I’ve been writing about creativity, freelancing, and illustration daily for over four months. Last Wednesday was a jam-packed day, and I only got around to sitting down at the laptop to write around 11:30pm. I was tired and didn’t know what to write about at all.
The motivation was fragile. I almost broke the streak and just went to bed. Then I saw that the laptop battery was showing 7%. I decided not to plug in the charging cable. The time to write something was thus limited, and so now all decisions fell quickly. In the end, there were two sentences beside the headline. But that was perfectly fine, and I got to bed before midnight.
Without the time pressure, I probably would have worked on the post for a long time, or maybe I wouldn’t have written it. Instead of trying to adapt to the situation, we can try to adapt to it every now and then.
