I have a foot in the world of people who go to work for someone else everyday. Most of us do it because it is a means to an end. The lucky ones do it because they love what they do. I also have a foot in the art jewelry world. The world where I would like to spend all of my time. If I could only have both feet in the art jewelry world where I go to work everyday, for myself, to make my art then I would be one of the lucky ones. But...for a number of reasons I continue to keep my feet in both worlds.
So I went to work today...the start of a full week...the first full week in a while. It actually felt good. At work I am quick, efficient, productive. It felt good. I only seem to have those traits when I am in the my work world. When I am in the art jewelry world I feel unfocused. There are sooo many things I want to try, make, study, read. I seem to move from one thing to the next not making much of a dent in anything. I guess this is part of my challenge to un-clutter things in my life this year. To prioritize what I want to do and try to focus on a few items.
How do others do it?? How do you do it?? Do you have any tricks or tips for how you keep your focus, maintain your energy, squeeze a few more hours out of an already jam-packed day???
Leave a suggestion by midnight EST Friday 1/9/09 and be in a drawing to win a sweet little pair of bronze earrings pictured below. I'll post all the suggesions on Saturday.
