We all know the saying, “You have as many hours in the day as Beyoncé does.” It’s a little annoying, isn’t it? Our day seems to fly by in a vortex of emails, laundry and errands. All of a sudden it’s 9pm and we’re too exhausted even think about doing anything creative. From seeing the sleep habits of the rich and famous to seeing how much time Picasso spent working, sometimes all we need is a little proof that it’s possible. Brika put together this infographic on 33 habits that will help you start a project, make the time to finish it and discover what works for you.
Just Start: How is this so simple but so hard at the same time? The scariest thing is to accept that it might not be perfect right away, but you just have to start getting your ideas out there. You can edit later. Just start now.
Make the Time: Should vs. must — they are sometimes hard to tell apart, and because of that, perhaps the hardest thing is to make time for is doing things we love doing and must do, and that’s just wrong. Put creative projects on your to do list and treat them just like the other tasks you make time for.
Take a Break: If you’ve been staring at a project for too long, maybe it’s time to refresh your brain. Go outside, take a drive, get out of the house. Or try something completely new like baking or turn on some music and take a dance break.
Change Your Environment: Move your desk around so you have a different view. Reorganize your craft supplies or maybe DIY a visual mood board.
Follow Your Own Path: In today’s online culture, where blogs look like professional magazines and Instagram is one stunning photo after another, it can be extremely intimidating to put your art out there. But you’ve got to do your own thing. Make the things you love, and people who love the same things will find you.
