I’ve been procrastinating for far too long
Trying to publish my creative art
I made up excuses, I lost interest, I moved on
I was missing the spark to start.
The problem isn’t technology, it is psychology.
We need a countdown, a clear objective, accountability.
So we sign up to creative challenges.
And without noticing, our mind just changes.
We start publishing consistently
We start to draw, think, script, shoot, edit, publish.
And once we publish, we start again, repeatedly.
We put ourselves out there and we feel accomplished.
It is here, right here, in this creative flow,
Where we feel most alive
Colors blur together, sounds fade out, lights glow,
Deep into our work, the world is ours.
But reality knocks back, we miss a deadline.
Our new creation flops, we feel let down
Moments of doubt, we’ve lost our crown
The challenge is hard, we better resign
But others struggle too, we’re not alone.
Pushing forward, we’re back into the zone
We turn to others, we help with feedback
We’re in this together, we just stop the slack.
And day by day we get closer
Til’ the countdown is finally over
We put our ass through the grind
And we look back to what’s behind
It is in the heat of the challenge
Where I make peace with my mind
I might not have published my best work
But I tried to be the best version of myself
One challenge at a time
Create every day.
