#001 – Start Your Year with Clear Creative Goals

Let’s get started with laying the foundation for a year of creative success by setting clear goals that will guide your journey.

Actionable Tip: Start by setting a clear creative goal for the year. Having a well-defined goal can provide direction and motivation. Think about what you want to achieve and make it specific, measurable, and attainable.

Inspiration Corner: When I first decided to make art a central part of my life, I set a goal to create at least one piece of art each week. It isn’t always easy with dogs, being a caregiver and also pursuing other passions, like hiking.

Something that happened is that I discovered my favorite style to pyrography. As someone who just wood-burned whatever came to mind, I learned just because I can do a pet portrait, it didn’t mean I really wanted to create them.

Creative Challenge: Write down your top three creative goals for this year. Make sure each goal is specific and realistic. For example:

  1. Complete a new art piece, song, poem every month.
  2. Write a short story or blog post every two weeks.
  3. Learn a new creative skill, such as digital illustration.

Resource Recommendation: Check out “The Creative Habit” by Twyla Tharp. This book is a treasure trove of practical advice and exercises to help you build a consistent and productive creative practice.

Setting clear goals is the first step toward turning your creative dreams into reality.

I can’t wait to see what you achieve this year!

Stay wild-hearted.

Cheers,

Petra
