OK, I admit it ... I am a project junkie and yes, a bit of a procrastinator too. In direct conflict to that, I do like things organized. I guess that is my yin and yang.
Let me introduce you to my alter egos:
Project Junkie: There is such a thrill in starting a new project, the high of the idea, the tactile quality of the materials and the vision of the finished success. However, 1+2 does not always = 3. The vision sometimes fails to materialize into the snapshot I had in my head and now the interest wanes.
Procrastinator: I know there is another approach to the roadblock that I hit in the PROJECT, but I have to move it to the round-to-it-later file, cause I have a new idea. This is akin to the dog (Dave) in the Pixar movie "UP", where he introduces himself as a highly developed and intelligent talking dog, but in the middle of his speech is distracted by a ... squirrel! ... then goes back to begin his speech once again. I have those moments.
Sometimes, I am just helplessly tied to the railroad track and the train is bearing down ... Aah! But there is a super hero to save the day.
Enter (stage left) ... ORGANIZATION: When everything around me seems to have crumbled into a confusing mess, I get out the broom and dust pan and put things back in order. This clears my head, renews my enthusiasm and sometimes provides the solution to finish one of my PROJECTS.
When all else fails, box it up and give it to a non-profit art charity and take the tax write-off! Now on to the next great idea!
Creativity has been my life and I would like to share some of my thoughts, learning and fun facts with you.
