Using personal productivity to guide your artistic career can be accomplished in 7 easy steps
As you scurry about trying to find the most productive path, take into consideration that there just may be a simple, organized path to reach your destination.
I know that your life is probably like mine, in that I have a family, belong to several organizations, love to garden, and travel as well as paint pictures of places I’ve been. The list goes on and on and makes the use of a personal productivity guide even more important.
For instance, I’m inspired to paint in several different mediums. Each medium needs a different set up. Oils are usually painted while standing at an easel, Watercolors can also be painted while standing but the paper should be lying on a flat surface. Pastels call for a totally different set up as they require a very smooth surface and much prepartion.
To promote your personal productivity, arrange your studio to accomodate each medium you want to be creative in. Always having the right supplies at the right table greatly increases your productivity.
Another helpful way to increase your personal productivity is to have an overflow space. An extra room with shelves that are organized is a great help. This serves you well in that when there is time to be creative, the supplies are ready.
You may have the idea that artists with few personal productivity goals paint pictures as beautiful as the artists that are truly structured and productive. This would be a correct assumption but having these guidelines will benefit you in the following ways…
*No more rushing here and there finding supplies when you only have a short period of time to create.
*Know in advance additional supplies are needed.
*No more missed club meetings because the date was forgotten.
*A neat work space = greater creativity.
Create special personal productivity goals to benefit your artistc career
When traveling about in your car listen to information that motivates and inspires. In the studio listen to music as you create. One suggestion is that you make your own personal productivity MP3 to reinforce goals you’ve set and new ones recently added. There are many free teleseminar sites that record as an MP3. Making your productivity guide easy to listen to wherever you are.
Being organized begins by making a schedule of the artistic items that need to be done and set a deadline for each of these goals. You’ve learned the importance of knowing where your materials are and a good idea of how long it will take to complete this project.
Successful artists have good time management skills to use along with their personal productivity guide. Think of the opposite of using your guide and it will be easy to see that your artistic career seems to stall. Not having a productivity plan may slow you down so much that your goals seem to be just beyond reach.
Taking the time to work through these suggestions, gives the basic principles of your personal productivity guide.
To help you on your artistic journey I’ve recorded a MP3 which can be downloaded from the upper right corner of this post. I invite you to leave your name and email address, download and listen as you learn more about your personal productivity guide.…
