The Magic of Being 'Locked in"
Much of the time creative people are in different stages of bringing forth their creative work. Unfortunately, some of this work doesn't actually see the light of day. This can be for various reasons, but the most common one is that the motivation that comes from an idea being new fades as you work on it. There may need to be a lot of new ideas brought forth to get that particular project finished but over all, the work involved in creativity can just get old. But take heart, wise magicians, there is hope. Once in a while magic comes into play and we get totally committed or 'locked in' on a project. When that happens it is easy to doggedly keep after solutions and find time to work. Because it doesn't happen all the time I suggest that when it does you visit how it feels. That feeling of being 'locked in' on something will become a resource for you. Tuck that sense of 'locked in' away in your achievement tool chest. Then if you have a project that is important but is fading call up that experience of 'locked in'. It is quite energizing. No waffling back and forth about 'should I or shouldn't I?' You just are going to get it done, no matter what comes your way or for whatever reason you have or don't have. It is yours, you have chosen it and you are doing it. No outside considerations. I hope you can experience the magic of being 'locked in' on a lovely creative gem. May the spark be with you.
