Now, I'm usually not a procrastinator. I love my work and I love to organize; those two things fit together very nicely, thank you. But faced with a whole day to do whatever kind of work I want? I dither. I resort to list-writing. I snack. That was my day on Monday: a little of this, a little of that, but not a whole lot of anything. So on Tuesday, I set the timer. You've got 2 hours to work on this project. Then 2 hours for this one. A deadline is not a bad thing. (It also helped that I started my day with exercise and companionship.)
This year I'm pondering: What is success? What does it mean to thrive? I've started a journal so I can jot my ideas down as they come to me. I'm also giving some serious thought to working through The Artist's Way. A friend in the Magic Wand Collective leads an Artist's Way workshop, but I may just start in with the morning pages now. Tomorrow!
I'm trying to figure out how I can get more flat-out creative time into every single day. I'm thinking of adding The Brilliant Idea Hour to my daily schedule: an hour set aside each day to work out whatever brilliant idea I can't wait to try. And if I didn't have a brilliant idea that day, I could play. Or watch a video on creative living (like Good Life Project). How do you get creative? What fuels your fire?
