And what might your goal be for the new year? I admit I have multiple goals. I'm a good goal maker. Not such a good goal achiever. This year I intend to actually achieve some of my goals.
I say that every year.
This year will be different.
I say that every year also.
But seriously, I've already made some progress toward one.
For the past two years my goal has been to get some of my illustration work onto a platform that will allow it to be bought. I'm calling it: "Monetize my Art." A catchy little phrase. You'll never see this one on Wheel of Fortune. Then again, maybe you will; they have some really odd "phrases" .... but I digress (and also I admit what we do in the evening).
But on Sundays we hike. Practically every Sunday we head out to some of the great trails in the Pacific Northwest. And so of course I have tons of beautiful photos. I've started drawing them, digitally with vector art. I think they're quite lovely. They take forever and thus I've only actually completed one. But I have two more nearing completion. AND I have set up an account at ArtPal, a website that lets you show your art and then if people want to purchase it they can do it through the site. They'll print-on-demand for you and mail it also. So I actually have one of my drawings up there now.
Part of one goal achieved.
My other major goal is to sign up with an online bookkeeping program to make keeping track of my income and outcome and time spent etc. easier, for me and my accountant. I'm using FreshBooks which seems very clean and easy and even fun. I've been doing it for two weeks now and so it has become a habit. A good habit.
So there you have it: two goals underway!
