Shiny "Outcome" Syndrome

1. Shiny Outcome Syndrome

I've heard about the "Shiny Object Syndrome" - Being attracted to different things/projects that appears shiny compared to the current ones you are committed to. I recently came across the term 'Shiny Outcome Syndrome' - Being distracted by different Outcomes in life. I.e one day, you wanna be a Comic artist and the the other an art YouTuber. Constantly jumping from one WANT to another. "The grass is seldom greener on the other side" - Anon.

2. Bedtime doodles

How to build a good solid habit? "Plant the seed in the right place" said BJ Fogg. Meaning, a habit can only grow if it is planted in the "right time of day", where it has the 'space' to grow. I've found that having my Sketchbook right on my bed side table with a pencil next to it seemed to be like the best place. And I doodle it out right before bed. 🛌 🌙 Doodles 👇


3. Favourite Quote and Question

"The desire for more positive experience is itself a negative experience. And, paradoxically, the acceptance of one’s negative experience is itself a positive experience" - Mark Manson


"What is the ONE thing that you could do for your Art, for the next 365 Days, such that by doing it, everything else becomes easier or unnecessary?"

That's it for this week folks! See you in the next one :) Best, Kesh.
