“Concrete dreams, on the other hand, are based on EFFORT and a keen sense of what is possible. Concrete dreams juxtapose what if with the MAYBE. They expose us to hope and risk at the very same time. Living with the POSSIBLE takes guts.”Read More
All that we love and feel truly turned on by in life comes with TENSION. Without this tension, there’s no true freedom...
So many of us, much of the time, listen to the excuses and justifications telling us why NOT to do something and convince ourselves we have EVERY RIGHT to NOT do it, even if we want to and we take a pass.Read More
Seth Godin says “stupid is the emotion associated with learning.” It is NECESSARY. The only ways to avoid it are: 1. Avoid change 2. Avoid freedom. Neither seem that appealing if we are here to live the life of an artist.Read More
As Seth Godin writes: “Now, more than ever more of us have the freedom to care, The freedom to connect
The freedom to choose. The freedom to initiate. The freedom to do what matters.... If we choose.”
ARE YOU STUCK? You ALWAYS have power.
The escalator stopped. It wasn’t personal. It didn’t do it TO YOU, it just did it. Start Walking =D
Seth Godin’s claim is that this is our birthright. We are creators and artists and it is ALWAYS our turn for whatever we wish to play, create, move or express. What is DOESN’T promise is that is will be “guaranteed to work.” He says, “It might now work. I hope you do it anyway.”Read More
