There isn’t enough time. It’s a scarce resource. If we want to accomplish anything in our short lives, we have to allocate our time well.

Life coaches have a standard riposte when someone says they don’t have enough time to do something: you’re a lazy sod who can’t be bothered.  It’s not that you don’t have time: you just don’t want to prioritise and give up something else. Sleep, for instance. Or GoT. Or whatever internet activity accumulates into a huge time-sucking blackhole.

To an extent, this is true. If we want to turn our ideas into action, we’ll need to allocate time to do so.

Thing is, we can’t be “on” all the time. The creative mind needs a breather and some feet-up time. Batteries need to be recharged and so on.

Besides, some people have rock-fast commitments that don’t a leave them with much time to begin with. Children, for instance. That doesn’t make it impossible to make time for creative work, but it does make it a whole lot harder.

So where does the balance lie?

Let’s try this: if we break down the big idea into small steps, how small does each step need to be to allow us to make progress with the investment of 30 or 45 or 60 minutes per day?

Me? I can write a blog post in 30 to 45 minutes one day and draw the accompanying cartoon in the same amount of time the next.

What could you do in daily 30-minute increments?

Jon Wilkening  left a successful career in finance to become a fine art photographer. His whole life, he felt like he was different and couldn't shake a sense of not quite belonging. It's hardly surprising when you think he's an American whose childhood was...

Fun animation, though perhaps pigeon lovers should steer clear

Introduction
First off: I don't really use Google+. I only maintain my account because if I delete it, it will impact my YouTube channel. Sorry about that. It means I'm the worst type of social media bore here. I post, but I rarely interact, I'm afraid.

Short "About me": I tell stories. Mostly through images (still and moving), sometimes through audio or doodles. I write as well. My company is Show & Tell Communications. My visual work lives mostly at www.rogeroverall.net. My best known podcast is The Documentary Photographer.
