Like many creative ADD types my brain is like a Ferrari.
Which is great when someone with a sound mind is driving but other times it’s like an licensed teen boy is behind the wheel. Other times, no one at all!
When I need to get something done, I end up…
Checking emails obsessively.
Going on YouTube for one thing and being on there an hour later.
“Researching” on Google for WAY longer than I need to be.
If I’m not careful procrastination rears it’s ugly head like a Kaiju from the Pacific Rim movies! I don’t want to draw or type anything. My energy level drops to the floor so now I need coffee or an energy drink.
Return a phone call? Nope. I’m too busy because I have so much to do!!!
But just one more TikTok video before I go…
I may be a little ‘extra’ but this can happen to anyone. Recently I’ve been able to calm my mind and cease doing this nonsense by asking myself one question.
How may I serve?
Instead of thinking about MY schedule and what I FEEL LIKE doing today. I look at my client’s request and I think, how may I serve you?
My energy totally changes. My imagination activates and I visualize the first best right action to take on a project. I even did this last week when I drew at a live event.
Low energy, gone.
Tiktok, well… Gone too.
Everything shifted when I used all my energy and intention to focus on the needs of my client.
