A few lines on life and happines

"We live in a culture of the quick fix. But great art rarely happens quickly; it comes from a long process of awareness and hard work."

"Happiness isn't your birthright, nor is it something you deserve. Happiness, like anything else, is work—it has to be earned. It occurs when a person creates the causes and conditions for its appearance and its growth. Having a way to check in with yourself to make sure you’re watering the seeds of happiness in your life and art, your own personal Gross Artistic Happiness index say, can help you stay on track and ensure a career that is focused, forward moving, rewarding, and joyful.

This man casually pushing his foldable bicycle through Cannon Street Station

This mindful design of tables for an outside sitting area

I remember a job I had a few years ago where everyday, at the end of the shift, we had to cram the all the tables in a tiny corner, and then put them back again in the morning when we would set the place up for the day. 

We had to use the space wisely and the best option was to put the tables one on top of the other. It was the most unsatisfying and dreaded part of the day. 

Someone very considerate at All Bar One in Victoria had the inspiration to buy - if not design - this tables. 

Such a brilliant idea! Not only it allows the  staff to work more effectively but also it's very aesthetic.

Top tip for effective communication

When something requires a reply, continue the conversation with contextual sentences. 

When something requires an answer, respond with a clear reply - whether offering the demanded information or stating your inability to offer a satisfactory answer. 

DONTS: Avoid answering with another question. Unless you need to clarify the question being asked, answering with another questions will block the conversation in a very distasteful manner.
