Sometimes You Need a Big Bowl of Pasta and Some Rest

I think it's safe to say that yesterday's photo isn't my best photo to date. I'm disappointed with how it turned out, but also do admit, that I could've made a more elaborate photography set up. Here, I focused more on cooking and styling rather than taking photographs because, to be quite honest, I was hungry and a tad lazy.

My learning lesson from yesterday is that I need to rest up. Yesterday desperately called for my hair tied up and pajamas glued on, but I ignored what my body needed. This is another data point for the books to help me better explore what I like to do, when I like to do it, and what I can get good at. 

My experience also reminded me of Adam Grant's book Originals. He writes, "Simonton finds that on average, creative geniuses weren’t qualitatively better in their fields than their peers. They simply produced a greater volume of work, which gave them more variation and a higher chance of originality. 'The odds of producing an influential or successful idea,' Simonton notes, are 'a positive function of the total number of ideas generated.'" So hey, my work is not all that bad. I just need to keep creating through intentional practice.

The photo included in this post has a very easy-to-make and comforting low-cal fettuccine alfredo recipe
