This week’s show is all about making the time you need to produce your creative works. Well… it’s mostly about that. I get to that point by briefly talking about how I read an article on The Digital Reader about a super-cool eink device called the reMarkable. I’m extremely excited about seeing how this device fares when it comes out at the end of the summer next year (2017, if you’re reading this in the future). I’ll be talking a bit more about the reMarkable and my forays into putting Arch Linux on a Surface Pro 3 later this week on the Linux Lugcast show (you can listen or participate live this Friday evening).
Oh, and Krita 3.1 has been released, go update!
After that digression, though, my main focus this episode has been on productivity… making the time to work on your projects. I break it down thusly:
- Figure out your personal create/consume ratio
- Make the necessary sacrifices of consume time to make room for creating
- Optimize that time so you’re as productive as possible in it
- Squeeze out extra minutes in seconds where you didn’t think you had time
Of course, even though I’ve listed out the rough basis here, you should still listen to the show because I go into each bit with more detail (and digressions, of course. Wouldn’t be me otherwise, right?)
My question for you this week: what kind of things have you done to make time for creating? I’m always looking for new things to try out.
And as a small second, what do you think about these show notes? Do you prefer the list-style that I’ve used on previous shows, or is this in-line format more to your taste?
See you next week!
