Did another year just rush past you without leaving any concrete signs of your progress?
Are you wondering what you accomplished or how far you have come in 2013?
If your answer is YES, then consider using this week to set some personal goals for 2014.
Your pottery life is a journey and like any other journey, it needs a map or plan of some kind to get you to your destination. You cannot just wander North and hope to hit Alaska.
The simple act of writing down what you want to do makes the odds of success JUMP. Let's face it, it you cannot even write down what you want, what are the odds you will do the rest of the work needed to accomplish it?
Just to ensure your success, make item #1 on the list ... "Make a list of goals".
Don't set traps for yourself by overloading this list.
Make sure the items are do-able in your real life.
Break them down to baby steps which are more easily accomplished than a huge giant step.
Post the list of goals in a place you see every day.
Use a big magic marker to cross out items as you finish them.
Your Goals don't have to involve impossible tasks, expenditures of cash or quantum leaps in abilities. A few steps forward might do quite nicely.
KISS ... Keep It Simple and Succeed.
