Sometimes you feel as though someone knows you better than you know yourself! This came in last week from Robert Genn's 'Painters keys' -
"In my part-time, unpaid job as an art coach, I hear from folks who are suffering from lackadaisicalitis. While they may be naturally talented, they seldom produce art and have little motivation. It's easy to say they don't want things badly enough. ................ The idea comes easily to some and runs against the grain of others. It may have something to do with fear of failure. "Organizational fatigue" is where a person gets tired of being in systems that are frequently aborted. In supposedly self-motivated lives, I call this problem "the contrarian trap," and some folks have it in spades.
lackadaisicalitis, seldom produce, fear of failure and particularly, organizational fatigue - I recognise them all. The very fact that my last post was full of re-iterations of things that I can already do proves how far I have retreated recently and that a boost is needed.
Genn goes on to suggest dedicated 'Power Hours' planned into the day and I think this has to be something I try as soon as possible!
