About meMy PASSION and PERSONAL MISSION is engraved in my name - Lina LINKeviciute.
Every day I LINK people, organisations, companies, countries, and seemingly unrelated dots.
All these connections naturally result in WOW moments.
The more WOW moments I generate for others, the more people feel inspired and full of new:
Having a multidisciplinary career
I have developed a unique quality, capacity and a skill – INTERDISCIPLINARY.
In other words, I am a multipotentialite, a polymath or a Renaissance Lady.
I have already experienced, learned, and navigated between all these different fields:
Cosmetic Surgery Business
B2C and B2B
Healthy life style
Languages (Lithuanian, Russian, English, French, Spanish, Chinese)
and never stopping Learning
Of course, I have one know-how which I am following for the longest time throughout my life.
It is the “Art of Selling” or “Bringing value”
I inspire others
How to do it in a playful way, through storytelling, mind mapping, acting, fine arts, visualization and so much more…
Every Single Day
We all have something to sell: a product, a service, a project, an idea, an opinion or our very own personality.
The Story about The Old and Creative Man
A few days passed and the young man approached the old man again.
- Can I ask you another question ? How can I improve my thinking?
The old man smiled:
- Here is something very basic my son. We don’t think in words and phrases. We think only in pictures and images.
Words are the raw materials of thought. When spoken or read, that amazing instrument, the mind, automatically converts words and phrases into mind pictures.
If someone tells you “Jonas bought a new telephone” you see one picture. But if you are told, “Jonas bought a new house with a swimming pool” you see another picture.
So if you want to improve your thinking my boy, you should create positive, forward – looking, optimistic pictures in your own mind.
- Do you mean to imagine things?
- Exactly! Imagination – it’s the
beautiful ability that we humans have. It’s even more important than knowledge.
- Why do you say that?
- Because knowledge is limited, while imagination circles the world without end!
I'll give you an example. Let’s imagine a bird. And now imagine a bird wearing a dress. Do you see it?
- Yes I see it, but it is weird.
- No matter, the important thing is that you see it. You have probably never seen a bird wear a dress before in real life, so there is no neuronal ensemble for that in your brain, but yet you will be able to imagine it – this is a very unique and complex human trait. When we imagine two of these familiar objects together, we can come up with something we have never ever seen before.
- I still don’t understand. Why is it useful to see a bird with a dress ?
- Oh my young boy! You are asking me about how to improve thinking and I am answering you that you should look at things not AS THEY ARE, but AS THEY CAN BE.
A big thinker always visualizes what can be done in the future.
He isn’t stuck with the present. By using IMAGINATION he adds VALUE to everything.
It's like a great producer who hears a simple melody of piano and can imagine and hearing the whole orchestra playing together.
- And If I tell you that I don’t have this capacity to imagine?
- So my Boy you go and train yourself !!!
You do 100 hundred Mind Maps and I swear you will become a master of imagination!
How did decorative handwriting rewrite Steve Jobs' Life?
The biggest paradox is that the genius of technology who created a super aesthetic electronic devices mastered calligraphy himself and used it during his whole life.
Steve Jobs was studying in Reed College offered the best calligraphy instruction in the country at the time. He learned about serif and sans serif typefaces and about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle. Calligraphy gave Jobs an aesthetic sense which he later successfully explored in other fields.
Steve Jobs understood, that by keeping our hands moving:
· It encourages our brain to think at a higher level
· It’s meditative and relaxing
· It develops fine motor skills and memory retention
· It promotes creativity and critical thinking
· It facilitates connections with other people
· It increases aesthetic sense
Every single poster, every single note was beautifully calligraphed by his own hands.
As Jobs told Stanford's graduates, "When we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, it's likely that no personal computer would have them."
And the iPad with a pencil where do you think is coming from?
It’s hard to imagine how Mac could have looked today if Steve Jobs was mastering drawing as well as handwriting!!!
The incredible thing is that it is possible to develop handwriting and drawing at any point in our lives!!!
The most easy method to develop these skills by doing Mind Mapping where you can start practice these skills at your own level and for your own reasons !!!
I always end up most of conversations discussing about ideas. If you need any idea or you lack creativity- my head is full of them. From extravagant to casual.

Making your first movie
Do not spend too much time waiting to start. It will always seem that you can be better prepared or find more funding. In the beginning your vision is the strongest - just go with it and work every difficulty along the way. Trust me, it will be harder to finish than to start.
