When I was young my dad always had a 3 by 5 card on him.

That card had his to do list that he followed religously. As I grew up, computers came making our lives easier. He did things the old fashion way, taxes by hand and has the accountant look it over.

So did he embrace new technology. Hell yes. He revolutionized the use of video in training for American. He knows SABRE like the back of his hand.

But there are some things that he does that he believes in using old technology. Still splits logs by using a sledgehammer and a wedge. He still believes in weeding the garden every weekend. His yard is close to perfect.

However he still had that card. Still carries it today.

I am a new technology type of guy, not as bad as Magoo or Damon, friends who have all sort of technology.

But today, I looked at a 3 by 5 card and started to write my to-do list on it.

In some ways, I’m glad I’ve continues some of dad’s habits.

But don’t expect me to mow the yard…
