Creativity vs. Exactness

April 26, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

So, those of you who know me personally know that I work with numbers for a living. A numbers job requires exactness at every turn. And, in order to maintain those skills, it's hard to allow myself to wander outside of the confines of those rules for fear of not staying sharp.

KNOCK KNOCK. It's creativity at the door. Dammit, I forgot they were coming over.

Well, isn't this awkward? Creativity is definitely a friend with which I would love to spend hours and hours--hell, days and days. However, I find it difficult to leave behind the demeanor I had to maintain during my time with Exactness. It's like painting the walls a dull gray in the morning, finally finishing in time to do what's required of me, only to have creativity arrive at my door, ready to come in and paint the walls neon.

It's exhausting, and I don't feel fully present with either entity.
