There were thousands of emails to sort through and not enough coffee in my system. For years I’ve worked with my best friend on a music site that he has held together despite our being partners. Sometimes I blog, sometimes I don’t. The same goes for my personal site. Blogging every day turned into considering shutting down the url. Just when I think I’m done, something happens that makes remember why I started with both of the sites. The same can be said for a number of things I’ve started throughout the years. When I’m really into the project or activity, my passion and productivity are unmatched. When I’m chilling, there’s little to no movement and seemingly nothing that can be done about it.
As of today I’m on ten. My vision for the music site has me beyond hyped. I’m focused on getting as much done before I hit another lull. But, my real goal is avoiding the lull all together.
How do you maintain the passion when it comes to passion projects? Do you take a break? Do you dead the project once the spark is gone? Do you keep working until the spark comes back?
