Whew, managed to make one on the first target date (1/25)! I have enormously underestimated how much time this would take haha. Instead of spending a few hours (2-3) I spent probably twice as much or more (6-ish). Since the content was dense, it took me about 20 minutes to consolidate, a few hours to make a rough draft, and another few hours to do the final draft.
"What are one's needs as a person?" was one of the videos that permanently changed my everyday behavior for the better. So I thought I'd feature this one as a token of thanks :)
Well, I did it! I started this project in December 2019 and I didn't expect to finish it until February but I managed to finish before the start date of my next project :)
I decided to draw all 34 themes from CliftonStrengths because I only really knew what my top 5 were at the time, and I wanted to learn more about all of them. I wanted to use the 34 themes as a tool that helps me think more positively about not only myself but also about other people. One thing I learned from this exercise: "weaknesses" can be re-framed as strengths in the wrong context.
Now that I have a better idea of what the 34 themes are individually, I am considering creating diagrams that show how I see the different strengths interacting with each other.
I'm debuting as a DayKnight and I'm PROUD of it!
What is a DayKnight? Individuals who are part of the Day community are called DayKnights.
Who is Day? I can pull up a quick blurb from Wikipedia: "["Day" or Sean Plott] is an American esports commentator, player, event host, and game designer. Plott is best known for his contributions in the professional StarCraft scene, where he regularly appeared first as a player and later as a commentator and host at various tournaments for the game for many years." ...but for me, nothing can explain who Day is better than himself. Several years ago a good friend of mine showed me this video of Day sharing his experiences growing up with StarCraft and to me this captures his identity. Also I will mention that the video is 2 hours long but it was one of the best 2 hours I've spent in my life. This man is a master of storytelling so you get to live his life vicariously - it's incredible how much I laughed, teared up, and learned how to be a better person in ONLY 2 hours.
I'm Candice and I doodle with the intensity of the doomguy.
