This August I'm trying something new. Obviously, I'm always working on teaching, freelance illustration, or gallery work, but the truth is that I do alternate between the three, sometimes days (or weeks) separating the "shifts". This Fall, I hope to do one thing each workday (Monday-Friday) focusing on my freelance work in order to really push that area of my life. This includes working on my new website, creating a portfolio piece, sending mailers, or just buying stamps. I'm calling it Operation One Thing A Day, or Operation OTAD for short. I don't have a particular goal, just to stick with this philosophy and hope that I see big pay off once Christmas rolls around (for the sake of the "experiment", let's say Mid December is when I'll look back and reflect on my progress).
I invite you, dear reader, to join me no matter what your objective is. You could even try one thing a week (OTAW??) if that fits your lifestyle better. Today my goal is to work on my new mailers. Stay tuned, because I hope to be posting regularly.
ooh good idea! I hope it works out for you!ReplyDelete
thank you for your kind words!ReplyDelete
but I must say... I love love LOVE your work.
it's inspiring (and very motivating) to see someone living their passion.
I've been striving to be more productive and I think this idea of yours that you are experimenting with is fantastic! I just just might have to try it out myself :)
