RABid Posted November 20, 2002 Share Posted November 20, 2002 I think my first job really helped. It was mostly manual labor at a coal company. That job ranged from shoveling coal to analyzing samples in the lab. Most of the time my mind had nothing to do and my imagination kicked in. I did everything from practice songs in my head to contemplate the relationship between sub-atomic and astrological physics. When I got home I was ready to play and ready to create. My current job is mind intensive. Mounds of regulations to study, computer systems to manage, meetings to organize, policies to write. No central area to focus on. Many days I go home in a mind-numb state. The right side is throbbing and the left side is afraid to kick in. I think my current job definitely hurts creativity. I was going to stick in a disclaimer about those who play music as a primary job, but hey, playing all night may affect your creativity. Robert This post edited for speling.
