Planning The Revolution (viva!)
I have no idea where the whole revolution thing comes into play here. I get dangerous when you put a metaphor into my untrained hands. But I’ve been itching to use my image of Che with the Apple logo, so I did. Call it artistic license.
I’m back to the idea of intentionality and a reminder to be pro-active. If you’re a pro this applies to every aspect of your business, if you’re an amateur you still need to be intentional about learning your craft.
What new series will you shoot for your portfolio this year, and when? What new skills will you learn, and how? What new business, marketing, or accounting practices will you adopt and when? What influences or heroes will you connect with and how?
Key to setting goals is not only planning the goal itself, but breaking it down into steps – easily managed tasks that together accomplish the greater goal. Take some time today to set some goals, then break them down and get to it. Because Apple Che says so.
