…well, maybe not so much “out.” More like “continue.” I can’t say it was a bad year, but it was a bit uncertain, and I’m pretty sure 2012 will be the same. I could make resolutions and goals and plans and all, but I don’t know that it will get me anywhere. Mostly I plan to keep going and see where I end up. Maybe not the best way to do things, but I think it will work out in the end.
This is not to say there aren’t things I plan to improve this year. I really need to learn to organize my time. I find that when I’m crazy busy, I’m far more organized and efficient than when I don’t have much to do. I need to keep that efficiency all the time—because, let’s face it, I should always be crazy busy. There are so many art projects in my head that I don’t know how I can keep stuffing more in there—and, yet, I do. Every day. I need to get them out and finished.
I also need to figure out how to work this Internet community thing. If I’m going to continue freelancing, I need to get out more, even if it’s just virtual. I need to learn how to use LinkedIn and Twitter—and more importantly, I need to actually post stuff. I tend to treat the Internet the same way as the old office Christmas party, where I stand in a corner and listen to everyone else’s conversations. Not that it isn’t fun, but I’m never going to get anywhere if I don’t say something. Which leads to…
…do more stuff so I have stuff to say. Which, once I’m crazy busy all the time, shouldn’t be hard to do. I hope.
Anyway, here’s to a great year for everyone.
Happy New Year!
