Too Busy

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I want Airship to become. About what I’ve been spending my time on these past few months and what needs to change. I’m happy to finally see the growth the business has made, but it has led to some new problems I wasn’t quite prepared for.

Until recently, I have not been so busy that taking an hour or two out of my workday to keep up with my blog or social media wasn’t doable. But I filled up my schedule a bit fuller than I should have and I paid the price for it.

For a while now I’ve felt “too busy.” Too busy to take any extra time to write for this blog, work on passion projects, or even to just share my process on social media. These are all things I care about tremendously, but when things got tough, I cut them out.

I am a designer, yet I did not design my life in any logical way. I would never let a design get overly complicated. So why would I let my schedule and my life get that way?

One of my daily posts after putting in my notice at my job was about my ideal schedule. I followed that schedule a grand total of 4-5 times before giving in to the temptation to just do what I felt like.

The painful truth is that I wasn’t “too busy.” I just wasn’t managing my day responsibly.

I need to get back into a routine so I can take control of my day again.

New Posting Schedule

I’m going to redouble my efforts. I’m going to blog every week about brand identity and design, continue to teach by streaming on twitch, and share my work and process on instagram twice a week.

I have projects that are almost done and ready to share, fun things planned for the future, and topics I want to talk about, so get ready!

Most importantly I want to know, what would you like me to talk more about? Is there a tool I use that you’d like to learn more about? Do you have questions about designing logos, websites, or illustrations? I want to help, so fire those questions at me!

I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots and sharing things with you again. It’s been too long.

Onward and Upward.
