(IJCH) It's The Little Things


IJCH - Inside JaiChai's Head (Meaning: My Warped, Personal Opinions and Musings)


From the Author:


I am JaiChai.

And if I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you before, I'm delighted to make your acquaintance now.


I invite you to interact with everyone, learn, and have as much fun as possible!

Simplified Chaos Theory


Chaos Theory operates on "a hyper-sensitivity to initial conditions."

That means that an almost imperceivable change at the start of a process can lead to vastly different results in the end.


For example,

The Butterfly Effect:

"This effect grants the power to cause a hurricane in China to a butterfly flapping its wings in New Mexico. It may take a very long time, but the connection is real.

If the butterfly had not flapped its wings at just the right point in space/time, the hurricane would not have happenened."


And if you've ever done any land navigation the old fashioned way (no GPS allowed) during some recreational hiking - or military infiltrations over land, you fully understand how not adjusting for magnetic declination can land you in Timbuktu!

Again, Chaos Theory's "hypersensitivity to initial conditions" comes into play all the time in all aspects of our everyday lives.

And this was VERY SELF-EVIDENT during my military career...

I wasn't the most gifted sniper.


To be honest, I was pretty lame.

And no, I didn't name my rifle and caress it at night.

Anyway, I often failed to DOPE my Scope right. I didn't always slow my breathing or shoot in between heartbeats either.




Well...let's just say there was Hell to pay in the form of "corrective physical training" and of course, much ribbing by my buddies later - and many rounds of beers on me!

About the Author

Believing that school was too boring, he dropped out of High School early; only to earn an AA, BS and MBA in less than 4 years much later in life – while working full-time as a Navy/Marine Corps Medic.

In spite of a fear of heights and deep water, he performed high altitude, free-fall parachute jumps and hazardous diving ops in deep, open ocean water.


After 24 years of active duty, he retired in Asia.

Since then, he's been a full-time, single papa and actively pursuing his varied passions (Writing, Disruptive Technology, Computer Science and Cryptocurrency - plus more hobbies too boring or bizarre for most folk).

He lives on an island paradise with his teenage daughter, longtime girlfriend and three dogs.

Nice read! One of my former neighbours was a former military. She was retired but she has been an elite snipper. She's in her mid 60's now, but she's on fire! Doesn't miss any damn target. Nowadays she is shooting the crows on her farm. ;0)

Good Stuff always fun to read your post

Yup, little things matter most 😊

Little things.
They matter.

Peace, Love, Gratitude, brother!
