If you’re like most artists I know you probably have a limited amount of time to spend working on your art career goals. If so, that shouldn’t deter you from embarking on the journey toward achieving your dreams. As a career coach for artists, and one who is extremely goal oriented when it comes to my own career, I’ve learned when you have a strong desire to manifest something you really want and the right course of action, it’s amazing what you can accomplish by devoting just a few minutes every day toward that goal. As your Artrepreneur Coach I offer 16 tips to help you achieve your goal in 30 days even if you spend only 30 minutes a day.
I recommend you print this page and refer to it often.
Follow These 16 Tips to Help You Achieve Your Goal
• Choose your goal(s) and define your 30-day project. (See list of ideas below.)
• Depending upon how busy your schedule is, choose a project that will require only an average of 30 minutes daily, or you may abort it.
• Decide to view the 30-day project as a positive and enjoyable experience that will empower you.
• Make a commitment to work on a goal or project every day for 30 days.
• Choose a goal that will motivate and energize you, and perhaps take you a bit outside your comfort zone. Avoid choosing a goal that will intimidate or over burden you. The purpose is to look forward to working on it every day.
• Set a specific start date in the not-too-distant future. For many individuals, the first day of the month is a good date.
• Write your goals and activities in a journal or computer file and keep it updated daily. Also, use inspirational visual reminders about your goals on your phone or bulletin board.
• Prepare yourself before the start date. Make sure you have everything you need, including setting time aside every day to work on your goal, and creating your daily activity list.
• Adjust to the ebb and flow that will naturally occur. As your energy shifts, give yourself permission to put less effort into your goal on some days and more on others. However, make a commitment to do something every day and spend an average of 30 minutes a day.
• Select a primary dedicated time slot for your activity and also a secondary option. This way, if you miss the earlier time, such as early morning, you’ll be sure to work on the project later on in the day no matter what.
• Life happens and you might miss a day during the 30-day period. Don’t berate yourself. Start again and try very hard not to miss another day.
• Remind yourself this should be enjoyable while you also stretch yourself to achieve your fullest potential.
• At the end of the day, take time to feel good about what you’ve already achieved and take time to write your tomorrow’s plan of action and 30-minute activity.
• On day 30, congratulate yourself and reflect on how much you have accomplished.
• Plan your next powerful 30-day project.
