Deadline

I like a deadline. I am so much more motivated when there’s an endgame…an art show, an order to fill, an appointment to get to. These are my most productive times.

Otherwise I tend walk in circles overwhelmed by the choices I have and then the day is gone and all that got done was walking in circles.

Here is how I have learned to deal with these days:

  1. I pick one of the many things in my head and tell myself to do that one thing for one hour. At the end of the hour I decide if I will keep going or start another 1 hour task.
  2. When I can’t pick that one thing for one hour, I have a baby food jar filled with slips of the ideas in my head and I pick one and just do it.
