The Marking of a New Chapter

It’s been a year of many contrasting tales; quite easily both the best and worst year of my life combined into one. But what I can take from this remarkable 365-day-experience is knowledge – how to deal with things better (good and bad), the importance of listening, turning the ideology of desire into a tangible force (thank you Alya), and possibly the most crucial – realising the necessity of instinct.

We all have those moments when we are presented with a decision that could go either one way or another – be it with your education, your family, your partner or your career. Well, I’ve learned the best option, 100% of the time, is to go with your gut feeling. Sometimes it is too easy to over-think a situation, and then in turn undertake the completely wrong plan of action. Your gut is never wrong. Before language, thought processes and opportunity became so expansive, our furthest ancestors, primitive beings, had nothing but their instinct and basic knowledge to go with when for example hunting. Do not forget, we are merely more advanced versions of the same species, we all have this supernatural power within us. The key is to use it.

And so on that note, enjoy your last day of 2011 – and I hope you and I both make 2012 a year where our decisions enable us to fulfil our goals.

Happy New Year.



Reading on engineering

I’m just reading books and books right now. I think the power of knowledge is underestimated and overlooked, but those who understand it will no doubt prosper. At the moment my focus is on read about engineering, but once I’ve finished these Uni assignments I will expand my repertoire and keep up to date with what’s happening in the UK market, US market and Global market, commercially and technically!

Here’s my current reading list:

– Mixing Audio by Roey Izhaki
– Modern Recording Techniques by Huber & Runstein
– Thank You and You’re Welcome by Kanye West
– Sound on Sound mag
– RWD mag

I also bought this book for my dad called NLP (Neuro Linguistics Programming). It teaches you how to get what you want via speech and body language. I think it’s ESSENTIAL if you want to be successful. Check that out too!
