Why is routine admin such a problem? Why is gathering information for the annual tax returns such a chore? Why do I end up with bits of paper everywhere? Why do I not just do the things that would make life- and studio time- so much easier… so much more productive… ? What is the problem with proper filing systems and doing routine maintenance? I think it’s the boredom that it seems to lead to… and boredom can be such a killer of creativity. No, not the kind of boredom that might arise from an extended and blissfully uneventful holiday or a rainy day spent inside.. but the trapped boredom of a routine of having to do something that seems to drain all the creative juices.
