Happy New Year! Yes, this is a bit late, but the year has been crazy to start. With my day job expanding to the general craziness of a a calendar change, I’ve had a lot going on.
Every year, I make goals for myself to complete creatively. I started doing this when I was just making films back in the early aughts, and I do so now with my novels.
I don’t like resolutions because that seems to imply subconsciously or not, that they won’t be completed. Goals, however, give me something to strive more and measure against.
I have been listening to Jim Kwik, a man who helps people increase their memory and get better at speed reading. One of his mantras when it comes to goals, they need to be SMART: Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic and Time-based. I adjust my goals to this mantra.
So, without further ado, here are my goals:
-Publish two novels this year (one is coming soon!)
-Merge my book publishing arm and filmmaking group under one umbrella
-Complete one draft of two different screenplay stories
-Finish at least one day of production on my webseries..
I plan on sharing my progress here and on social media. I would leave to hear from all of you as well: what are some of your goals for 2023?
