Discipline comes into all aspects of your life.What time you wake up. When you go to sleep. What you eat. When you work on your projects. A well disciplined life leads to health and happiness. But sometimes it can feel like neglect to the “in the moment” times. What do you turn down to keep on track with your art. Your creative outlet. How do you feel afterwards?
Animation is really tough on the discipline. It’s so long term. I used to ride those bicycle double century rides, where they are so long, sometimes you just need to concentrate on the road that is directly beneath your feet.
But the decision you make now. Are you still being a good parent? A good husband? Are you being true to yourself. If you wake up earlier can you get more work done before the baby wakes up?
To me, it feels good to be with my wife and kids, but if I”m away from my work too long I get grumpy. It needs to be acknowledged. Given a comfortable place to sit.
Work is coming along well. My animation is improving.
