Unplanned Perfection

Giorgio Dimichina

As an artist, there have been many times I have taken the time to researched and plan out a painting with a specific goal in mind. Visualizing exactly what the end goal is going to be when creating a painting is important, but being able to retain flexibility throughout the process is not only essential, but vital in assuring a positive outcome.

Being too focused on a set path or goal without allowing ourselves the opportunity to pursue a new direction when needed, may cause us to miss out on new discoveries and a better end result. Many unplanned positive surprises have occurred when I allowed myself some flexibility. Being adaptable to change and being able to set a new course is not only important in the art field, but also in our everyday life.

Life’s circumstances are continually changing. Whether in business, finances or relationships, change is something we can all count on. The ability to maneuver through the never-ending changes of life is what will make the difference between realizing new discoveries or experiencing steadfast disappointments.

I have found that most of the time, it is the unplanned things in life that have the potential to deliver the most joy and interesting results. When we allow ourselves the flexibility to go with the flow without rigidity, it has the potential to not only expand our horizons, but also bring new and exciting opportunities into our life.

When we allow ourselves to believe that our experiences and the abilities we may have acquired throughout our life are more than enough to enable us to maneuver through any unplanned circumstances that may arise, We empower ourselves to meet any challenge with less stress.

And as we all know; less stress is always a good thing.

Arrivederci

  • Interesting perspective from Giorgio. I agree that the ability to be flexible brings unexpected results and experiences, and can change one’s life journey, slightly or significantly. I read a book once on flexibility and survival (I wish I could remember the title) and it described that those who are not rigid in their execution of a plan have a much greater chance of survival when conditions or circumstances change. Those who stick to their plan come hell or high water will suffer much more even if they are very experienced in what they are doing. I like the thought that flexibility in painting can create some wonderful outcomes that weren’t planned…in other words, happy accidents!

      Dearest Francesca. Thank you so much for your writing IK and posting your
      thoughts. It is interesting how letting go and not having control can
      be so challenging to do but can result in amazing surprising results.
      That is also really interesting about the book you mentioned. (If the title ever comes to mind,
      loved to know)

      I will definitely pass to Georgio. For more on Giorgio, be sure to catch him here
