Living the Life of an Artist
Sometimes I get so stuck on things that I can’t seem to get out of my own way. On my mind and a top priority is to get a decent system set up for my “business.” Yes, I still struggle with saying that I am running a business. Or is it that I have a business? This was my major resolution for 2011 and here it is coming up to the end of the year and I’m still dithering. Every time I think I have a plan, I can’t seem to put it in place before another idea comes along or I get distracted.
On a positive note, I am further ahead than the beginning of the year. I am going to be so much better. I do have plans in my head. One thing I have realized about myself is that I am very good at coming up with ideas. I am not good at implementing them. How can I change that?
Of course I can say that I can stop thinking that I am unable to implement the ideas, but I just recently realized that aspect of self. In realizing and understanding it, I can change it.
Some of this is holding me back. Okay, maybe it is me holding me back. I struggle with allowing myself to do new work if the old is all disorganized. When I try to re-organize and arrange, my mind gets bogged down and I give up.
These past days find me making another attempt. A new price list has been drawn up. I am making folders for 2012 to better organize the business. Sometimes I wonder if I am making it more complicated than it needs to be. I am plowing ahead. It will happen.
