What would you do to help your creative career if you had 2 extra hours in the day? What are some things that you know you should be doing, but just never seem to get to? What stuff that’s important, but never urgent? What are you procrastinating on or what do you hate doing or aren’t great at doing?

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney
