I'm sitting in a coffee shop right now, super focused on my goals. Unfortunately, the how to get to the goal is murky at the moment. My day has been totally thrown off by forgetting my wallet, camera battery dying, and a couple other frustrations.
Today is not the day. I have zero desire to make something happen. My work day blog posts, something I've been working on accidentally 5 days a week, now becomes an expectation of my mornings. I now need to try and write something when I get up, which has been easy, the ideas have been there, floating around.
I have no ideas today, therefore I will make nothing. I'll wait until I figure out what to make.
jk oh wait I'm a certified procrastination master. If I were to say I was going to make a weekly video, I'd end up cramming it into Friday and doing it all in a day anyway. I would just cause myself to suffer despite having a wealth of time. I work better under pressure.
You know how you make better stuff? You suffer through that "I don't know what to make right now" and make it anyway. You can't limit making things to when you feel good, because that will only become rarer and rarer. (Trust me, a couple years ago I unintentionally took a year off of photography just from not making something every day)
This blog post is an example of this method. I'm writing about when you don't know what to write about. It might be totally derivative, but yet I'm forcing my brain to work. (which hopefully fuels the rest of my day)
Excuses are garbage.
