Since I never plan my New Year’s resolution, I just announce it on Jan 1 st, I decided this year that I need advance planning. I am sure that this is why the resolution never comes to fruition. This year I decided to being a full time artist who supports oneself from their art. Well, just announcing it is one thing, making it happen is another. I just thought I would twitter, facebook, and blog my way to accomplish my resolution. All of those vehicles have a purpose, but without a strategy it just makes me very efficient of learning every iPhone app to keep them all updated. And I don’t have a strategy for that either.
As I sit here planning my strategy for my day job ( I handle $9m in sales) I realized that I would have to start to plan my art career strategy. I have always been successful in my careers, but always for someone else. So tonight instead of working on my sales plan for work, when I am home it is about me.
I guess tomorrow I will not have my strategy ready for work, but I will have one ready for me. At this time in my life, that is more important.
Come this New Year when I announce my resolution I would have laid the groundwork this year, to make next year happen.
