Did you meet your creative goals this week?
How have you done this week? Have you managed to create everything you wanted, or set out, to do?
If you haven’t, and I’m talking to myself here, what are you (am I) going to do about it?
- beat yourself up
- admit that you are a failure
- look at where you went wrong
- draw a line under this week and try to do better next week
There may be plenty of emotions: anger, remorse, self-loathing. Just thinking about the time I may have let slip by brings me down. But that’s the little point I want to make.
We should think about what we have and haven’t achieved. We should review our time. We need to note where and when and why we have been successful or not. Then, either try to repeat next week or change the things that made us go awry.
Take a moment each week, doesn’t have to be a Friday but the end of the week works for me and review your creative adventure. Keep positive habits, commit to change bad ones and realise your creative potential. Learn from both what you have done… and what you haven’t.
A week where you haven’t been creative can still be a learning and therefore positive experience.
