You Are In Good Company It You Are Flailing About

July 8, 2016

The most interesting aspect of this infographic is that there is no common pattern to the ideal daily routine of the top creative people in the world. In his book, Daily Rituals: How Artists Work Daily Rituals: How Artists Work,  Mason Currey presents the lives of 161 creative minds to explore “how, exactly, they made the time each day to do their work” and he could find no common pattern! In a blog post on Daily Rituals in State it is encouraging that he writes  ” At the very least, I hope you’ll find some comfort in these examples. Even the so-called great minds flailed about, made false starts, endured blocks and dry spells, obsessed over trivialities, and wasted huge chunks of time. If this sounds like you—well, you’re in good company.”
