day 28 : planning
i feel like yesterday's post could be tied in with todays as well - future goals and planning kind of go hand in hand.
i'm a planner. i like plans. i like schedules and when things have a space and a home and are organized.
i don't deal with change very well - i'm learning to adapt, but it's still not my favorite.
however, when it comes to planning - in general i have a huge calendar in my office. i make daily and weekly to-do lists to try and prioritize my plans. when it comes time to plan for shows and events, i have a color-coordinated spreadsheet. this year i have a feeling that things will be a little different since so many events are up in the air based on social distancing.
for when i'm working on cards, i usually have a hand-drawn sketch or notes so that i can have a basic plan for execution. i've mentioned the mini books i'm working on for the 100-day project with sketches and color schemes and i'll share them in more depth next week!
i don't have a special photo for today, but am once again relying on a pinterest quote to best represent the theme for today:
while i don't deal well with change, i like this quote. it's not always pass or fail, sometimes it's just a work in progress that needs a little help in staying or re-routing the course. i am learning to work on the big picture and not just the individual steps that get there.
so that's a little bit of background for my approach to planning and how i go about things. tomorrow i'll be sharing some insight to how i go about self-promotion.
it's hard to believe that the end of the month is quickly approaching, it's been such a great challenge this time around.
