Typically in my life, I take on a lot at one time because I have little patience and a lotta interests. For the remaining months of 2018 and hopefully into 2019, I’m going to attempt to take that down a notch.
…a small notch.
The first step, I think, is to set manageable, attainable, yet successful goals—meaning ones that I know I can achieve, but that still push me a good amount towards my dreams.
The biggest goal is to post here once a week (aka here’s number one). Because I work full time, I’m not giving near enough time to my posts when I do multiple in one week. Clearly, I’ve burnt myself out already, as I’ve lacked consistent posts the last few months.
My next goal is to incorporate videos. I don’t necessarily plan on becoming a “Youtuber”, but I desperately want to improve not only my video editing skills, but also my conceptualizing. I’m always thinking, creating in my mind, but I sometimes have trouble translating it over and it’s honestly from lack of practice.
This next goal meshes together video and photo. I want to work on one big photography project a month, adding along side a video (either behind the scenes or as the project). Hint for this month’s—Thanksgiving. 🙂
Lastly (because four is an awesome number) is to get my lazy ass out of bed in the morning and work on my manuscript that’s been collecting dust since the summer…
…not happy about how I’ve left it hanging, but with recently renewed anger about my financial situation and jobs, it’s time to get back to work. I can do this for myself.
Yay! I’m excited for the next couple months (even though it’s cold now), but unfortunately I’m in a constant pull between being optimistic and depressed. I had decided this would be the place to be honest with myself about my struggles, but I’m so used to ignoring them and that is why this blog has lost its path.
Luckily, I’m stubborn, so a hop, skip, and jump back onto the path we go!
What are some of your end of year goals? Why wait for the new year for a resolution when you can start now?
