Bead, I have to bead. I have deadlines. I can go to the gym later.
Look at that beautiful sky....
Maybe I will be more creative if I go for a bike ride. Maybe I will feel better. Maybe I'll go to the gym that doesn't take as long.
So, being a conscientious person, I go for a bike ride. Life is short, the sun is shining, my friend is texting me to ride. Does a mini addiction to bike riding mix with a business in the beading world?
How do you juggle your other hobbies, sports, family and still remain creative and productive?
I have found the best way for me is to actually schedule beading, designing, kit making, etc. time and put it on my calendar. Then I have to actually look at my calendar....Let's see how this plays out. Monday, I needed to do my "real" job, which I actually did after my ride, but the time I scheduled for beading...well, that didn't happen.
Have I taught you anything about mixing pleasure with work? YES, sometimes the best laid plans just don't work...for that moment. It has been a beautiful week here in Bend, Oregon and I cannot bear to miss it. Actually putting creative time on my calendar does work, and I will get everything done. Life is short and time with friends and being outside will never be a mistake. Have a great day and get outside! The creativity will wait for you.
