Big Chair, Small Meditation.

Here is "Big Chair, Small Meditation," the ceramic piece of the day.

After re-reading the 50 habits of successful people, I thought I would share a few more from the list. These are so cool. I think I might do an art piece about each one of these every day for 50 days.  Would anyone like to join?

11.They align themselves with like-minded people.
 12. They are ambitious.

 13. They have clarity and certainty about what they want.

 14. They innovate instead of imitate.

15. They don't procrastinate.

16. They are life-long learners.

17. They are glass half full people, while still being practical and down-to-earth.

18. They consistently do what they need to do, regardless of how they are feeling on a given day.

19. They take calculated risks.

20.They deal with problems quickly and effectively.

Killer great piece!
Have yet to see anything that you've created that wasn't amazing.

Thanks for noting these "Habits".
They seem to sear right through the Mind Chatter and yell :
"Do it!!" close range.

Love that you've caught the Blogging spirit.

I adore "Big Chair, Small Chair". I have had the one with the pierrot (is that right?) in your profile pic on my mind ever since I saw it. I want it. Bad. I have a collection of these clowns from waaaay back. That is my fave of far ;).

I have been thinking of doing something each day with 1 of the 50. They are so right on that I am STILL excited from yesterday. Something in them really hit a chord in me. I keep thinking about how I can put each one into a piece so that each one gets more individual in my head. Does that make any sense?

#15 is the killer. I decided in the past that it is almost impossible to procrastinate once you get in the groove (is that dated? zone? ;) So, basically, never sit down, and it is good for the waistline.

I am getting up now, really I am!

PS am taking the art biz class with Judy Wise ( 6 weeks-ish
