The average person spends about 4 hours a day watching tv!!
There is nothing wrong with tv, I as well believe in down time and mindlessness time. Time to let your mind roam, as “not all who wander are lost!” And it is important to give ourselves the space to indulge in what we love to do.
So I ask you, how much time are you spending on tv, on mindlessness, versus “strategically wandering” or time INVESTED in your growth, in directing and designing your life. In living a life through your ACTIONS!!
Our character is shaped by what we do in our leisure time. Just like an athlete is only filling the mold during a match that they have created through hours of intentional and deliberate practice, so do we shape our “working” hours by what we do when we are not working.
Enjoy this day of family, leisure, pleasure, indulge, rest, relaxation and PREPARATION, to refuel, refocus, recharge and realign, so that this week, is not a replica of last week, rather, one that is BETTER and more fulfilling!!

The Trump administration wants to end direct #NASA funding for the International Space Station by 2025 — but that doesn’t necessarily mean the US will stop sending people into orbit around Earth by then. Instead, NASA hopes to transition the domain of lower Earth orbit, where the space station resides, to the commercial space industry over the next seven years. But what would it take for private space companies to take over this area of space — and what exactly would they do up there
An option would be for one or more companies to take over full-time management of the International Space Station (ISS). But the orbiting lab is expensive to fly: NASA spends between $3 billion and $4 billion each year to keep the station afloat, and that’s money that most commercial companies either don’t have or aren’t willing to spend. Multiple astronauts and flight controllers also have to work around the clock to keep the ISS running at all times, and the private sector may not have the personnel or the resources to take on such a daunting task.
A more likely scenario is that commercial companies could at some point operate a cache of private space stations in lower Earth orbit. Such vehicles would likely be smaller, less expensive, and less complex than the ISS, but they would allow continued access to this key area of space. Lower Earth orbit is a great testing ground for the technologies needed for missions to the Moon and Mars, which NASA has its eye on. With private stations, NASA could buy time and space on these modules to continue doing tests in #microgravity. Private space stations could also be used to create entirely new types of revenue, serving as places to do in-space manufacturing of #satellites or platforms for tourists to visit.
The main unknown is whether or not the commercial space industry will be ready to take up this mantle by 2025. A few companies are working on habitats and technologies that could do the trick, but no one has demonstrated a standalone private station yet. And if the iss goes out of commission before commercial companies are prepared to step in, the US could see a gap in access to lower Earth #orbit.
