Juggling too many Creative Projects and Ideas at once?

The Artist Juggler

Do you have trouble deciding which style or medium is your strongest direction? Many artists face these challenges. What you may lack is a sense of direction in your art career.

Here are some tips from Career Artist Coach - Renee Phillips:

Strive For Balance 
Balance can be an enormous challenge for artists who have talent in many areas. Creativity is our greatest tool when it is balanced with having a realistic perspective, plans of action and time-management.

Contemplate The Outcome 
Make choices based on establishing priorities and goal-setting rather than impulsive responses. 

Choose Priorities 
Your career is much easier to manage when you practice the art of establishing priorities. You’ll turn feelings of being overwhelmed into peace of mind when you simplify and streamline. There are only 24 hours in a day so choose your priorities wisely. As the saying goes, in your life time you can do anything you want, you just won’t have time to do everything you want.

Plan For Success 
Creating an Art Business Plan is essential for any serious professional artist. I helped Jack develop a 6-month plan and a 2 year plan. This important exercise helped him stay committed and on track. He had a blueprint for success and was able to follow through with a sense of confidence and clarity.

Reduce Multi-Tasking and Expand Your Focus 
If you are a person who is frequently engaged in multitasking, according to many experts it has been proven that our brains just aren’t equipped for multitasking tasks that do require brainpower.
