Last February, I set some goals. In May and June, I planned how long it would take to finish some projects. By September, my plans were totally derailed!
I tried too hard to stay on my plan and when I stalled, I was unable to jump start myself again. This year, my goals are listed in bold below.
Choose a word and use it to help me meet my goals.
This is the third year I've chosen a word. This year, I'll see it in the studio every day and I've written it on the front of my journal to help me stay on track.
My previous years' words were:
This year, I'm going to focus my energy; write more realistic work plans and then meet those deadlines!
Finish these on going projects:
Three past book club projects:
I also want to finish my stitch book.
I want to buy an accuquilt die and make a project with it. I'm considering this die
I have many more On Going Projects. Rather than list all of them, I'm choosing to focus on these six. I have more success when I post my plans. Perhaps, if I possessed better project planning skills, I would have better success with project management! I do plan to set a work schedule; but, this year, my plan is to set smaller intermediate goals. If I encounter a stall, my plan is to work a little on the stall each day until I'm unstuck. I also plan to work on another project so that I end the day with forward progress. . .somewhere in my quilting world!
Continue to make progress on my current projects.
Start new projects.
Sew another 50 yards from my stash.
Try new to me techniques like paints, crayons and color pencils on fabrics.
Participate in the 6x60 guild challenge.
Enter four quilts in our guild's quilt show.
Sew projects with the grands.
Now that I have set these ten goals, my next step is to complete a work plan with wiggle room for success!
Do you set annual goals for yourself? Do you choose a word for the year? If so, please share one of your goals in the comments. Remember, I LOVE receiving comments!
Happy New Year!!!
