The Warrior Creator or how to be relaxed and productive in the middle of a storm

Hello November,

this inspiring post of David Rogers on  The Warrior Creator

is the best way to start the weekend!

Relaxed and busy, how to stay focused on our work even if there is a storm outside.

So I am ready to put to use David’s advice, and be productive and relaxed way:

there is a short story I want to submit this weekend, and my NaNoWriMo novel is advancing, even a few lines a day.

I don’t need to look at the end, I just focus on the next steps.

November 8, 2017- On Colour and job interviews

Hello November,

I am considering a visit to the hairdresser and if I stay with the same colour I have been lately or if I try something a little bit more intense. I might go for that actually.

Is there a colour that makes people look more dependable? Brown probably, if it comes to accountants. How about artists?

If you come with a brown colour and the way an accountant dresses you might come up as boring and lacking creativity.

Is there a way to be ourself whatever that means and to be successful in a random interaction?

Maybe it is to be self-confident and show you are the right person.

Not because you fit exactly the role, but because you are capable of doing it?

October 18, 2017- The Rules :-)

Hello October,

in the midst of chaotic events, a friend has offered me ‘The Rules’ to inspire me getting a Mr Right.

After skimming it, I decided it’s good to retain the essential: we need to respect ourselves and others will respect as then.

The same goes for jobs.

Do I feel like the best anyone could have? Do I show there is competition?

That I am an asset?

Let’s become hard to get.

I have a meeting today, I will leave early. And go to another one in the same way.

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, 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!
