Everyone likes to make lists, right? I do, from time to time. Everything ranging from groceries (I now keep a running note on my iPhone where I update frequently purchased staples with asterisks) to tasks and beyond.
Then there are the end-of-year book and movie lists that are always fun and frustrating to read and inspire me to make my own.
I recently came across this listicle, "The 5 Most Important Self Evaluation Lists," which inspired me to create my own interpretation. I'd like to focus less on end-of-year achievements and try to keep my list current—more a goals / inspiration / aspiration list:What about you? Inspired to make a list of your own? Use these? Use the 5? Now's as good a time as any to get started
- Aspirations. What are you working on to improve? What can you change? If you can't change it, can you forget about it and move on, accept it, incorporate it somehow?
- Getting better all the time. The things that are working—keep it up! Keep learning, keep reading, keep your eyes open.
- Inspiration. What makes you happy, feeds your soul? Look at art more. Keep in touch with friends, swap ideas—even sharing theories on silly television shows counts ; )
- Plans. Without too much pressure, continue to push yourself towards goals for your art, your family, your life.
