World's greatest artists depended not upon creative inspiration or motivation but on consistent patterns and routines :
MORE IDEAS FROM The Myth of Creative Inspiration
If you don’t have a schedule forcing you to deliver, then it’s really easy to avoid doing the work at all.
Creative work is like training in a gym. Some days you get your best moments with great ideas and somedays not.
Stay consistent and give yourself space to make a masterpiece and even create junk along the way.
The schedule is the system that makes your goals a reality . If you don’t set a schedule for yourself, then your only option is to rely on motivation.
It is essentially to avoid saying this to ourselves :
Don't wait for motivation or creative inspiration to strike you, schedule it to form a habit.
The work of top creatives follows a consistent pattern and routine:
Every choice has a price, but when we are motivated, it is easier to bear the inconvenience of action than the pain of remaining the same.
In other words, at some point, it becomes more painful to not do the work than to actually do it.
How do some of the most prolific artists in the world motivate themselves? They don't merely set SCHEDULE, they build RITUALS.
It’s a simple act, but doing it the same way each morning habitualizes it and makes it repeatable . It reduces the chance of skipping it or do it differently.
