Last night I went through my nightly ritual of sitting up in bed with my iPad catching up on my favourite blogs via Flipboard (iPad/Android users – if you don’t have this app you should, it is seriously the best). One of my favourite blogs is from Jasmine Star, wedding photographer extraordinaire. Her recent post about goals struck a cord – I’m not a New Years resolution kind of girl, but her take on it really made sense.
She talks about how its easy to set goals, but you also need to think about what you need to do to accomplish those goals, which is not so easy. So she has created 2 lists: Dreams & Do’s.
This got me to thinking about my Dreams and Do’s for 2014 – what do I want to achieve and how do I need to go about it.
Like most business owners, a big Dream on my list is finding a good work/family balance. For me this will be scheduling times to work on the business that doesn’t interfere with time with my son (which for me is now at 9.30am while he is still sleeping – miracle!!). The tricky part is this is not my main job, so the window of time gets smaller.
Another Dream that has already been done is my new website – only a few days into 2014 with a big tick is extremely satisfying!
What are your Dreams for the year, and what are you going to Do about them?
