Hi, Deb. My gosh you've got alot planned for 2008! Whew! Made me tired just reading it. I love your energy and enthusiasm.

Here's an idea...bottle up some of that energy and sell it online! You could become rich!

Did you do a similar list last year? Did you accomplish everything on the list?

I always heard that it's best to break goals such as yours into small, doable steps. So instead of "listen to Tony Robbins tapes", it's better to say "listen to 1 Tony Robbins tape a month" or something like that. And putting a date on each helps too. "Visit Santa Fe galleries by end August" might be a good plan. Otherwsie everything can slip and get unmanagable.

Here's looking at ya, kiddo.

One tip about Santa Fe....

Their off season is right now. Winter. Hence, they have down time to talk. Their peak season is over the summer. So they are busier and less likely to want to talk with you.

Also, I went there on a Friday. Big mistake. That's the day they have opening receptions and they get super busy and just a little crabby!


Art Never Sleeps said...

Here's a suggestion for your new website...when you get to that point, send me the link to the beta/test version (or send screen captures) and I will be happy to critque it for you. I'm pretty good at that seeing I've designed more than a few award-winning designs since 1995.

Have fun.


Art Never Sleeps said...

I'm almost ashamed to say I have only 1 art related goal for 2008.

And I might be working with an artist consultant (no, not Alyson). We exchanged several emails recently and when I mentioned my 1 single goal ( and that goal is... to be rich and famous by the end of 2008 {wink} ) she responded that I was pathetic and she would recommend I revise my goal to be that I will be rich and famous by February.

You gotta love her attitude!


Deb Chaney said...

Jm - YOu are a crack up! I do hope you are rich and famous by Feb...I would be glad to know you.
Thank you - I will take up your offer for reviewing the new website. I'm finishing writing my 2008 marketing plan right now and will be sending off the new website contract after I send this doc off to Alyson.
Much love and laughs.
keep being your crazy self, just love it. Deb
