My daily moment

Singapore, 30th September 2013

Probably lucky I am back in Singapore as the hangover from the lost grand final is surely tough back in Perth and Fremantle. They fought valiantly but in the end just came up (15 points) short. The good news is that there is always next year which they can now attack with an unforgettable experience as motivation! You win some, you lose some, it’s all part of the game, the main challenge for everyone in every contest situation is to pick yourself up after a loss, learn from your defeat and motivate yourself to become even better than before. This is in fact not only true for a loss or defeat; it is also applicable after a win as you can never rest on your laurels. Improvement is a constant factor we should be striving at, whether a professional sportsman or a professional lighting designer.

My daily blog has provided me with a daily moment to reflect and look back, see what went wrong, see what went well, learn from any mistakes, learn from others, appreciate achievements from yourself and others and see how that could help improve my own expertise and the services that we provide as professionals in the business. Even after more than 30 years in the business I still learn every day and I am glad I do. Learning is not a sin when you are considered an experienced and seasoned professional, it is an acquired skill! I think it shows the strength of a person when they can learn and bounce back from adversity or simply have the ability to absorb what’s going on, analyse and dissect the good and the bad and take from it what is meaningful for their own progress.

Light Watch 4-166: Here are some unrelated images where light interacts with materials, shapes and forms. They mean different things to different people. People learn and see different things when they look at it…What you pick up from it is depending on what you want to see (and learn!)  🙂
