When I was younger, I always watched films with the counter on the player set to “Time Remaining”, so I could see how much longer it would be until I could go and do something else.
Even if I was watching my favourite film, I had one eye, and half a mind, not on right now, but on what would follow after.
By always counting down to the next, I was counting myself out of fully experiencing – and enjoying – the right now.
Do you ever find yourself doing similar when you’re creating?
