Usually every new year I try to take on some kind of creative project with regular due dates. I started off really ambitious with daily creative goals. As time went by I noticed that once I missed one day, it was usually enough to lose motivation for the rest of the year. To fix this, I started giving myself more flexible due dates, like read one book a month, draw something a week.
This was the project I undertook last year, which was to take random videos throughout the month and make a compilation. When I couldn’t work the code into my wordpress theme for January’s video, I gave up the idea. (go figure) Lo and behold over a year later I figure out what the problem is and am ready to take the project on again. What is life.
