#everydaycreativebattle 1/365

Have you seen this TED talk from Wait But Why? It's about the length of your life. Here's a post from him on the same subject.

Cliff Notes: there are 4680 weeks in a 90 year life. It really doesn't sound like it's a lot of time, especially if you want to accomplish something great. In the above image, the black squares represent all the weeks I've lived, and the white ones are the ones i have left. I find this simple visual can really put things in perspective. 

Next: Have you seen this clip?

I love Casey’s work - and I love his thought process and approach to life and the creative endeavor. It inspired me to get moving and do more creatively. It inspired me to do this experiment. It’s nowhere near what he’s doing, but I believe it’s a start in the right direction.

I pledge to create at least 1 form of content for this blog for the next 365 days.

I call it my #everydaycreativebattle.  I don’t have a clear plan on what each of those pieces of content will be, but I’d like to hit the 365 goal (at least). I do have some recent product samples sitting around the office and more will begin to show up soon, so I hope I’ll be able to share those soon, so that will be some content. Photography tests, videos, presentations and graphic design can be others.  I don't have it all figured out yet - the hope is that I can get those creative juices flowing every day and inspire myself and perhaps another person. 

Bear with me - I’ve tried this once before and failed - I don’t plan on failing again. 

All the content will live on this blog here. This isn't for the purpose of money - as you can see i have no ads on here - it's really a way to explore and catalog this experiment. If you have any feedback, drop me a note if you choose to do so.

1/365 #everydaycreativebattle - Yep, this is the first one.
