Setting Goals

One of our choices this month for a writing topic (for Etsy Blogger's Team) is about goals, long or short term. And what a topic it is. Sometimes I just struggle with these posts! Do I write fluff off the top of my head, or do I dig deep and write about some life long dream of mine, opening up my soul a bit for the onlooker who may be stopping by. Well, I have to tell ya, It's taken me all week to think about this one! And think some more! I read over some of my teammates blog posts to get an idea of what others are doing, just to get a feel for it. So here's what I came up with.
My Jewelry Business Goals
Now as much as I've read, and write about, and research this subject, I never really have put down on paper a true list of goals in a time or formal setting. This will actually be my first! And for the world to see! Oh my! I mean I do make lists. I make daily lists of projects I want to work on that day, or projects to finish, and right now I have piles of little sheets of paper all over my desk and work area of sketches of jewelry designs that come to me so I don't forget them. I do need to start a notebook to compile all of these instead of the pile of papers all over the place.
I guess I could say this would be a first step to a first goal on week one.
I've read many places where it is suggested to have short and long term goals to strive for.
Right now this is all I can come up with:
LONG TERM: in 5 years: Hopefully not be working in the profession currently that I'm in, either doing something else or strictly working in the jewelry business.
WITHIN THE NEXT 3 YEARS: Becoming an active member of local organizations (pertaining to arts and business owners) And actively taking part in at least 3 "good" art shows per season.
WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR: Having my jewelry in one shop or gallery in each town/city in my area.
WITHIN THE NEXT 6 MONTHS: Doing at least one art show. (My original goal was to do 3, but with the economy, I just don't see it happening)
Like I said before, that's all I have right now.
Well, what do you think?
