It is that time of year when we start reviewing the one that has been and planning for the one ahead.
I will share some more posts on both of these later but thought others might find these recent finds of mine useful.
- I shared this on twitter last week but in case you missed it. I am working through Susannah Conway’s workbook for 2014. It is a guide on evaluating the last year and working on plans for the new year to help you achieve the things you want (and work out what it is you want!).
- Through a serious of internet clicking I cam across Zen Habits by Leo Babauta. I’ve been finding it really hard to get motivated and start working towards goals (although he doesn’t believe in goals). He writes about happiness, productivity, contentment, creating good habits, gratitude and mindful living. Some things we can all aspire to.
I sway between making resolutions and not. When I do I normally forget about them and don’t actually ‘achieve’ them anyway but often unexpected loveliness comes along which makes life pretty darn good. I suppose I am kind of like a jellyfish in this respect. However, with the move I have felt like my life that was slowly plodding along towards a life of photographic greatness (dream big right?) has been kind of derailed and a new approach needs to be taken. Having floundered about for over six weeks now (can’t believe I have been here so long already) I am now focussing on planning and prepping for how I will make photographic greatness happen in the new year in a new country where I don’t speak the language…
Do you have a process for this time of year? Or any advice?
