WOAH!

Wo-ah-Wo-ha!

So I started this webpage while I was in the US, with the help and collaboration of my dear friend Mr. Rat, now am doing it on my own, and of course am finding some troubles. But what would be of it all without the troubles. It started as a professional webpage to offer alternative indie tours in the city of Berlin. Finally to admit that I am not willing to have my second job also being tour guiding. Also this blog existed for the mere fact that I love to write.  I try in English, even though if I am not so dexterous in a language that is not my own, and am humbled but my own ignorance and lack of skill. But I always think on how Samuel Beckett turned to French as his language of preference for his writingsafter the war, not that am saying that am the second epitome of  modernist literature, a genius, or even Irish. The closest to being Beckettian is me being named Lucia.  Still on try-out condition.

So the webpage has a more feminist spirit, and it´s aimed to women in their thirties whose life is not a postcard.

Enjoy LUCHATOURS!

Accordingly to Huffington Post our New Year´s resolutions will fail due to the lack of energy, and this is common sense. It is all about discipline and consistency in the long run. And I am lacking both, but amazingly enough after two months travelling the US, and embracing Nature like a wild child, I do have massive storage of energy. Maybe the wise thing to do will be making DISCIPLINE and CONSISTENCY achieving, your main 2012 goals. But they are nonsense, unless there is a powerful reason behind them. But if we visualize it…we will actually get to the subconscious real goal…what a nice way to trick yourself.

i.e

I will have the discipline to go to the gym—-You go to the gym, and you get proper fit.

Cross out every day you beat procrastination on the calendar, for the sake of discipline. Day by day, instead visualizing your fab self on a bikini in Southern India. Easy.

I will have the consistency to go to German classes—-You learn German, and you make your life easier in Berlin.

Good ideas to find out how to achieve all these things…still, it´s all common sense in the end, but never the less we all need to be reminded. However I really enjoy reading Celes. She´s a star.

Also on these first weeks of flying back home to Berlin, hip Neukolln moving, and getting rid of jet lag thanks to Melatonin (kids don´t do sleeping pills they are bad, drugs, DRUGS) I have been thinking about personal financial planning and the things I will do this year. Also biz planning for my third enterprise so far, after a mild successful fashion label in the late 90s at the age of 18(where were all of you, fashion bloggers? where were you Tavi, probs not born ouch :-/ age again) and a graphic design studio. And I discovered the wonder and phenomenon that is Danielle la Porte (is there something in the BC air that breeds really special people…what is it with you?) please read all she has to say about money and biz and actually…read all of it.

I have also been thinking about the type of biz. I truly would like to embrace. I mean don´t get me wrong, I love being a tour guide is a lot of fun, and specially if I can make ludotours,meaning playful tours. But still is not my final call, it´s just a mean for the time being, that makes me really happy and allows me a lot of space to grow in many fields. Aside from the fact that am a nerd and love History, and German History, and pimping the nazis, has to give you loads of good karma. Right?

This is how my year is starting…very full throttle. I would like to work more, write more and read more. And why not, start  a different blog, my misspelled woah! is a treasure box, but it´s too static and random.

Loads of love and inspiration.

Ahhh it´s always so easy on paper.

While I gather information on how to cut your own hair (layered), am giving myself homework, unpaid, by reading Luke Sullivan´s latest post. Because this is the kind of post, you would like to read to start out the week with a bit of hope.

Loads of love and immersion, and practice and almost perfection

Being trapped at Amazon HQ lobby without a book to read.

Loads of books, kindles or kind books.

And this is what I missed today in Seattle, because I missed the bus. I miss the bus, and I miss Berlin. Time for missing. Bollocks.

Reinterpreting Oasis tune. I am so loving last Sally’s post. I wouldn’t say Passion is an imperative, I would say is the only way!.

Here, check out Sally Hogshead.

I feel really strongly about this. Let me rant for a moment.

There’s an insidious myth about work. It goes like this:

“A meaningful career is a luxury. Loving your job is nice in theory, sure, but unattainable for most of us. Passion is only the frosting on top.”

First of all, that’s a total crock. And second, it’s just plain sad.

Meaning is an imperative.
Joy is an imperative.
Being fascinated with work is an imperative.

Passion is not a luxury. It is an imperative.

Loving your career is a non-negotiable necessity for becoming your most fascinating. And for breaking through client and consumer skepticism. And for reaching your own greatest potential. And for making any kind of difference in this world.

A career worth loving is not an indulgence, a privilege, or a fluke. It’s a choice.

And while you’re not automatically entitled to a seat atop the professional food chain, you do have an inviolable right to pursue a career on your own terms. No one can take that away from you, unless you give it away.

To settle for anything less, to live an un-fascinating life, and then wake up one day to look back upon a lifetime of meaningless effort… ohh. Tragic.

A career isn’t to be tolerated. It’s meant to be savored, devoured, marrow sucked and fingers smacked.

Passion isn’t the frosting on top of your career. It’s the whole damn cupcake.

P.S. And of course.

Thanks to the metalhead and curious mind that is Rafa Gil, and his Twitter…I bumped into this man and his speech at TED. Just one month after I met the beautiful soul that is Maria, a physicist and she is ALREADY a PhD, so Doctor Maria is doing a postdoc in neuroscience, and just related to what this man is actually doing. Brain and creativity.  When she told me that part of the scholarship budget went to buy a piano and formerly place it in the middle of the lab…I knew I was facing something big.

Loads of love and one brain.
