Being an artist is more than just a part of your life; it is all-encompassing. This means that time management is crucial in all aspects of your artistic journey.

Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them.

GTD David Allen

The more information bouncing around inside your head, the harder it is to decide what needs attention. As a result, you spend more time thinking about your tasks than actually doing them. When information piles up in your head, it leads to stress, overwhelm, and uncertainty.

1-CAPTURE-Write it down

Write down what you need to do and get it out of your head. The act of writing it down in a list will reduce overwhelm and anxiety right away!

You can use an app- To Doist or Evernote

Notes on your phone

Or a physical folder

2-CLARIFY (or Process)

A: What is it?

  • Studio Related
  • Professional Practice Related
  • Personal Life
  • Reference

B: Can you get it done in less than 2 minutes? If so, do it now.

Understanding WHAT needs to get done and in what part of your life is empowering. Not only have you released “remembering it” in your brain, but you understand where in your life there is movement.
