When I am working on a design project, like you, it’s not the only thing going on in my life. I usually have at least five OTHER design projects, children’s activities, dinner to prepare (stop snickering, hubby), phones ringing, a flat tire, and my CPA calling on the other line to talk about my taxes. SO, how in the world do I have the chance to come up with amazing inspiration every day and bound out of bed full of great, new ideas? Little secret here….I don’t!
Instead, I check out on life. Like totally disappear with my laptop or iPad to Pin.
Oh yes – I am addicted to pinning on Pinterest. I can’t stop! I sometimes disappear from my frantic life for hours. I actually sat in the car yesterday after I pulled into the garage and pinned for 20 minutes before the kids came back out to find me. But, I had great images for my new mood boards I was working on. And I was instantly energized.
So, now that you have my confession and if you aren’t pinning (and yes, there are people out there who haven’t heard of Pinterest yet) you need to log in today and get going. You will never be the same!
Now you know one of my best secrets for Designing With a Deadline!
