Bindu Wiles and I shook it UP today and got all gritty talking about personal style, managing our intuition and shared our best practices for saying no gracefully. Check out her brilliant piece called Is Social Media High School All Over? for more groove-tastic thinking.
Big Bindu thoughts:
Strut your stuff, in your own way;
Be conscious about what you keep private and what you share with the world;
Get comfortable with criticism; it will set you free;
There are two kinds of pains in Buddhism: getting what you want and getting what you don’t want;
Artists must build muscles beyond hope and fear, praise and blame;
The role of the artist is to shake it up;
When you are self conscious about your work, it never works; and
Intuition NEVER waffles.
Check out a mash up video of our convo and more of Bindu’s fabulousness in this post.
It’s your turn! How do you turn the world on with your style? What are your best practices for managing your personal and public personae? Tell it in the comments, please.
Oh, and if you come up with a special name (watch to the end to find out what I’m talking about) for my bling, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send you a prize.
