2. Procrastination – Can also be a form of performance anxiety. Tell yourself you will work for ten minutes to start. If after ten minutes you still do not want to be working on what you are, change it. There are so many things we juggle as artists, that there are always things to be productive.
3. Disorder – I know, I know, I can hear someone thinking now that they are visual people and they require all of their materials out in front of them in order to be creative. The problem with that is that you can wind up with too MUCH stuff out and become visually overwhelmed, not knowing what to focus on. Or you just simply can not find the tools and materials that you need with all the clutter.
4. Over-Thinking – Guilty as charged! This is my weakness. It can be used as a form of procrastination or perfectionism. You simply are making things more complicated than they need to be. Just start already!
5. Comparing yourself to others – We are all on our own path and your only real competition is yourself. Ask if you are growing and challenging yourself. All the rest is just distraction.
