continuing to learn and moving forward

Last Update: December 29, 2013

Since I started a couple weeks ago in early December, its been lots of new learning for me and I love it. Little struggles here and there, but the community is incredible. Such awesome help :)

I am liking my niche of decreasing stress and even had a situation that was kind of ironic regarding my niche. Dropped my iphone in water. That's a stressful moment! I am sure many people have experienced this lovely event. I didn't just get it wet ...it was fully submerged. I grabbed it quickly but it wasn't looking too good. However...the good new is - the old rice trick works!. Just put your phone buried in rice (not cooked of course) in a container for 24 hours. its like magic - absorbs the water from your phone. My phone went on an accidental swim yesterday morning...I stuck it in rice and it works perfectly fine today. Amazing!!!

Maybe my next post on my site needs to be dealing with the stress of electronics and how to manage and prevent situation to prevent stress. Its called - always back things up and be more careful ...lol

Haha Karen - I once got handed a phone by a colleague who said they'd dropped it in water - I had a quick check as you do, and recommended the rice fix. It was only afterwards they let me know they'd actually dropped it down the toilet!!!!

Anti-bacterial hand-wash is now close by :)

All the best, Mark

Thanks for sharing..... that is a lesson learned to ask what body of water they dropped it in..lol
- luckily mine was in the bath tub. I guess it could have been worse.

So glad that the rice trick rescued your phone! I know it worked with my Fitbit after a run-through in the washer. I think the stress of dealing with electronics is a great post idea. So many people will be able to relate.
