• August: Small Goals

      posted in Life In General by Kay on August 10, 2017

      With the last month of summer upon us it’s time for some August goals. Be sure to check out Writes Like A Girl’s blog, as I recently discovered she’s who started the small goals train! She’s got a link-up too!

      If I’m being honest, I wrote July’s goals in a post and literally never looked at them again. I never even wrote them in my bullet journal. I’ve got the post open in another tab right now as I write this just to remember what they are. So the July goal wrap-up will probably be pretty rough. :/

      July Goals Wrap-Up

      1. Reach out locally about art jobs. Sigh. Nope. I’m the worst.

      2. Set aside 20 minutes each day for sketching. Nope. I did do a lot more sketching, but definitely not every day. It’s still something I need to work on to make it a regular habit.

      3. Finish another Zodiac portrait. Success! Libra is complete, and I’m moving on to Cancer next.

      4. Brainstorm ideas for Patreon. Success! I’ve got a rewards system planned out, and even a launch date prepped.

      Well, two out of four is better than I expected! Onto August goals.

      1. Complete another Zodiac portrait. This should be incredibly easy since it’s already drawn out. I just need to add color.

      2. Prep for Patreon launch. Now that it’s planned, I need to get some things ready for it! Some illustrations for the page, some rewards – much to do this month!

      3. Yoga at least 3 times a week. I’ve been quite lax about yoga this summer, often only setting aside time for it once or twice a week. I feel so much better when I start the day with a yoga session, and need to get back into that schedule.

      4. Thumbnails for my Fear series. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I just posted my first piece in a series all about Fear. With the first one done, I want to get thumbnails of more ideas so I can get to work on them in the fall.

      Sticking to four sounds like a plan! In reality, I have a lot more things I’d like to get done but these are the biggies.

      Have you got any big plans or goals for the last month of summer?
