I read an interesting blog post over on the FineArtViews Blog about how important it is to maintain creative inertia, or flow. In my own creative efforts, whether photography, writing, or marketing, the more I commit each day, the easier it becomes to keep the ideas flowing and inspired. I notice this clearly when I’m away on a photo shoot for a few days, and each day I tend to see better and find it easier to create the images I’m after. The motivation to get up at 4:30 every morning comes from the “flow” I experienced the morning before, and so it just feeds on itself. As has been said many times, photography is about seeing, and so the more I see, the more I want to look. The same holds true for other daily practices I enjoy, whether yoga, meditation, or reading, the more regular it becomes, the easier it is to practice.
I found this especially true after my ankle fracture, and how difficult it was to get into regular exercise again, not so much because of the physical limitations, but because I was out of my routine for so long. Now it seems I can’t let a day go by where I don’t work on some aspect of my business, whether on the creative or marketing side, and the results seem to come much easier and faster than trying to get huge tasks accomplished in short periods of time.
