Well it’s been a fantastic year here at dPS, we hope you’ve had a good one too.
The New Year is upon us and it’s a time to reflect on the past 12 months, and look forward to the next 12.
So I’m curious, do you make goals for the new year? I’m not into making resolutions myself, I think they’re often too shallow, and most people make rash ones, that they don’t keep more than a few days. The reason is they don’t have a plan to go with them.
Goal + A plan of Action = Success
So tell me, in the comments below:
- What are your photography goals for 2016?
- What will you do (action plan) to move yourself closer to achieving them?
My own personal goals this year are around balance and fitness/health. So I’ve already joined a gym and have started going three times a week or more. For my photography goals, my big one is (I’m putting this out there so I actually do it and you guys can hold me to it):
- GOAL: Make a book of my Grandmother’s images (have had the photos for two years) to give to her and my family members (she’s 96 and want to do this while she’s still here and has eyesight, which is failing her).
- ACTION PLAN: Take 30 minutes each week to work on this project (cull images, edit them in Lightroom, and design and order the Blurb book).
Okay, it’s your turn. What is your one big goal and your action plan?
PS – a future goal is to spend New Year’s in Singapore (I’ve been there over Christmas but didn’t quite make it to the 31st). Sure looks like they have an amazing fireworks display based on the two images above!
