Living Room: Double Time

Tonight I spent 2 hours painting which is a great achievement as it has been a while since I could manage that much time in one day.

One of my biggest goals is to reach 10,000 hours in artwork accumulated daily. I keep track of my daily progress on this goal and after the last look I have 7,000 hours left to go. So in 5 years I have done about 3,000 hours. That is an average of 1.64 hours a day. Now if I continue this pace and work on average 1.64 hours a day then it will take me close to 12 years to reach my goal. I really wanted to reach my goal by the time I turned 50 in 7.5 years, but in order to achieve that I will have to increase my daily art to 2.5 hours every single day, yikes.

It may not seem like much but when you have a job and everything else going on in life, carving out 2.5 hours for art a day sounds really hard. Not to mention the motivation that goes along with this. Maybe if I didn’t have a job and I supported my self through art this this time would be much easier I think.

Anyway, regardless of the daunting road I’ve set myself upon, I’m happy that today I was able to do 2 hours of artwork. It’s all about small steps and working my way up to greatness. If I can improve just 1% every day then I’m doing awesome!

  1. You have intense commitment. You stay very busy, and I wish I could help you out more. I do like that we got the rower. Rowing and other exercise can be done before you work and before you do art, which may help you stay focused for longer periods of time.
    My evenings are freeing up, too, which should allow us more time in the afternoon to workout together, without stressing for time.
    I think part of the challenge is to plan accordingly, and stick to the plan as much as possible. We should plan our weeks out, which would help both of us understand our goals, and we can help each other stay accountable. Bright lines.
