Retirees’ Creative Reinvention Day 5: Structure can help.

diary-614149_1280

If you want to build more personal innovation into your days, give this article How Following a Schedule Improved My Creativity by Srinivas Rao a look.

Three points that resonated with me:

  • You can rely on consistent effort, but you can’t rely on inspiration.
  • I was able to put less pressure on myself… I can practice and experiment without worrying about someone judging my work.
  • It was easier to find motivation.

I realize that structure and scheduling may not appeal to all retirees, but this is a time to experiment with what works for you. Find the sweet spot–the happy medium–between moderate expectations and enjoying the process.
