TODAY’S NOTE TO SELF: Start small. Use time wisely.
This 300 Days of Creating project has been unbelievably motivating for me! I’m realizing that every day I have a goal to be creative. Even if it doesn’t end up happening, it’s on my mind and something that is present. I’m also realizing how much I love looking back to see what I’ve already accomplished and the progress that’s been made. And THAT in and of itself is incredibly inspiring!
I’m going to attempt to do a monthly progress report here on the blog. Next month I might try to be a bit more detailed about certain pieces but for now, I’m just going to show the pics.
To date I’m at 24/300 days. And there are 304 days left in the year. That means I have a little wiggle room to meet my goal, but not much! When I calculate it out I think I can only miss approx. 2.5 days a month from here out. Oy!
As you can see, my counted days range from photo shoots to art journaling to painting to doodles. I’m not setting any boundaries . Just focusing on being actively creative! How is the project going for you??? Are you staying motivated?
And again, it’s not too late to start!!! There are still 304 days left in the year! 😉
dreaming of snow covered mountain tops…
i truly love going to the mountain (mt. hood) in the winter. driving up and crossing into the land of snow always gives me instant peace and a rush of happiness! sadly, snow is one thing we have not had enough of here in the NW. i’m sure there are many of you who would gladly give us yours. of course, wouldn’t it be nice if it worked that way!

Looking back, some of my best years of productivity and happiness have been the years that I make a list of things I want to accomplish in that year. I’m realizing though that it’s not JUST the list writing, cause truth be told, I do that every year. It’s been the times that I put my list of goals out there, document the progress and really reflect on my list that seems to make the things on my list actually come to fruition.
These are all things I REALLY WANT to do. But I get tired. And lazy. And distracted. The list helps me to stay on track. And putting it out here for all of you to see, gives me a sense of accountability.
I like to break my list up into different categories, as you’ll see below.
I’ve already marked off “Hike Dog Mountain“!
My friend Stacey and I trekked the 6.9 mile hike last Friday and it was awesome!
There was no view of the Columbia River Gorge to be had, but the frozen fog was quite magnificent.
I love the quote “Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail”.
I know it doesn’t hold true in every case but for me, planning definitely increases my productivity. And being productive, makes me happy.
For the items that are a weekly or a monthly I’m adding a * each time they’re accomplished.
