Right now is one of those points where it has just been nothing but head down, bum up. For those not acquainted with the saying, this means it has been nothing but nose to the grind, slogging it out without much of a chance to come up for a breath of fresh air.
I’m loving it.
I was never really sure of the saying “if you want someone done give it to someone busy” but now I understand. There seems to be something about that momentum of getting things done.
However, being so deep down in everything I’ve taken on I’m becoming worried that I may be missing the bigger picture. So, I’ve started setting aside a bit of nothing time to let the creative part of the brain take over. You know those moments you’re on the toilet and you think “aha! I’ve got the answer!” – by giving myself a bit of nothing time I’m hoping those creative moments happen more often. I usually find they take an angle I hadn’t thought of.
