At my job, workflow is everything. I’m defining workflow here as a pre-defined set of steps that you follow in order to complete a project. We have tight deadlines at work, so if there weren’t a clear and straightforward workflow for things we’d fail every day. Even for things like my photography, I had a pretty defined workflow set up that allowed me to be productive. The creativity comes within the limits of the workflow.
I have a couple of projects that have been stalled for a bit – my podcast and my Breathing Room film project website. This weekend I realized that the major problem is that I have no workflow set up. So, really…that’s what I need to focus on. Once I build the workflow, the projects will take care of themselves.
