CHOOSE... ARGH!

Updated: Sep 24

Did a ‘finish at 1:30am’ shift. Back at computer after exhausting sleep (a BIG SHOW story) at 7:45am. I am getting a boost in publicly viewable productivity seeing what this WIX site can do. I've been here before in 2018. I get inspired by being able to design fast.


Early this morning I looked at what I can use of what I have done before on WIX. I copy stuff in, it takes a while to go across so I do it again, two versions suddenly show, my footer gets corrupted, I can't get at the code. Argh... I find I can go back in versions and at 1:25am delete one and a half hours work. This is - a part of - my life.


This morning I look at the redesign and some of it doesn't work on iPad IOS. Hmmm...


SO MUCH WORK? OVERWHELMING... HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT?


I look at what I've done before on Wix to see what I can use? I find template guides I can adopt. As I see the technical solution the design solution occurs. How to simplify, create the pipes to let the oil flow.


How to stop designing and be practising, producing and sharing?

I review the work, a screenshot of the sites I've created is here. It's thousands of hours of work. Some of it is repetitious, it's processing, as is this site. The front page here keeps 'incrementally' changing. 'We are storytellers‘ in the 'About Welcome' said hello yesterday. Christiane would tell you she said that years ago. She says that a lot. A big statement.


What is the core of what I am about? Storyteller…



Loads of the pages within have eloquent writing, super graphics and work. So why not just use those? I know, I know.. I just get on and make new... Why? Stop it.


IMPORTANT QUESTION...


What am I afraid of?... That is the gist of this design circle I think. How can I break the circle and get to be focused on production? What is that focus?


The focus… Everything! Why?
