Smack! Smack! Here, Here I challenge you to duel my friend, choose your weapon wisely. I choose the pen, what will you pick? Okay so that might have been my failed attempt to the old dueling rituals, but I am still challenging you. To a creative duel of course! Goals is a passionate ideal that has been instilled in me since I was a child, and they really do help boost up my creative process when I think about it. Ergo my inspiration to get people to take an hour a day to dedicate to creation. Nonetheless, what about the bigger goals that I have, the BIG dreams? You know the age old story of the Tortoise and the Hare? The moral of the story, at least that I got from it, was that you can obtain any goal in life by taking your time to do it correctly. Fast and easy is not always the way to go, in fact its normally not the best way either. Here is my proposal for how to obtain your bigger goals, take your time! Break your much bigger goals to smaller ones first. I set myself up for seven goals a month to complete, each goal works towards a bigger goal that I have for myself personally and towards my artistry.
Why the number seven? Well number is a good number not only because it is considered a lucky number, but also because it is the number of completion. There are seven days of the week, there are seven musical notes on the scale. There are even seven colors in a rainbow, and the list goes on. I say seven is a good number, aside from three, but that’s a different conversation. Okay you don’t have to be into numerology to part take in the seven goals a month program. However it is motivation to move yourself towards your goals in an efficient manner. That may seem a lot, but really it depends on the goals. For example for me a few of my goals concern personal health, from exercising five days a week, and eating right. To creative goals, like writing a certain amount of words daily, to painting small paintings, and/or reading new creative articles to share with you! Here is my impromptu idea for the week: Try it out, create seven creative goals to achieve for the month. You can do it!
