Every year I list a set of goals I would like to accomplish in the New Year and every year I fail to accomplish any...
This year I am determined to actually keep up with the goals I set at the beginning of the year. My goals overall are pretty much the same every year but I think my main issue is I try to do too much.
Goals for 2015
1. Set work hours & stick to them.
I've never set work hours because since I'm single with no kids I don't have a ton of other things I need to do. So I spend most of the day working on designing or making things to sell and I've noticed I haven't been able to knit or crochet just for fun in a really long time. Its always business related crocheting and I have to say I really miss knitting! There are so many projects I want to make for myself and next year I will do so.
2. Get Organized and Stay Organized
This is one of those I goals I have every year and I never follow through. I'm already working on setting a schedule so I can stay organized. I'm going to really try this year because my main issues are I can never find what I'm looking for and I don't even know what I have anymore. I even have a plan to blog about my progress on Mondays!
3. Use Stash Yarn
This is another one of those I have every year. I actually came up with a solution that I hope will work out. I'm planning on taking inventory at the beginning of 2015 so I know how much yarn I have to work with. My Ravelry stash page needs a serious update so I'll keep up with it that way. Then I will look for patterns to use with the yarn that I have available instead of looking for patterns that I need to buy yarn to make.
4. Don't set high expectations.
I have a tendency of wanting to do too much. Last year in my goals I had make 1 shawl a month, release 2 new patterns a month, and add at least 5 new items to Etsy shop a month. I don't know what I was thinking! How am I supposed to do all that in only 1 month? I think I need to be more realistic on what I can actually do in a month and take it slow. Maybe I can try to release at least 1 pattern and month and try to add 1 new item a week to my Etsy shop. It seems more possible to accomplish that. If I am able to do more than that, great, if not that's okay too.
That's only 4 reasonable goals next year. Hopefully I can follow through.
Do you have any goals you want to accomplish in the new year?
Thanks for stopping by!
