Fundamentals: Better Than the Alternative

I’m only drawing a bit each day but it is better than the alternative.

Five plus years ago when I started my daily art project I knew that I would have these times in my life where my motivation was waning and doing some kind of art every day would feel like a choir. I made my daily goal easy to reach just for this reason. All I have to do is some artwork for at least 30 minutes a day. It’s easy to scoff at and think it will amount to nothing but the alternative is just that. The purpose of this simple daily goal is to prevent complete stagnation and lack of moving forward. Yes it’s only a little a day but the alternative is doing nothing and I’ve done that too many times in my life and it led to a lot of lost time. Don’t underestimate 30 minutes a day, the extra 1% or the single drop in a bucket. It collects, it grows and hopefully will someday become a torrent of creativity.
