Exposure Magazine/Senior Editor
I admit, I struggled with certain aspects of procrastination. Far from lazy, but I had to learn to streamline and go after things in order of importance.As a creative professional and artist (film/screenwriting/novels) my mind tends to drift, and if you are creatively wired hopefully you can relate. Artists can see a rock and can write a total epic story on the tales of daring and courageous exploits of that rock. Our minds thrive on being creatively stimulated so mundane tasks tend to drag on at times because we feel so limited. We can be writing , painting, filming, editing for hours and it can feel so blissful.Yet that creative side of our brains have to shut down the millions of possibilities to the one that only matters…The accurate and timely one. I had to learn accurate is not enough, timely is just as important. The past few years have been far more productive and led to other opportunities.
This video made me laugh at myself. I laughed so hard at what Tim said in the video at the 8:39 mark because that is so me… I have to be creatively stimulated and I would have said something like that. Over time I learned to shift gears and pace myself on the mundane things and shut down the creative abstract side of my mind. I fight it to this day, and found that I am not lazy as an artist, but have to not let that side of me slow me down. If you are an artist, there is hope because we are just wired differently that’s all. Hope you enjoy. By the way, I get things done, you just get a glimpse of what I overcome to do so. (;
