    Fail to Succeed

    by Saul Edmonds
    folders-web.jpg

    ‘I didn’t fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.’

    (Benjamin Franklin, 1706-1790)

    In our broader society, ‘failure’ implies deficiency. Our culture places high stock on ‘winning’, ‘achievement’ and ‘success’ however providential.

    Yet wiser heads view life as a continuum, a sine curve, a graph where any worthwhile achievement has it’s lion’s share of trials and tribulations. Oftentimes, ‘failure’ is sharply applied towards ourselves if we do not ‘live up to our own expectations’.

    Creative Failure

    Creativity is a process. Works are revised and refined as we seek to produce meaningful and well resolved creative solutions.

    Failure’ is essentially due process and as such is an essential element of all innovation. A willingness to take risks characterises all genuine creatives - experimentation, trail and error, exuberant recklessness.

    Constructive failure should be readily embraced.

    In many ways our culture promotes an oppositional win/lose paradigm. This is limiting where both ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ are restricted by narrow notions of success. The reality is a broad panorama where benefit exists mostly in the process of trying.

    To avoid failure may be to avoid success.

      Creative Energy : 5 Tips for Creating The Best Day Ever

      by Saul Edmonds
      robot king-web.jpg
      • Energy carries an idea of motion and activity
      • Energy is a source of power. Life is energy
      • Our moments of momentum

      Creative Energy may be described as the concentration applied by an individual to the design and resolution of creative tasks.

      The ‘Best Day Ever’ as a notion is the recognition of a strongly positive event or sequence within a daily narrative.

      Understand your NRG

      In the spiral of increasing productivity, creative energy can become exhausted.

      ‘Chi’ means ‘vital energy’ in Chinese. Chi kung (also known as qi gong) is the science and practice of mastering the vital energies. Meaningfulness and power is achieved by controlling chi / energy. Focus is upon the breath, movement and mind. Creative energy is similarly best served by a disciplined inner and outward regimen.

      Consistency is a Virtue

      A ‘best day ever’ is the reward of desirable circumstance and intention. Use creative energy - every movement of body, every modicum of mind - to reinforce values and actions, and get the most from your day. To a marked degree, chi is a force charged with purpose, direction and positive attraction.

      5 Ways to Use Creative Energy to Create a Great Day

      Turn creative energy to practical use.

      1. Direct your Forces

      Think and speak only of that you wish to happen.

      The ‘Law of Intention’ states that deeply held thoughts and persistent action produce direct results. Attention must therefore be creatively applied. Seek to magnify that which is good and of worth. Remind yourself of your goal. Discipline your mind to focus on outcomes that realize your creative vision.

      2. Happiness is Happening

      Friendship is the root of happiness.

      Real friends are the greatest boon to a happy life. Use creative energy to focus on people. Pay attention, listen proactively and interact with everyone in a great way. It is amazing how much positive energy will come right back to you.

      3. Positive Energy (and Everything Matters)

      ‘A still tongue makes a wise head.’ (English Proverb)

      There are few things more counterproductive than negative thoughts. If you have them, keep them to yourself. Monitor your internal dialogue, seek to minimise negativity and seek to integrate a positive purpose into everything you do. Successful patterns are practised daily. The actions that bring about the most value are those that are fully integrated into every moment of life.

      4. Turn on the Music

      ‘ If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music.’ (Albert Einstein) 
Music is provides the space to engage and focus your creative energy. Select what suites your mood.

      5. Get Feedback from the Flow.

      When you are completely focused on your project, you will receive feedback in the form of positive energy. This is a great experience where time ceases to exist and you are alive only in the moment - creating. Get things flowing and find your zone.

      Have a GREAT day!

      ‘Mr. Moon will be shining bright, so the best day ever will last all night.’ (Spongebob Squarepants)

        Top 5 Creative Tips for the Artist Musician

        by Saul Edmonds

        Top 5 Creative Tips for the Artist Musician

        >> The ROUNDHOUSE WAY - The Way of DO

        1. Make heaps of stuff. We apply the same creative process to music as to visuals.
        2. (It is the ‘Do’ - mantra.) If you need to produce 12 songs for your next album - produce 24 and refine. Work quickly at this stage though : this is the free n easy ‘draft’ stage.
        3. Stay focussed. Mind like water.
        4. Accidents are your best friend. So many vital discoveries in science have been the result of chance. Deliberately build error into your process. Invest thought and systems into your creative strategies. Process above results. Forget our cultural notions of survival of the fittest (where only the best survive). Sometimes the best solutions are the least suspected. We are the scientists of sound.
        5. Cut n paste. After your draft stage : step back. Take the best bit from one and put with another. Experiment. Explore. Above all - don’t be precious. Serve the art and not the artist.
        6. Don’t be critical / judgmental. This is best expressed in the Edward de Bono ‘Six Hats’ method. Leave your ‘judgmental hat’ at the door. Do first. Access later. Critique constructively. Begin again.

        Music is good. Art is fun. This is your life (so best enjoy it).

        3 Science Discoveries - that were chanced!

        • Plastic
        • In 1907 shellac was used as insulation in electronics. In 1907, home chemist Leo Hendrik Baekeland experimented to produce a shellac alternative. Shellac was made from beetles and used as an expensive insulation in electronics. Baekeland’s experiments yielded a moldable material that could take high temperatures without distorting - thus was plastic born.
        • Coke
        • In 1886, pharmacist John Pemberton attempted to make a cure for headaches. He mixed together various ingredients. After eight years of being sold in a drug store , coke was marketed in bottles.
        • Penicillin
        • On day in 1928, biologist Alexander Fleming left his research area without cleaning up. Upon his return he saw a strange fungus on some of his cultures. He noted that bacteria did not survive near these cultures. Penicillin became the first antibiotic.
