I can’t believe it has taken me this long to realize that I need to improve. In hindsight it seems obvious. Of course I need to continually get better. Something happened, life happened or whatever other convenient excuse happened. I got comfortable, lazy. I stopped improving.
I was fine for a while. I’m a top performer. A little slide in performance doesn’t register. Until a little over a long time becomes a lot. I had to do something. Things need to change. What could I do? I’m busy. I’m committed to important things. I can’t make a radical change.
I can make a small change, lots of small changes. Then I’ll stack them together. Lots of small changes overtime become big changes. I’m making small changes every 30 days. I’m stacking my small changes together over a year.
Small improvements over time become big improvements. Life changing improvements.
Welcome to my steady journey to becoming the best me I can be.
December - 30 Days Of IIoT
Sarcastic Answer: It’s marketing hype.
My Answer: The Industrial Internet of Things is the belief that communication between machines improves the ROI of a factory.
The Industrial Internet of Things is a belief. The belief in IIoT takes many forms. Articles about IIoT share a vision of the future. The industrial internet of things is permission to dream about what could be possible. It is a platform for building fantastic visions for the factory of the future that we can build today.
The next 30 days are dedicated to writing about the industrial internet of things. I’m sharing my experiences in manufacturing, machine building and test & measurement. I’ve built machines for giant fortune 50s and tiny mom and pop shops that make window treatments. Every project had some sort of connectivity to a computer, the industrial internet.
The rules for writing about the Industrial Internet of Things for these 30 days are simple: text only. No pictures, no diagrams, nothing outside of standard markdown. This will be an exercise in clearly articulating my technical knowledge in English. Starting in January I’ll share code, diagrams and video. During the month of December I’m limited to text.
