This week I was struggling with “recharging my battery” and finding time to work on my practices.
My work week was more hectic than normal. Long days with more context switching and cognitive load than usual. Plus, my anxiety with where the world is right now. Oh yeah, just that…
I didn’t make my goal of finishing an illustration I have in progress, but I did make some progress on it, in a round about way.
I’m subscribing to this technique from Ness Labs:
Once you feel familiar enough—which means that you can grasp the concepts and can articulate them, but still feel very uncomfortable using them—you should start creating something bigger
So I did manage to get a lot of practice in to grasp the concepts, and I’m still feeling uncomfortable.
Speaking of that practice, here are my Doodles for the week
I drew a simple illustration for work, that was a timeline of the upcoming quarter, and we used that to read-out some planning to stakeholders. I can’t share that here of course. We’ve done this process in other ways until this time around. I’m looking forward to feedback to see if everyone involved found value in the altered process.
The relentless optimism of Ted Lasso is intoxicating, in the best way possible. This show is the perfect escape for me in this moment. More optimism. More defining success through positive relationships. And more laughs. Yes, please!
Speaking of relationships, I’ve watched this a couple times this week. I find it fascinating. I’ve been a part of some research projects, but nothing with the duration and meaning of this one.
In no particular order
