I have many goals, whether it be short term goals or long term goals. Most of the time I feel like I have too many goals and it seems to be a struggle to manage them all or that there isn't enough time during the day to fit everything in. It can be quite overwhelming. Here's my list, in no real order.
Learn Japanese Rosetta Stone style yo!
~Learn whole new alphabet
~Learn to write in Hiragana/Katakana - eventually Kanji
Draw something every day
Post new piece on dA at least once a week
Post comments on other people's art
Start working on my book.... I started writing it many, many years ago- hit writers block about 2/3rds in, skipped that part and did bits and pieces after my writers block part. All handwritten, needs to be transfered to computer. ><
Remember to eat
Take breaks from staring at the computer all day
Make room for "the things to do list" It can be a very long list of household chores, depending on how long I've procrastinated
So that's just a tid bit of my goals, the rest are every day things like, stop smoking cigs, remember to shower, and general things that would be on my "to do list" - laundry, sweep floors, etc.
But all-in-all, learning Japanese and drawing take up pretty much my whole day. As of right now, I'm currently waiting to be re-employed, so I feel like, once I get back to work, all my goals will crumble. I mean, how will I ever fit it all into one day, lol. I know realistically I should break down my goals into smaller goals, so they are not so overwhelming. Like only spend 30 minutes working on my Japanese and spend only an hour on drawing to have time to do this or that. I believe it's an issue of feeling like I do not have enough time to casually learn Japanese at such a slow pace. I intend on taking vacation to Japan, hopefully for my birthday in the summer, and I would like to be able read and generally understand people and communicate. I feel that it would only be proper for me to know their language instead on relying on them knowing English.
As for the art, obviously it's one of those things that needs to be done everyday. How could I improve if I don't draw everyday? Yes, half the time I end up with a piece that sketchy or unfinished, but I'm trying to retrain myself to complete my pieces. I've found that if I don't continue a piece the next day, I neglect getting back to it.
And the book.. I can't even begin to think of that.. I'm already overwhelmed with the few large goals I have. But I did decide, if I ever get around to getting it on my computer, finishing it up and editing, submit it to one of those book publishers that.. you know if you have an E-reader, you see all those $1.99 short story books or whatnot. Yea.
So that's that.
