As a follow up to my post last night, I’ve kind of let me thoughts run wild today and want to organize. How do I physically complete all of the tasks and endeavors that I want to accomplish? I think first of all, a to list… (private:) And then thinking about shows I would like to do… (still private:) So after getting these specifics out of my head I look at recources as to how to accomplish them, This article was awesome..
http://www.creativitypost.com/create/work_smarter_not_harder_21_time_management_tips_to_hack_productivity The highlight I took was from the conclusion… “Enjoyment should always be the goal. Work can be play. We get so caught up in busyness that we forget to enjoy what we’re doing. Even when we focus on working smarter, we’re still often too focused on getting things done.
This should never be the point. Always ask yourself: What can I do to spend more time enjoying what I’m doing?
The goal should be to arrange your commitments in a way that you’re happy living out the details of your daily life, even while you’re working.
This may sound like a pipe dream, but it’s more possible than ever in today’s world. Be curious. Be open to opportunity. Know yourself. Embrace your passions.”
While recording my thoughts and looking at resources are both great ideas, it comes down to actually implementing these tasks. I tend to be one of those people, like i said that fantasizes about things being done and have difficulty accomplishing what I sent out to do.
This is especially true if I may not be looking forward to a certain task and when I have to think about the rest of life! I tend to abandon life for my art, and then vice versa. Is it too rigid or too planned to right out the hours of my day Or mabye have “X” amount of hours for creativity, rest, chores etc. That may be a good solution.
All I know is i will figure it out. I will find my voice, the shows I do successful at and the things I really love to make. In the meantime I’m going to try it all:)
Multiple pens and multiple notebooks make for multiple lists!
