It’s been a while since I partook in a daily blogging challenge, but as we head into Autumn, full of rainy days where sitting in front of the computer doesn’t feel like you’re wasting time it felt like a good a time as any.
This challenge is not just about getting you writing/blogging regularly though, it’s about working towards and overcoming the challenges to leading the lifestyle you want. So for me, that is working towards making a successful business out of my art and photography.
My 3 challenges I face are all interlinked, basically I worry about not having enough time to do anything (Natalie mentions in her post about that foible), but then waste time by worrying about it. I also am a superb procrastinator and get easily distracted: technically I have around 4 hours every evening to get my stuff done (that’s based on having dinner and being washed up by 6pm, and a conservative bedtime of 10pm) and yet still I have a to do list as long as my arm! I can nip on social media to check something and lose hours following links to articles that really in the grand scheme of things, are not important and don’t help me progress. I could also throw in that I have too many activities/hobbies, but I feel like curbing my creative endeavours to save a few hours a week would actually be detrimental.
The most ridiculous thing is that I know I should prioritise my evenings as well as I do in my day job, but it never quite works out like that… or maybe that’s about to change.
