“All things are created twice; first mentally; then physically. The key to creativity is to begin with the end in mind, with a vision and a blueprint of the desired result”
Several years ago I read the above quote in Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I remembered it throughout the years, but it wasn’t until I undertook a project that I envisioned and made a reality this week, that the quote really resonated with me. In January of this year, I wrote in my journal that I wanted to create inspirational artwork to decorate my house. I gave myself the deadline of completing this project by April 2017.
Today is April 15, 2017 and I finished the project on April 12th. I created 5 canvas paintings for my living area and 3 for my bathroom to remind me to stay positive. I learned many lessons about moving from conception of an idea to achievement that I want to share with you.
