Now I don't claim to be a photographer, but I do like photography and admire those with an eye for capturing the world through photos. My goals are to complete each daily challenge, stretch my creativity, and improve my photography skills. Here is the list for January...
I am still working on the sharing aspect of this challenge and hope to set that up this evening. My intent is to share my photos via Twitter and Facebook. Hopefully, this will help me stay accountable to the challenge. (Since starting this blog post yesterday, I did get my first few days of the photo challenge shared out to Twitter and Facebook.)
As for my new words for the year, I have chosen First, One and Challenge.
First - This one is personal to me, but I read a devotional this past year that addressed all the
One - I'm using this word to remind myself of several things.
- Focus on one task at a time
- Move every hour - I need to work on this more at work, because I forget to move from my desk sometimes when I get focused on a project.
- Read one chapter in a nonfiction book each day - While I enjoy reading, nonfiction is not my favorite. I do read blog posts and articles daily, but reading an actual nonfiction book is a challenge for me. I have purchased and been given several over the years and while they all sound intriguing, I just never make it all the way through the book. I get the first couple chapters read and then put it aside. This goal not only seems attainable to myself, but it should help me stay focused; where as reading one nonfiction book a month would be like high school, waiting until the last minute to read my book and stressing over.
- One project at a time - If I'm excited about a project, I want to start it right away, but then I push another project to the side. As a result, I can have multiple projects going at once and don't make the progress to completion like I desire.
on the photo challenge this year, I feel this word is good for me as I progress through this new year. I've noticed lately that I don't always push or challenge myself to try new things, take risks or venture in new areas of growth. Hopefully, this word will help me break that mold and venture outside of my box.
What about you? Do you set new year resolutions for yourself or words of the year? Are you trying a new challenge this year? I'd love to hear your goals and challenges for the new year. Feel free to share them in the comments below.
