I seem to have been doing a lot of working to deadlines recently and a couple of weeks ago, I had a moment where I realised that all I was doing was just producing, producing, producing. I was feeling up against it and had lost my flow. I took the next day off to do something purely for fun and made a conscious decision to let go of the push to have x number of pieces done by x date. Since that day I have felt so much better and have noticed new energy coming into the work and miraculously I hit my major deadline - in a much easier, happier way. A good lesson for me. I’m now thinking more about what I’d like to work on rather than what I should be working on.
