Just Enjoy What You Do: Or—Drawing as an Analogy of Goal SettingMarch 2, 2018
I’ve spent the week on my blog going over self-evaluations and the need for goals. Sometimes it’s important to just enjoy what you do—what you did.
In today’s post there’a a sketch of a young man with green hair. I did this sketch from a Sktchy photo.
It’s actually sort of an analogy for what I’ve been writing about this week.
I began with the idea that I would do a sketch in red color pencil. (Goal.)
But the paper didn’t like the pencil. (Reality and circumstance interfering with the goal.)
So I picked up a black pen that was drying out. (Less than optimal circumstances.)
I starting reinforcing the lines I really wanted. (Got back on track.)
Added the bit I always knew I wanted to have in vibrant color, the hair. (Salvaged what I could of the original goal.)
Threw on a little junk paint—a mix from a previous painting—for shading. (Let go of perfect and simply enjoyed the process of adding some dimension, i.e., bolstering the goal.)
Signed it and caught up on the Marvel Universe. (Reward.)
If this week’s posts were too long for you to get through (I get it you have places to be) then accept this as the whole point.
Now go sketch some “analogies” of your own.
