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 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 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 16, 2017- Update so far and refocus day

Hello September Saturday,

the gallery people I was hoping to work with have not contacted me, so I was a bit anxious yesterday.

My deadline approaches.

I had an almost friend doubting my success to something that I really like to do.

But today is another day. And I will treat myself to the best advice possible, to refocus on my objective.

And to celebrate the good work I have been doing all this time.

So, morning coffee to a nice place, an inspiring read, and contact my best friends.

Well, I guess I treat myself to a nice coffee every morning.

Instead of a horrid novel I felt obliged to read, I read something inspiring.

And that’s what I will write also.

What can be inspiring?

To keep walking, no matter what.

September 12, 2017- Morning café mood

Hello September,

the busy or the empty café for the morning?

If I go to the empty and I fill sleepy, I might continue on the same mood.

If I go to the busy, there is not much work to be done because people are buzzing around.

So?

I chose the busy.

And here I am, writing my post with numerous people passing by, in and out.

I have promised myself to focus and be alert to all the opportunities that will come my way.

Let’s be busy in a meaningful way.

Not agitating myself, but doing.

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 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.

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 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 😉
