Snazzy Hat and Thoughts On Productivity

Here's another somber fellow - it must be January. This is a doodle I scanned and painted in Photoshop.

So the goal to update my blog weekly seems to be going alright so far. The purpose? Mostly to help me get over this silly notion I have that everything I do has to knock peoples' socks off. Maybe this would be fine, except that when perfectionism teams up with my natural tendency toward laziness, I start thinking, 'why even start? It's never going to be amazing enough!' which, of course, will never do. There's no way around it - I've just gotta make stuff; the failure to do so would always leave a gaping hole in my life.

So, even if it's just for fun, even if it's no more than glorified doodles, my aim is to keep doing something, at least, and throwing it out there. I've still got ambitions for projects that will indeed blow away your inner footwear, but in the meantime my mantra will be 'something is better than nothing.'

What do you think? Thoughts on productivity? Avoiding the pitfalls of perfectionism? Snazzy hats??
