2018: A Year of Sketches

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 26, 2018, 11:28 AM

Year Of Sketches Copy by taho

Hello again!

I wanted to check in with everyone before the year ended with a quick note.

Thank you for following my work, especially since I haven't been very active. I really appreciate it!

I haven't been able to upload at the frequency I'd like to or work on art as much as I'd like. The few times I'm able to, I haven't been able to devote enough time to a piece to really call it 'done'. My son is turning 1 soon and I've been revamping my portfolio and resume to return to work full-time or at least land a good contract somewhere. Hoping to resume some conversations with companies I liked a lot. 

But even though I haven't had the time to make lots of new work, I've been sketching a lot to practice and jot down ideations. Like athletes, you gotta keep those muscles strong even when you're in between seasons. Oh yeah, I have some progress on personal fitness goals, too- which I'd like to make another journal entry about soon.

Now on to New Year's Resolutions...

Notes by taho

Celebrate 'small' Victories!

First and foremost, please drive safely and sober this NYE- and every day of your life! I've lost 2 friends due to reckless and irresponsible drivers so please don't think this could "never happen to you". (see, I'm so affected by this and it's been years)

In the context of work, I tend to gloss over all the steps it takes to achieve a goal. I ignore all the other great things I've done because they weren't "good enough" in the language of success. There's immense pressure to attain certain milestones in life but at times this just isn't possible. Don't measure your success against everyone else's expectations.

Accept Losses & Move On

I've always found it hard to accept things that didn't pan through well. However, as a mom of 3, I have so much less time and energy to devote to regret. This approach has been beneficial because it's forced me to be less 'emotional' about tasks and more 'methodological'. Everything is like a JIRA ticket now. It just needs to get done.

Be BETTER than I was last year

The way I see it, I can't just make resolutions then rehash them every year. If my list is identical every time I write it, I need to assess what I'm doing wrong or what it is I'm trying to achieve and how these goals bring me closer to that. That said, my list has been more of a self-assessment, peppered with new goals that have emerged from the current year's terrain. 

Have you read these?
