004 Organization & Development

This week I was feeling burnt out from writing, so I decided to work on fun, creative stuff instead. I share some insights into how I organize my tasks so that I can be flexible and work on the right tasks at the right time. The big thing is that I use a bullet journal, and I do a weekly brain dump of all my tasks spread out so I can scan through them easily. I make sure to divide big tasks into small tasks that are easily manageable/not overwhelming and ideally take less than 30 minutes to accomplish.

Yes, I realize many places list 6 types, but participatory is basically the same as reflexive, and experimental is basically the same as poetic. Keep it simple, know what I mean?

Here is a very academic discussion of representation, but I think that Kirsten Johnson’s film Cameraperson will help you understand the issue more closely.
