Daily Routines

Still mulling over the subject of organisation, I've been thinking about changing my working routines lately - specifically renting a studio and going out to work in it, rather than working at home. There are pros and cons, but I'm ready for a change and I want to disentangle my home and work lives.

I'm quite fascinated by how creative people manage the work/life balance. I came upon this the Daily Routines blog
through Lateral Action. Just like it says on the tin, it details famous people's routines. Flaubert had the right idea - 'A man of nocturnal habits, [he] usually awoke at 10 a.m. and announced the event with his bell cord. Only then did people dare speak above a whisper.'

Oh I need to get organised! I really do. I would love to be calm and serene with no last-minute panics and late-night working. I'm thinking this Little Otsu journal might help. It's dateless, so if I forget to write in it for a while I'm not wasting paper either (how's that for giving up before you start).

And it's pretty too.
