|Work in Progress - Every Day Beauties|
Do you feel like you have to check email every time you sit down in front of the computer? Maybe it's more like "I'll just check email and Facebook then ease into it." Not so much a "I have to check", more of just an unwise habit? I confess that I am very guilty of that. Sometimes it's "oh, I have a minute, I'll just check." The problem is that I just stole that minute from my brain. And, on occasion, I get sucked into something and the cost is much more than a minute!
This week I've tried to stop that habit. If I decided to do a couple of hours of artwork after lunch, I tried to not start the time with checking email, FB, etc. I have not been entirely successful in resisting the urge - I'm very ashamed to admit that, it was surprisingly hard to resist. But, when I did, I got much more done than I thought I was going to - and I had more productive thoughts running through my head. When I shut myself off from the constant drip of the internet, I find my own fountain!
Now that I've said it here, I hope to do even better next week. Will you come back and ask me how much I resisted the drip? You'd be doing me a big favor. :D
