Why an Agenda?

A need for an Agenda? Why?

In today’s time, Time Management has become a challenge for each and every individual. I remember, when I was in school, I used to manage my time keeping a small pocket notebook with me, where I used to write all the tasks to be done in a day. I still do that and it makes my life so much more simple.

Though modern tools and mediums are much faster in terms of managing a days schedule, I am very sure there are people who loves to note everything down on a piece of paper, still. If anyone asks me, I love to note everything on a sheet and pin it each and every time I note. Some people like to keep a track of everything they do, so they don’t miss out on anything, and hence they write everything. But at the same time, this may become a little chaotic and too much of data, so why not have a planner where you actually write the pointers. A well-tuned weekly/monthly/yearly planner should help you focus on your most important tasks instead of showing all of the content you have been noting.

Here are few reasons which I personally feel and would also like to encourage every individual that why a planner is required and how it can help you get things done and enjoy your activities smoothly:

  • You can keep track of all the responsibilities given
  • You get used to getting focused on the tasks
  • You can share the pointers to your partners or work people directly as you have all the pointers in hand
  • You’ll increase your capacity of working and managing things systematically
  • You’ll learn to manage time, as you have different agendas
  • You’ll learn self discipline
  • You’ll improve your memory
  • You’ll enjoy a feeling of completion at the end of the week Okay, now this is my favourite part and I will tell you why? You have 10 things on your agenda, every time you see, you want to get over them as soon as possible, so what I do is and what makes me happy is ticking them out from my list and how I do it? I take a red bold pen and I just draw a horizontal line over it and the joy of doing that, is simply beautiful (completing a task). 

Whether you have big plans for now or future, it’s important to set goals. I am here not saying a planner will help you achieve this, but having a planner can make your life more organised and productive.

This write up is not only for art lovers, but for many, who loves to have agendas and diaries and notebooks around them. I’m a Graphic Designer and I relate this with myself because am always with my notebook wherever I go. This write up is a kind of hint for the audience out there as what my next blog will be!

Happy Weekend!

 

 

My 5th grade story!

PicsArt_11-05-10.35.55.jpg

I always thought that it’ ll be an easy and quick answer whenever anyone will ask me. But no, it was very difficult for me to answer that Why I Love Calligraphy so much? I had to dig deep and had to think on this.

Ever since I was in school and started writing, everyone told me that my handwriting is exactly like my Father’s. Something which I got from him as a gift (kidding). I then started realizing that I need to start writing in different art styles and I can make my mark on it. My aunt who also was a tutor brought me into notice about one of her ex student who was into creativity and DIY sorts, who also was teaching calligraphy. That time I was in my Fifth grade and din’t even know what calligraphy was. I was very keen to know about calligraphy and one day along with my ma and aunt I visited her, saw her work and I was flattered. That very moment I told myself that this will be one of the thing I would want to never leave at any cost.

For me, calligraphy was not only letters and alphabets and words but something more. My love for calligraphy and and lettering began as a way for me to release my creativity when I was young. I always had deep aesthetics for letters and fonts and also the beautiful words written beautifully.

Above you will see a collage of my calligraphy work as a beginner. Years passed, but the love for calligraphy never faded. I was in my Ninth grade when I actually started conducting workshops for kids who were in forth and fifth grade at that period of time. Slowly and gradually after a year, I was a tutor for more then 35 students. After writing this today and letting beautiful audience know that why I love calligraphy so much I realized one thing that my students have also played an important role. They have inspired me more then anyone could. 

I am professionally now a Graphic Designer and a Tutor too. During my graduation class, when I got to know that Calligraphy is not just a term or an assignment we are going to do but that will be a whole lot of subject to learn, my happiness had no limits. I have had amazing teachers who always guided me with different calligraphy workshops.

Do what you Love!

Ever since my childhood, I have always had my drawing around me where ever I used to go. Never in life, I dreamt of becoming a painter or a graphic designer or an artist inspite of so much dedication towards art. But here I am, a Graphic Designer, an Illustrator and a Typographer.

When I was in second grade, I always used to spend my free time with my colouring books (I still have them :p) Whenever I see them lying in my cupboard, I open these books smelling each of the pages and the fragrance of the colors is still the same, driving me back to my childhood.

I don’t say I don’t like Barbies, I have played with them too, but when I see sets of colors and colouring books around me, I pick them first and not a Barbie :p

I still carry my drawing (mini pad) pad with me everyday to work. This particular quote of Marc Jacobs, I think it reflects me so much and I totally agree with it. I doodle, I illustrate, etc whenever I am on a thinking mode or when I take small breaks from work.

Many say, one should never make a career out of their passion because then your passion is no more a passion. But it is a wrong statement, am still very much passionate about my paintings, my work. Whatever I do, I do it with all my heart. When a particular thing interests you, you give all your time, efforts, thoughts to make it look perfect. I do things with all my love and do a lot of it. One will always be happy if they do it with their love.

Poker face.

Doodle a day!

Hey, doodle talk today?                                                                                                         

What happens when we are stuck with a pen and a note? Yeah, we end up doodling. Printed letters turning our to be faces and hands, underlined words kind of a train, decorative borders appears round the corner. Done with the entire thing, the whole thing turns out to be scribbled over. 

What are Doodles?                                                                                                                         

Doodles may be anything – shapes, patterns, drawings or scribbles; anything we create in our idle time while focus of our attention is elsewhere. It’s super amazing to know how creative we can be without even trying! Doodles seem to take their own shape strangely in the end. 

“We create doodle without thinking, sometimes they can be revealing like our body language that we are not even aware of.”

They may be precise, complex or child-like but in the end they look like works of art.

Why do we doodle?                                                                                                         

Sometimes, we get tense and frustrated and doodling helps relieve boredom and frustration. The urge to doodle gets stronger as stress levels rise. Doodles are like a way of a map that shows how one’s mind works.

“One of the best things about doodling is that no one will tell us what we have to do and how do we have to do. It is totally our imagination and idea which come together as a piece of an art.” 


Everything in a doodle related in someway to the person who as drawn it or visualised it.

Finally…                                                                                                                                               

Doodles are puzzling, full of bizzare images which makes no sense, rather like dreams.
