Oh productivity you big tease

I've been thinking a lot about productivity- something that is weird to measure in the creative industries. So much of crafting concepts and ideas is best achieved through not trying. In a way you have to procrastinate in order to give your brain enough time to actually deliver you the goods. I am someone who likes to stubbornly hack away until something is done but am learning this isn't always the best route now. Today I cleaned, went for a long walk, saw a friend and gutted my flat. None of this was course work but the whole time my brain was whirring away in the background and I feel much better for having done some physical and low stakes activities. It felt like a productive rest. Basically, my brain got a break through my body doing boring stuff. And now I can put it to work again and hopefully it will gimme those good thoughts.
