What is the hardest part of a big project: getting the energy to begin, finding the time to work on it, or feeling down that it’s over?
One of the BIGGEST issues I have in starting anything is figuring out how I’m going to start it. If i’m not inspired, I won’t even touch it, whether it’s an essay for class or a blank canvas waiting for me to paint on. In my opinion, creativity cannot be forced, so why try? All that will come out is something I won’t be happy with.
Once I’ve finally started though, I am a force that cannot be stopped. I can just keep going and going, like the energizer bunny. I’m one of those people that hates taking breaks once i’m involved in something because once I stop and get out of “the zone”, I’ll have difficulty getting back into it again. This applies to me when I’m reading a book too. No bathroom breaks, no food, just turning the page to get to the next chapter.
What are some challenges you face when you have a project? Is it the same as me? Different? Let me know! Thanks for reading!
