A couple of years ago I was listening to a talk at BVN by another blogger. I think the specific subject was dealing with rejection, growing as a blogger and consistent improvement. I think most bloggers and photographers are always looking for ways to improve their craft but she has some very wise words for the bloggers in the audience and, generally as a life tool. She told a story about a colleague at work who gave her some sage advice when she was feeling low about not being at the level she wanted to be at in terms of performance.
She explained that whenever you learn something new, from blogging to playing a sport etc you have to accept that you cannot be a 1 from the start. Everyone starts as a 5 with the aim of being a 1. She advised to break down how you thought about getting to where you want to be into 5 parts and accept that you will start at the bottom of 5 and your goal should be to get to the top of 5, as she put it, be the best damn 5 you can be. Once you feel you are the top of your 5 game then you can start to work on being a 4, again accepting a bottom 4 is still an improvement on a top 5 and so on and so on.
So, while we’re on the subject of evolving, the new Evolve Event opens today at noon slt. It’s an in store, hud based, hop-a-round event with a heavy bias to new, emerging and upcoming designers across the Second Life grid. Seraphim have joined forces with Love to Decorate to bring the power behind two of the biggest promotional platforms on Second Life to the event to highlight up and coming original talent.
