I am a fan of making to-do lists each day. Sometimes I put so much on the list that I get overwhelmed and psych myself out to the point where it’s a struggle to get anything done.
One thing I have learned is that there is a certain amount of momentum needed to get creative work done. It can be a matter of a few minutes of sitting down without any distractions and starting a task in order to feel properly motivated. From this point, the task picks up momentum and is one step closer to completion.
