September 20, 2017- Preparing for a presentation. How to deal with the past going forward

Hello September,

As I am going through interviews, I have a slight apprehension about questions concerning my past, especially when the road had bumps and when my path was not straight

How can I talk about failures, mistakes, or aggressions without feeling down or inadequate?

Ok, everything has made me what I am today.

Should I focus on what they need?

Can I for example, organise an exhibition?

Yes.

This is what counts.

And more practice.

Any ideas?

September 18, 2017-Motivation Monday- and Fun

Hello September,

I woke up early as promised, although I have gone for coffee only at 8.00. I am to go to a gallery opening later in the day, and to stay up for the reception and drinks that will follow.

I realize I don’t have anything to wear and somehow all my clothes need something to make them fit together and look in their best for fall 2017!

So?

Does it matter after all how stylish I look?

Well this is the art world, but I am not into fashion.

After all, I am the artist.

I can go as I want.

As long as I have fun with it.

How am I going to respect my inner wild child if I try to conform?

My inner wild child is asking for more fun.

And no emergency is capable of taking away this.

Having fun NOW, not tomorrow, or another day.

Isn’t it risky to have fun at the reception while I am looking for a job?

Yes, but in any case, I am not going for the kind of jobs where too much formality is demanded.

At least not in the conventional form 😉

 

 

September 9 and 10, 2017- DreamJob challenge, day 2 and 3

So, here I am September,

with a good sign in the horizon. A gallery has asked me to come by and discuss a collaboration together. It is not probably THE dream job, but it is great they have given me a sign. And I will prepare well, because you never know, maybe I will like these people and it will transform into something great.

In any case, it is for next week.

This is great, I just need to keep my energy level high and at the same time to take a good rest.

How do I avoid little practical things and annoyances to get in the way of my mood?

I ignore them and focus on the objective.

What is the most important thing right now?

September 6, 2017- Deadline to get my sh..t together, end of September

Ok September,

I decided to write once a day, and this morning I started a bit later than I wanted to.

I had two meetings and although people like what I do, they don’t seem to want to engage with it. They are more like, go ahead and if it succeeds I will be there, if not, I will be standing here watching you.

Would I need a change of orientation?

Approaching different type of people?

Stay at home and do nothing?

Or continue my efforts no matter what?

There is a deadline for me, and that is, end of September.

I need to get my sh..t together by then.

And see if I will stay in London, and what other options I have.

So, you and I September, need to keep a close look at each other.

I found a book on this topic, let’s hope it brings some good ideas!

Get Your Sh*t Together

September 1st, 2017-Getting on the front line

Welcome September!

Yes, I will no longer run and hide, I will get out there and find who would like to join in and work on a collective art project with me!

September first, I feel it’s time to take a chance and jump in.

To begin with, I am going to ask for help.

Here I am, with an idea. Or lots of ideas.

How can they become reality?

With other people’s help. People who would join, transform and contribute to them.

Am I afraid of people who don’t like me on my field?

Yes, but it is time to go and find some others.

Who do.

There is no time for false modesty here.

Let’s go and have this project happen!

August 31, 2017-Back to School and Back to London

Hello August,

I have just got back to London and to a beautiful sunshine, although the temperature is lower than at the South of France. And here is a pile of bills waiting for me, and a very busy month ahead.

Somehow, and without no tangible reason, I am very optimistic. I take a break and enjoy the sunshine and a cup of coffee before dealing with re-al-ity.

I feel that I have something special to contribute to the world, through my art, and presence.

Yes, I have been a misunderstood genius, but I will come into terms with my co-humans into this life even if I have to go around the world.

To begin with, I realise I need a personal assistant 😉

The second thing, is to look into the priorities and not the urgent things.

August 16, 2011- Creating a great day

Hello August,

yes, I am sleepy in the morning, I have come and gone three times to get my cup of coffee and glass of water in the garden. I am staring at my computer screen and everyone else around is asleep.

Holidays? Almost.

There is a piece of writing to finish first.

And this is a priority in the Samurai new attitude 😉

August 3, 2017-Be-fore holidays, Be-coming

Hello August,

 

London is chilly and I am up in the morning, between job applications, dreams and plans.

Where is love?

Where are holidays?

Are we going to experience bliss in this lifetime?

I am up at 6.00 and at my favorite café at 9.00 writing. Parisian habits…

I am ready to go to the end of the world and back and get whatever is fit for me.

Or create it.

So I haven’t been successful up to now, but was there something I particularly liked?

Maybe not.

I think that I am ready to be to a place that appreciates me for what I am.

And where I can Become.

 

August 1rst, 2017- Update and August goals- having a drink with friends

Welcome August!

London seems less crowded than usual, and I started the day on a holiday mood, meaning, I watched pictures of remote islands on my computer screne.

Now, since I am not there yet, I need to pull myself together and see how I will make the best of this month.

My updates?

I have advanced a lot in July, but there isn’t anything tangible yet.

Should I try to forget myself in daily reveries, drink and use other abusive substances, (i.e. chocolate)?

Or should I take a different perspective and try again?

I will take the second option.

The positive thing is I got some feedback in July, so I can modify my profile to put into advantage my best aspects.

And a glass of wine could also help, especially if it is shared with friends 😉

July 11, 2017- What to do when you fall on a star :-) -Correcting your course

Hello July,

so what if I fall on a star, and the moon is still further away?

The first reaction is to feel unsatisfied, after all, this star was not where I was aiming for. And feel guilty. I should have done this and this and that. Or feel powerless. After all, I seem to have objectives and I don’t fulfill them as I should. And then, if I accept the result, does it make me someone who is stuck there?

Feeling bad about oneself is wasting our time.

I have tried it, it just gives you unwelcome psychosomatic annoyances.

Change objectives?

Well, if they are changing every day you lose a sense of direction.

But they can be a little bit flexible.

How about creating exceptions and correcting our course?

Here is how it can go/

I am great anyway, and objective X is worthwhile.

I said that I would wake up at 5.30 and today I woke up at 9.00.

I needed this because last week I took a business trip and I needed time to recover.

So much the better.

Instead of feeling guilty I give myself a free day, for rest but also for taking a mental vacation out of everything and reorienting myself towards the North Star.
