Re: Art Block: Many ideas but not motivated to start

Consider the money you are tossing away. Perfect ideas are set aside because you aren't sure if you will have an uninterrupted block of time and energy to make good on the ideas. Maybe you would be more motivated by putting $500 in an envelope and promise to give it to a spouse or family member if you don't crank out a finished piece in a week. Only you know if the piece falls short of your 'great idea', so its ok to fake it, as long as you protect that cash! It turns into a game, a challenge, with low pressures for perfection. You just have to win your money back. Meanwhile, once you start doing art, you will regain the spark, the motivational energy, to "work ahead" in case you have interruptions in some future week. Now, this assumes you can make $500 on a week's effort. Maybe it is five times more, so then put $2500 in the envelope!
Funny how big numbers tip the scale for productivity motivation.
