A new year ahead

Perth 7th January 2013

First of all let me wish you all a fantastic 2013. I don’t know how the situation is for you out there in the lighting design market but for us the first part of the year will keep us very busy with many new projects on the drawing board and lots of work at hand. Considering the bleak situation in Europe and the USA I guess we are in a good position, but I am mindful that things can turn around quickly, so let’s enjoy things when we can!

I am starting the New Year re-energised with heaps of things to look out for, business wise as well as privately. My break in Australia was very relaxing, as I was able to leave most of the office worries behind. As I write my first entry of the year I have just returned from the beach for my last dip in the ocean before I hop in the plane back to Singapore this evening with a hectic schedule of country visits and meetings starting tomorrow! But I feel healthy and in good shape so all ready to get back into it. Please share some of your “me-time” with our blog readers. I am always interested to learn from others how they balance private and work life. Have you made resolutions and plans for the New Year? Let me know!

Personally I don’t really need the New Year to make resolutions and make decisions but it is a good time to look back, reflect and re-adjust your life/work direction if you find that it needs some adjustment. We are always in the work mode, that keeps going on and sometimes just stepping out of it allows you to have a better view on what’s going on in your life. I have started to work on my second blog compilation so later this year I hope to present Light Talk, Book 2. This will be a compilation of 2011 and 2012. I will keep you posted on this.

Otherwise please send in your comments, experiences and anything else you feel worth sharing this year. I hope my blog can grow further in sharing and promoting our profession of lighting design.


Light Watch 4-1: Life can be an illusion…I thought of sharing this clever video illusion, just to remind everyone that life is not always the way it looks! J All the best in your endeavours this year
