OYOS: Talent, Execution, Elite Mentality and Performance – all parts of the equation

We go again

Live update. I’m doing stuff that I have never done and it’s stressing me out.

I think this is the real testament to my elite personality/mentality comes in play, I won’t lie I’ve relied most my life on pure talent and excellence of understand my craft.

This, what I have been doing for years does not work here. I have to push, I have to press towards, I have to craft new ways and study things I’ve never studied before to overcome these hurdles.

When they said talent wasn’t everything they were actually right, I had no clue. I’ve never needed more than talent to create quality work or come up with quality ideas.

You see execution is a skill, people will tell you it’s hard work I don’t see hard work as much of a function. There are people with elite mentalities that start out purely with execution and then get the great ideas, I’m obviously on the other end of the spectrum but I’m coming u on a force I have never faced before. The need to execute beyond my station the need to execute and create quality work.

I know it sounds daft but I have only needed one or the other. But both? You’re telling me I have to execute and make it a high level? Okay now we’re stepping on uncharted territory.

See some people will think I’m mad for thinking this but I’m making this post just for those that know what I’m talking about and to myself for remembering the emotions in the moment for future purposes and to channel that & to release it so I can just get on with what I need to get on with Cos I sure am going to do it it’s just now I’ve caught on. If it helped you reading, great. We’re on this journey together.

I document all the information I've gathered in my working and real life using reason and the written word to share with everyone how I ask an artist see the world. I research Plastics and Concrete and I'm educated in tech, design and art history. While having active practitioner experience in Advertising. I use that myriad of technical skills and display how they apply in the world and products we use starting with fashion.
