Andrea Karg on … Monday Blues
We all know that feeling: Some days your safest bet is staying in bed. But running an ever expanding fashion house like Allude, creative director Andrea Karg does not have that luxury. Find out, how she shows the occasional Monday blues who’s boss.
“My recipe to ward off days when you get up on the wrong side of the bed and are not really motivated? Give yourself a kick in the pants and just keep going. To bury your proverbial head in the sand certainly won’t help, no matter what challenges, stressful meetings or unpleasant phone calls wait for you at the office.
I learned this early on as a kid when I was a competitive figure skater. While the other children and teenagers could sleep in and relax during holidays, I got up at five clock each morning to train on the ice. I still profit from this ability to motivate myself. To go home an hour earlier than usual when you’re suffering from creative block is okay, but to not appear at all is a no-go.”
