Deadlines Can Bite

Checking the time for a deadline
By Fiifi Dzansi

Deadlines are dreadful.

We dread them for two reasons:
Suddenly, we must come to the end of a project we’ve grown so much affinity for.
Tight deadlines inject our veins with so much stress.

To deal with the stress associated with very tight deadlines, try to avoid them. At least for the most part of your life. Also, make it a point to complete projects ahead of the deadline. So they don’t sneak up on you. Work a little faster than usual.

Why Be Conscious Of Your Mental Health As A Creative

A Creative with Mental Health problems

Life is tough on everyone. Creatives have their fair share of it. Designers are constantly thinking of how to find solutions to challenges in the world. Musicians must keep the entertainment going.

So far as people get what they want, they rarely would wake up and ask: “How are you today?”

The mind is where all our actions originate from. When we take care of it, our creativity can flow freely.

Listen to my maiden edition of the Mentally Creative podcast. On the podcast, I discussed how to handle some things (Deadlines, Striving for originality, Criticism and Rejection) that can weigh heavily on us. And if not well managed can affect our mental health.
