Happy New Year, everyone! Here’s something innovative that’s really easy to try for 2019 that might give you a little momentum to do some other things you want.
Get yourself a sketchbook that has only blank pages and substitute it for your notebook at work, school, or wherever you take notes.
I will have a lot of “performance” related moments this year, and before each, I will be telling myself to “make it count”! Some of these moments will be very small, like playing through a piano piece without mistake during practice at home, or on a public piano. However, some will be big and important, like the higher than annual average number of big consequence decisions I expect to make this year.
I picked MAKE IT COUNT over IT’S SHOW TIME because some of these bigger moments will be serious in a rational way to finalize something, rather than an emotional perk up before a “performance” to come. However, I imagine there’ll be lots of moments where I’ll start out with IT’S SHOW TIME, followed by MAKE IT COUNT, as a double mantra.
NICHE (n.) – a place or position suitable or appropriate for a person or thing; a distinct segment of a market.
NICHE will be my word of the year for 2018, as in if you were just going “dabble” in something, find or make your NICHE & excel to stand out.
