How to stay with my New Year’s resolutions?

January 2nd, 2007

I set myself some ambitious New Year’s resolutions: to draw, paint, sculpt and do photography every single day. January 1st was a success, but how long will I be able to keep up with this?

I think that good planning will help. It was a lucky accident that I had some clay here at my grandmother’s house where I am spending the holidays, otherwise I would not have been able to the sculpture work (or rather, “exercise”) yesterday. I have painting materials here that let me paint daily as well. But what about the future?
It is clear to me that I need to make some sort of traveling kit to carry my essential art materials with me wherever I go.

For ordinary days, I will need to make sure that I keep everything organized so that the “energy barrier” for starting with each type of work remains as low as possible.

I guess I should add that another one of my New Year’s resolutions is to write a blog post every single day.
