “ride”…

Peace,
Fresh

Have you ever heard the term “hangry”? I get like that sometimes…. 🤣🤣🤣

Staying in the lane of training (the brain).

Movement•Recovery•Sleep•Nutrition•Mindset

These are five facets of training defined by Nike and are the five aspects that lie at the root of their latest podcast, “Training”.

We’ve all tried exercising, whether it be in or out of a gym, and have had our various levels of success and consistency. It can be a rollercoaster ride of sorts (as I can truly attest to). The key to consistency in training and exercise (or anything you’re trying to achieve in life) all begins with how you “train your brain”. The concept is not phenomenal at all, but is foundational. It has helped me, but I am nowhere near reaping the full benefits of such, but I definitely am enjoying the journey through learning and application. Here’s to greater success through extended discipline via “exercising” patience.

“Think” about it. Now, it’s pizza time.

Best,

Fresh

When you workout regularly, you stop looking at this as food and start looking at it like fuel.

I’m glad my mother taught me how to cook before I left for college, but now approach to cooking is so different as it is tied to diet and physical fitness. Strangely enough, it tastes better with a different outlook.

What inspired me is a book, that recently came out last year by Kevin Curry called Fit Men Cook. The references to it, his website, and IG feed are below.

Mangia!

Fresh!
