4 ways to boost productivity in the studio

We are slightly obsessed with productivity. That might be unhealthy. But also we need to get work done and often we are working against ourselves. I hope these tips help you.

1. Goals

I can't be the first person to tell you that you need to have goals. Your goals need to be specific and attainable. Grab onto a large goal and then break it into steps (small goals).


>I need to finish this commission (big goal)

>Today, I need to work on the XYZ (don't even say you have to finish XYZ today, that might still be unattainable goal and you'll lose those good vibes if you fail.

>But maybe saying "finish XYZ by the end of the week" will be attainable. (and you'll get a mood boost if you finish early).

Breaking everything into smaller attainable steps will help you stay motivated and positive. Set yourself up for success, not failure. You're the boss.
