Morning everybody. How you doing today at Mark here. I wanted to talk to you about unexpected lessons for those of you on the Block as you can see here over my shoulder. There's a little interesting painting artwork. I've been in meetings all week with the Trend Micro team from around the world and moving and looking back at 2018 looking forward to 2019.

Lots of great stuff coming from the trend team. Globally. It's going to be really exciting year 2019, but as part of that activity in the evening a lot of team building activities and we had a paint night as part of one of the activities, which is a lot of fun.

It supposed to be really relaxing and for those who can see it on the obviously, you know, it's it's an interesting character trial describe it for those of you on the podcast. It's basically a a poor interpretation of the scream. So, you know hands next to somebody's ears at while they are.

Coming out with a nighttime background. It was supposed to be Christmas trees. Yeah, it was supposed to be free Christmas trees in a beautiful winter night time setting I've discovered that I don't paint well and I don't enjoy it and everybody else is having a great time producing beautiful art at various interpretations in various levels of skill.

That was the point. It's no judgments just for fun. And you know, it's supposed to be relaxing but I found for some reason not really sure why every sort of stroke got me more and more frustrated and I was just kind of starting to lose my beans have a good friend of mine suggested maybe painting The Scream instead and I thought that was apropos because it reflected my internal State as I was just going what is going on here.

I think it's hilarious. It is absolutely craptastic level of painting, you know, basically finger painting by a baby would have been better, but still lesson. Painting while relaxing for some is infuriating for me also on the infuriating front and unexpected lessons front. I had a hard drive crash. That's not my main system.

Not my SSD in my in my laptop or anyting but I had a big storage array that actually was too redundant discs and so it was supposed to be 12 terabytes is for done. And so it's only 6 and basically every time that I write data to it against braided into two physical drives and the idea there was a time that two physical drives always have at least two copies of this data and it wasn't critical data files for videos and things like mornings with Mark and stuff like that.

But for some reason this week this reliable system isn't working for a year. No problem died and it died in an interesting way. I got a replacement from Lacey who's on my Seagate now fantastic customer service. They shipped it out overnight. The second one try to put the raid array into the new caddy for it take to drive there one box put them in another still didn't work can't recover the array being a friend.

That's kind of cool. I'm just going to rip the date of Ralph 2 Disc. Yeah, the way it's written. It's not coming back out. There was a catastrophic failure on both discs, which the whole point of writing the two discs at the same time was to avoid that one drive failed.

I'd have all my data on the other drive so I plan for failure. I didn't plan for enough failure turns out because I'm what ended up happening was there was a malfunction in the caddy itself from the thing that host the two drives and it corrected both drive. So the drives physically are fine, but it corrupted their data.

The problem. So I'm out this date is not critical. I made sure that the workflow I need critical data is written to a bunch of places to archival work project. That would have been handy to reference Back to the Future. But now I have to re-evaluate my data flow systems.

Methodist unexpected failure that happened. I'm so unexpected failure with a painting on multiple levels, but I took away last night and said, you know what this is not a relaxing activity for me. There is nothing about paint even though I do like to draw there's nothing but painting that I find relaxing or roared.

So blessed learned. I had what I thought was an intelligent multi-prong data retention reliability sword durability strategy didn't work. So lesson learned. I'm going to take my key takeaway a for you instead of reflecting back on 2018 is that this really worth trying to fix putting yourself out there some mornings with Mark.

This is episode 148. I think we're going to hit 150 next week and then I'm going to shut it down for winter holiday for Christmas holiday and I'm and then back up again in the new year, but I've learned a ton over the hundred fifty what will be a hundred 50 episodes experimenting essentially and I think that's really the core here that you can set things up.

You can think you plan for anything. You're always going to have unexpected learning and that's not a bad thing. Plan for it. You need to accept it and change your ways moving for based on new information. I think that's my critical. Take away besides the fact that I'm a crab painter.

It is that you need to be able to accept failure except unexpected events analyze them learn from them and then adjust moving forward. I think that's the absolutely critical piece adjust moving for. Do you have any humorous things to share? Any horrible art? What do you think about failure you learn from it time? Do you get frustrated with it would just totally natural, but you need to accept that frustration, Push it down and then move forward.

Let me know. Hit me up online at my blog. I apologize for having to look at this painting. You can comment down below and buy as always everybody on the podcast everybody else by email me at Mark n. C. I hope you have a fantastic Friday and have a wonderful wonderful weekend.
