How do you know if something is holding you back? (and with something I most likely mean yourself and lack of selfconfidence) You have ideas you wanna explore but "now is not the right time" and there is allways good reasons for why that is and you end up not doing it at all.

 

Let's have a concrete example:

When you feel like going to the kitchen and take some cooking pots out and bang on them and record the rythmic noice and do stuff with it. But it's the middle of the night and you have neighbours. When you wake up next day you are no longer in the mood or lost the "feel" of what you wanted to achive.

 

Does this impulses subconsciously come on a bad time so you can make excuses not to follow them because something is holding you back or does your creative schedule simply just not fit into the reality while living in an apartment?

 

Yes I am a night owl. Allways have been able to think better at night when it's dark, quiet and peaceful. (And watching the sunrise while brushing my teeth before I go to bed is almost better than meditating.) But I can't help wondering if there is more to it.

 

Any thoughts about this? Or thoughts about anything similar to this? Or any examples of you own? 

 

(Oh. Look. New cute smile. I gotta use it even though it's out of contexts.  birthday_balloonHappy birthday ..ehm.. everybody that ..uhm.. have a birthday? exactly)

Try banging on cardboard boxes instead and be a cardboard box musician. http://www.myspace.com/acardbo.....dbox/music

I have the same problem and have determined that it's a form of procrastination - putting off what will potentially be a failure eliminates that chance of failure. If we don't try, we can't fail. It's a huge problem for someone of my temperament yell

Overcoming that instinct to procrastinate is very hard, but almost always rewarding.

 

Of course, I don't live in an apartment, so noise is not a factor...wink

You have to get out of the apartment and  buy a house out in the country all by yourself. LOL

Seriously though, it might be ideal for you to get an electric fiddle. Didn't you have one already? Play with headphones. Or maybe your are referring more to banging pots???

I hope you can channel your creativity some day, DIY.
