#10thingsthatareattractive has Twitter-verse all a twitter… and I thought it was sufficiently engaging to repurpose for this weeks Creative Challenge. The challenge is to list out and share the top ten things you think are attractive – think about it! Here is my list:
- My Wife
- Long Legs
- Dark Haired Brunettes
- Eyes that sparkle
- Open Mindedness
- Being Genuine
Despite this stylish illustrated video being online for about 8 months, being fantastic, and already earning a lot of praise from like minded people I had not seen it before.
I’m pleased to report that I already do most of these things. Even so, I shall be more diligent about ensuring I practice them and cross them off my list. The following three from the list of 29 are definitely the outliers in terms of my lack of adoption.
7 – Sing in the shower
I’m pretty noisy in the shower… it may be possible to classify it as some sort of gregorian chant but that might be pushing the boundaries a little… I must do better.
21 – Break the rules
I tend to be a rule follower most of the time. However I did do that video mashup of Sabrina and Lord of the Rings… maybe that counts?
23 – Read a Page of the Dictionary
This is an excellent idea. I’m going to read one page of the dictionary every night before bed.
Are you doing any of these things? Any ones you are not currently doing that you are brave enough to try?
This is a fantastic video, thank you TO-FU.
Earlier this week I acknowledged that there was something lacking in my SMART News Year’s resolution model. By adopting the SMART technique it means that some of the overarching, higher level, bigger picture goals aren’t explicitly captured… these north stars are relegated to the land of the implied.
In my professional world of suits and ties here is how we would tackle this problem. We would take my list of SMART goals and categorize each of them under a heading, probably called a “Strategic Outcome”, so for instance you might do something like this:
Strategic Outcome: Increase Professionalism of Writing
- Join Victoria Writing Society in January
- Get published somewhere other than Exploring-Art.com this year
- Complete a writing portfolio submission… by December
But that would not be very artful! So instead what I did is I wrote a companion poem to go with my SMART goals. Defy pigeonholes, embrace individuality and explore your passions – be brave! Without further ado, here’s my poem:
Three hundred and sixty five days make a year
Fear as always
Is the predominant barrier
Be brave – profess your goals
I must pursue writing with a professional rigour
I will spend effort, resources and time
into a noteworthy cultural endeavour
I shall romance my darling wife and will also
pursue a healthy and nonjudgmental life.
