1. Description

When you are distressed by an external thing, it’s not the thing itself that troubles you, but only your judgement of it. And you can wipe this out at a moment’s notice.²

2. Imagination

3. Meditation

4. Motivation

5. Precision

6. Reinvention

Embellecía los hechos, porque era consciente de que la vida es como uno la cuenta, así que para qué iba a anotar lo trivial.⁸

BONUS

7. Reframing

When I look at a portrait, I like to play a game where I try to listen to the subject’s internal language. In this portrait, I can hear Van Gogh saying to himself, “I think I forgot my wallet.”⁹
