Not going to lie, the past few weeks have been crazy, in the best way possible! Between work, family, and what seems like a never ending amount of activities to do now that the world is opening up again, I think we can all agree that life is moving much faster now.

Recently my family called me out for being ‘that guy’ who always can always find an excuse to bring up his Tesla. Traffic was a pain? Didn’t even notice because my Tesla was on autopilot. Gas prices through the roof? I just charged my Tesla for $6. My most  recent Tesla obsession is the newly announced Tesla Model Plaid, which has a powerful GPU with computing and gaming power of the PlayStation 5. There’s never been a car that has this kind of state-of-the-art computing technology, state-of-the-art infotainment, and a state-of-the-art price tag of $129K. Not sure if my family will contribute to the “Brad wants to play video games in his Tesla” Go Fund Me, but that’s their loss!

Do you remember the old days, when YouTube was the only video sharing game in town? Not only is there much more competition now, but the kind of content we like to consume online has completely shifted. Like it or loathe it, attention spans are fractured and audience members want to be entertained – but in an authentic way that speaks to their own lives, aspirations and challenges.

Spending so much time at home lately makes me really appreciate my longstanding preference for a clean house. There’s nothing like walking into a room and seeing it in its most organized and inviting form...they say an uncluttered space facilitates uncluttered thinking, and I believe it.

I gotta say, using all this time inside to install a few upgrades is really starting to pay off now that we can occasionally leave the house again...my new Sensi Touch smart thermostat is equipped with geo-fencing so it turns climate control off as soon as I leave my driveway...very 2025.

Things finally appear to be getting back to normal after some truly crazy times in the past year or so. One indication of better times ahead is the arrival of a different type of Madness altogether….that’s right, March Madness is now in full swing!
