Oh, my. Even before I start this post, I am getting distracted. Youtube.. I blame youtube.
Actually, I really like youtube. It just doesn't help when I am getting caught up on my subscription box I also want to get some blog posts ready... or finish some paintings.
Anyway, a day in the life of an Artist; Distractions! I'll start this series out by how I try to get through distractions day to day.
Normally on a regular week day, I usually want to paint or knit or some kind of creative work. When I get home from work I usually don't want to do much at first. I know; got to get over that but I am finding that there is not enough hours in a day to get things done.
Or maybe there are just too many DISTRACTIONS.
I try to stay organized. I have a calendar in my phone where I put everything that I need to do in there. The thing is I don't factor in youtube or facebook. How to overcome these distractions? I'm still trying to work that out.
After work I usually just want to relax a bit and by the time I am ready to get to work (my 'unpaid job' i call it), I only have a couple of hours left before the time I should get to bed. So, I set aside Saturday primarily for artwork and blog related ideas. Doing this has helped but I am working on the whole distraction thing during the week. This doesn't mean I don't work on things when I am home during the week. I definitely try my best to work on as much as I can.
This is what I do to try and over come distractions. What are somethings you do?
Leave that in a comment or tweet me on twitter @cindydesigns.
