Recently, I was asked:
“What best motivates you to take action?”
My impulsive response:
“Witnessing people doing what they love and connecting with others.”
This helped me realize that a great deal of self-motivation is within my daily reach. It also helped me confront the truth that I haven’t sincerely been “reaching”.
I’m definitely among the masses that fear the decline of empathetic intelligence resulting from the internet and cell-phone era. I’ve spent a good amount of time contemplating ways to save the human race from turning into an idle circus of texts and “likes”. Despite the luxurious cons, social media and networking has undeniable plus sides – my most prized one being: It’s almost too easy to share work and progress with those you appreciate while also tuning into their work and progress. So, why not healthily take advantage of it all? Additionally, in asking myself this question, I discovered that (sometimes) one of the best things you can give a creative mind to ensure action, is a deadline.
So, my goal with “Sip & Sing”, is to strengthen my consistency as a writer and performer by posting a cover, snippets of a live show, or drafts of new originals as frequently as healthily possible.
I thank you greatly for stopping by and challenge you to navigate your means of motivation and map them into a route of taking action. Send me an update on what you discover – I’m all for new stories.
