Daydreaming and being out in the world is needed for creativity. It is part of life as a whole.
The work beckons and always will. If it is the true calling and you have no choice then that urge always exists.
The back of your mind will always be occupied, and you remind yourself that you could be doing more.
But there does come a point of diminishing returns.
That’s when time away is needed, and when you return the motivation is stronger and clearer than it was before.
