I spent this week in Northern England between Manchester and Liverpool and our entire focus was all about ‘owning your work as an artist.’ If you want to get better in life (work and personal) you need to stay the course to achieve your goals.
Today is Friday – what a wonderful day to take a breath and re-focus on what you want to accomplish by the end of this year. Start by setting a specific goal, and reward yourself when you get to that goal.
If you are in sales (like me), start taking part of your commission for every sale you make and put it into a separate ‘celebrate fund.’ We spend so much time saving for the big stuff we often forget to ‘live in the moment.’
Remind yourself constantly about the goals you are working toward. Hang a picture of whatever it is you want in your office so you can see it every day. Don’t let the negativity or fear get you down. Hold your head up high, look at the picture, smile, laugh and soon you will make your dreams come true.
Go ahead and treat yourself – after all it is Friday and Fridays are POETS’ Day in the UK. If you don’t know what that means… "piss off early, tomorrow's Saturday"
