How much do I know of my limits?

I’ve been asking myself this question often over the past few days. Last weekend tired me so much that I’m doing practically nothing creative.

I realized that I don’t have a strong sense of how creative I can be, of how long I can sustain a creative spell before tiring out. It seems to me that it’s rather silly of me to push myself to be creative when I don’t know what I’m capable of.

Of course, I can never know the precise answer to this. Creativity can’t be exactly measured. But I feel that I should have at least a rough idea of how much I can usually give before I tucker out.

So, I’m not pushing my creativity, and plan to continue this for the next week or two. I want to observe myself. I’m beginning to notice my rhythms now; times when I’m tired and times when I’m energized. I’m building a better idea of my most productive and least productive times.

This strikes me as a good thing. It’s time to listen to the whispers of my heart.

What is it about the internet that causes so many people to make fools of them
