Success: Step by Step - Weekly Goals

As ya'll know, I've been laying out 2016 with the help of this fabulous article. Melissa Joy Kong shares:

When you break your monthly sub-goals down like this, you basically create a detailed road map for making stuff happen. It seems so obvious, but no one plans like this. That’s why most people fail (in addition to not creating strategies to eradicate triggers that lead to wasting time).

As 2015 dwindles to a close, I made more time to lay out my 2016 path. As a Capricorn I have a tendency to want to control as much as possible - this year taught me to be flexible and create guidelines instead of having strict expectations. Last time I outlined my yearly goals with the help and guidance of a fantastic article. As you probably already see, my large goals for 2016 are (1 - 60%) learning and research; (2 - 30%) employment and saving; (3 - 10%) health changes.

Goal creation, planning, and execution is tricky. Starting in 2010, every year on my birthday I would set annual goals. I called them "flexi plans" because I know that change is inevitable. In 2015 created a 5-year goal projection. I wished to get married to my high-school sweetheart, own two dogs, clear majority of my OSAP loan, and take a trip to Japan. *PFFFFTTT* Zero of four have been completed within the past 5 years - all goals were very possible, but didn't happen.

This year I created an 11 year projection with the help of this article, by Melissa Joy Kong, called The Most Effective Goal Setting Plan You'll Ever Find.

Ryerson Black Students' Conference Looking back at my archiving experiences, there is little doubt of my growth; Grasping at as many opportunities that push me forward & towards my passions.

  •  I've never owned my own camera (still don't - shoutout to Drey Anozie, NIA Centre for the Arts, and The People Project for letting me borrow/rent your cameras)
  • I am pretty much self-taught with some mentorship, guidance, and youtube support along the way
  • I've shot 100+ events over 5 years (not including side projects and some work for community organizations)

Thank you everyone in the community who believe in me and the work that I do. Without your existence, I wouldn't be doing what I love.
