I’m not normally one for New Year’s resolutions. I mean, if I tried to give up chocolate or gin or going to bed at 8.30 I’d be setting myself up to fail. So instead of thinking of resolutions as tackling something in my life that I’m not proud of, I decided instead to focus on my goals. What I want, how to achieve it, and why it matters to me. I’m trying to frame my resolutions in a positive way – “be more of this” rather than “do this less often”, which is all in the name of goal-digging.

I recently did Jenna Kutcher‘s online marketing course for photographers and listening to her podcast, Goal Digger. Her approach is really all about working out and achieving your goals, so this has been on my mind a lot lately.

  1. Start being fair to myself. It’s one of less appealing traits – I can be very self-critical. It’s overblown, negative, and unattractive, so if I can get away from that I’ll be happier and calmer.
  2. Say yes more often. Because it pays off, even if it’s scary and hard work.
  3. Find the right balance between working and playing. I think everyone feels this way at times, and I’m a work to live kind of person.
  4. Look after my body. 8 hours a night. Make up off before bed. Eat less, move more. It’s a gift to myself. This may involve a bit of trail running.
  5. Travel. I love the UK, and the particular bit I live in, but I’d love to get out there a little more.

  1. Make photography my living. This is the all important goal. To create a business I can sustain and that sustains me.
  2. Weddings, weddings, weddings are my focus for 2017.
  3. Take and share a new photo every day in a 365 Project.
  4. Finish my diploma and seek new training. I figure the more I can learn the better I can be.
  5. Be a better landscape photographer! Because it’s such a weak point for me.
