Get LOST when you CAN


I just finished doing four 15-18 hour animation work days in a row... why would I do that? Procrastination beckons to me as it does with anyone else so when I'm tired and faced with a ton of really complex shots I'd rather just sit down and GRIND and GRIND until they are finished without taking a breath because as soon as you stop to take a breath procrastination grabs you... if I let that happen these last few days of work could have turned into 2 weeks easy... its in those times you need to just focus on the task and lose yourself... stay on it and keep fighting no matter what happens... work through it... before you know it the challenge will be over and you'll tell yourself "oh that wasn't so bad"

So tenacity is important to work this way... when faced with a challenge I HAVE TO overcome it.. I won't backdown until I have conquered it... some times I'll let it think it beat me and like get in bed... and pretend to sleep... then I'll get back on the computer and pwn it! ^ ^ OR I don't sleep trying to fix it....

I'll have to like go outside and talk to someone tomorrow haha
