I woke up last night at about 1045 to my phone ringing. I’m a super-duper early-bird, so this was almost 3 hours into my sleep. And I keep my phone in Do Not Disturb, so it was someone who knew how to get past my “filter” for emergencies.
Well, the news wasn’t good — I’m officially quarantined for two weeks, which just means I have an opportunity to focus on other projects. ?
That threw off my night, which has thrown off my entire day. Toward the end of the day, after doing damage-control, I finally got around to my drawing.
My warmup felt “messy” — I did it at home instead of the cabin, so the kids were screaming and playing. I felt a bit rushed, even though it took longer than usual to do.
And some 30-second gestures to meet my “floor” for the day. The next two weeks will be filled with art and going back to my educational roots to build websites and start a side business that will hopefully sustain my family during times like these.
What went well?
- Meeting with Chris Beaven and coming up with some really awesome plans to hold me over through the quarantine.
- Not breaking the chain.
What needs work?
- Stress management during high-stress times.
- My energy is all off.
What did I learn?
I need to have a conservative “fallback” for when things like this happen to my primary source of income. I need to focus more on a sustainable “passive” income. Or a low-maintenance side-income.
Back to making progress on my side-projects and putting out feelers for web design projects.
