Know Thyself

Do you pause and reflect? Go go go, make make make, sell sell sell, buy buy buy is how our modern life goes these days. It is so easy to be constantly distracted and always focused on the next thing. But that pace is unsustainable and unhealthy.

Taking time to pause and reflect on you and your efforts is an important part of the creative process. What worked? What didn’t? What did you enjoy the most? The least? If and when you do it again, any changes? Who loved it? Who hated it? Both views are valid and need to be heard.

So this week, take 30 seconds to 20 minutes, sit quietly and contemplate your efforts and energies and goals for the past day/week/month. Be proud of your accomplishments. Be humbled and learn from failures. Be eager to accomplish and fail again. This isn’t easy, but worth it.
