Working through “The Gap”

I came across this video yrs ago, but only recently gave it another look & finally decided to put it into practice.

So let’s get those goals, knock them out one by one and enjoy the lessons along the way.

Thanks for stopping by as always,
Peace & Love

Let your passion out weigh your fear💗

With that being said, I really do love fashion illustration. Something about filling that blank page with colorful ideas; expression, curvey dancing lines. All based on designs that’ll come to life in the near future. This fills me with so much joy and excited eagerness to follow through to finish. But at the same time I’m stuck at a stand still worried that my next move won’t be my best move.

Im petrified that through my experiment process I’ll completely ruin things. So I literally freeze & don’t bother. This, {I’m starting to realize} does nothing but add to my procrastination, and lack of time management.

Im currently working on my fear of ruining things and just trust the “Live & Learn” theory. Got to trust myself more, remember its fun and enjoyable. & that’s the beauty of art

& I for one have created a lot of “Birds” :)🐦🐥🐧 RIP the legendary Bob Ross.

I honestly don’t even know why I’ve been such a punk, its still a work in progress but its finally in motion of completing phase 1. Best part of inspiration aside from getting struck and excited is actually finishing :)😄😄💗 & I’m getting closer to that goal.

As always thanks so much for stopping by,

Breakfast of Champs; Frogs, βœ‹ Hold the Procrastination

If it’s your job to eat a frog, it’s best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it’s your job to eat two frogs, it’s best to eat the biggest one first.

-Mark Twain

Today my Professor shared some insight one of his favorite quotes, what i get out of this….. everybody has sucky aspects of their job/ day/ life. NOTHING MAKES YOU EXEMPT TO THIS, no way around it. Get to chucking those frogs back, and procrastination just makes it worst. So just get it over with.

Reading the New York Times the other day, i stumbled across an article that inspired me. Being that I’m on a mission to drop these horrific procrastination ways. The first entitled “If You Want to Meet That Deadline, Play a Trick on Your Mind” by Phyllis Korkki {http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/01/04/business/if-you-want-to-meet-that-deadline-play-a-trick-on-your-mind.html} She made a few good points, first beginning, with the beginning. The toughest part of any task; is always to start. My mind usually wonders and transforms the task into a monstrosity the size of the Great Wall of China. That I wouldnt have the slightest inclination to dethrone. I would just let it sit there, & get higher and higher.

Good news there are tips for my fellow procrastinators. Mainly Manipulate our perception of Time but how?
Yanpin Tu, a Ph.D candidate at Booth School of Business @ the University of Chicago and Dilip Soman a marketing professor at Rotman School of Management @ the University of Toronto conducted a study with farmers in India. Divided the farmers in two groups, told them save as much money as possible in a bank account. One group’s time period was between June and Dec., the other from July to Jan. of the following yr. Farmers with the December deadline immediately opened their accounts because the deadline was viewed more as the present. Same results with undergrad & MBA students in the U.S

A different study showed people were more likely to start a task if the deadline was within that month, or the one to follow.

Tip #2; Color Code your Calendar.
Pick one color for the certain amount of days leading up to your deadline. From the start day to the last and all days throughout…… Guess it shows each day has the same urgency & everyday counts.
This technique will be new to me, with incorporating a calendar & staying on top of things. Time for my procrastination to kick rocks.

SUCCESS, BREEDS SUCCESS
take it one day at a time, little by little. Try setting shorter term goals that are aligned with the grandiose plan. Might not meet the mark today, but you’ll inch closer to landing it tomorrow.

Soon as I get up ill be chomping down those frogs, making room for whatever else may lay ahead of me.
So, bottoms up

Hope this helps you all as well, let’s knock out those goals
& as always
