Managing Distractions

A shorter art day today because I had problems managing distractions.

Peter Drucker, as the “Father of Modern Management” said. “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”

This described me well today during and before my art time. I was really good at getting things done that didn’t need to be done. But I was able to get some drawing in on Pocahontas and pick up that micro win. Woot!

The Natural Way to Draw

I didn’t get to any exercises from the The Natural Way to Draw book because I did poorly in managing my distractions. I’ll get back to it tomorrow.

What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

I’m still having a very productive day. I’m playing poorly well!

What needs work? What did you learn?

Manage my distractions around art time.

How am I going to Optimize moving forward?

When it is art time everything else goes away, deep focus time!
