I’ve heard this several times before and I just finished reading an article about it. I’ve had a rough few weeks. Im not going to go into detail here, but these various incidences have been quite distracting. There has been a lot going on in my personal as well as in my professional life, leaving me little energy and time to spend on my entreprenueral effort. Some call it my hobby, or time to myself. Call it what you will, but it’s important to me.
This, again, touches on the subject of Carving Out Time. However, a lot of what keeps me from being productive is pure mental and physical exhaustion. I just don’t have the energy left. My brain is fried by the end of the day and there’s not enough power to produce something creative. I do what I can and put out what I can. I don’t create as much quality work as I’d like. I just have to believe that, at some point, I will have more time. Until then, I’ll have to be satisfied doing what I can. That’s why this is a thirty year journey and not a two year journey.
I will have say, that last weekend, I was actually able to put one of my designs on a t-shirt on my newly set up Artist Shop through Threadless. It’s a start. I plan on making shirts and prints, of my entire Monster Sketch series. While I haven’t sold any shirts yet, I did buy one for my son and myself. Not only is it free advertising, but I’m putting money back into the business. As another old saying goes, “It takes money to make money.”
