Combining these two, because they’re kind of intrinsically related and the actually assignments for them are a bit muddled. Day 10’s was “Spark, finding inspiration.” Basically it just called on us to find something that interested us, made us curious. Of course, I totally hit the wall there, because my interests are so varied, I’m like that damn dog from “Up”… “Squirrel!” Day 11’s was “Fuel, finding what to feed that inspiration.” The assignment was to get up and find material that can get translated by the “spark” into fire. I broke the rules and jumped ahead going out for a walk, getting away from the computer, and trying to get some quiet.
“Don’t get carpal tunnel.” Basically simple exercises to strengthen posture and activate dormant upper body. Don’t know that this one was worth a blog post, but I’m putting this up out of a sense of completeness. Not so much an issue with me with the regular basic yoga I do and Aikido. However, I do have mousing issues due to my addiction to MMOs, specifically Wildstar. So the question becomes, how to deal with that.
“Find your success state.” The state’s basically described as being in “flow”, as it’s often called. We’re to bring up a memory of being in that state and then: describe what your body was doing in that state; and what was your mind doing while in that state; what were you feeling in that state. Flow to me is a pretty quiet state.
