This is awesome! You have defined my life perfectly! Thank you!!!

I'll be sharing this across my networks.

I quit locking myself in my office for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted my family to see me living life "out loud." I wanted them to see me reading, praying, meditating, and creating. Second, they complained that they "never" saw me. And finally, I missed them - and truly thought I could multi-task.

It clearly didn't work - for all the reasons you stated above.

And your kitchen table example is good. But once I"m established at the kitchen table, it becomes my workspace and I don't want to change. I usually find a place that is conducive to creative flow, and when I find it, I stay - be it the kitchen, den, or a local coffee shop. I hate moving.

And then, there's the idea of set work hours - that is a challenge for this melancholic creative - I'll work on that.

This is an issue that frustrates me in my free-lance, entrepreneurial friends. They seem to always be late, always underestimate their time, and always over-promise their customers. It is also something we struggle with at home.

For instance, I know it takes me 35 minutes to drive to a common destination - but because it is so close to a 1/2 hour, I tend to round down. But when I thought it through, and realized that it always takes longer to get out of the house than I planned - and there may be other delays, I started to round up to 45 minutes. But even typing this now, I realize, I should just give myself an hour.

Good points Eva!

I did not feel this in Rainier, Or - just across the river from St. Helens.

I did this 15 years ago - smartest thing I ever did. Yes, there have been bumps and bruises - but I've never been happier!
