Trying to balance these three essentials can cause consternation for the creative.
We want to be present for people, but not to the point where we don’t have time for our projects.
Projects are important—from home improvements to artistic endeavors.
Yet, life can’t just be all about projects at the expense of people.
And then there’s the practical:
- Houses need cleaning.
- Groceries need buying.
- Food needs cooking.
- Bills need paying.
- Gardens need weeding.
Often the practical keeps us away from our artistic projects.
So, what’s the solution?
The perfect combination that makes life worth living and creativity worth pursuing.
I don’t know. What I do know is over booking my schedule muddies all three.
I need open spaces in my life…time to reflect on what I should do and what I want to do.
Realistic timelines for goals, rest and refresh, time with family and friends as well as with other creatives.
Home improvement projects spread out.
The next painting started next week.
The practical tasks scattered throughout the month.
I rarely get it right, but I sure feel it when one of the three is out of balance.
