Finding Time for The Work
January 21, 2021
I’m writing this post at 9:15am, just before I start my workday helping clients with their marketing, and you could say that this post is more of a form of therapy for me than it is for you, but the point I’m trying to make is that you shouldn’t be afraid to not only embrace your creative projects, but prioritize them.
I’ve read advice that suggests you should spend the entire morning working on your creative projects. The problem I’ve found with that is it makes it very hard to be proactive with clients.
If I’m not able to deliver on my promises to other people, then I can’t earn money to support my music projects. I would rather spend a bit of time on the creative work in the morning to set the tone or add a bit of flavour, and then come back to them at the end of the afternoon, and revisit them again after dinner.
Just the act of checking in on your work in the morning, and maybe writing a short post like this is probably the best way to balance the two types of work.
