The mood for web design
I'd like to know how everyone else gets in the "mood" for web design/SEO/Marketing/Graphic design/Programming or what ever else it is you do in IT.
I personally find it hard to get rolling. It's not because I don't love IT and building websites, I do. I'm highly addicted to it, but I guess I am more of a "binge developer".
Once I get started with building or working on a project, my eagerness snowballs and I find myself going crazy for 24 hours straight. Then I crash for a couple of hours, but my brain wont stop so I get stuck back into it all for another 12 hours or so until I finally feel that I have accomplished something, THEN I crash for a good 12 hours straight.
This is why I can't work in IT "as a job". I used to and I've done some contracting since, but I find it hard to just switch myself on and off on queue. I have to "feel like it". If I feel like I HAVE to do something, I will procrastinate like an evaporating dew drop hanging from a twig. So, now I don't work in IT and I am not looking for IT jobs.
Even so, having a 9-5 job is still hard for me. Sometimes I come home and I don't WANT to go to bed. I want to complete some stuff that I 'have in mind'. I get started and I'm working flat out to accomplish what I want to do, watching the clock. So, now I'm kinda in a struggle between making a living and building my "online Empire".
I don't think I will EVER fully succeed until I can just sit down, work when I want to work, during the times "I" feel like it, until I think I am done, without having to worry about who I owe this month. It's not that I am lazy, because when I do work (online), I get 1 weeks work done in 48 hours, then I have a day or so rest and do it again.
Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just that I am feral and don't know how to manage my time?
Are there any shrinks here? Why is it that I can't (and NEVER have been able to) work with a schedule? Why am I so feral?
