DO IT NOW

DO IT NOW

My story is simple, my mnmonic device is a song I've been in love with for years-
when I need it, it picks me up from the ground and reminds me of all the important things in life.

It not only makes me physically dance,  it makes my soul sing and it holds personal meaning for so may experiences in my life.  It reminds me of where I come from, where I'm going, what not to forget and what not to do.
The song is titled: DO IT NOW,  it's by Danny Tenaglia, a well-known NY based DJ.  Not only does the title have meaning for me as my mnemonic device- the lyrics of this song are amazing, they move me in the right direction- ALWAYS.

You can listen to it here if you would like- the intro is way long, so if you want to hear the lyrics go in about 3:55 mins:
Now for the explanation:

D - DO IT NOW- What am i waiting for? Sometimes I need a kick in the ass- these 3 words do it for me.

O - OWN UP TO YOUR OWN SHIT- Everyone makes mistakes, own up to your own and be forgiving for others who do.

I - I BELIEVE- Have faith that it will all work out- stay positive and believe not only in yourself but others,  but by no means does this relate to the next letter (T)

T - TRUST IS EARNED- I know you, I like you, it doesn't mean I trust you, that comes with time and a lot of respect, which is also earned.

N - NEVER LOOK BACK- Keep your eye on the prize, look to the future and the only time to look back is to learn from it- progress is key in every aspect of my life.

O - OPEN YOUR MIND - That's a simple one:  be open to everything- don't DO everything and anything, but be open to it- you never know what door is going to open up and surprise you.

W - WHAT YOU GIVE IS WHAT YOU GET- It's all energy, if your are positive, you will get positive- if you work hard, it will pay off.

A little background on me:

I am an art director for Big Box apparel company- I love what I do.   I apply these commandments to my every day life, my job and to my dream of having my own business one day. 

I'm new to skillshare and this being my first experience,  I can tell you I will be back for more- I enjoyed the lesson & the project which made me think.   I came away with great advice and one more saying that will inspire me from here on in:

THERE ARE NO STRAIGHT LINES IN NATURE- Marc Ecko

Thank you for listening & making me sit back and think about what makes me tick.
