MindApples – One a Day for Your Mind

Came upon an interesting site today called Mindapples. Normally I’ll pop into a site like this, look around, and pop back out.

But today I created an account, contributed 5 Mindapples, and look forward to the daily interaction that may develop from an association with this site. I find that spending a lot of time on the web (the nature of the job) causes my mind to turn to twisted mush sometimes. I can get so far out there following link after link that a need real breadcrumbs to find my way back. My daily mantra? Focus, focus, focus. Success rate? Sketchy.

Could someone toss me a mindapple? I don’t know if I’ll stick with the site or not, but topics having to do with the mind interest me. Especially in light of my mom’s difficulties with memory loss and whether I’m previewing my own future when I’m with her.

While I was reading through the Mindapples blog, I read an entry with the following quote by Steve Jobs:

“I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

That’s is a Mindapple that I’ll savor for quite a while.
