So today I did a photoshoot for work. I haven’t got to do a lot of creativity because now I work for someone else. It is often hard for me at times to keep my mouth shut. I have way different ideas than my boss. My boss is ecommerce. So boring. He wants to sell. I am so not that way. I am creative and I want to create. So here is what I have heard from him the last few weeks “you’re not organized enough”, “we are in business to sell not be creative”, “that idea won’t work” yadda yadda yadda… So frustrating and I know many of you relate.
So recently my creativity has been suppressed. I have been a workhorse, robot, data pusher. Whatever you want to call it. I just got off a 30+ day streak of work. Some days were 12 hours. It was hard. The important thing is we got launched.
Today was the first time I was inspired to be creative at work. It felt amazing and I miss that feeling. I need to chase that feeling more often or I will be burnt out soon. At my company we sell photographic equipment. Here is a photo I produced today with only natural light some products and of course a cute model dog for our “social media” pages.
So last night I was on StumbleUpon which is my 20 min down time before bed since Matt has taken over the tv. I e-mailed myself this quote that I came across on there and today I think it fits so well and hopefully inspire you because I know how much these words ring true to me.
