I know themes are everywhere. Taco Tuesday. Throw-back Thursday. Woman-Crush Wednesday. And so on.
I’ve thought about themes and how they can be beneficial to a creative practice. Here are some themes I’ve been thinking about.
1. Motivational Monday.
There are so many motivational quotes and creativit quotes that could go on this day.
2. Tip Tuesday.
Afer so many years of studying creativity and developing my own theories and ideas, I have a lot of tips I can share.
3. What-if Wednesday
This sounds like it could be a brainstorming day.to come up with more ideas for future projects.
4. Thankful Thursday
In November, a lot of people do a month of Thanksgiving. But why limit it to November? For that matter, why limit it to one day of the week? Of course, it’s not. But it is a day of public gratitude.
5. Focus Friday
I have a friend who does Fnish Friday, where she wraps up ny outstanding projects for the week. I decided to kind of flip that and do a Focus Friday. This day is meant to make a list of what you need to do for the next week to be successful. You don’t have to p lan it out yet unless you do your weekly planning on Fridays, but at least you’ll have an idea of what needs to be done when you sit down TO plan it.
I know I said this was a list of five themes, but we’ve covered everything but the weekend, so….
6. Siesta Saturday
Yes. Siesta. Take a nap. It’s the weekend. There isn’t a law that says you have to run-run-run, go-go-go every single minute. You need to take some time to rest and recharge.
7. Serene Sunday
In our family, Sundays have historically been a quiet day. Church/reflection/quiet time. Whatever you want to do with it. Think about it like the calm before the storm that is the work (or school) week.
Are these themes that work for you? What would you change? Let me know in the comments.
