Daily Posting: Pushing Creative Boundaries or a Recipe for Burnout?

burnout

 

Posting diverse daily content has been something that I’ve tried to achieve in 2017, because I though it would push me to create something daily. If you haven’t already noticed, I have an informal posting schedule that I’ve created to keep myself accountable with posting on social media. I know that it sounds ridiculous, but I work better when I have deadlines for myself. In short, I post four Instagram photos, two short Instagram videos, one blog post that I usually post at the beginning of the week (either on Tuesday or Wednesday) and one YouTube video (usually posted on Thursdays) each week. For others, this may not seem like much, but for someone who has a full time job, this schedule becomes a bit more absurd considering that at some point, I do need to sleep. At the beginning of the year, I thought this schedule would push my creative boundaries, but now that we’re half way through the year, I feel exhausted and creatively drained. I guess you could call it burnout.

Hi! It’s been a while since you’ve probably read a blog post written by me (Job) but I definitely have a good excuse. As you’re probably noticed, I’ve been wrapped up in getting a new Everyday Creators interview up on the blog every Tuesday that I’ve totally neglected writing about any other topics. Today, I wanted to talk about the bullet journaling system (also known as the or BUJO system) and my experience with using this productivity system in my everyday life.
