Letting my brain wander tonight, I used MindNode to map out an issue that’s been plaguing me for the last few months or so. I tried to be as true to my real thought process as possible.
I’d really, really love some help on this.
I get an idea and I want so badly to act on it.
But the creative process gets blown up bigger and bigger and bigger in my head,
until I feel so overwhelmed and distracted that I just run away,
get on Facebook, watch The Office.
By the end, I get half-finished drafts and double the contained-creativity anxiety I began with.
I would love nothing more than to break this cycle.
What’s up with me?
Does this happen to you?
Does it chafe, like mine does?
How can I snap out of it?
