Kicking 4 the Goal(s)!

I want to talk about goals AGAIN...

It's always good to have goals... I think ... right? haha just kidding! OF COURSE it is good to have goals! When it comes to my life have use mini goals that if I hit my mark, collectively lead to a bigger goal being accomplished as a pleasant side effect.

For my small business ventures, I use a combination of "core goals" and sprinkle them with "mini goals" every now and then...

I sat down today to shore up my core goals - my last blog post (Running for The Finish Line, to read click HERE) I touched more on what would be better classified as "mini goals" or at best core goal objectives, today I wanted to make sure my core goals were on point as well.

Running For the Finish Line

Life seems to throw blocks in my way, big heavy gusts of wind that like to knock me on my ass... so much fun right??? NOT!

I am going to put my foot down (but not too heavy because my toe hurts from cracking on the hallway corner just a little big ago) and set some goals for the next 30 days, 3 goals to be exact! The deadline for these "goals" will be May 5, 2016. Here they are:

I Think There For I am (an Artisan)

Sometimes when I am working I think about the saying "I think therefore I am" by Descartes - it seems odd to think about philosophical proof when one is crafting but in my situation (and for others like me) I don't think it is as out of the realm as some may think.

In a nutshell "I think therefore I am" deals with existence and what existence is, owing to the thought that the power of what we are is completely within our own control - if a person thinks they are something then simply put they ARE.

I suppose this is a bit deep to apply to my situation but meh... but stay with me while I digress a little more.

Keeping It Organized

Okay I must confess, I may have an unfair advantage in the organizing skills department - it is actually one of the few positives of being a full blown diagnosed OCD control freak!

OCD is a curse and a blessing a I suppose - I get totally out of whack when something is not in the right place and can't not reconcile myself to working until things are put in their right place

That said, having OCD does give me the ability to keep a large amount of supplies organized and easily accessible - a much needed skill when it comes to running a crafting based small business from home that's for sure don't you think?
