    How do you do it?

    I have so many creative endeavours I want to immerse myself in but where would I ever find the time?

    you have to make time...Its hard, and I struggle with this because my creative endevors have almost become full time jobs! Two online businesses and writing.

    what works the best is to make a schedule for yourself...but mostly when the desire to create hits you, just do it!

    Sigh...

    Yes. I feel the same way. I about had a meltdown last night because at 12 am I still hadn't finished my laundry, finished doing my dishes, OR started packing for my new place..
    I don't even have time to do the things I don't want to do!

    How busy are you? Do you work too much or otherwise obligate yourself to others too much?

    I'm really busy at the moment but we have a new baby so that's expected but it was like this before the baby. I work 8 hours and have a 1 hr commute either side of that.

    I think my main problem is when I do like to create, I like to mull things over and take my time and get inspired slowly.

    I just need to become rich, then I can do what I like.

    As an admirer of my wife I have to say that Te can make a big difference. Staying organized is one of the best ways to squeak out the time you need.
    Getting in the habit of having daily checklists in a notebook (or PDA/phone) can help you get more things done more rapidly, and will also train your mind to schedule the time for your hobbies.
