Tao of the Artiste
It did however bring to mind something that has been quietly bothering me lately - the fact that I have been concentrating more on the personal development side of my 'career' than on art-for-art's-sake. This needs to be addressed because at the end of the day I am an artist who gets into self improvement, not a personal development guy who likes to write and sing on the side. Sometimes I get really bored of philosophy, motivation, goal setting, meditation, Taoism, health and fitness, productivity and all the rest and put the whole thing aside for months - but I never do this with my art.
My two main artistic outlets are writing fiction and writing and singing songs on my guitar. Given this, and given the fact that I am faced with a short weekend of (gasp!) only two days before I have to get back to the office, I have decided to take a weekend off from most all of my 'other projects' and just concentrate on writing fiction and preparing to record a new acoustic CD next weekend.
This means I will NOT be:
- Tweaking my websites
- Promoting my upcoming meditation workshops
- Writing non-fiction articles
- Wasting time reading totally cool productivity sites like this
However, having said that I am about to make another post to this blog because I have something to say, hopefully something that will be of slightly more interest to other people than this navel-gazer of a blog post ;)
Flow Like Water...
