Weekly Report 3/20 to 3/26
I have a habit of “taking breaks” after completing something. It may be just a small part of a larger project, but I will still take a break. The peace this break brings can be beneficial in that they give me a fresh perspective to reevaluate my work. However, these breaks can also create stagnancy and procrastination. It is vital for me to quickly and effectively begin working on my project once more. Otherwise, my progress will slow to a halt.
In a way that is what happened these past two weeks. After finishing the one hundred paintings my priorities shifted and I began working on other things like my ISM II Application and a few tests for other classes. At the moment, I find myself at the tipping point between stagnancy and progress. I need to take action and begin working once more. Although I have already applied for a show, Ms. Vernon and I decided I should apply for another two. Once that is completed I need to begin editing my video footage and record whatever is needed for the documentary. I still plan to reach out to someone for help, but I need to do so soon. If I continue to avoid doing so I might never finish my documentary.
Every single one of these goals are behind schedule. That does not mean I cannot finish in time. I began the product early enough that I still can finish in time. Nonetheless, I need to take the initiative to do so. That is why I have decided to set a few goals for the week. I idea is that by setting up small goals, I will be able to better stay on track. By the end of the week I hope to have begun the editing process, to have reached out to someone for help, and to have finished applying to at least one more show. I cannot elongate this “break,” so I will use this week to gain some motivation.
