As I climbed out of bed, I said,<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span>Alexa, play The Black Keys Radio.” I started making my bed with music playing low in the background. Before showering, I grabbed my 7 year old bluetooth speaker and turned it on. The Echo Dot instantly connected to the speaker, and The Black Keys was jamming in the bathroom. When it was time to leave for work, I turned off the old bluetooth speaker, and the music continued playing low on the Echo Dot, right above the headboard of my bed. I left for work.</p> <p>I just came home for lunch, and The Black Keys was still playing in the bedroom, as background noise. I preheated the oven, put the pizza inside, and then told Alexa to set a 15 minute timer. I turned on the little old bluetooth speaker, The Black was jamming again, as I washed dishes. Before finishing the last dish, the timer went off. I dried my hands, and pulled the pizza out of the oven. The music continued. I’ll be leaving for work in a few minutes, and The Black Keys will still be performing all of their songs, as they wait for me to return home.</p> As soon as you truly commit to making something happen, the ‘how’ will reveal itself. — Tony Robbins http://nashp.com/as-soon-as-you-truly-commit-to-making-something-happen-the-how-will-reveal-itself-thinspmdashthinspto http://nashp.com//posts/writing and reading/[quotes]/as soon as you truly commit to making something happen, the 'how' will reveal itself. – tony.md Fri, 11 Aug 2017 14:06:24 -0500 Ulysses Is Switching To Subscription http://nashp.com/ulysses-is-switching-to-subscription http://nashp.com//posts/tech/[apple]/apps/ulysses is switching to subscription.md Fri, 11 Aug 2017 11:53:09 -0500 <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We&#39;re switching Ulysses to subcription.

Each team that I’ve become a fan of, I obsess over every little detail. And thanks to <span class="small-caps">NBA</span> League Pass, I get to watch many teams, and more importantly, I’m not limited to just the local team (Being forced to be a fan of whatever the local team is, seems to be backwards thinking, and limiting ourselves to the broad range of the global society we have with the internet. Nothing is local anymore, unless you want it to be. I prefer to follow things all around the world).</p> <p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-conversation="none"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Seeing as you&#39;ve been a &quot;fan&quot; of half the league I&#39;m surprised <a href="https://twitter.com/Buttler28">@Buttler28</a></p>&mdash; David Anthony (@David_LeBoeuf) <a href="https://twitter.com/David_LeBoeuf/status/895787099416403968">August 10, 2017</a></blockquote> </p> <p>If it hasn’t been clear who I’m a fan of in the <span class="small-caps">NBA</span>, just <a href="http://nashp.com/search?q=NBA">search</a> my site to see. Spoiler: it’s Chris Paul. Chris Paul has only been on two teams in his <span class="small-caps">NBA</span> career (Hornets and Clippers), and now three with this upcoming season (Rockets). When Paul left the Hornets, I stopped watched them. When Paul was hurt on the Hornets, I didn’t watch them until he came back. Same for the Clippers. I don’t bounce around to whatever team is winning at the time. I simply follow Chris Paul.</p> <p>Besides Chris Paul, I was a fan Iverson with the Sixers (Claxton, Hill, Snow, Mutumbo), and I was a fan of the Kings (Webber, Bibby, Peja, Divac, Jackson years). Before that, I was a fan of Michael Jordan. I was too young to understand all the details, but I remember staring at the television while the other kids in the house were doing kids things.</p> <p>I never got the chance to watch Magic, Bird, Dr. J, Wilkins and all the legends play night after night. If I could’ve, I’m sure I’d obsess over a specific player the same way I do Paul. We have the luxury of following these athletes better than ever. I can stay in the comfort of my home and never miss a <span class="small-caps">CP3</span> play, and since he’s been in the league, I’ve done just that. Never. Missed. A. Play. True definition of an obsession. If I can go back in time, I would do the same with Michael Jordan, John Stockton, and Steve Nash.</p> My Apple Predictions For September http://nashp.com/my-apple-predictions-for-september http://nashp.com//posts/tech/[apple]/my apple predictions for september.md Tue, 08 Aug 2017 19:21:33 -0500 <ul> <li>Apple Watch (Series 3, with <span class="small-caps">LTE</span> Sim Card and new design)</li> <li>iPhone, iPhone Plus, iPhone Pro (no more numbers)</li> <li>iPhone Pro will support Apple Pencil</li> <li>iPhone’s home button will always have the Siri graphics circulating</li> </ul> Christopher Nolan In One Minute http://nashp.com/christopher-nolan-in-one-minute http://nashp.com//posts/media/[movies]/date- 08-08-17.md Tue, 08 Aug 2017 00:00:00 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer vimeo" style="padding-bottom: 56.25%"><iframe src="//player.vimeo.com/video/228352232?badge=0&color=ffffff&byline=0&portrait=0" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p>He’s become my favorite director.

Period.</h3> <p><strong>Decaf</strong>: I’m currently drinking coffee as I’m writing this. But for the first time, it’s decaf. I, for some strange reason, didn’t understand why anyone would ever drink decaf. But then I’d be upset because I craved coffee, and I would drink it at night, and never be able to fall asleep. It all makes sense now.</p> <p><strong>Book</strong>: I unfortunately haven’t read a book in a long time. It’s sad how intentional you have to be to actually read a book nowadays. That’s about to change. As soon as I’m done writing this blog post, I’ll be grabbing the iPad and reading Gary Vaynerchuk’s <em>Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy World</em>. The title speaks for itself.</p> <p><strong>Album</strong>: Making an album is tricky. It’s easy to just throw a bunch of songs together and call it an album, but I point to my albums and look at them as monumental events (for myself), where I studied and studied, and eventually I uncovered something about the world around me that feels more like a discovery than an album. With that being said, I feel much closer now to forming a new album.</p> <p><strong>Health</strong>: My weight has been bothering me lately. I’m not used to feeling heavy. People think I’m crazy when I say that, because I’m still an average size, but I weigh more now than I ever have. I point to how I’ve been eating and my lack of exercising. I have to fix this.</p> <p><strong>Pivot</strong>: Pivot is a strong word, but I’ve been seriously focusing on my<span class="push-single"></span> <span class="pull-single">‘</span>brand’ (so to speak), and asking myself how to tighten everything up and, more importantly, how to add more value to other people’s lives. My blog covers a very broad spectrum, and I’ve been rethinking ways to shrink the less impactful areas, while at the same time, staying true to what makes this site special.</p> <p><strong>Noise</strong>: On that note, I’ve been testing a few social media ideas, seeing what sticks, what feels natural, and what’s some areas where I can grow. I’ve been putting the camera on me lately, and I’ve been recording podcasts, practicing different ways to put myself into more content. It’s necessary, but it’s all noise, and I look forward to the noise not being as loud again.</p> <p><strong>Peace</strong>: I was just telling a friend about how unnatural my peace has been lately. I guess I’m so used to dealing with things, that I forget that life also has times where things are quiet and simply good. I’m thankful for this season.</p> Is Social Media Making Me Miserable? http://nashp.com/is-social-media-making-me-miserable http://nashp.com//posts/[lifestyle]/[health]/is social media making me miserable.md Thu, 03 Aug 2017 15:58:02 -0500 <p><a href="http://time.com/4882372/social-media-facebook-instagram-unhappy/">Markham Heid</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>One recent study examined the links between Facebook use and wellbeing.<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span>We found that the more you use Facebook over time, the more likely you are to experience negative physical health, negative mental health and negative life satisfaction,” says study author Holly Shakya, assistant professor and social media researcher at the University of California, San Diego.</p> </blockquote> NASHP - It Feels Different (Music Video) http://nashp.com/nashp-it-feels-different-music-video http://nashp.com//posts/me/[studio]/nashp - it feels different (music video).md Thu, 03 Aug 2017 10:40:40 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Gv0wnHIptHU?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> Monthly Recap (July 2017) http://nashp.com/july2017 http://nashp.com//posts/me/recaps/[about 2017]/july 2017.txt Tue, 01 Aug 2017 09:47:25 -0500 <p><img src="https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/83hvcaq5sifwzu0/IMG_0002.PNG"></p> <p>July was fast.
