Photography is an amazing art form. It allows us to capture moments, explore the world around us, and share our perspective with the world. It’s a great way to express ourselves and to capture memories that we can look back on and cherish. But, it can also be easy to get caught up in the results, and to focus on pleasing our egos. We all want to take the perfect shot, and when we don’t, it can be discouraging.
Photography is an art form that has been around for centuries, and it has evolved over time to encompass a variety of styles. From traditional portraiture to abstract art, there is a photographic style to suit every taste. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the most popular photographic styles and how they can be used to create stunning images.
How you spend your days is how you spend your life
This is something I constantly think about. And wonder if the way that I live my life is enough? Is it OK to write my thoughts here, take some photos, work and pay my bills? Nothing more nothing less. Is that ok to have an underwhelming, mediocre life?
Why should anyone care about your work?
Why should anyone care about your work? Why should someone care about what you are writing about for example? We all think we are special, that we deserve attention, and that what we are doing is the most important thing in the world or our field of expertise. I’m sorry to say this but if the majority of people think this, then it becomes a double negative and makes everything meaningless or not as important as you hoped. So why should someone pay attention to you and your work?
There is no quick road to what we deem success.
We hopelessly wish for a shortcut, the quick path, instant gratification. To obtain the gratification of accomplishment fame and fortune. In reality, it is the mundane, the monotonous daily grind that leads us to success. I believe that outside of the limelight all great human beings have a simple but effective system that accumulated into their accomplishments. A system the mainstream contuses ignores because it isn’t exciting or flashy. There is no excitement, story or obstacle to overcome in these basic systems for success. Just get up, sit down and do the work. Read, train, take notes, and improve, little by little. This method I believe this to be effective. But sadly would never be made into a movie because it’s just that, monotonous and boring. The road to success is so simple we can’t believe it to be true. We wish there was something unattainable to achieve success. So we can at the very least avoid blaming ourselves for not doing so in our lives.
When it comes to obtaining our goals and ambitions. It is imperative that we have a daily routine or an established system that removes all obstacles and aspects of distraction. A system so simple we dare not believe that is all it takes to reach nirvana.
What defines this culture of toxic productivity?
What is this toxic productivity culture? Why is it bad for someone to want to improve themselves? Get better at time management or have control over their days and intern their lives? There is an invisible line that we can cross here. And everyone’s line is different to an extent. Here I will outline what turns self-improvement, productivity or systems into toxic productivity.
A simple way to organise your life
It starts with tracking your life and obligations. However, if you choose to track or write down your obligations the better. We want as least friction and distraction as possible. If someone says an event is happing on this date. You need a system to record that event and date it with ease. An just as easily retrieve that data and see it on a regular base. “If you want to master a habit, the key is to start with repetition, not perfection. You don’t need to map out every feature of a new habit. You just need to practice it.” – James Clear
If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
If you say and talk enough, you will occasionally come up with some gems. But just because you said one or two plus things well over your lifetime, doesn’t mean people should religiously listen to you. Quality over quantity. Junk food will occasional have a satisfying bit, but if all we eat what they are serving, then we will surely be malnourished.
What is wrong with living a life of mundanity?
What is wrong with living a life of mundanity? Why always strive to make a difference, to create, to have a legacy? Why do we believe that we must be more than what we are? Why do we subconsciously strive to live past our own lifespan? Is it possible to accept our average life like an ant in a colony, a bee in a hive? We are just a tiny aspect. So why do we feel shame and guilt when we just live; and experience, void of productivity?
This is an attempt at writing down my thoughts as they come to me. The idea of subconscious writing alludes me. These words, where are they coming from? When have I heard them, or thought of them? Is it possible that just the act of writing brings them into existence? Which brings me to the question, why do we do the things we do? Where do thoughts and ideas come from? How am I and what makes me; me?
