do you believe that inspiration is a fickle being that strikes a lucky few and teases the remainder of the artistic community? if you’ve been waiting around for this magical creature to visit you, it may be time to alter your approach…
this week, adventureclubinteractive challenges you to to take control of your artistic situation and manage your creative output by sticking to a specific schedule and making a personal commitment to yourself to do your “work” each and every day this week.
what is your work? you tell us! take this opportunity to brush dust off your canvas and find a clean slate. gather the materials that your work demands. clean paint brushes, untangle yo-yos, unroll yoga mats, suspend slack lines, fire up pottery wheels, hydrate clay, shuffle cards, charge batteries, tune instruments… feel free to write, photograph, dance, video or compose. and if you are already an accomplished writer, photographer, dancer, videographer or composer- perhaps you find the adventure in the work instead– working at something new and different. perhaps you trade composition for prose, kickboxing for kiteboarding, photography for cooking, designing video games for planting garden flowers…
choose your own work. and work everyday.
the keys to this assignment are consistency and progress. as you’ve most certainly heard before, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” we recommend picking a specific time every day to do your work. keeping a regular schedule will make it easier to stay on track and stay committed working everyday. maybe you set a timer: 20min-60min. maybe you designate a room with a door to close.
eliminate all distractions. focus on your work.
document your progress. take a daily photo of your work and record your feelings and experiences in a journal entry / blog post. we will all be proud of ourselves when this week is over and hopefully these habits will continue on after the assignment expires!
