We all have a list of things to do –
On papers, in our heads or in a electronic planner.
The lists of things to do – groceries, house chores (dishes, laundry, vacuum), make plans to meet a friend, more house chores (order more fuel oil, shovel driveway, get firewood), book a flight, and more house chores (fix a leaking tap, finish off kitchen renos, paint bathroom). You get it – we all have a list, and as soon as one item is crossed off – a new item appears; maybe even a few extra items. The list is never ending. A non-stop conveyor belt of things to do –
Every notice that the fun stuff doesn’t make the list. !
The list is always the ‘must dos’ – not the ‘this will make me feel good’ things.
Creative time ?. Put that one the list for giggles – and you know what happens.
The list is non-stop Triage – do the most critical items and work down.
Creative Time – As you can guess. It isn’t a Code Red, Code Blue or mission critical.
Life can go on and one without Creative Time. Millions of people go through life without any Creative Time. They keep them selves busy.
But for some of us – missing Creative Time is Ok for a while. After a while -it starts to nag – As if saying ‘Put me on the List”…..”I am important too”.
It has been nagging me for a while….
Next week – the ‘Solution”…
