Fiction, photography, and the creative process, fuelled by coffee and endless podcasts.
It’s time to check in on the progress I’ve been making with my work/life reboot.
In general, it hasn’t been a bad week… even if I’ve had a few days in a row that have felt like I completely stalled on all the progress I’d been making. Really, that’s why these regular updates are helpful for me: they make me sit down and think about each of my individual goals, and honestly assess how I’ve been doing. It’s so easy to let a few bad days discourage me (or to get complacent after a few particularly good days), but when I look at the week as a whole… it’s good. I like the progress I’m seeing.
A quick recap: a little over a week ago, I decided that I needed to get out of the creative and productive rut I’ve fallen into over the past few months. And it would be good if I could prevent myself from going down a similar path in the future.
So I’ve set some goals for the rest of the year, to build a solid foundation for myself and my long-term goals going into 2019.
I’m going to check in with these goals every week. I still haven’t quite decided what form these check-ins are going to take (and they’re not all going to be on Thursdays, mostly because a lot of my regular posts tend to fall around the weekend). But for now, one week in, I’m just going to look at each of those goals, and the progress I’m making (or not).
Postcards features exclusive updates and sneak peeks, special announcements, and occasional surprises.
We’re all busy, and we all get too much email, so I only send out two issues a month: on the 7th, I focus on photography, and on the 21st, I focus on writing. You can choose to receive updates on one or both of those topics, depending on what you’re interested in, and update your preferences at any time.
