Reading Metamorphosing Wallflower’s post yesterday about Living Life on the Edge of Procrastination prompted me to once again reflect on what i have achieved in the last 2 years or so.
I used to be a huge procrastinator but I found a way to get around that by putting my fingers in too many pies. I have called this solution numerous things, including DIVERSIFICATION, which is a kind way of saying that I am investing time in MANY VERY IMPORTANT THINGS.
I think I’ve developed my own version of the Pomodoro technique where you break your work into short intervals, say 30 minutes, and then take a break. In my version I have several tasks on the go at any one time and can switch between them quite happily, and hence never get bored.
I’ve chucked together images from the last 2 years since I retired from full time work. Two years of making stuff—making images, making objects, growing things, growing ideas, growing techniques. Some of the many pies can be seen here.
