This Week's Effort: "Barn" Painting
If too much times passes, I lose my mojo. It becomes very difficult to get myself started again.
Recently I read that the cause is the overwhelming aspect of the total project and not breaking it down into smaller pieces.
The solution is to do persuade yourself to work on it for just a few minutes.
Then, the Zeigarnik Effect kicks in. The Ziegarnik Effect says our brains hold on to unfinished tasks. In other words, we like to finish what we start. http://sourcesofinsight.com/why-do-we-procrastinate/
So, that's what I did this week. I convinced myself to try another make-up painting and to do a little on it each day.
It's not perfect but it is progress.
