7 Steps for Maintaining Motivation

1. Grasp that it’s YOUR life, and no-one else’s life.

2. Decide to “live on purpose”.

3. Recognise that achievement has a price tag attached to it – and decide you’ll pay that price.

4. Work on constantly maintaining your focus.

5. Chose a skill or a field and become competent, or an expert, in that area.

6. Find other people who will hold you to your goals – and will believe in, and encourage you, to strive to reach your dreams.

7. Consciously notice the progress you are making, and remind yourself “it’s worth it” as you’re further on the path.

Had a 24 hour stopover in Kathmandu, Nepal, where I visited the Pashupatinath Hindu Temple. The temple is popular with tourists, and the resident priests have become experts at ‘casually’ positioning themselves in oh-so-photographical arrangements. They then collect donations in exchange for 'authentic’ photographs. Motives aside, they do a beautiful job, and the scenes they create seem worthy of a Hollywood art director.

“I’m a consultant, but the clock’s ticking down until retirement. You get 35 years of recognition for doing something, and you see that coming to an end, and it forces you to think about your legacy. I’ll miss the constant feeling of solving problems and adding value. I get that feeling from my family, of course, but I worry about falling out of my routines. I’m afraid I’ll revert back to my twenties, when I was reading a lot but not doing very much. My wife is planning all sorts of hobbies to keep me busy. She intends for me to become an expert at cooking and gardening.”


 Splashed Watercolour Paintings By  Tilen Ti        

Watercolour paints have a fantastic way of capturing vital energy and ghostly shades of color that no other medium can, and Tilen Ti, an artist in Singapore, has become an expert at using watercolour paints to their fullest potential. The animals in his vibrantly colourful works seem to come to life on the page.

Ti focuses primarily on various tropical birds though he’s also painted more mundane creatures like cats and snails as well. He sells his paintings on Etsy, so be sure to check him out!  Etsy | Instagram | Tumblr | Deviantart

Let’s Speak English #110 - Recognition!

Splatoon is really popular with 3rd-5th grade boys atm especially! Every time there’s an art project, at least one or two squids sneaks in there.

But these properties come and go all the time, so the older teachers have become experts at ignoring that shit as much as possible XD

Meanwhile I’m waiting ‘til I get back to the US to grab a WiiU and try it out .__. I promised myself I’d only get portable consoles here~

Yahaba’s used to Kyoutani complaining about things.  One might even say he’s become a bit of an expert at dealing with an irritated Kyoutani (after all, all of the first and second years always leave him to Yahaba whenever he shows any burgeoning signs of annoyance).  He’s grown accustomed to each of his moods, his ticks, everything that sets him off.  

And yet, sometimes there are new things that he wouldn’t have expected to bother him.  When Kyoutani stomps up to him one day during lunch, when Yahaba’s enjoying what should be a relaxing break in the courtyard, all Yahaba can do is sigh and ask, “What now?”  He’s not expecting the response to be, “A mother dragged her daughter away from me today.”

Yahaba sits up, eyebrows raised.  “That’s bothering you?”

“Yeah. ‘Cause I don’t get it,” Kyoutani grumbles, dutifully taking his seat beside Yahaba.

Yahaba resists an urge to laugh, and a—possibly more frustrating—urge to reach out and smooth the furrow between Kyoutani’s brows with his thumb.  He clenches his fingers into a fist.  “Well, you’re an asshole,” he points out oh-so-helpfully.

Kyoutani’s scowl snaps over to him in an instant.  “You’re a bigger asshole than I am,” he snaps.  “And that’s beside the point; I didn’t even do anything this time.”

“You looked scary.  That’s enough to scare a poor mother away from—hey, what were you doing, anyways?”

Kyoutani’s scowl grows skittish, and he glances away from Yahaba.  “Doesn’t matter.”

Wanderer (Oliver+Laya)

Heaving a sigh, Oliver slid into the seat, hoping there was a way he could go unnoticed. It’d been a while since he’d seen bouncers at the door. Especially some shit place like this one. Luckily, he’d become an expert on sneaking in side and back doors. Was he old enough to be here? No. Did he particularly care? Bigger No.
His eyes landed on the stage, obviously setting up for some show - guitars, drums, the works - and smirked slightly. He’d picked a good night. He’d missed live music.
Stretching out long legs, crossing his ankles, he took a moment studying his worn boots. It was nice to be out of the heat, sitting in the cool, dim room. Maybe he’d stay until closing. Depending on how horrible the band was.
