Somedays, creating comes easy. Something inside will have me tuned in, turned on, and ready to make it all happen.
Other days, I’ll have lost the spark and the project I started or the deadline I need to meet will seem daunting and un-doable.
Mornings where I’d just as soon stay at home to pad around the house in a stained t-shirt eating tortilla chips for breakfast are sad situations that are best left mitigated.
Thus, In order to not become a lackadaisical loaf-about when I’m just not feelin it , here is a list of what I do every morning to stay on the course of creating.
1. Get up.
2. Put on Merle Haggard.
3. Get presentable.
4. Get started.
The best solution is the counter-intuitive one. When the work feels hard — do more, without complaint. When I’m really uninspired is when it’ s best for me to immerse myself in the work of another — preferably someone of esteem and character.Subconsciously I’ll ask myself how they reached such an impressive apex of accomplishment, and subconsciously, I’ll answer — through their own hard work.
