Ah, the yellow goals. My social and creative side. My weakest side. Let’s see how I did in 2016.
MY YELLOW GOALS: Focus your energy, be prolific
- First out of the gate is my Writing goal. This looks a bit like my blue goal, but whereas the blue was more about non-fiction and blogging, this was about my true creative side. Fiction was non-existent. Posting stuff was almost non-existent, although I did put up a couple of things. And I killed the creativity challenge, and I don’t mean that in a celebratory way. Literally, I killed it, deleting the group from Facebook. There just wasn’t enough interest. I’m still doing memes, quotes, jokes, etc. which is something. Part red, part yellow, part green, I guess I’ll call it YELLOW overall.
- I thought the Cooking one was going to be a complete and utter bust. Most of the year, I tried almost nothing new. I compiled some stuff, organized a few things, but wasn’t really making much progress. And then in October and November, we tried some baking and a couple of new recipes. A small burst of creative energy. Not enough to go green, but I’ll keep it as YELLOW for now.
- The third category was a specific area of creativity I wanted to work on. Namely, creating PhotoBooks. These vary from year-in-reviews to potential thematic ones. And overall, I’m really quite happy with my progress. I completed three “year in review” ones (2014, 2015 and a partial for 2009 to complement an earlier partial) plus a souvenir book for a 90th birthday party. Overall, clearly GREEN.
As much work as the PhotoBooks were, I think I have to still knock myself down to YELLOW overall.
