For me, this often results in my studio looking like it was hit by a tornado. And the last thing I feel like doing after hours of immersing myself in a creative job is devoting energy to organizing my workspace. Eventually, I'm left with a massive pile of madness, and the urge to put things in order falls even lower on the priority list.

posted a graphic that I'd made (above), and titled the post "A Simple Reminder." One of my biggest challenges is learning how to overcome my habit of feeling guilty about what I haven't accomplished instead of being proud of what I have accomplished. We are our own harshest critics, and putting too much pressure on ourselves can end up stifling our creativity and cause a loss of focus, leading to disorganization. Make time for yourself, breathe, and let it all go at the end of the day. In the morning, you'll wake up more refreshed and inspired. A clear mind makes staying organized and productive much easier than a scattered one.
