My Perfect Day looks like:
Usually I'm all about the visual. I listened to a webinair recently that had no visual aids and it was great. The presenter, Samantha Bennett, explained that as her audience comprised of creative folks that she felt that the best pictures came from our own imagination. This had at least 2 great results. 1. I got to appreciate my creative imagination. and 2. My answers were not coloured by someone else's ideas. That really is the way to get the creative juices flowing.
I chose 'Autumn Sunshine' because of the way it makes me feel and the wonderful memories and pictures those feelings evoke. Cosy days complete with sunshine and layers, filled with creativity and happy thoughts. I wish I could show you a picture, but then, maybe I already did.
They say a picture can make 1000 words, sometimes a couple of words can create 1000 pictures. (as Marie Would say it's a tweetable)
Day 6 - Time to prioritise
Three priorities :
1. Monetise my free range life
2. Learn about Aspergers
3. Be Creative
Day 7 -
1. Write a response blog post to this question:
In the spirit of using what I've got, the tools I intend to use to maintain my mindset are:
Meditation - I intend to meditate daily, I'll use the creative sources I've already tried i.e. Jamie Ridler's Creative Visual Meditation and Lissa Rankin's Self Healing Meditation.
Reminding myself daily that the professional mindset gels fully with my authenticity.
Day 8 -
TODAY’s challenge: is to take a break
Failing this one miserably - as taking a break is not really an option as I'm cramming 30 days worth of challenges into 9.
