No tiara involved

I recently left Twitter and joined NextVR as the VP of revenue partnerships.
The #WomenOfNextVR welcomed me to their uplift lunch series where Melinda Witmer (guest speaker), Stefanie Yoshimura (software developer at NextVR) and myself shared our stories around the topic:

What is the biggest challenge of your career and how to overcome it

A tiara and cuffs might allow Wonder woman to gracefully extract herself from some tricky situations… as far as I am concerned, I only have a brain, a body and a few connected devices to “do epic shit” day in day out!

So, no tiara involved, here are some resources that I use to do so.

  • Nurture your creativity & confidence in your own time:
    Find and practice what gives you “thinking space”.
    The best ideas often come from unexpected places/ moments. This is because all the work you do throughout your busy work days sometimes needs a spark to ignite the insight that will give you the confidence to move forward with an idea or solve a problem.
    I often find that spark while surfing, that’s when I used to live in Australia, now that I live in NYC, it’s by walking the streets of the city with blasting house music in my headphones, or painting, meditating…
    Whatever it might be for you: cooking, playing with your kids, walking your dog, singing in the shower, doing your hair, dancing, watching cats on the internet, chasing double rainbows…. Make time for it!

 

  • A good read is always a good idea: 
    A trick that helps me read more is to swap social media time for reading time.
    From quotes, to articles, fiction or self development books, here are a few examples I love and find very useful:

 

Oh and one more thing, if ever in doubt about life, listen to the lyrics of this song (it seems crazy, I know. trust me on this one)

React and share your wonder woman/ super man tool kit!
