I’m not sure what happened today. I feel like I did a lot of running, but not much got done. I started my morning with some writing to my subscribers, then tackled some sketching, as usual:

But I don’t feel like I found “flow” during this sketch session.

Then I had to cut my AM work block short to go to the studio for our weekly meeting, which got moved to Friday mornings. Due to cancelations this week, I didn’t have a tattoo to work on, so we just did critiques and placed a supply order, then I had to run errands.

Once I finally made it back to the cabin — I realized I’d forgotten my drawing monitor’s cable at the tattoo studio! So I worked in Photoshop to get a client design ready for tomorrow. And didn’t save it to the cloud, so I can’t share the progress on that.

At the end of the day, I worked a bit on a worksheet for CreateQuest, then headed home to cook dinner for my family.

I had planned to get more drawing and writing done today, but alas…I failed. I scraped by with my “minimum.”

What was awesome?

Getting some drawing time in, but not as much as I would like.

Getting my prep work for a client done.

What needs work?

I forgot things today. And overscheduled myself.

“Flow” was elusive this morning, but I showed up and did the work.

What did I learn?

Not every day can be a hyper-productive one. When it’s time to shut down, it’s time to shut down.

And don’t forget to check out CreateQuest – a project that I’m working on with Chris Beaven. It’s our mission to bring creatives together in an empowering community with a focus on improving the world, not just changing it.
