February 26, 2017- How to expand Time: speed up by slowing down

Hi February,

apparently Hermione Granger received a gift in order to expend time in one of Harry Potter’s books, but is there another way?

So that I feel relaxed and people come to me and say when did you do all these things? You are in advance and so productive! You have Time for fun and Time to work. And all this with a smile. It is as if your day had twice as many hours and in the end, you are calm, full of energy and happy.

That is what they would say.

Now how do I get There from Here?

Here is some advice I found googling this topic:

February 22, 2017-A leap of faith!

Hello February

how do you know which is your priority? Weather, celebrations, flowers beginning to blossom. I was trying to focus on my writing and somehow I couldn’t.

I was divided between the direction I should take. There are so many things to do, taking me to different paths. How do I know which way to choose?

When I asked for advice, there was someone who told me I was too ambitious and I should not reach for the moon. But try for the closest star.

Somehow, this doesn’t agree with my personality.

On the other side, apparently. we should choose with our heart.

And take a leap of faith!

She took a leap of faith and grew her wings on the way down ...

 

 

February 19, 2017-A place to write on a Sunday afternoon in London

Hello February,

I thought it would be ok to take my computer and go work at a Soho café on Sunday. Well, it was nice to change neighborhood and to see new people, but as for working, I should probably forget it.

It was small and crowded, with great coffee, though.

I even tried two or three others in the area, packed with people having the same idea.

What do I exactly look for?

A comfortable café with a lot of space, half filled customers. So that you can amuse yourself with other people but they aren’t too many and noisy to completely distract you from whatever you are doing.

A place which is not a well-known chain but something more personalised.

So I went to the Foyle’s café on the 5th floor of the homonymous bookstore.

 

 

February 15, 2017-On Being a productive WRITER

Hello again February,

I tried to wake up at 6.00 for the last two days in order to be more productive with my writing and I have felt sleepy and moody for the rest of the day. I just wonder if I should stick to it or if I should go back to my old rhythm.

You see, the thing is I have become more productive but not much happier. And if I don’t find a way to be both, this is not going to last.

The main thing is I like to start my day day-dreaming. This is my best spot.

So working early and night-dreaming or daydream?

Both I guess.

Daydreaming is number one for a writer. And night-dreaming.

Then I can go back to my other writing.

I want to feel every day that I can change the world with my writing and my thoughts.

BECAUSE BEING A WRITER IS CHANGING THE WORLD STARTING FROM OUR OUR OWN!

 

 

 

February 15, 2017-Post St.Valentin celebration

Hello February,

after a friendly St Valentin looking at films, eating pizza with beer, lots of chocolates and talking about past ex-loves, I walk up with a mood today. So I checked my last two years St Valentine’s entries on this blog and saw I had a great time.

I need to change my mood and pick up a better one.

St Valentine, give me some help here!

February 11, 2017: Back in action, for a busy weekend

 

Hello February

I feel motivated to feed me properly and have all the energy necessary for my plans!

Winter or no, rain or snow, I have things to accomplish.

Not even St-Valentine can stop this urge for action.

Or maybe there is a St-Valentine dimension to it also.

To begin with, I found myself with a mac for the first time, decided to accelerate at the rhythm of this machine.

February 10, 2017- Resourcefulness and Creativity for a Breakthrough

Hello February,

I am going around trying to define my breakthrough goal for the next semester, the one that will lift me off my feet. And I think I got it. I want to work for one of the most prestigious art institutions. Why?

Why?

Because it is like a meeting place for interesting people and resources.

It is where action takes place.

And where energy moves.

I want to get there.

Yes!

 

February 8, 2017- Make 2017 my Best Year Yet ;-)

Hey February,

so I have decided that 2017 is my Best Year Yet, and here is an idea: to try something completely new this year and get out of my comfort zone.

Well, I am not sure I am completely inside my comfort zone.

Have I taken too many risks?

Spent my economies into this London project?

Was the return what I have expected?

And, for a creative, do I have my focus and concentration to writing or do I let my mind wonder here and there instead?

Well, what do I do if I catch myself self-doubting and thinking trouble-maker thoughts?

I can smile and repeat a few things I CAN do starting from the first letter of the alphabet 😉

February 3, 2017: Start the day without sugar :-)

Hi February,

I decided to get rid of some eating habits such as sugar for example, and we will see how it goes. The most difficult will be to do without chocolate, but I need to look for tablets without or with a small amount of sugar and a lot of good cacao.

So, cacao for the afternoon will allow me not to go …nuts!
