The Bead Biz- Getting in the Groove
I know a lot of bead makers and designers are getting ready for summer shows, with myself included. I thought I would pass on a simple tip that helps me stay on task and inspired.
Do you ever sit down late at night or early in the morning ready to get to work and then feel overwhelmed with the amount of tasks at hand?
I know I get overwhelmed and don't know where to start. If you're like me it takes a couple of hours before I really get in the groove.
I have found when you are working and it's about time to stop, don't finish what your doing. Leave your necklace half strung, leave half of your Etsy listings unlisted, don't clean up. Leave it. Why? The next time you are ready to work you can just pick up right where you left off. When you come in to your studio space the next day and you see that half strung necklace and you still haven't had all your coffee, you can finish stringing it. Picking up right where you left off will get you back in the groove faster.
