December 1, 2017- December Ninja ;-)

Welcome December!

Winter is coming with you, and it’s a good thing to see things more clearly, the naked tree branches and a more minimalistic aspect of nature!

For me, adventure is here:

I need to move out of my current room by Saturday, and the studio didn’t work because they were asking the 6 months in advance plus expenses plus agency plus deposit.

There is another possibility coming up, but I need all my “sang-froid” or my cool and relaxed attitude to make it work.

The Samurai or Ninja attitude.

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 9, 2017- Instinct, Wishful thinking and Logic: How to make decisions

Hello November,

well, a friend asked me how I see things in London. Am I making any progress in terms of jobs? What is to be overconfident, realistic or having a good instinct for things?

Am I insisting on a course of action because I am just unwilling to be a realist?

Am I doing something different?

Have I asked anybody’s feedback?

Well, I actually did.

I need to go where other people can’t, or won’t.

And, to publish where it is possible to publish, instead of waiting for a perfect publishing. house.

More could be better.

November 1st, 2017- November Goals!

November welcome!

it’s a kind of chilly with 8 degrees in London this morning, and I woke faster to get to my new favorite café since my move. So, what are the goals this month?

  1. Act confidence, and submit as many manuscripts as possible, for publication
  2. look confidence, and dress up the part
  3. exercise
  4. plan things with friends, beginning from birthday celebration
  5. update for success and see what has worked and what hasn’t in my plans

I think this is enough for now 😉

October 5, 2017- Sens of purpose day

Hello October,

when the going gets tough, the tough get going… a wise person has said… so what makes us go?

I have a project, an idea, I think it is important to share it, in the best conditions… I am confident that it’s going to add something to other people’s lives. Some might find it strange.

So, how do I go about it?

Enter the arena you shy away from is an advise.

Ok, this arena might be people who doubt me.

Instead of trying at my level, I might change level and setting.

A different type of gallery, in another setting.

Let’s give it a try.

October 4, 2017- Act Bold

Hello October,

it’s the moment for a Bold Act, to start October; after having had coffee and eaten a chocolate muffin, what is the very best thing to do?

A Bold Act comes from urgency and confidence.

And calm.

How can you be calm in the middle of chaos?

You get to the center.

And you observe things with neutrality.

As if you were not involved.

As if you needed to give advice to a good friend or your child.

And then act fast 😉

October 2nd, 2017- Positive thought for Monday

Welcome October,

with things happening fast, it is important to concentrate on the slow and to do whatever enhances our objective. One important objective is enough. I am happy to have found mine. It took me some time, the last three years it was taking shape slowly but steadily. I have this artistic project. And I am looking everywhere for the best place to be to develop it!

And some resolutions: to wake up earlier in the morning, to look in one direction but to let inspiration come.

And to meet the people with whom we will walk together.

And to begin with, I am walking with me.

I walk everyday, a little bit further.

And eventually I am getting somewhere.

Each day, a step further.

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 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.

June 15, 2017-Waking up at 5.30

Hello June,

I have made it today! It was at 5.30 that I woke up, let’s see how it goes. I am slightly more alert than yesterday at the same time. Let’s see how it goes. I will post every day to check on progress.

I feel this is it, it’s time to believe in myself instead of feeling a potential hiding somewhere and beaming out from time to time.
