Change and Play = Productivity is unfortunately hard to achieve as we are bombarded 24/7 in our real world with trying to share our part of the load.
All artists strive for a good balance between their artist’s time and personal lives. Vacations and time away from the easel are essential to good health and career.
Here are 3 suggestions to help you to remember that Change and Play = Productivity
1. Sit and do nothing…
Yes, that’s what I said, because answers come more easily if you let your problems rest for awhile. Daydream, it’s been said that children that are encouraged to daydream have a higher IQ. Why can you not do this for yourself? I know we have all the responsibility of keeping our families, art business, etc going but, it’s so important to take care of yourself.
2. Play makes you joyful…
You play, forget about that painting that just won’t tell you how it wants to be painted and when you get back to it, your head is clear. Your easel time will be more productive and the problems that had no solution are easily solved.
3. Ask questions…
If you are the type artist that feels your questions are not important or you’re afraid of feeling that you’re asking a dumb question, then change that. Ask questions then be willing to follow up to see for yourself if the answers are what you need.
Change brings opportunity and so does play! You can go with the flow and embrace these two essential elements or become a victim and accomplish far less than you are capable of.
