Hello! I’ve decided to start a new quarterly ambitions system for myself and, to help keep myself accountable, I’m going to share it on my blog with all of you. I was going to call these goals but ambitions sound so much more…awesome? I’m not sure but it sounds better, doesn’t it? I hope that along the way I’ll get to inspire others to create and conquer their own ambitions (sounds good, right?) and to get inspired myself. 🙂
It’s not a long list – just five things but it still feels monstrous and scary to me. When I do my next quarterly ambitions I’ll also do an update on how I did with these. Will a fail? Will I be victorious? Who knows! It’s a mystery!
I will keep going with my personal 52 week photo challenge. I’ve been bombarding everyone on Facebook with a picture of each of my four kids every week for the past half year. I’m halfway done with it now and feeling super confident about how much I’ve grown, but I don’t need to get comfortable and forget to keep pushing myself to be better. So my goal is to continue growing.
This one is a bit overwhelming for me. There’s just so many things to do. My mind spins whenever I start thinking about it all. I need to work on my website and portfolio. I need to create a price list. I need to start a Facebook page. I don’t even know where to begin! Taking steps towards opening a photography business is much more realistic for me than actually starting a photography business. I’m being a bit of a weeny with this ambition.
I want to set myself a realistic goal of blogging once a week but I also want to set myself a higher goal of something like three times a week. I’m going to start mixing in helpful posts with the family updates and stories that I already share. If you have any ideas for me to write on, please share them with me. I would love to hear them.
Now this one is completely out of my comfort zone but also something I’ve wanted to do for awhile. So for this ambition I need to develop a clear cut idea of what kinds of videos I will be making and then go from there. Funny? Family updates? Business updates? Inspirational? Helpful? All of the above?
I really struggle with routine and schedule at home and with the kids, especially when it comes to homeschooling. I need to work on being more diligent about having a routine and schedule so we can have more productive days and learn that much more.
That’s all I got for my first set of quarterly ambitions. In October I will write an update of new ambitions and if I conquered these or whether they conquered me. If you have any suggestions to help me with my ambitions, questions about ambitions, or would like to share your ambitions then please leave me a comment or send me a message. Just get ahold of me somehow. We can encourage each other to follow through with our ambitions!
