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 5, 2017- Postaday to shape up ;-)

Hello September!

let’s shape up with a post-a-day! A friend of mine is telling me she is so busy she doesn’t have time for waxing, but I will make sure I laugh and express myself and feelings in an every day-to-day basis!

So time for waxing, laughing, exercise, and on the contrary, no time for unproductive or self-doubt thoughts.

No time for self-pity and comparisons, what do I say when I am asked, what do you do?

I do as I go.

I have a plan.

A project.

A dream.

It is taking shape as I go.

Every day.

What is the plan for the day?

Breathing in and out, and having coffee in the morning, in one of my favorite places.

Only cleaners on the road and construction workers are out at 7.00 am.

Almost.

I also run into a friend and his family.

Oh, yes, I am going to read a poem just to change.

June 26, 2017- Motivation-third week and focus on finishing

Hello June,

I don’t know if my morning posts become sleepier, but in any case this is very possible as I get up between 6.00 and 7.00.

Looking back at the last two weeks I think: how do I know I am heading in the right direction?

Is ‘this’ what makes me passionate?

Can I combine my loves in creative and different ways?

To begin with, I am putting together an art exhibit next week and there is preparation for it.

Another objective is to advance in two short stories which have been there for a while without having put the final word.

They need to go out and start getting feedback.

Not one day.

This week πŸ™‚

June 25, 2017-Weekly update of success

Hello June,

Here I am again, on a quick update of my decision to wake up earlier and get more active in my daily life.

A lot of things have been accomplished: new friendships, new colleagues, mentors, windows of opportunity and finally good luck.

Things to improve?

Decision 1. I will wake up earlier than 7.30

Decision 2. More serious exercise: I have been stretching at home but I still haven’t honoured my subscription to the gym this month.

Decision 3. I do something for me, such as massage for example;

Decision 4. I become more open to real relationships with people who do the same instead of ‘profile’ relationships where you engage as part of you

Decision 5. I reach for the moon and I do everything to get there.

June 23, 2017-Emotions and intuition

Hello June,

Is listening to our inner voice the best thing to get ahead in life?

Is it a voice to be trusted?

How do we know it is not a voice of fear or confusion and it is something that will take us to the next step?

Well, you can guess from the results, to begin with.

Any way to escape from a pitfall?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotion#/media/File:Plutchik-wheel.svgpe a pitfall?

Hmm, from my experience it should feel good.

Meaning, like when you try a new pair of shoes and your feet feel comfortable inside, almost as if you didn’t wear any shoes at all.

At ease πŸ™‚

So what does might say for me?

That emotions can be a source of power and being hurt is the other side of being connected, and thus, powerful πŸ˜‰

June 22, 2017-Sense of purpose

Hello June,

we are here all of us interconnected, with or without technology. We share the same planet and this becomes somehow important for everyday life in a way we might not even realize.

Especially in the morning.

When we open our eyes.

And we haven’t had yet our coffee, tea, juice, …

and we don’t know exactly where we are.

And still, this is a moment we share.

Is this giving me fuel to go on with my day?

here we are, let’s do something to better our life;

Today!

June 21, 2017-Moving forward

Hello June,

how do we move forward? Is for example moving forward going towards New York or California? Just to take an example.

Is moving forward going North or South?

It all depends on the objective, no?

But is the destination that counts or the fact that we move?

It seems like moving is important.

Towards a goal.

If you have lived all your life in Paris, maybe it’s good to see something else.

Despite the fact that half of the world’s population dreams to get there.

If you are born in New York you need to get out of there also.

I don’t use examples from other places, which could be just wonderful or horrible for different reasons.

And stability?

Do we have to travel around the world then?

I guess that moving from the couch to the desk we are writing is a huge move for someone who travels in thought πŸ™‚

June 20, 2017- Keeping the compass -Focus to our North Star

Hello June,

how do I keep my compass with me everyday, in a way I am focused on whatever I have in mind to accomplish?

Little or big things happen, change arrives and it is good.

We change our values and preferences with time, and our friends, as I just read.

But is there something that is constant?

And if yes, how do I keep my eyes on it?

Where my North Star is?

How do I switch from a feeling of being guilty for not being perfect to acknowledging my strengths and going forward?

I sometimes take it on me I haven’t accomplished this and that; if i find resistance, is there a way to change something so that I go with the flow?

Probably, feeling guilty is taking my gaze away from the North Star.

It is irrelevant.

Am I doing what is best?

I am doing my best for the day.

I promise that.

And doing that is already great.

How about issues that seem to be obstacles?

If I face the North Star, I will find my way around them πŸ˜‰
