I know I should probably use the fact that kids half my age are twice as good at…everything as a sort of competitive motivation but that’s never really worked. Im surrounded by people who are younger and more talented than i am and i find it affects my work. I took a course in art because i didn’t suck at it and its pretty much all i can do but now it all just feels like a chore. I really REALLY don’t want to end up like one of those guys that wasted a ton of time and money by shifting courses but I also find it really hard to get ideas and/or get motivated! When i have ideas i don’t have motivation, sometimes its the other way around and sometimes its neither.
I want to know what I could try to push myself forward and get creative ideas. What can i do when im alone to optimize the time? What can I do to perform normally under pressure in a group? What do you do when your’e low on motivation/ideas?
