So... the call for clarity and goal making HAS been heard and SHALL be answered.
At least I'll give it a start (before I fall asleep at my desk.)
|Oh, yeah. I got a hair cut! (Don't worry, conservative friends, it doesn't always look this crazy.)|
Question: What am I doing?
Answer: I am self employed in various creative endeavors (namely photography and acting) so I don't go crazy in a cubicle and suffer Death by Office. I am exercising my artistic side daily while serving others, preserving priceless memories and doing my darnedest to make them look gooooood. (Throw in an "Awhriiight" a la Mitch Hedburg.)
Guess that pretty much answers the "why" part, too.
Question: Uh. (Long pause.)
Answer: Ah. I don't need a question to figure out my answer. My answer to this whole, "What are my goals" is this: to continue what I'm doing and keep getting better at it in all aspects. More efficient, creative, customer service oriented, upping the quality of everything (that 5% I talked about last time,) while creating more time for family and myself.
Someday I'll sew again, read (and finish) books, bake, have coffee dates, twiddle my thumbs and wonder what I should do that day. For now, though, I am stinkin' blessed to be inundated with work and have the ability to do it. Everyday I learn something new, try different techniques, look into various options. I get to grow and no one can make me stop developing, creating and trying.
And, gosh darn it, people like my work. And when I make them happy, it makes me happy.
All right motivational and business guru's, I answered my questions.
And I'm doing what I love.
