(fiction = imaginary/stories and non-fiction = fact/history, just saying)
I think a lot of what he says really parallels what is necessary thinking for any dream or goal. Here’s part of the last post – an encouragement:
1) do a month in photos (take a picture of each project being worked on every day/day of the week it’s scheduled to be worked on)
*I don't know what's going on w/ Blogger- the spaces are weird and I've corrected them several times in the editing room...anyway, you can see it normally here: PDF of my Overal Agenda Using Targets (contains really cute plaid bullets)
*Each month has a designated folder to hold information and those things pertaining to the goals set. The folders can be decorated with a collage on the cover related to the topic it covers, and inside is a calendar - or the calendar can be on the cover (I like to add a few graphics or a fun font).
This is how you fill up your monthly calendars with goals:
Under the acorn targets, is a list of photographic journaling goals. Each of the numbered items is really part of one goal – simply to take photo evidence of project progress or process. It’s a way of holding myself accountable – a motivation to get to it and not quit. I’ll end up with something to share with others, as well as an inspirational calendar for myself, should I really wish to create one. (Of course I will).
Sometimes I start a painting and don’t paint on it for a week. It doesn’t matter at all, I just keep the photos organized and accessible in one place for this kind of documentation when the painting/paintings is/are done. (I might work on more than one at a time).
I traded a painting for him - although I gave him back to his previous owner, I didn't take back the painting, because it was as much the previous owner's non-disclosure as my own fault- and after almost 2 years, I loved Cherihuka and was grateful for our time together, even if he could never be ridden:
Or it might be fun to do a time-lapse video... fast-motion is a bit comedic. (Well you and I can both just forget that!)
That definitely could use a calendar though. First make time to define what style I want to try sewing. Then schedule a day to find patterns, then a day dedicated to finding materials, and a day to purchase needed items (buttons?), then a day to cut material, and a day to start sewing, etc...
