Setting Goals as the Seasons Change

I love this time of year when there is the slightest hint of autumn in the air. The egrets always know when fall is on the way. We live in the country and watching them fly over every morning, wave after wave, always signals the change of seasons.

It's around this time of year that my thoughts turn to goals for the upcoming year with the usual number is five. S.M.A.R.T.: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely goals. This is something I have been doing every fall for several years and it has made all the difference. Something else I usually do is keep them to myself. Why? Because they are personal and I guard them zealously. Some people are more successful when making themselves accountable to others, either a close friend or members of their tribe. Perhaps because I am an introvert, keeping them to myself works best for me. I came across the following article by Philip Pape while writing mine.

Onward and Upward!

I am deeply honored to have been selected the new Texas State Ambassador for the Portrait Society of America. Many thanks to my predecessor, Anna Rose Bain, for the tremendous job she has done for the past four years. She has truly set the bar high and I will do my best to carry on her wonderful work. Our loss is Colorado's gain. Anna, you will be greatly missed here in Texas!
