One piece of chocolate? A nice soak in the tub? An episode of Project Runway? What kind of little rewards do you look forward to?
Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time at the computer doing stuff no one will see for a while yet. It’s good stuff, and I love the interactive features of the new platform I’m using for my online classes New Age Looping Basics and Cross-Knit Looping. But for now, I have to squint to see tangible results for a day’s labor. This is where one might turn to chocolate.
Instead, I’ve been adding one item every day to my Etsy shop — mostly naturally dyed silk scarves. Sorry, chocolate — no calories in silk. And when what you want is “tangible”, you can’t go wrong with rich, lustrous silk. So at the end of the day, my Etsy shop is the measure I’m using for the sense of accomplishment I crave.
And I love that some of the scarves I sell are used as little rewards for the people who buy them or give them as gifts.
So what do you do when you can’t see what you’ve got done?
