“Being a leader gives you charisma” – Seth Godin
I can be shy at times. Hearing this quote makes a lot of sense to me. The more people I meet the easier it becomes to be charismatic.
How do you become a leader? I think you achieve this by being different, by being yourself.
“Inspiration Is for Amateurs—The Rest of Us Just Show Up and Get to Work”
“Inspiration is for amateurs — the rest of us just show up and get to work. And the belief that things will grow out of the activity itself and that you will — through work — bump into other possibilities and kick open other doors that you would never have dreamt of if you were just sitting around looking for a great ‘art idea.’ And the belief that process, in a sense, is liberating and that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel every day. Today, you know what you’ll do, you could be doing what you were doing yesterday, and tomorrow you are gonna do what you did today, and at least for a certain period of time you can just work. If you hang in there, you will get somewhere.”
It is easy to become complacent with your lifestyle especially as artists. Challenge yourself. Do something new. Try a new technique.
“If you think you’re being risky, you’re doing the safest thing you can. If you’re playing it safe, you’re taking a big risk.” – Seth Godin
What is the business model of our generation?

“Kill the clock inside your head
And you can get your sleep when you are dead” – Flyleaf
We often put time restraints on ourselves. Time restraints will drive you crazy. Im too young to do this or too old to do that. Just do it.
Social networks can be a double edged sword. Reaching out to people can be a good thing but spending to much time doing so can be bad. Balance I guess. I found that I get better results when I spend more time creating. If you do great work then people will make the effort to reach out to you.
I was told that I was a control freak. Naturally I took offense and rejected the term. A control freak is a negative or can be seen as a negative trait. I soon realized that I am indeed a control freak after reading Mastery by Robert Greene
I want to control my own life. In order to gain control of you own life you have to become a master in your calling.
