Opting Out

I read a brief article on this idea of opting out of all this data sharing. This one paragraph that caught my eye:

A good first stop is the World Privacy Forum, a nonprofit “dedicated to reimagining privacy in a digital era.” The organization has an extremely detailed opt-out list for data brokers, with the respective links and steps needed to remove your info from the companies’ clutches. More broadly, the WPF put together what it calls the top 10 opt-outs — a detailed step-by-step guide to pulling your information from the data brokers of the world.

Mashable

For years now, I’ve utilized the site Catalog Choice to get unsubscribed from LOTS of catalogs and other junk mail. I still have lots to throw in the recycle bin straight away, but it is considerably fewer thanks to this service. One of the first steps in getting organized is to have less stuff to organize! I’m pretty sure that’s why this simplification craze is taking on like wildfire. 🙂

Now, I’m off to the races with the “top 10 opt-outs” to start opting out of some stuff. Happy day.

Making Plans

Guard your heart, avoid obstacles, plan ahead and stay the course!


Proverbs 4:23-27
Keep your heart with all vigilance,
for from it flow the springs of life.
Put away from you crooked speech,
and put devious talk far from you.
Let your eyes look directly forward,
and your gaze be straight before you.
Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.


I love these verses because they so clearly outline what we must do and not do as we live our lives. I also find it interesting and hugely significant that 3 things come before you plan your steps.

  1. Guard your heart
  2. Avoid obstacles (perverse & corrupt speech)
  3. Look ahead “fixing your eyes” on Jesus
  4. Now you can make those plans.

Once you are done, don’t get sidetracked! Stay the course, and always keep Philippians 4:13 tucked away in your heart.


Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ, because he gives me strength. (NCV)
