Finding the Joy

I’ve been spending too much of my time thinking about productivity, procrastination, habit-forming, etc.

The effort it takes to focus on the how often distracts from the what.

I’m trying to give myself permission to let things ~be~ sometimes. I don’t have to be working on a play draft while writing in a journal while memorizing monologues… Digging into too many projects takes away the joy of creating for me.

I’m happy to work on something just for the sake of working on it. Even if it leads nowhere (©Adele). And especially, of course, if it brings in good money. But the joy isn’t found in the fussing about how efficiently things are getting done. It’s in the act of creating something from nothing.
