[ 1 min read ] Crisis forces you to think about the reduction of fixed costs and other expenses, and also about the replacement of costly solutions with cheaper or free ones. Much of what you will realize during the crisis will benefit you for long. The money which you... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] There is a problem with this approach I described yesterday, someone could say. If we really assumed that there is nothing a person can get pissed at (that getting pissed at someone else doesn’t make sense after you’ve realized that in you there are potentially... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] In each situation, in crisis too, there is value to be found. If you look at crisis as something entirely negative and you’ve just been dealt a solid kick in the ass, then you will not be able to get yourself together again. If, on... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] I realized something yesterday. Getting pissed at someone is a very difficult thing (I would even say entirely impossible) if you keep in mind that the person you want to get pissed at (of course, we don’t do that on purpose, get pissed at someone... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] No crisis lasts forever. This seems obvious, and still, many people can’t think about it that way when in crisis. A proper perspective will give you the strength to go through this difficult period and bounce back when it’s over. - PL: Żaden kryzys nie... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] Crisis significantly changes the reality of the world (status quo). The expectation that life in crisis and after the crisis should equal the life before the crisis (the reality which you got used to) will very soon finish you off mentally. - PL: Kryzys ma... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Diary of an artist, Thursday, March 26, 2020 #609 (countdown) — Woke up 4:30 am. Although I imagine that the crisis caused by COVID-19 will be immense I am not at all frightened by it. I am certain that I will be able to find... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] The acceptance of the fact that you don’t have a total control over your life and that you will never have such control will help you immensely when in crisis and in life after the crisis. Sure, we make certain choices and those choices (decisions)... Continue reading

[ 1 min read ] The thing which can help a person the most in a crisis (and after) is the awareness that that's what life looks like. That this is a normal life. Someone promised you something? That in your life there will be no crisis? - PL: To... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Diary of an artist, Wednesday, March 25, 2020 #610 (countdown) — Woke up 4:30 am. I’m starting a new series on my blog. It’s called “my guide to life in crisis” and in it I will share my thoughts, ideas and advice for the crisis... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] At the present, a different version of the question I mentioned in my yesterday’s post could be asked. In connection with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) would you choose to be hibernated (or frozen) until the situation all over the world is under control and we’re certain that... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] I think one of most interesting questions one can ask himself or herself is the following one. “Let’s suppose you have some health issue, which isn’t curable today, but might be curable in the future (let’s say in 50 years) and let’s say you’re 50... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I’m thinking about all the people who have almost overnight lost their jobs in the recent weeks all over the world. We only hear statistics about people who have been infected and who have died, and who are hospitalized, and who have mandatory quarantine. What... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] Diary of an artist, Thursday, March 19, 2020 #611 (countdown) — Woke up 4:30 am. Started writing texts in the Polish language. Sometimes I translate the texts I wrote previously in English, but they are very loose translations, but I also add a lot of... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Something occurred to me when I was listening to the interview Prince (The Artist) gave in 1999 on Larry King Live. Larry asked Prince (then 42 years old, now dead) Do you feel 42? I see a problem with this question. And it is a... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] This is a flawed question and I’m baffled how most people can’t see this basic flaw. If I would go back 40 years (or 30, or 25, or 20 — doesn’t matter; the idea, as I understand it, to go back to one’s late teenage... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] Andy Warhol said: An artist is somebody who produces things that people don’t need to have but that he — for some reason — thinks it would be a good idea to give them. I think it’s BS. I think people need the things artists... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I think comparing yourself to those past or present giants / geniuses / people who have (had) something which had been in the past or has been recently declared unparalleled in all human history, something which definitely nobody else will ever have, or who produced...

[ 3 min read ] I think not believing in yourself is the worst. And, as I said, most of us live in cultures where traditionally cockiness is discouraged (cockiness analysed ex post, when someone already is a successful human being in the conventional sense, is never something that bothers...

[ 5 min read ] What I said in my previous two posts is significant. Sometimes we can go crazy when someone refuses to see the reality the way we see it, or even admit that we might have a point. That what we say isn’t completely without merit. That... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] People who are unable to see a certain thing / event / situation the way you see it can also so abhor the other reality (the other possible interpretation of events) that they’re ready to completely reject something which other people say they saw with... Continue reading

[ 5 min read ] There is something interesting I realized just now. I might have written a piece or two about it in the past (not sure about it — there are so many pieces that I just can’t remember it all), so maybe I realized it earlier, and... Continue reading

[ 2 min read ] People limit in their heads what they’re capable of because we live in a culture which fights cockiness in ordinary people (whereas it allows it in those who have achieved a lot and are deemed successful — which is inconsistent to say the least; actually... Continue reading

[ 4 min read ] What I wrote yesterday very often leads to us being intimidated by the ability of those whose grandeur is assumed and is almost never questioned. Because it’s taboo to do that. We end up believing that what those people did or thought (their ideas or... Continue reading

[ 3 min read ] I think a lot of people (a vast majority actually) are intimidated by the grandeur of certain individuals. Those who had been proclaimed the greatest geniuses, the geniuses, the greatest masters, the masters, the greatest thinkers / writers / painters / composers / actors /... Continue reading
