A, B, C Monday: Being playful, observing, and laughing.
Sent by Alexander Holloway | April 25, 2022
A. Joyful ideas from me
“The ability to approach any new endeavour playfully is a prerequisite to enjoyable and sustained learning.”
“With any new project, wait and observe a while before imposing control. Let the wild edges creep in a bit and see how you can compliment what is working well and whether any change is really necessary.”
“Laugh and laugh often, even if you have to pretend. It’s the best free medicine.”
B. It was once said…
Actor, film director, producer and screenwriter Mel Gibson on the importance of taking time to pause during creative projects:
“I think any kind of hiatus one takes in an artistic journey is going to make a huge difference. The pause will inform the choices that you make.”
Philosopher, novelist, playwright, and critic Jean-Paul Sartre on how our decisions create our lives:
“We are our choices.”
C. Something to consider this week:
“The human body is one of the most incredible tools you will ever be fully in possession of.
Are you mainly on auto pilot? Have you ever really taken the time to experiment, play and maximise its true potential?
Allocate time this week to pause, marvel at this wondrous gift you have and decide on one thing you want to do with it that you could practice and master.”
Until next Monday,
