Like most everyone, these days, I find there is much to do and not enough hours in the day. My ‘todo’ list is endless and growing. It’s overwhelming and sometimes I feel like I’m drowning. Even though my work is creative and inspiring, there are still deadlines
This is not a productive creative space to be in.
So when I read about PROJECTLIFE365 I decided to join.
PROJECTLIFE365 gives me a creative outlet that I committed to for 365 days. I’m committing 10 minutes of everyday to being creative, it makes me stop and think about a daily inspiration, based on the guideline posted on PROJECTLIFE365. This forces me to be creative and clears my thoughts so I can finish the ‘real’ work at hand.
There are no rules to the project but I put some guidelines for myself.
- It must be a iphone photo
I didn’t want to take out my camera and download and edit which would demand to much of my time, besides, I’m using those tools for my everyday work, I wanted a different tool to explore with and to make it simple and doable.
- Use a photos taken that day.
I wanted to avoid going into my archives, that can be a time drainer and it misses the point of this exercise. I wanted to be sure I would take the daily inspiration and see how it applies to the day. For Shabbos or Yom Tov I would use a photo taken the day before or after.
- Not to be over critical
I didn’t want to add pressure to my life, I am looking for something fun. So if it’s a little blurry, it’s ok.
- If I miss a day, it’s ok, but just make it up as soon as I can
