Choosing the right magician

Rather than applauding only the famous magicians, isn’t it enough that the individual is sufficiently talented to perform magic tricks in front of a crowd? He may not be as renowned as some of the other big names in the field but the fact that he is capable of bringing all his tricks to successful completion is enough of an indication that he is indeed a good magician.

While experience is a measure when choosing a magician to perform at your wedding ceremony, it is fundamental to validate the identification and social worthiness of the magician. Assessment of the magician’s portfolio is very important as it will aid in decision making and your selection process. From the portfolio, you can be guaranteed that entertainment at your wedding ceremony will be a blast of awesomeness.

Nevertheless, the experience is a standard that you cannot overlook. It is advisable to look for magicians with numerous years of experience especially in the area of wedding entertainment because they know the nitty-gritty of entertaining guest in a wedding ceremony setting and have gained reputable recommendations from past clients.

Here are some tips to help you with your search for a magician online.

1. Check his experience

You don’t want to be deceived by people who fake their identity and claim being a professional magician online. Be careful and ensure that the entertainer is really experienced and has been in the magician profession full time. Experience really counts and should be the first criterion.

2. Be sure the magician performs at weddings

Make sure that the magician is highly experienced when it comes to entertaining during wedding ceremonies and has lots of tricks to thrill your guest throughout the ceremony.

3. Ask for references

If the magician is really good as he claims to be, references from past works will also help you verify his claims. Asking for references from clients who has patronized their services is very important.

4. Assess the tricks to be performed by the magician

Take the time you can to assess what kind of tricks the magician has in his list of performance for your wedding, to prevent being disappointed and to evaluate if it is commendable to be performed at your wedding.

5. Analyze performance costume

The manner in which the magician dresses is worthy of scrutiny because you don’t want your entertainer looking untidy. You should request pictures of the magicians past performances to assess his costume.

6. Inquire for pictures/videos of recent performance

Demand up to date pictures/videos of performances done by the magician. This will help you to decide and review how professionally the magician can really handle your wedding event; especially when it comes to the tricks to be played to wow your guest.

7. Providing equipment

Sometimes, you may need to provide the sound system for the event. Ensure that all that the magician needs for his performance is provided, though some magicians tend to bring all the equipments themselves. Just make sure you cooperate with the magician in terms of planning for the event.

8. Discuss age limits

Not all magicians’ tricks are suitable for kids. Some of them perform exclusively for adults, while some perform for all age brackets. Make sure to inform the magician to perform fewer tricks which are not suitable for kids but to render general entertaining services.

 Conclusion

Choosing the right magician to deliver quality wedding entertainment services lies in your ability to ask the right questions such as; how experienced is the magician as related to wedding ceremonies? What is the magician’s area of specialization? Does the magician have a good reputation; request pictures/videos of past most recent performances and if they can be identified by individuals. Once all these questions are answered, you are definitely on the right track to choosing the right magician to grace your wedding ceremony.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
