Inspiration...or lack there of, really. What do you do when you lack the inspiration to do what you love? Has it become work at that point? When it happens to me, in most cases, I will push myself to get up and do it anyway. I am a photographer. So for me this means that I need to get out of bed and make myself shoot.
As a self employed man, I set goals for myself. One of them is to make sure that I get up at least twice a week to photograph the sunrise. Living in a northern suburb of Denver, it can be somewhat of a challenge to do this with that sort of frequency and still find something interesting to shoot. Toss in the fact that at this time of the year, the sun is rising earlier every day. This morning was a rough one for me. I woke 30 min before the sunrise, made coffee, got dressed, grabbed my camera gear and got out the door in time to catch the sunrise. A rather lifeless, boring sunrise I might say.
The good news is I am up, alive and well. I fulfilled my goal this week of waking up and shooting regardless of the fact that it was a challenge to find a good subject to capture. Today will be a good day. I will shoot more be productive and continue to build my business. What more can a person ask for?
So tell me, what do you do when you are uninspired?
