Have you 5000 hours your passion

I always thought that I lived a simple life. Now understand that nothing is simple. Just another illusion of my own self.

It was easy to get to the Para-Olympics. It was easy to be born with a cerebral palsy (CP). It was easy to move to Thailand.

Simply is not simple. X number of hours of training in life. Hours of training my muscles to near maximum physical collapse. Endure any ill-treating people of ignorance CP injury I do not think that I have. In Thailand, I am ignorant because I’m a Westerner in the first place. Secondly, cerebral palsy, for which they do not know what CP is saying that Parkinson instead …

People who know me say I’m weird. Because I am an artist and artists are often strange…. (In Swedish, this sounds very funny English, not as much fun, but a little).

I have turned off all those hours of withstanding ease training. 1000 hours of training, ordinary people do not have the capacity to implement. Hours of painting, hours listening to people, hours to train my body physically.

Hours to develop my talent for something I have a passion for. Hour after hour. Making this blog takes me 4-5 hours per week. I write slowly. But I want to leave an impression and makes the blog because I think it’s fun.

Counting example:
Tell me I had 1000 people in coaching. If I had them one hour, it is 1,000 hours. On average, I have a client at least 5 hours and usually much more. It gets 5000 hours which is equivalent to about 208 days. If you can work 24 hours per day, which is not possible.

So if we expect more 20 hours a week, 960 hours per year that you can work without a vacation. 5000 hours divided by 960 hours per year is 5.2 years. I stick their necks out and say that I can coaching.

With the above extent, a is not hours of reading books, education and consult with others as a mentor. I have certainly spent more than 10,000 hours of coaching under my coaching career, which begin about 30 years ago.

Seven years it will take to be approximately a sprinter. Since it takes about two years to reach the world’s elite. You spend an average of 20 hours a week. So nine years times 960 hours per year is 8640 hours to become an accomplished sprinter.

This implicates not you reach an Olympic final in the 100 meters, which I did. Into account is not the years I train just for fun before I focus on athletics. Seven years it takes from you bet on a branch.

My art career is just starting. Say that I painted about 200 paintings (certainly more maybe 300) and each painting takes on average 3 hours effective time (that means I removed the coffee breaks, clean the brushes, ponder motive and more).

This will be only 600 hours. Tell me I’m to have put in hours of training, ship paintings to exhibitions, practicing different techniques and more for about 300 hours. There will be about 900 hours. So I have about 4000 hours left before I’m good.

Whatever you want to become good at it takes about 5000 hours. So that’s what I mean when I say that ordinary people do not carry out 5,000 hours to reach his passion in life.

You do not even need to be good only passion. When 5,000 hours passed, it is good, I promise …

It’s easy to coach people with more than 10,000 hours of training behind you. It is easy to reach the Olympic / Para Olympics with 8640 hours of training behind you.

It is not easy to be an artist with just 900 hours behind you …

The latest music video. I have just started my musical film performance. Maybe, just have put in 200 hours or less. So it will probably be good if I’m working on, about 4800 hours. Feel good, see you next weekend …


Quiet Flows the River

This week will be a cryptic lyrics and two cryptic poems. It is not meant to understand. The idea is to take in and let everything be. The poems are written in the late 90s … the text is written now 21 October 2016. Happy reading …

Quiet Flows the River

Quiet flows the river down to the infinite. Which direction should I take? It is said that only dead fish float with the river. It means I have to swim up the river if I should live. Up to the source of my life. For the origin of everything, I stand for in my life. When there are a current and rapids, is almost impossible to crack.

Then I jump like salmon, the salmon stairs, so I will not go down by the river.
Jump I often enough to take me on in the stream of life …

The seagulls are always on the lookout for prey like me. Screaming his croaking roar and looks for to extinguish hunger in the calm water current.

Night and day I swim up against something I do not know. Moon warms me, not. But only creates mystery, with the shimmer of water. The sun gives me hope and warmth that time does not stand still.

I rest in a hole of sadness. Dark, black as night, but printed cuddly like a chrysalis of a butterfly undeveloped.

Beautiful, you are, only you have time to rest and break out of your cocoon.

Fly freely, without fighting, into the life sprinkling stream. Wings should I get, and then you should see all the beauty of life that can be….

Poem nr 1

The lady rocks forward,
on trembling stick

Cats smarts of mice’s allure

Runny stearic, talking about
combustible’s existence

Waiting pigeons brooding among the dust-filled
nostrils in future ESTATE


Poem nr 2

The parable of spruce tree and tulip

a spruce tree lawn green, but not wilted, as a tulip

tulips sprout onion underground, as the bear asleep in hibernation

In the spring, the bear hibernation leaves, in hunger on the way to another wilderness.

The wind howls, on the plain, while the wolf howling in the darkness of night

In obscurity, a scarecrow standing and swaying after crows

A man takes a crow from the road to death

Without reservation coffin, flowers, go to ground

I just walk on, home to an unknown country



Essence of life .. core

The essence of life, the core. What is it?

What it means is what everything is spinning around in your life. The essence of what your life is all about.

Many chasing unfortunately only money. Money has no value in itself, but what you do with the money that creates your platform in life.

It is said that the cash flow (number of money coming in), you create the platform you can reach up with the cash flow (can not be the name of the Nobel laureate, who stand on this).

So, you want a different platform, you must change the cash flow. If we use the car brands as examples.

To have / own a Ferrari needed a wise cash flow. But it also affects lifestyle. It is rare for ordinary wage earners go around in a Ferrari. But there are examples of this.

A three-child family would probably not prioritize a Ferrari. I believe it is impractical with prams. But would choose a more practical car for children family.

So car manufacturers build different types of cars for cash flow needs. This means that a Ferrari owners pay maybe only 1% of its cash flow on a car. While a family with children pays 10% of the cash flow.

A Ferrari owners will also not use the car as much as a family with children … Both have certainly normally a second car and the value of another car differs certainly also because of the various cash flows …

What I want to get at, is that the lifestyle you have is based on your cash flow.

But. It has nothing to do with, your quality of life. There is no equal sign between cash flow and quality of life.

You have zero money and high quality of life, or vice versa billion in cash and zero quality of life.

There are studies that the more years at university. The more money you earn and the less number of sick days have you. This is still nothing to do with the quality of life … for there are studies that show that people who have received a fatal diagnosis have a higher quality of life Lately in life …

So what is the moral of all this? Or what am I to say: Seize the time here on earth and build a good core (core) around your quality of life you think is best for you …
