Strategy #9 - The Wrap Up
The key point to keep in mind when working through these stategies were that you are engaged in a personal reflections. You were reflecting and testing ideas in your everyday artist life. You were integrating them and building on them, in the light of your actual life expereinces.
For instance - Strategy # 6 - Redefining the Way You See Things, you start to notice the social definitions that rule many situations in your life. You begin to recognize how your behavior is shaped and controlled by the definitions in use:
"I'm an aritst" - thorefore I should be creating artwork like other artist - We now know this not to be true- An artist is a person who creates beautiful things - not what others have done before.
You start to see how important or unimportant social definitions are, you can start to redefine situations in ways that run contrary to your own life goals. And when you are able to redefine situations, you then are able to Get in Touch with Your Emotions. You can move on to recongnize the way you think generates the emotions you expereince. Redefining situations can empower you to learn from your emotional experiences.
This is the way to intergrate these strategies into your daily life. The more thought provoking you are about your life as an artist the more your begin to become an skilled and insightful thinking artist.
