Goals are like a map. You get out the map, plot your journey and off you go, hoping to reach the place you intended to go. Sometimes you end up in a different place and that's okay. With art, things have a way of evolving on their own journey.
Once I set a goal, I then think about the steps I need to take to get me there. After all, a goal with no action is just a word.
So here we go:
- Finish my new doll costume pattern
- Make a fox hound to go with my fox figure
- Finish my Steampunk journal
- Start my Spring journal
- Get 500 more followers on my blog
- Write for other blogs
You see? Goals are the start of the journey; the map. Now I will fill in the map, with a few steps towards those goals. It was Confucius who said "A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step."
What are your goals for your creative self?
