    #15 Hilarious reaction. No cyberneticist should be without a sense of humour - it would screw up fractal integrity! As for your da Vinci's structural resonance and Spirit and invention considerations. . . you're reaching way beyond my comprehension. As Pooh would say. I'm but a bear of little brain. . .

    #10 Though I appreciate your respect for Leonardo, I beg to differ on his training regimen. He was apprenticed to Andrea del Verrochio in his mid teens. He learned to both paint and sculpt with a heavy concentration on the rigours of rendering the figure. He then stayed on as an assistant to Verrochio until 1478 when he started his own studio at the age of 26.

    Interesting how the individual who came up with the technique of perspective in drawing was 'just an artist' to his contemporaries, even if later on he went on to build unprecedented inventions and create the anatomical diagrams that have survived up to our time. This artista didn't have any formal training and yet managed to outperform most profesdional artists and engineers since the Rennaissance times where he lived. You may have heard of him. His name was Leonardo da Vinci.

    #7 Dear Paul. Not necessarily. I entered a world where everyone expected me to have to compromise . I didn't. At 9 I chose to become a portrait painter (much to the consternation of my father!) I wanted to earn my living doing what I loved to do. And so, I was determined to be recognized for portraits by "Poulin" not by everyone who thought they could tell me how. I have therefore rarely shown a work in progress to a client. My mantra is that they chose me to do a portrait - so let "me" do the job "my" way. Otherwise, I send clients to someone else who is willing to compromise. This old buzzard isn't ready to do that yet. . . :)

    Amateurs remind us of where we were. Those horrifying days of low confidence and minimal acceptance. But we have arrived now, we have confidence and enough of a following that we feel vindicated from the amateur title.

    Amateurs are the fruit of life. We know their journey if we share a common theme of existence. The journey will be one of enlightenment, challenges and surprise victories. Every new adventure carries this cycle. The peanut gallery lurking in the shadows poking at the journey have lost their sense of adventure. They have arrived, not sure where, but they think it is a place of success.

    I envy the "amateur". They have before them the (another) journey of a life time. I have pity for those who have arrived, they have parked at something that others deem as success and lost their appetite for starting new adventures or becoming an amateur again.

    Great post and i enjoyed the perspective.

    #4 Agree. If only we were all happy just being who we are and doing with pleasure what we do. But in our sad day and age, we are star struck and those who do not feel like they are stars but wish to be seen so often spend a lot of time and energy trying to be seen to "be" one (a star, that is). Happiness is focusing on doing not being.

    What comes to mind is an amateur golfer - someone who has never turned professional or won a professional major championship. IMO, that doesn't make them any less talented than a pro. I agree with @Aleta Curry View more
    What comes to mind is an amateur golfer - someone who has never turned professional or won a professional major championship. IMO, that doesn't make them any less talented than a pro. I agree with @Aleta Curry where the amateur was greatly appreciated. An amateur may signify a young but extremely talented person trying to move up the ranks.

    If a person is happy and proud of what they are doing, then being referred to as an amateur or an artist should not make them feel as an ordinary or lesser person. Close

    Excellent, @Bernard Poulin. Interestingly, I have always moved in at least one sphere where the amateur *was* greatly appreciated: Dog Fancy (how many people make their whole living showing and breeding dogs, yet it's a respectable and multi-million dollar business), Acting (the Pantomime and Repertory system forms, though of course we now have actors with degrees disdaining those without) and even my academic disciplines, Film and History (consider the role of the amateur in Historical Recreation, Costumes, Artisans and craft skills) and now, in Antiquing - well, any antiques dealer who doesn't know that sooner or later s/he'll run into an amateur collector who knows more about the specialised field than the dealer does, is either deluded or a moron.

    What an interesting post Bernard. I see an 'art' in many of the things I do, whether it results in a painting, a story, a cold/boring dining room turned into a winter wonderland for the enjoyment of military personnel, or (and I mean this absolutely;) designing reporting metrics for the logistics department or a tracking system for a retails sales department. All these come from the same part of me. I step back and in my mind's eye I see the painting, or I watch the story unfold, or I see how to simplify an excel spreadsheet so that it can contribute to the company long after my 'contract to work' has ended. It is this inner designer's eye that allows me to turn the most mundane of tasks into my 'art'.
    It is explaining this concept of 'art' that is the most difficult and most often met with those oh so frustrating smiles of tolerance. It is those 'tolerant' snobs that just don't grasp that design, is design, is design, and it all originates from the same place within the artist and the 'results' are in fact irrelevant, it is enough that it satisfies that need to 'create'. Other's definitions of 'artists' aren't really that important when the artist's 'need' is satisfied. I chose long ago to see their not understanding as being a source of amusement. I 'get it' and that's all that matters.

    @Dawn Kieran, there are a million cliches that I could share with you, but I will refrain. I could say that I understand how you feel. But I don't. But I do understand sinking into that abyss and feel that the weight on your chest is so heavy that you are gasping for air. I understand struggle and I understand pain. Each person's experience is different. You are taking brave first steps - putting how you feel into words. @Irene Hackett is right. It is cathartic, and I can tell you from my own experience that it does help. I started writing in 2015. My mom had passed away the year before and I wrote from a broken and sad place. But between writing, exchanging stories, and making sure that I made time a certain number of days a week to get out and walk has brought me to a much happier and healthier place in my life. It isn't easy. And some days, it just plain stinks. But I believe that each day is an opportunity. And each day that we fight the fight, we grow stronger. When my husband was diagnosed with Cancer in 2007, some days felt completely overwhelming. On those days, I tackled life an hour at a time. The point is, do what works for you. Even if it is only 10 minutes a day where you take a walk, meditate, or write, expend that energy for you. I wish you well, Dawn.

    So much change and pain, @Dawn Kieran. It is almost impossible to make a decision in those circumstances that is a forward action, not a reaction. Perhaps just breathe into where you are right now. Everything almost never changes at once.

    Focus on your health, as you seem in a good place, with smart priorities. And then, as you are smartly doing. Write about it. Everything. Explaining it to others is sometimes how we best explain things to ourselves.

    Much happened to me this last year out of the blue. I tried to rush to a future and caused problems I did not foresee.

    I think it's true that we learn greed and acquisition. It's all around us and, instead of being vilified, the television networks, movies—even books— treat it as a "must" in our society. We know Donald Trump is a racist bore, but his voter base will always come back, saying, "Yeah, but he's a billionaire." How that makes him presidential material is beyond me, except that we seem to need "father or mother figures," and that seems to suggest that billionaire racists are more appropriate parents than, say, a Bernie Sanders, who feels we should "work together."

I'd add something as simple as watching a random TED talk, completely outside the arenas of knowledge you stick to, can open vast new ways of being. My favorite off-the-beaten-path talk is about Crow Vending Machines > https://www.ted.com/talks/joshua_klein_on_the_intelligence_of_crows?language=en

    Embracing the slow zone
    Embracing the slow zoneI don’t know about you, but this week I have been feeling a little low in energy and a bit emotional. This is in stark contrast to last week when I felt unstoppable and was operating at full-speed. The shift in how I was feeling came without warning...

    Really great article @Tanya Wasylewski. For the majority of today'society we live fast, too fast sometimes, and often we forget that the body gets exhausted(be it emotionally or physically)and needs time to recharge . I for one relish in taking a few moments a day to slow down and give into a few minutes where the everyday stresses are not welcome. To quote the incredibley wise Ferris Bueller - "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Thanks for posting!

    One good thing to do is to let the emotions be, if we put them under the carpet they will never go!

    I agree @Tanya Wasylewski in order to continue, we have to stop! I mean, having some time for yourself and letting your feelings flow is sometimes the most positive decision we can make.

    Interesting post. You had my interest at Star Wars. Obviously you don't need a light sabre to cut through the fog of burnout. As you say, from time to time we may need your 5Rs to leave the dark side behind. But if we really can't reconstruct, repair or rekindle our thirst for what we are doing, then perhaps we need to jump ship and re-incarnate ourselves? May the force be with you.

    #3 True... with my contributions I was the youngest innovation champion in the vertical and was properly rewarded with opportunities. However misfortune comes unexpectedly and from unexpected sources at times. My problem came to be when the client wanted to retain me against my wishes of growing to a better tool, technology and project.

    How Purnima lost her groove...Can you help her find it?I believe I have the makings of a Pollyanna.  And that's helped me when chips are down. But here is one situation that I am still trying to fix my groove. Maybe I will in a few months..We'll see :-)..I am extremely passionate about a certain art...

    I have not doubt Purnima that you will find your groove, because nothing teaches us a lesson like a failure. They asked you back so they know it was a one time thing more than likely exasperated by the last minute 'inprov' warning. You were 'star struck' by the 'professionals, we are all there in some capacity. There was a sentence you used that I use whenever I mentor someone at work: "•Understand the big picture. No matter how small you think your part is." It's how I work at whatever I'm doing, whether it's a passion or a career. I need to know the WHY in addition to the HOW. Great read, I enjoyed it very much and loved the makeup!

    Are you perhaps being too self critical of your original performance @Purnima Menon ? Surely the audience of Kathakali take equal delight in seeing the colourful make-up and costumes, and you certainly seem to have met expectations there, if your photos are anything to go by. If you were really as bad as you think you were first time round, then why would the organisers have asked you back? Practice always makes perfect, so onwards and upwards. As they say in stage business "break a leg!" Wouldn't life be so dull if we could master everything we try first time?
