Every day now, I’m working on this exciting new project I’ve developed called “A Day in the Life Photography”. And in the process, I’ve recently been able to objectively observe my approach to taking it on each day. I wake up and have to decide which, of the countless aspects of it, I should take on first. This is one of the biggest challenges of developing a new branch of a business and especially for someone with Serious ADD!
Yikes – I’ve always been organized, but working mostly from my home has proven to be tricky. I’ve realized in the past couple of weeks that I have had to come up with a failproof system to prioritize and keep things moving in a swift, consistent direction. Working on it…!
I’ve also noticed and come to accept that there are just going to be days when I’m inspired beyond belief and you couldn’t pull me away from the specific task at hand if you put a gun to my head…”ok, so hold on for JUST a minute before you pull the trigger so I can just clean up these last few details.” And other days that, yes, I’m working, but maybe I get too excited and anxious(?!) and cannot stay on task to save my life, flipping around from one ‘must do right now’ to the next like a little kid at a playground who goes from swing to slide to sandbox to monkey bars and never really sticks with any, but has a good time nonetheless. Rrrgh.
The latter case are the days that make we wonder why inspiration of this sort comes and goes…..why am I SO inspired and on task some days and like a Mexican jumping bean others? Is it the moon phase?! Is it my ADD meds? Is it just that way with every creative artistic thinker in the work arena?
I don’t know the answer – still pondering that one. l guess I need to stop pondering and go do something else (although, maybe not?! Maybe this is what I should be doing right now ;-/? And considering that the inspirational groove is not in swing today, that “something else” should probably be to work on my failproof system mentioned above – at least until the next thing inexplicably demands my immediate attention!
