Hey spent all of the last few months teaching myself "discipline". I began reading a few time management posts on Zenhabits.com and I realized that I did have time to get to a lot of things. It also made me realize a big weakness about myself. I like to take on to much at times.
After reading a a few other articles, I decided to reevaluate how I do everything. I found out that I was spending too much time watching online media (Korean and latin dramas man). Had to stop that. (I did a lot of lurking on DA too).
The rest was just figuring out what time I had left and where I would most like to spend them.
Honestly I knew all of this but it just felt so hard at first. No motivation. I then got a reminder that motivation isn't what's needed. Its disipline to do what needs to be done when you don't feel like doing it. That's how one avoids procrastination. I just had to stay focused and stick to it.
Anyways I'm still at my job. I'm not hired by the company directly so I don't know what will happen. At first I was very worried and that worry laced itself into other parts of my life. I don’t feel that way anymore. I just decided to do my best. If it doesn't work out in the long run then oh well. I have my health. Hopefully.
I forgot to mention that I damaged my wrist at work while typing too much. I'm better now. Not being able to draw in the month of August was very depressing.
Moving forward I got a 19 inch Yiynova. I'm going to try and do more digital work in the next coming months. I love traditional but it seems like a good idea to get used to painting on the computer. Maybe I'll develop a watercolor /digital hybrid like I see some of the marker artist use for their work.
That's it so far.
