Great tips, as a fine artist I am always looking for balance when it comes to my creativity, as at times it can seem chaotic. Thanks for posting!!

I find that, on some jobs, I just work better when I have a tight deadline, it keeps me from overthinking or rethinking the smallest details. That's not always the case, sometimes I need to deliberate the tiny minute details, but for most projects, those take care of themselves if the big picture is done. I make lots of lists, so that I can shut my mind down at the end of the day and when I don't make the lists, my mind is in constant spin at night trying not to forget anything! Thanks for posting this, it's sometimes hard to remember that I'm not the only one in my isolated-thought world!

I find that like Regeneration- lists keep me sane- as do filing ideas in folders for clients- so I have them at my fingertips- do a lot of pinning and checking out ideas on Houzz- great for clients' visualization---also write myself timeline appointments on my calendar so that helps keep things on track- and pad of paper by the side of the bed for the middle of the night thoughts about a project.
