Yes Kirk, It is scary, but the ental "slippage" has already begun.

In your 30's it's barely perceptable and very slow. In your 40's, the slippage really becomes perceptable. (and scary)

I just turned 50, and the mental (and physical)aging process has now really becme apparent.. literally month by month.

At this point in life, you actually begin to grok... life is short! Damn short !

BTW... If you want to have children, don't wait around too long. I waited until 36.. and now wish I'd had children at a younger age.

It could just be that you notice typos more-- I seem to make the same amount now that I used to, if old USENET posts are any indication; but I think I type more these days (IMing, blogging, web-comments, etc.) and I think I'm more likely to catch a typo, now. Plus I tended to spend more time editing usenet posts than I do anything else (save, of course, work-related memos and documents).

On the other hand, my fingers have habits, and while I learned to type by staring at the keyboard, I now type entirely using my finger-memory of the keyboard layout, meaning that I tend to make sound-typos because my thoughts while composing are basically a verbal narration in my head. (As opposed to people who are visually-inclined thinkers.) That and sometimes my hands get placed on the wrong key position and I don't notice right away.

I think most of my typos that slip through are a result of incomplete revisions to already-written text, because I get distracted by other bits of the text I'm revising.

I do the same! I haven't tried the app on my phone yet, I just use the browser.I got a sgutesgion that may help you. Have two different blogs. Have the one blog that you add more perfection to as well as take more time to think an article through. Then create another blog that you can write on the fly with out worry of everything being perfect.Then link the two blogs together in your upper menu.That's how I did it. I got my one blog that's like a micro blog, it's not meant to be perfect. I did to share things with my phone. I here what you're saying, I go through that everyday so many things to write, but they disappear.Another good sgutesgion is to get some kind of office software on your phonephone. This comes in handy when you really want to take some time on an article! You can write a little, save it till later, write a little more then copy and paste it into your main blog.

Ed, thanks for this and saipeclly the gift, I tell nancy all the time that it takes an awful small mind to spell a word only one way .lol.So isn't it a shame how folks talk about changing and even lay out goals and behaviors but then give up . That was one of the main reasons I have become a member of the John Maxwell team and a coach, to asset those that are willing and ready to make the change but still don't know how.Again thanks and Happy New Year! Can't wait for the mentorship calls to start again,, having withdrawals.
