After launching a brand new web store selling some of my favorite skill toys, one would figure I would be very excited to push it out there to the world.
Truth is, I still am really excited to share the joy of Flow. It might just be my reason for being, my Ikigai.
But if it really was my true passion, why has it been about 8 months since I last posted a whimsical update? I mean, I just launched a new web store and all I did was post an article on a new blog that nobody knows about either.
Overly Underwhelmed, is how I’ll call it.
The feeling is a bit like being overwhelmed about doing nothing.
It’s likely that any rational person would just, y’know, do the stuff they need to do to move their life forward, but the life of the artist has to be overly complicated, or it just doesn’t feel worthy of living through it, of course.
In the meantime, I even made a video about “overthinking” and seemed to do nothing about it anyway.
I think this has been referred to before by many great creatives as, “The Madness”.
To be consumed by mania and devour the senses.
Drips of inspiration quench the thirst of curiosity, just enough to stay sane, thanks to good company and the internet.
Momentum is much stronger than inspiration as a driving force to create.
This force is derived from habits and routines, and it can happen very simply too.
If I had all the time in the world, I would probably waste most of it and then wonder what happened with myself.
If I had just one hour a day to change the world, I would probably get it done in a year.
