When I'm stuck in a rut like this, sometimes all it takes to snap me out of it is a little inspiration and that is exactly what I got at last night's Bloguette's Speed Dating Workshop. <<And no, it's not that kind of speed dating!>> The workshop was set up speed dating style, but I got one-on-one time to chat and network with successful local bloggers, photographers, social media gurus, and business strategists. It was wonderful being able to bounce my ideas off of these professionals, especially since I'm gearing up to launch the new site soon! I left the workshop very impressed and feeling super motivated to get to work--just what I needed! Check out the Bloguette's website if you're in need of some blogging help, they truly are the experts. Also be on the lookout for me in my sassy new Bloguette's tee, coming to a blog post near you.
After yesterday's workshop I decided I needed a way to keep track of my goals, short term & long term, because boy do I have a lot of them. I've tried writing them down in a notebook each month, but the notebook ultimately gets buried in a pile somewhere whilst the same thing happens mentally and I never get too far on them. Ooops. To solve this problem I decided to craft a cute little Pantone goal board to colorfully display my goals on my desk and serve as a constant motivator. I headed over to Lowe's which is one of the few hardware stores that carries Pantone, raided their 3x3 paint swatches, grabbed a 12x12 frame, and mounted them under glass. Boom. Easy as that. Now I can gaze at my goals whenever I want and have a friendly little reminder to get to work. I can't wait to see how fast I'll be crossing these guys off now. Wish me luck!
