As an entrepreneur, artist, and writer, I’ve had to condition myself over the years to make progress when it comes to achieving my personal and professional goals. One big thing that I’ve learned is the importance of not mistaking busy work with progress. What do I mean by this? I can stay busy cleaning my study all day, running errands, working outside in my garden, or hanging out with my family, but doing all of these things won’t help me to accomplish my goals.

The big question is how can someone stay inspired to create, even when they get busy? You Have To Incorporate Inspiration Into Your Day Staying inspired is a lot like staying in love because both require work.
