Writing 3 – If You Want to Learn Something

#DoMore #Creator #Consumer

I used to use #film #camera back in 1990s. I was that trip photographer because I was asked to or I was just a curious soul wanted to experience thing. Until 2010s, I started to explore #digital photography. I learned it by reading user #manual. (Why not YouTube? You might ask. Well, YouTube is too random and repetitive. You would waste too much time on searching for content than sitting and following the manual).
Plus, the more time you spent on consuming materials, the less time you put them into action. The best way to learn is to do while digest some basics. You do not need to know every part of the engines to drive a car.

You should know that some fundamentals are enough to get you started. But the love of the progress is what keeps you motivated to keep going.

As an #introvert, I have a lot of hobbies, #photography one of them which encourages me to #explore more, #do more, #meet more and #enjoy life more. I meet different people from different backgrounds, travel 7 countries within 2 years and do things I have not done before.

#Takeaway:

It is never late to learn or do something. Who knows, what you learn as a hobby might end up as a career.

Find #three hobbies you love:

One to make you #money (for me: writing, content creation, internet marketing)

One to keep you in #shape (cycling, yoga)

and One to be #creative (photography, videography)

Learn to create. You are happier to be a creator than consumer. The difference is that creator has end goal and satisfaction while consumer will always consume (no limits) and get disappointment. Plus creator makes money πŸ’° while consumer pays money πŸ’°.

What is your approach to learn something?
What keeps you motivated to keep moving, growing and have fun at the same time?

Writing 2 – Look Back or Look Ahead?

#LoveYourLife #life #past #present #future

Written and published via my phone

Today we explore about how we see ourselves as time goes by.

There are different ways to look at life.
Some does it by looking ahead while some looks back. There is no right or wrong way to do it. It’s just that we do it differently.

The past that we look at taught us about failures, growth, the good and the bad, but most importantly the appreciation.

We now do it right by first we did it wrong and learned from it.

We had good friends who now are away from us for some reasons (live in different places…) made us appreciate and treasure the moment while we are together and blah blah. You get the points.

Past can be a pain to be forgotten or a sweet memory to treasure but you should not dwell on it.

As the saying goes, “You cannot start a new chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one.”

Future is what we should look ahead but let us not forget moment to appreciate and enjoy the present.

John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

While Jim Rohn said a similar one, “Learn how to be happy with what you have while you pursue all that you want”.

Make every moment counts, then count every blessings we make or have been given.

Bonus quotes:

“Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward.”

“Life is not just the passing of time. Life is the collection of experiences and their intensity”, Jim Rohn.

Whom do you miss the most?
What/who makes you laugh today?
To whom are you talking tomorrow?

Writing 1 – Happy Year 2020 and Day 1 of 1000 Writing Journey

#Day1 #Writing1000 #1000daychallenge

Happy Year 2020 everyone! πŸŽ†
Welcome to day 1 of 1,000 writing journey.
Thanks to those who keep coming back often in 2019.
I am grateful for everything in 2019 offered.

I am self aware that my writing needs improvement.
Writing 1,000 or #Writing1000 is a journey I commit myself to write a blogpost at least one a day in 1,000 days. “Because I rather write a meh one a day rather than a perfect one in 10 years…blah, blah, blah…” Nah, whatever the reason is, I just do to do whatever I want.

Now here is what I want to share:

[Word of the Day: Appreciate]

πŸ“š I read a book by Harvard professor, Happier by Tal Ben-Shahar.

#Takeaway
Most of us took life and everything around us for granted. Even worse, the pace of today life is too fast/busy to slow down to #appreciate life moment.

You are happier and have more to be grateful for than you realize.

What are you grateful for today?

✍️ Write 5 things that you are grateful by the end of the day (before going to sleep), learn to keep this as a journal from now on. Review it everyday and every week. You’ll find yourself happier and have a lot of things to be grateful for.

I am more a private person and always express rather than impress anyone.
But for example sake, I’d express mine here.

πŸ™ 1. I am grateful for my family for “Unconditional Love”. They teach me what “Unconditional Love” really means.

πŸ™ 2. I am grateful for myself for not giving up and keep myself growing personally and professionally. I had more downs than ups for the last three years. Sometimes, there are things you can control, and things you cannot. Looking back, I am proud to myself. How did I do it? I am myself surprised, too. You should take some time to reflect yourself. You are braver, stronger, smarter… than you realize.

πŸ™ 3. I am grateful for Google Keep and its team for letting me keep my journal.

πŸ™ 4. I am grateful for my phone for making my life easier. As a minimalist and a nomad, I do my best to own only what I need. I can do a lot of things with my phone (writing, reading, video making, editing…) I no longer read a paper book as I move from place to place with one tiny bag. I shoot personal photos on the phone more than camera, except for client’s project.

πŸ™ 5. I am grateful for time with my family today. Everyone is here.
