How to break free from this cycle of un-productivity?
- First show up. Go to the place where you do your art. Walking into your studio or even just up to the table where your brushes, paints, and artistic equipment lives will help to inspire you to start.
- Carve out time. Let your art be your job. Go to it religiously. Set the time. Label an hour or two of your day for art and make it a priority. If you go over that time, great!
- Alert the masses. Let the people in your life know that this time is scheduled for building your art career. Explain how important it is to you and ask for their cooperation in giving you this time to work uninterrupted.
Go forth and create beauty in the world.
