Life has become a routine, your work, your free time, there is no action anymore. Day after day is going down the drain. You see the years go by and you are wondering, is this all there is? And you can not motivate yourself to change your life. The rut has struck.
I am in the website development business, and I am specializing myself as an affiliate marketer. And I must say, it’s going very well. I started this adventure in 2014 from scratch. And this website is all about design and development.
Last week I found Cliplets, a Microsoft App. You can make still pictures with one moving subject. I will add some more cinegraphics here.
Here is my own first try-out with Cliplets and yes, that’s me 🙂 and yes, my webcam sucks, but it’s just for the idea to show you what is possible with Cliplets. Let’s dive now into the motivation stuff 🙂
I “motivated” my earring to move.
