Wow. I signed up for the SAQA Visioning Project and really have great expectations for this project.
Around 100 SAQA quilt artists have signed up and made a commitment to publicly commit to one stretch goal for the next 12 months. We will be grouped by types of goals to share, give feedback, and see what action steps others are taking to reach the same goal. Planning includes specific action steps to take and how to measure what we have done.
I made the goal to develop and execute a marketing plan to earn at least $XXXX through sales, commissions, or grants in the next 12 months. I am a little shy about revealing the dollar figure to the whole world. But I will let my followers know if I am reaching the goal or not and why.
Lisa Chipetine, SAQA's new president, is heading this project up and has brought in others to help mentor people around their specific goals.
So far, I find that it is really helping me stay focused on the long range goals and to keep nibbling away at them. It also has helped focus my short term goals so they are steps on the way to the bigger vision.
How do you stay focused on your goals?
