Somehow, you need to find the time to scratch your own itch. Even if it’s only for 30 minutes a day. If you have something that you really want to do, you need to find the time to do it.
The less time that you have, the longer it will take to learn something. But at least, you are making the effort to grow and develop yourself on a daily basis.
You could wake up earlier, or you could spend a few minutes in the evening. There is no excuse, for not taking the time, to do what you really want to do. We all have things that we have to do in the day to pay the rent, but you also need to take the time to follow your dreams.
You could start with rescheduling your day, to free up 30 minutes a day, to just relax, and organize your thoughts.
I find that the best way to organize my thoughts is to write them down. When you go over and over your thoughts, you will begin to reorganize them and be able to approach them again the next day, with an open mind.
If you are working every day, and night, without a break, you will eventually burn out. It’s no use living your life, wishing that you had done something. You need to climb in and start doing it.
How much time do you waste, watching TV, or playing games? What if you spent this time, working on learning a new skill? What have you wished that you could do? Could it be writing, photography, painting or learning to play the guitar?
You would need to decide where your time is best spent. What do you enjoy the most, and what gives you the best return on investment. The best investment that you could make, is in yourself.
As an artist, you will use whatever you can find, to create something new. It’s about exploring the unknown and trying something different. Don’t be afraid of being judged. You will be judged, and there will be people that will like what you do, and there will be people that hate what you do. It’s only natural, that you won’t be able to please everyone.
Be persistent, and find the time to be creative.
