A list of 100...

January 06, 2015


I've noticed that much of what's written these days is in point form.
  •  10 Reasons Why ...
  •  10 Steps To...
  • 7 Reasons Why List Posts Will Always Work 
... and I'm not even kidding about that last one. Real. Blog. Post.

And each New Year they overflow.
Two caught my eye.

This one ... reviewing something called "The 100 Thing Challenge" wherein you reduce all your worldly possessions down to just 100 things. (is that even possible?!? where does one live? in a garden shed?!?)

Clear the clutter with 'The 100 Thing Challenge'


And this one ... a list, one hundred strong, of share-worthy statements to help a newbie artist on their path.

What I find when confronted with really really long lists however, is my brain scrambles to the bottom in order to know exactly how long the thing is ...rather how long I have to pay attention.

Sad that.

So.
For today, I will clean off my work table where I'm sure to get rid of at least FIVE things.
And ponder these:
  • If you're at a loss for what to do next, do a self-portrait. 
  • All doors open to a hard push. 
  • If art is hard, it’s because you’re struggling to go beyond what you know you can do.
It's a start!
