Here's this piece of art we got from Hyland Mather(x-o) - I think it's one of his very early works. It was a present from him for my birthday. It hangs above our front door. When I see this it makes me remember that Death is not an option.
Full disclosure, there have been a few times in my life when I thought, maybe. Maybe death was an option - but I firmly believe that when you take yourself OUT of the game, you are just forced to start ALL over again from the beginning - which means rolling the dice to who's kid you get to be the next time around. No thanks, I'd rather stick with what I know and just figure this shit out.
Since Death is the ONLY thing we have to fear in life, I have finally gotten to the place in my life where I actually DO fear death. I got shit to do and I really want to do it. In that way, the years I have left feel like too little and I want to make the MOST of them.
I want you to get the most of your years left - let's face it, you have no idea how many of years that really is.... so are you missing something? LIke maybe your Creativity? Your connection to your own inner self is full of creativity.... it's like a child that's waiting to go out and play - here's how to kick start your Creative juices:
1) Go to a store and check out materials, then go home, 2) When you wake up the next morning, see what material you saw that you're still thinking about - go back and buy it, 3) Schedule three hours of uninterrupted time, if you can't do that, learn time management and try again OR get a buddy to help you commit, 4) Put your phone away and don't touch it for those three hours, if you touch it, you owe me €20, 5) Play with your materials - which means NO goals, NO end product, NO analysis, NO tweeting, 6) Make a mess, 7) Share your experience - do it at work, 8) repeat.
