So, if you are here reading my blog I’m guessing you are a creative dreamer, and you are in the business of making your creative dreams real.
Now, creating isn’t always easy for us arty types, I’ll readily admit…. but there is one thing we dreamers need to make dreams happen, and it’s a thing many creative people resist like fury.
You gotz to PLAN, my little chickadees.
I can feel the collective shudder over the interwebs from here.
I know, dear Creative Being, I know.
There’s just one teensy weensy problem. If you don’t find your own way to plan, the overwhelm beast is going to get you when you’re trying to create those dreams of yours.
Trust me, me and the overwhelm beastie go way back.
To keep the beastie at bay, I’ve learnt that you have to do three things:
1) Break it down. Chop what you have to do into small chunks. I mean waaaaaay small.
Things you can do in 3 – 15 minutes, tops. Break it down, and then break it down some more….
2) Write it down. Get it out of your head and onto paper. That way, you can see if you actually need to do it, whether you have what you need, and if you can de-le-gate that puppy.
3) Check it off. Crossing things off the to do list, it’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on. Seriously. Especially with a nice big Sharpie pen…. aaaah yeah, baby!
I bumped into Raine of LimeTreeFruits via the magic of the internet in my quest for diary pages that didn’t make me sad with their black-and-whiteness.
Raine’s mission is to ‘Creating accessible & functional art’ at her blog, LimeTreeFruits
Her stuff, it really isn’t black and white…. look……. drool with me over the colourful goodness….
