P@$sW0Rd5 – They’re complex.

I hope I didn’t just show off anyone’s password up there in the title… although that’s a great one!

In any case, the whole point of this post is to encourage you to change your password… but not to a NEW one. Hear me out…

Isn’t the average “#GeorgeConstanzaWallet” loaded with four credit cards, two debit cards, a dozen points/reward cards along with several stamp cards and a couple government-issued ID cards? Each of these with their own login details. With Twitters “whoops” message (shown below) it just helps you realize how there are accounts that require more security than others.

No one has asked for it, but here’s my opinion.

Credit & debit cards. Have two pins per “brand” that you rotate. For instance, ALL MasterCards would either be 3396 or 2358, ALL Visas are 9354 or 0993 while ALL debit cards are 0844 or 9325 this way, it’s one or the other. You also won’t lock yourself out when you’ve got only three tries before your card is locked.

Digital Get yourself a password manager (ones I’ve used in the past are Keypass, LastPass or Roboform). I hear Dashlane is good also… let me know in a comment what you’d recommend.

  • As for actual passwords to remember & use while you’re away from your regular PC, I personally recommend having only a few passwords of varying complexity. One password could simply be: MyPassword4Fun  – this one could be for accounts that need to be less secure, like game sites or reward signons.
  • The next password needs to be next level complex like: OneDogIsPlentyRight12 It would be used for more secure websites, feel free to use it more than once on other websites/accounts of similar security needs.
  • The final password (or two) needs to be REALLY difficult such as: T0P$3cret1! or Th1sP@$sw0rdzH@rd! This one would be for banks or accounts that, if hacked, could really mess up your life (eg. government, anything financial or shopping sites)

In summary, get a password generator & keeper. This will make your passwords nearly impossible to hack and you’ll only have to remember a single password, the one to get into your password manager… if you forget that one, you’re outta luck.

Lay it down, what are your thoughts?

In A Year From Now

Seriously, what’s the hold up? Pitter Patter, let’s get at her! No time like the present, carpe diem, YOLO and all of that! Grab that dream and run with it!

What’s my excuse? I’m working on that… I’ve got all these great ideas but can’t seem to find the time to get any of them done… why is that? Is it that I’m inefficient with the use of my time? Maybe a lack of time management? Am I too easily distracted? Just the fact that there’s only 24 hours in a day and I seem to need at least 8 of those to sleep and/or rest and a couple more dedicate to food and potty stops? Who am I waiting on?

These are not rhetorical questions… if you’ve got a hint, tip or idea to help any of us get it together and make it happen, PLEASE share!!!! I see comment section…

Motivation

Incentives

Motivation. Sometimes with threats, sometimes with rewards. I personally prefer rewards. When I feel threatened, I often feel less interested in doing a good job and more interested in just getting the job done. Reward my best work and you’ll get more of it!

What form of motivation best gets you going?

Spiral light show above Norway, similar to the one over China!

Here’s a cool video of one neat display! Is it UFO? A Russian missile? Or just an elaborat and amazing laser light show? One thing for sure, it does look like a vortex that could verywell be a portal that closes at the end! In any case, really neat looking!

Being a true Gentleman

Being a true Gentleman

These are good rules to live by men. Nice guys DON’T finish last, they end up with ladies. Our friend Sharpwit says, “Being a male is a matter of birth, being a man is matter of age, being a gentleman is a matter of manners or choice…” Choose wisely, sirs.
