Challenge yourself. Be curious. Discover. Grow.
So, what's this "Wednesdays Off" thing?
I love my work as a DC-area freelance Art Director. But one of the challenges I'm faced with as a creative running my own business, is that there's a lot more to it than just the creative.
I have reserved Wednesdays to focus on the non-creative aspects that are equally important to doing what I do. Research. Accounting. Billing. Training. Education. Sketching. Networking. Securing new business. Getting inspired. Organization. Still working... but simply not scheduling any calls or meetings.
When our weeks look like this: give, give, give, give, give.
I'd like to propose: give, give, replenish, give, give.
Whatever you do, wherever you are, don't forget to refill the source of your creativity. You need to refill that well in order to continue to pull from it.
I first did this experiment a few years back.
Then tried it again in a few months later.
