How often do you do something creative? Sometimes I go weeks without playing guitar, writing a song, or recording music. Sometimes it’s months. Where does all the time go? Let’s figure it out!
Why does it feel like we don’t have time for creative work? “Things” often seem to “get in the way”. The idea that I don’t have time to be creative causes anxiety, and makes me even less likely to create something. It’s interesting that we say to ‘spend’ time, like it’s money. It’s actually far more valuable than money.
We all have the same 24 hours per day that everyone else has.
We all have the same 168 hours per week that everyone else has.
We all have the same 10,080 minutes per week that everyone else has.
To say I don’t have time for something is really just saying that it’s not a priority. Even if it’s something I want to do—I’m simply prioritizing other things over it.
I put together a short video about a method that I used to help me figure out where all my time was going. The process includes creating a “time log”—writing down your activities as they happen, for one full week. The results were eye-opening for me. Check out the video below and find out where all your time might be going. Let me know if you create your own time log—would love to hear your results. 🙂
