Chit Chat

Three Suggestions for Making Chit-Chat
1. Try remembering F.O.R.D. to improve your small talk:
  • Family
  • Occupation
  • Recreation
  • Dreams
Here is the link to the full article on this topic.

2. Tell someone what I read recently, which is that "it is impossible to hum with your nose plugged”.

3. Challenge Someone Else to Write a Book
When you hear what someone is passionate about challenge them to capture their thoughts on the subject and get them to try to make money from their ideas.

Lately, when I talk to people outside the blogging world and they hear that I think of myself as being tech-savvy, they tend to ask for advice on using their iStuff.  Someone should write a book on the subject of "So you’re wealthy enough to own an iPad / iPhone but you don’t know how to use it" for all the people out there who are tech-silly.

Here is my first draft of an outline for this book: 
  • First, learn the Settings App inside and out.  You should know all of the settings inside of the Settings App like they were your children.
  • Using the App Store
    • Utilities

  • Finding new apps
  • Best Apps for Word Processing
  • Best Apps for Drawing or otherwise using the iPad as a writing surface
  • Best Apps for Note Taking
  • Best Apps for Being More Productive 
  • Best Apps for Entertainment
  • Best Apps for Education
  • Best Accessories to Buy
    • Case or cover to protect the screen of an iPad
    • Bluetooth keyboard

  • Etc.
