Learning Through The Steps Of An Ant.

Well, 2013. Happy New Year. And congratulations for making it this far. No mysticism about how everything erupted in the last decade starting with the obvious technological advancements and a wider reach of accessibility for the privileged. Ha! On a positive note, if there is a time for positive outlooks and thinking, it is now. The world needs it. Most of all, YOUR WORLD needs it. I believe we still did a few things right, should you look back once more. Well, I must admit (its hard to notice), yet we pressed and kept on and served ourselves right. Form-wise, as people in a community and a broader sense of society, the guts was there. Process-wise, count your infirmities. It is this lack of understanding that our circumstances snowballs onto both extremes if you don't have a careful eye for detail. Hyundai and Kia Cars and their respective diligence would and should be esteemed for being (I believe) the new business model application and attitude for any business company venture in a generic sense (and style,right?!). How so? Well, Japan and Germany did it first with innovations both in corporate design and popular media standards after just under 50 years since WWII and their markets up to this day remains unbreakable due to 'ant-form' labour mentality. It is a breathe of fresh air for those who should apply this mindstate. Its the only precept of age-old that was never done right by most (due probably to not heeding any form of restraint) except a few who had no other choice. This is the last stride if we ever needed one. We know the world as it was, and now, as it is,
and eating our apples and the decisions we make after it is as much of a catch phrase without its application. The church is losing its appeal, governments are scattered, and the third world is overflowing with Apple products. The only solid basis and grounds we need and can only take are the basic definitions of simplicity and a genuine respect for where we are at as people and our basic society duties. We'll lose it all eventually if we fail to practice what we preach. The urgency has never been so great but it doesn't mean we won't (if not we can't) accept the little important things like eating breakfast first before a cigarette. You know what I mean??:) There are endless paths but understanding and wisdom is the only thing that can point us to our blindspots and how to deal with our weaknesses. After the process, it should be all in the land of milk and honey. Let us all pray for we are not immune to this.

The business of doing & simple daily practices that enhances productivity.

What's productivity? How do you define its measure? How do you view it based on your priorities? What decides where you put your focus, time & energies on? These questions are what we most often quietly ask ourselves in our subconscious though often times, due to debris, fail to hear our most distinct voices as we are choked by the things & concerns of this world. My field of interest (sometimes a little obsessive, which is ok), being the general creative industries, specifically in music, its very difficult to see things as they appear & personally, I pray everyday to gain clarity within it all as a daily creative. We are in the age of free media, & for the musician, that's generally not what we want. Its not reasonable to pursue the record industry due to exhausted business models caused by the internet. On the other hand, its the most important thing in my life, though however questionable. Not because there's no income from it, but just because of the b…

What the technology surge means to the creative.

You've heard it before but it doesn't mean we all get the final picture. For the creative arts industry & record business, technology advancement has dictated our attitudes to our craft & what limits we put on our practice/s. For the artist, its been a great step up in terms of access to recording technologies not needing to much more than a soundcard & a computer. But, what it meant for the business is an out-pour of recorded works that diminished in demand strictly due to volume. Hence, the lack of what the current demand is also dictated the worth of even the best of artists in the recording industry that led to under-valued price tags just so streaming platforms can get their feed. That's ok with me for I have only really knew how to get by doing my own thing. But to the greats, its big business lost. & now, we all have grown to accept it. & it breaks 'fairness & due credit' where its due & really sad to have functioned on the dragon…
