5 Time management tricks Penelope Trunk learnt from years of hating Tim Ferriss

The “4 Hour Work Week” was a good read but the value definitely doesn’t feel right expecting reward without paying the effort. Isn’t the fun part of doing anything is when you are actually doing it with all your heart?

On top of career, goals and dreams, it is important to choose the right people carrying same value to go on the journey together.

The 5 tricks by Penelope Trunk

1.Don’t hang out with people who don’t respect your time

2.Cut to the chase: Tell people who are full of sh*t that they’re full of sh*t

3.Self-centered people are more likely to waste your time

4.Productivity is about meeting your goals, not getting out of doing work

5.Time management is about making time to connect with people

Pay it forward

“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.” Albert Einstein

Is there any other way to live a life?

The important part is a creative endeavor begins with an act of concentrated seeing, focus looking.

Without asking the most fundamental questions of existence, one will not be able to create – and this is true in all fields.

One settles on questions that are personally meaningful, and then answer them. There are pleasures to be found in life, work, and all processes. The joy is in those moments when the group meshes perfectly, it is in the way we offer each other encouragement, in the fact that we cause each other pain, in our struggle to find a way through.

The classics stand the test of time.

The tailored collar was a most elegant means of creating an opening for the head. The Tailoring Collar, e.g. Lapel and the Nape, is indeed a perfected monument in the history of fashion. For a natural relationship between the body and the fabric.

Everything starts from embracing life itself. Is there any other way to live a life?

Techniques comes later. Everything begins with an appreciation of shape and volumes. One must be struck by the beauty of something, and only then may one ponder how to arrange the fabric, whether to use darts or hems.

True avant-garde sensibility is one that acknowledges reality while simultaneously providing a glimpse of the solutions and surprises that tomorrow will surely bring.

Museums are even worse. No designer really wants his clothes displayed in one. They are where fashion goes to die. It is the same with retrospectives – I will have no part of them, either.

It is meaningless to construct something and place it as an ornament. Things must be alive, they must be vibrant and in motion.

The structural traditional structural beauty is just a symbolic projection of a self-centered ego of men.

The fact of the matter is that making clothes requires one to continually express oneself aggressively, and if that means that disappointing sides of the self are sometimes revealed in the process, so be it.

It is always best to add something playful to any polished coordinated look in man’s clothing. Attractive, classy, and chic alone result in something dull.

Rules are made to be broken, they were made to be ignored. In contrast, the tenets and discipline one sets for oneself are to be defended with one’s very life.

Especially always in the journey in different cities, bumping into some old friends or just a casual message means a lot to me! Thanks for your love my dear friends!

Hello~ Crazy Kitty

Recently did a project with Sanrio,

doing art direction for the annual Hello Kitty Summer Event.

It was a challenging task for my first time doing such a big scale set design.

There will be a pop-up Hello Kitty theme park in Hong Kong in August,

and will tour around to other countries, including Japan and Singapore.

 

I wasn’t a big fan of Hello Kitty but there is some magic in it,

that what this Kitty could do is out of imagination!

This Kitty Palm Tree welcomes you at the reception of the HK Sanrio office,

and the “Mountain of Kitty & Friends”  is the signature of their meeting room!

Do expect more from the Summer Event. Looking forward to August time!

that are tight enough

to show I’m a woman
