Chasing Creative

S4 E4: How We Waste Extra Time

Episode Summary

We’ve all done it: said we had no time to get everything done, let alone do something creative. Sometimes, that’s true. And other times, we need to take a look at how we are actually spending those little moments throughout the day and ask ourselves if not having enough time is the issue, or if we are maybe just wasting a little more than we think. Ashley and Abbie fess up on what they spend their “extra” time on - and what they should be doing instead.
