The Practicing Mind

So I've been a bit busy these last weeks or months. I haven't updated this blog in a while. But I'm going to perform some new disciplinary measures to get stuff done more often. I put it in my calendar to start updating my blog every week. 

I've got alot of work to do as far as self improvement. For a while now I have fallen victim to procrastination. I watch tutorials, daydream and think about creating work but I always have to force myself to do it. To just do it. If I have an assignment of course I do the work without thinking about it and it comes out great, because there is a deadline. An outside force has an influence on whether or not I finish a task. I have to start to teach myself to get into the habit of always creating artwork to keep getting better and better. I have to focus on the present moment instead of daydreaming how good I can become in the future.

Its something that has been on my mind alot. I worry about who's better than me and what is the standard of perfection that I have to reach. This can be helpful, to know what the standard is, but it can also be a crutch, because I get caught up in watching other people's work and tutorials so much that I don't give myself that time on improving my own body of work.

Anyway, I've got my calendar and Im sticking to it. Enough talk. Time for action.
