Brain in a box

In order to think out of the box, I keep my brain in a box.
So that I don’t forget things I trick myself into remembering. When I leave the house I only have to remember three things.
1.Keys – so I can drive.

2.Fanny pack – for commerce, food and health.

3.My iPhone – for everything else.

Keys allow me to drive my car, get the postal mail and unlock my house.

I have apologized to teenagers for wearing a fanny pack. Surprisingly, 90% of them admit that they “sport a fanny pack too.”
As long as I don’t leave it somewhere my fanny pack is better than pockets. All the utility stuff is in there.

Fanny pack contents:
Front small pocket:
iMentor stuff such as paper notepad (business), business cards and flash drive.
Flash drive contains all my technical magic.

Social media does fit into this box somewhere, but I like to stay on its periphery.
Three things are all I need. They help me to be prepared.

All I need are Keys, Fanny pack and my brain in a box.
