September 22, 2017- Keeping focused while life happens

Hello September,

Regarding painful past that comes up when you are going through interviews, the essential thing is what you can do for the people who interview you: NOW and in the future.

The past is a path to the actual PRESENT. And it could change, as we change our way to see it.

So yes, for example, there is this and that and the other. But look, this is why I can put together this exhibit in such a successful way now.

As for the rest, how to keep oneself focused, while things happen around, affecting our concentration and will?

Just by gazing in this direction, and saying, this is what matters most, I will give it my full attention.

September 17, 2017-Old and New decisions- Confidence boost

Hello September,

sometimes insecurities can make us embrace other people’s values, I listened to Natalie Portman say, and this comment goes home!

So how do we leave behind in-securities and go do whatever we want to?

I see in front of me a handsome guy whose nervousness make him less attractive. So why doesn’t he just relax?

Why would I do the same?

I have a project, and I have a purpose.

I am going to wake up earlier.

And write every morning, even a small note.

It is important to own my meaning.

And to congratulate ourselves for doing this.

So today, I have some writing, but I will also take care of my home, clothes, and do things I love.

September 8, 2017 to October 8, 2017-Day 1 out of a month to get myself dream-job

Hello September,

we are having a kind of emergency here, needing to fix things so that I can go on in my multiple creative projects and adventures.

One month to get myself my dream-job.

Challenges:

a. there are haters in my field: I seem too wild, provocative and … dum creative. And most of all, they have more power than me.

b. Some people in my field don’t take me seriously. I haven’t this or that or the other. Or I have too much of this or that or the other.

c. I find some of their conversations boring, and they think I am too unpredictable…

d. I am running out of time and resources

Positive points/

a. My work is appreciated but other people in my field.

b. There are people whose company I appreciate and I find creative to talk to them about our work

c. I have a great new idea

d. There are people who would like to give me a hand.

e. I am running out of time and resources

f. I started going to the gym

 

So?

I am a resourceful person. The lack of time could be a good thing, and the same for the lack of resources when you are creative.

How can I face the difficult people? I can try kindness when they are into my face. Or simply avoid them.

How can I find the places where there are more people like me? By trying and error? Internet? All of them?

Update

It seems I have taken a huge risk in the last two years and it is still unknown weather it has payed. The solution? Continue with a still bigger one, but make sure some of my work, book, etc gets published.

August 6, 2017- Strategy lessons for underdogs ;-)

Dear August,

there are people enjoying the beach, their holiday or far niente,Ā and I am deep in thought on the best strategy for my career.

Could you advise me on this?

How do you act in order to make a place for you in a highly competitive and closed artistic world?

Any ideas for underdogs?

It could be from literature, every day life, business… art…

I am all ears.

So, bring it on!

P.S. Apparently the Game of Thrones has some interesting suggestions.

June 14, 2017- Asking for feedback

June hello,

recentering is quiet a thing, it happens with Googlemaps when you walk somewhere and you are out of track; so how do I do it?

Now, the objective here is to find the best place in the world for my objective.

Someplace I can continue growing.

And where I have the means to do it.

Somewhere I feel good.

And others feel good about it too.

So?

Well, I can apply for jobs here and there.

But I realise I need to publish more.

It is probably best to have some things out than wait for the perfect text.

So let’s get myself out there!

June 8, 2017- alarm snooze at 4.00 in the morning

Hello June,

I set the alarm at 4.00 in the morning instead of 6.00 I meant to wake up and I ended up at 7.00; in any case, I am happy with that.

The good thing, I am much more awake at 9.00 than in the previous days, and writing. This is great I would say.

I am checking again my short story and try to refocus my strategy after a double no from two job applications.

I didn’t have my heart to it. Some haters from the Parisian world were there.

So, where to?

To my next adventure!

April at a crossroad: towards greener pastures?

This blog took me out of a dysfunctional working environment.

From Paris to London.

After one year and a half in London, I am again at a crossroad: will I get a job allowing me to continue my stay?

Or should I look for greener pastures elsewhere?

I am going to use this blog again as a confident for my adventures to be.

March 26, 2017- On spring arriving and on solving dilemmas

Hello March,

today it has been a beautiful day in London, everything we needed to breath after the last week… in any case, going out for a walk on parks and looking for terraces has been my priority.

I had been stressing up for the direction I should take in my life and career and somehow, again, I realized this is out of context.

The real question is: “what do I want?”

“what is my heart’s desire?”

The rest will follow.

And yet, what if I haven’t figured that out?

Isn’t it possible to have contradictory wishes?

Take Hamlet for example, it happens every day.

It is also called a Dilemma.

Then what?

Should I procrastinate until the problemĀ resolvesĀ itself?

Or should I wait to fall desperately in love so that another variable will add to the equation?

Any ideas?

For the moment, the best thing was to hang around and write … for my next book!

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 šŸ˜‰
