I: Isn’t it fun getting better at the job?
C: it is
I: isn’t that the main strand of your career that you’re getting better at the job
C: well, it could only get better, it couldn’t get worse
Inspiration of the week is a chat by Cate (C) Blanchett and Sir Ian (I) McKellen in Actors on Actors show (link)
They were discussing about things they are not so good at (geez, they are so humble, o’rite). Cate replied Ian that she feels they just need to be asked by someone to do it (as a challenge for themselves)
In imaginary world, if I’m an actor, I think my bosses will be the director of the show. They are the one who set the movie direction. And I just need to do my best as certain role in the movie.
I’m guessing that directors also have their own unique style, perhaps like Quentin Tarantino or Michael Bay or Peter Jackson.
Clashes are unavoidable and uncontrollable, but our respond to it is controllable. As there was a conflict happened this week and I can’t help to keep thinking about it. I kept asking why to myself to the extent it hounded me.
However listening to Cate and Ian, I feel that after it’s all happened in the past, their present self can just laugh at it. They grew from their past self.
The image of 7 deadly sins comic starts to appear in my mind when I was hounded by the incident. That I was activating Pride and Wrath in me. And what I need to activate is Acceptance now. So, don’t feel angry or sad, just be better. One step at a time.
Thing happens for a reason. As always.
Ask and you’ll be given. Whether it’s something important for your growth or the answer to your problem.
What do you think?
Doesn’t time feel so fast passing by when you are in the last quarter of the year?
I flipped through my agenda and find that October inspiration page was blank. Although I had my October filled with activities.
November, on the other hand, has been giving me valuable lessons. It also the M-1 for the big event early Dec.
