Welcome to this week’s TGS where I round up a few of the great things I’ve found on the internets that mostly have to do with the art of creativity plus some video and photo stuff. Basically, the things I do.
As many of you know I’ve been very deep in a big project. All you need to know is that it’s an almost 6-minute video done all in After Effects. A lot of it is stuff I’ve never done before. It can get overwhelming fast.
A couple of weeks ago I listened to a podcast and the guest gave some career advice which he received from someone else. The advice was, “always take the best next step.” I thought it was really good advice not only for following a career path but also pushing a challenging project forward.
So the past three weeks when I would get overwhelmed, almost to the point of sudden physical illness, I would ask myself, “What is the next best step.” And do it. Don’t think about anything else other than that next step.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?
Also, My Co-Worker did a great job telling this incredible story. She’s a much better storyteller than I am. I’m grateful I’m able to work alongside of her. Watch “Lizzy Wampler’s Story on Vimeo” – It’s a little difficult to watch a young person suffer. But this girl was so courageous and faithful.
Love this quote…. “Stories give us scripts to follow.”
By learning to discover and value our ordinariness, we nurture a friendliness toward ourselves and the world that is the essence of a healthy soul.
~Thomas Moore (1779 – 1852)
I just bought some Apple Airpods. Do you have them? Do you like them? What should I know about using them? Post in the comments.
