Organizer (3) ー How to organize performance for better impact

English, Español, Français, 日本語

I don’t mean to brag, but it is necessary to show that I have some results behind what I am going to explain (so that you might pay attention).

I won at several international competitions for performance.
To name a few of 1st prize: New York Talent contest (for the final round, I mixed cooking and dancing in an unique way); Halloween contest in performaing arts’ department of American university (injured Samurai/ break dancer with hand-made costume); Asian regional PPT presentation contest (all the slide was my drawing without texts with 5,000 USD award); street dance contests in Mongolia and Japan, etc.

Am I naturally very talented on performance? No.
Am I physically gifted? Not at all (I was a fat boy without physical and discipline).
Have I practiced performance since I was small? No. I started dancing when I was 19.

Then how did I achieve all those?

I learned how to organize performance.

Nowadays we need to present and perform more and more (ideas, project, sales, etc.), which means you need to stand out among other rivals. That is not easy task at all. With that in mind, in this post, I would like to share some tips on performance, mainly through my dancer’s experience.

Organizer (1) ー 5 Conditions to be a Materialist

English, Español, Français, 日本語

I try to be a minimalist being surrounded with few stuff. The benefit is agility: the last time I moved out, it took just half a day.

I try to be a minimalist without carrying much staff when changing a country to live. The benefit is economical and mental friendliness: the number of baggages I brought when  I moved abroad were quite few without extra charge nor container service (1 suite case and 1 backpack from the U.S. to Chile in 2013 and from Chile to Mongolia in 2015 and; 2 suite cases from Mongolia to Mauritania in 2018 mainly for ingredients for African life)

I try to be a minimalist without much stuff on my work desk, namely a computer screen, mouse and a cup of water. The benefit is lack of distraction which enhances focus and productivity.

Have I always been trying to be a minimalist? The short answer is NO. In fact I  was way far from being a minimalist, and what is so called a materialist. Now I believe in  minimalism as it has  some key points for a better life. In order to go into the detail of minimalist, simplicity and productivity in the coming posts, in this entry, I would like to focus more on the materialist side.
