i think in order for me to make any progress on something, i need to have it up in front of me at all times. when i lived in the loft, i was most productive because unfinished paintings were always up, surrounding me. every time i left the place, i thought of something new i wanted to add to the painting. sometimes i could spend just a few minutes on it before leaving or doing something else. also having a studio space set up with mics and everything ready to record. so there was never a barrier between me and getting an idea out. i potentially have that here. i have a separate space for art-making and an office like space out here, that i can use for music making.
maybe i should clear my desk space here a little better, and set up my Maschine to always be accessible. that might make me work more on beats. or at least bringing my iphone and ipad beats into logic to clean up and flesh out.
in general i want to stop focussing on blocks and negative things related to productivity. instead of being angry at how many projects i start and don’t finish, i want to celebrate the fact that i am really good at starting projects. i am really good at coming up with ideas for something. i want to focus on my strengths, and parley them into achievements and accomplishments. i can help to do this by changing my language. re-inforcing my strengths and building new ones by stating “i love to complete projects.” “i love taking my old ideas and making them better.”
