Week 14 2014
It's a catch 22.
I have crap loads of work to do, a weeks worth of posts to flesh out, a give away to draw, a newsletter to write, I need to get some painting in, cause my soul is crying out for it + lets decide last minute throw make a video for the launch of Listening to your Squeak.
But it's also my nan's 94th birthday, a birthday we weren't 100% sure she was going to make, and my fabulous cousin + her kids are coming to stay for the weekend + I haven't see her since last year + I am desperate to spend some quality time with her.
A catch 22.
This life is a juggling act at the best of times, but this weekend, I wasn't sure I was going to be able to fit it all in.
I rediscovered something about myself, that since leaving the work force to care for my babies, I had forgotten.
I work best under pressure.
I don't have time to check my emails, or Facebook, or read that book, or play that bloody addictive app on my iPad that has sucked away hours of my life.
Under pressure I sit down, concentrate + smash it.
Instead of the day it can take to write the newsletter, it took me two hours.
Instead of deciding I didn't have enough time in half hour to paint, I splashed some paint on the page + ended up with something I love.
So this weeks friday art is this cute little blue haired girl + her mane of feathers.
And although it too a little more that half hour to do (Mac ended up doing the school run that day so I squeezed in another half hour)
So my question to you is, how much time do you spend procrastinating? Now I think most of the time my procrastination is beneficial, but it certainly doesn't hurt to review how much time you DONT spend on the things that are most important to you. What do you think?
