As a creator and artist it’s very easy to come up with new ideas concepts and projects. They are exciting, can create a new buzz but sometimes a project just doesn’t get completed or seen all the way through because the artist “found something new” and exciting to work on.
I can’t lie I’ve done this. It’s easier to follow through on a project when it’s for someone else and when in getting paid but personal projects … the remain unfinished or I lose interest.
Ultimately I think it’s a lack of discipline to see something through to the end.
When o tan track and feild my coach always told me it doesn’t matter how long it takes you, just be sure to cross the finish line. I think he’s right.
I tend to write my project ideas down, this way it doesn’t become a distraction. Yet lately I’ve been itching to share a project with you. However in order for it to be successful I know I need to pair it with my design efforts this way it doesn’t become another dead project.
Are you an artist or designer? Can you relate? Have you ever redirected or resurrected dead projects?
