Ideal Creative Day

I swapped “ideal creative days” with Sydney. Here’s a quick breakdown of her day:

7 am — wake/stretch/yoga
8 am — breakfast/social media time
10 am — review emails/planner/walk dog
11 am — start working/editing
12 pm — parkville coffee/creating/lunch
4 pm — update planner/go home
5 pm — netflix/relax/chores
7pm — dinner/review today’s work

Overall Sydney and I have similar ideal days. I couldn’t execute her day minute-by-minute, but I tried getting the basic schedule down. Usually I try to make it to my 5:30 am work out class, so her slower mornings was a nice change. I love getting things done early in the morning, but I also greatly love sleep. Like Sydney, I also start my day by checking my emails and focusing on what needs to be accomplished. Personally, I find it extremely difficult to create at home, so visiting a coffee shop forces me to focus with minor distractions. I always benefit from a change of scenery for a creative/inspiration boost. I wonder if I actually executed my ideal day if it would be as great as I imagine. Throughout this experience it made me realize that my time management sucks! I have so much time in the day… where does it all go and why do I never get anything done? It would be interesting for me to write down what I do every minute of the day to try to increase productivity.
