30 Day Creativity Practice
Procrastination for creative endeavors can be sneaky.

We might say that we don't have enough time, while the subtext actually is: "I won't be good at it which will somehow prove I lack talent" or "I don't enjoy doing something I'm not good at from the start." Some people might have a leg up on creativity depending on any number of factors, but talent comes from practice.

I created this doc because - no surprise here - I struggle with this constantly. I have a long bucket-list of creative endeavors, but when I have free time I tend to fall back on activities within my comfort zone. (For me, that's crocheting the same patterns while binging Netflix. 💁)

So let's say you have 20 minutes a day that you can spare to learning a new skill. Follow these steps in order to get this set up!

1️⃣ What do you want to learn? (List as many things as you'd like.)
