Captains Log: 010 – Timers are helping me

Things are still crazy here in 2020, the election still has people anxious. Personally, I have kept my head down and stayed in doors since theres nothing to do.

The current covid situation has given me time to draw more, and trust me when I say I could use the practice. Its hard to set time aside normally for such things, but I always forget how much you can actually get done in a short amount of time. Even if I set a timer for 5 min, 10 min, 20 min, and just go I’m always surprised how much I can accomplish.

Utilizing timers is something I have found to be very beneficial to me, sometimes I think of tasks as taking longer than they actually do, I think “aw man I gotta write this blog, thats gonna take hours” which is absurd, cuz it doesn’t take that long, I mean it could but you get my drift. Never the less, I have found these absurd thoughts are perhaps my excuse to procrastinate. So I have found Its much easier, for me at least, it seems, to set small pockets of time aside and set the timer. I find if I set a 5 min timer and just write away for a blog I almost have the thing done, then I’m like shit, just another 5 mins.

It gives me a different more realistic time management and understanding for these tasks. Just something I wanted to share, im always doing 100 tasks at once, so some times its nice to dedicate small amounts of time to certain tasks so you can be sure everything that needs to be done is getting done.

Not much is new on the site here. I have launched new product in my dopely threaded store, it would be dope of you to go and buy some drip lol.

Make sure to follow the YouTube, im always adding content there. Been working on a lot of video content, for myself and others, love to get your thoughts on it!

Still working away on all my brands, working on getting artist connect back up and running, but it takes a lot of work, but its something I really believe in, so im getting it going, should be back up very soon.

Thanks for checking in fam, hope you all are well.

2020 IS A BUST

008

I just realized there hasn’t been a new post on here for a while, and when I come to check when the last CAPTAINS LOG I typed out was at the beginning of 2020, and my oh my, how much optimism I had for this year.

By now, we all know this year is a bust. Dont get me wrong, its perfect for me, I work from home anyway, but still, everything cancelled and shutdown, it really blows.

Ive pretty much wrapped up this whole year as a bust.

But again, I suppose its nice to have this time to hunker down and get shit done on my super long checklist.

Ive been slowly and steadily upgrading my studio, once the next few items come in ill be done with the upgrades for this year so I will make a 2021 Studio Walkthrough video even though the year isn’t over.

I haven’t been able to crank out many EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING cuz as we have stated everything is closed down! It really sucks, I want some food!! I will be updating the EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING homepage very soon here…

More content is constantly coming to the YouTube channel, make sure you are following me there!

Ive updated a few pages around here, my twitch portfolio for one, go check it out!

In the meantime, im working on all my content, and my sites, including this one, getting ready to revamp ARTIST CONNECT, cant wait!

Stay Tuned,

Evan Beale
