Busy Is A Decision
Someday I'm gonna get brave enough to tattoo this on my body. So then whenever one of my students say, I'm sorry, I didn't do that, I didn't get a chance, I was too busy, I just pull up my sleeve and say read this. Busy is a decision. And this is something you really need to think about. I don't know if anybody's ever seen the movie "Revolutionary Road" or read the book Revolutionary Road. And it's really at its heart, it's a story about a couple that keep telling themselves that, if they could they would do this other thing, and then they never do. And even when at the end of the movie, one of the protagonist is left with the possibility of being able to do the very thing that he's been saying the whole, his whole life that he wanted to do, he still doesn't do it. We do the things that we want to do. We buy the things that we wanna buy, we create the things that we wanna make, we don't, not because we're too busy, ever, cause it's not enough of a priority. This was the sort of tough t...
alk I said that I was gonna share with you. If you are not making the worth that you wanna make, is because you don't wanna make it. And you have to be honest with yourself. If you say, I don't know where I can find the time, maybe stop watching Game of Thrones or maybe do the work while you're watching Game of Thrones with background noise. I do a lot of my work with Law and Order SVU Reruns on a lot, it's you know, me and Mariska, we got it going on. So think about what you want to do, you cannot as Maria Popova from Brain Pickings has said, you don't find time, you make time. So if you want to do something, come clean with yourself. Why, ask yourself, why am I not doing it? Am I too afraid? Then think about their reptilian brain, you're never gonna be in a place where you're like, ooh, let's do this the experimental work, I've been dying to do my whole life, it's gonna be amazing. You have to decide that you want to do it even with all of that fear there. And if you use busy as an excuse, what's gonna happen? If not now, when? If not now, when? When do you do it? Cause after Game of Thrones, then Homeland is gonna start. So busy is a decision.
Ratings and Reviews
I was not expecting to get so much out of this accelerated class! Debbie is a captivating speaker who manages to get her points across directly while maintaining a strong sense of relatability with her audience. I really look forward to taking what I have learned here with me as I move forward in my career as a visual artist. Highly recommended.
This class is for a specific audience - young or new-to-the-field designers. It is NOT a branding class for the regular person. The class description is misleading. However, there are bits and tips that anyone can benefit from, but you have to sit through the entire presentation to get those bits and tips. I am not a designer. Because I had the all-access pass, I dipped in and out of different classes, speeding up and skipping as needed. I found enough value in this Fast Class: A Brand Called You to watch it, rather than the long one. I can see how this would benefit new designers as they job hunt.
