Totally uninspired....
show user profile  paulw
Hi All,

i have reached a point where i am totally uninspired to do any work. been a few months now with no insperation at all. think its down to my futile attempt at getting a job, as in not getting anywhere fast. so its getting me down a bit.

i know others have been in this situation before, but i can't seem to shake it...

im at a loss, never felt like this ever...anyone have any words of wisdom

thx

well where did you get your inspiration from normally?

- Listen to music, try new tunes you never heard
- Look at books with alot of (design)pictures/ or look at pics at photography sites etc etc
- Travel (far if possible) realy this rocks, visit new places etc.
- Talk to new people, ask opinions etc etc (msn, icq hi5.com, hyves etc)
- Watch movies, but be open for them, so watch them at 3 in the morning, while drinking alot of coffee/coke so you dont wanna sleep... and with ALL lights off..
also watch movies like:
Amelie
Une longe dimanche
Requiem for a dream
trainspotting
la haine
sin city
pi

all movies which are a tad different from normal hollywood movies (dont watch them!)

- Read books, for creative inspiration purposes: fictional books.

If I know more, then I add to these :)

Pull yourself together, its all psycological....weve all been there, the trick is not to stop moving, keep doing something, work on something even if you're not happy with it, the moment you stand still is when you're fucked.

Trust me there are people less deserving than you working in the industry, what these people have is persistence and hard work. Organise yourself, plan things out, keep yourself busy working towards your goal, even in small ways. Its like walking a tightrope, the trick is not to look down.
