How I try to simplify and manage my life
After holidaying with me in South Africa for a month, my son made some notes and suggested it would be of great interest to neurologists …and no-one would ever believe a day in my life. So here are some of his (and my) brief notes (points) on change in basic living habits.
“He needs a daily routine. What he does to complete each set task/activity and the reason he does it this way.”
* Have no distractions
* Give me no choices (the KISS principle = “keep it simple, s”)
* be single-minded and totally focussed on the immediate task at hand (with no distractions/and/or interruptions)
* no multi-tasking for me, like walking and talking!
* am not at all observant, so absorbed on a task I take very little notice of my surroundings (not walking too straight)#
Unlike Frank in
My dear wife (and close friends) often say (and said) living with me (“Demon King” on his scooter) was just like a day in Frank’s life (rather eventful)!
* I definitely need routines – ANY change in living arrangements “totally throws” me!
So the “holiday” in South Africa, whilst hugely enjoyable seeing my family was rather stressful at times.
# “Twelve hours in Hong Kong” – now there’s a book in itself!
S said I should start that new book and I’d make a million…even if it’s only in Italian lire, perhaps!
So , I guess, I’ll just carry on writing and sharing…
“Don’t let what you can’t do, stop you from doing what you can do…best.”
