This is part of my work in the Julia Cameron Artist’s Way series. The work this time is from the book the Artist’s Way at Work: Riding the Dragon. The responses are self-examinations and assessments based on work through a daily series of exercises. While I do keep some material offline as it can be very personal and jarring, I often opt to be fairly open about my experiences, both positive and negative.
Reminder to self: you don’t have to do EVERY exercise.
1. Morning pages. I’m still doing them, 3.5 years after doing the original Artist’s Way.
2. Time-outs: these are getting increasingly difficult to take right now. I have holiday stuff scheduled out my ears this week, and some of next week. I also have so much work I want to get done today, but I know I desperately need a time-out. I think I may “shortcut” it and take a walk through the Walker Arboretum. My biggest problem is the “I don’t have time,” and the “It should all be done NOW,” mentality. Going back to breaking down projects into tiny chunks.
3. Yes, I know, fun.
