This is still the hardest thing.
Working by yourself, at home, on a project where you are manager and producer, without any clients, and not earning money … is very difficult.
I’ve just done 1 day’s payed work. During this one day’s payed work I think I was about twice as productive as I am whilst working on Ambisonia. Why?
Here are some theories:
- I wanted to hurry up and complete the work so that I could go back to working on Ambisonia,
- The deliverables were well defined so there’s little potential for time-wasted pontificating,
- I wasn’t ‘manageing’ the effort, so there was no possibility to question and restructure as I was working.
I think that’s the problem. When you produce _and_ manage you tend to constantly question and restructure the deliverables according to what you know is and isn’t important. I’d say this is an advantage _and_ a disadvantage.
How can I overcome this?
