The happiness trap: How to win the battle between money and meaning

“If you’re using your passion and skills to help others, but not making money, then this is solely a hobby or pro bono work, not a business.

If you want to build a business, then you can’t avoid the fact that you’ll need to start making money. If you battle with charging for something you love doing, then you have work to do.

If you’re in this group it’s time you started to act, and think, more like an entrepreneur:

  • Develop a different money mindset

  • Learn about different business models

  • Discover proven approaches to boost your income

  • Get access to some simple yet powerful tools

“Money is like a mirror, showing you who you want to be. In the mirror you see the reflection of the free you, the secure you, the enabled you. So you believe money really is those things. You see those powers when you look at money.” Tom Nixon

The game

Putting the work in the middle, has always been important to me, because otherwise whats the point, right?

As a lover of data and flow charts, I been trying to find a work model that is clear, repeatable, scalable, and long term. Basketball seemed like a good metaphor for the game.

How do I use this chart?

Sometimes when I have to deal with different disciplines i get confused or overwhelmed. looking at the chart brings a sense of order. its ok to take care of a store / dealer/ student/ dealer / project issues all in one day, just same of the same list. It also reminds me that the prize is the work in the middle …

Giving form vs giving birth

I learned about natural birth through five labors .

I never thought this could be of any use in my art blog but here we are.

I was invited on FB to a group called giving form and than It clicked - how did I not see it before?

yes, its the same.

why how where ? ??

kind of everything about it really.

take the famous pushing scene from all the movies. its false.

In natural birth we let it flow like the river. you are not to push, it comes out by itself, you are to not disturb, find the position most comfortable and make room for it.

Art? Birth? same …

about work

Dealing with form color and scale as a path towards sustainable liberation, my process is a funny one because I’m actually a perfectionist doomed to fail, over and over again. Hunted by the powers in play, I choose submission over the illusion of having a choice. When not complaining I know I’m a surfer riding one of the most amazing waves there is, When I do catch a good one, Its connecting me to eternity, Universal knowledge and all my previous and future lives, worth it. so here I am, doing the only thing im good for. catching waves.
