"The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals."
Around this time of year you start thinking of your New Year's resolutions. Actually...let's be honest...you're most likely thinking about how bogus New Year's resolutions are.
They are there for people to set, attempt for the month of January and then completely abandon without guilt. When's the last time you a heard from a friend of yours who actually saw one of their resolution through to the end of the year?
But setting goals for yourself is a very important part of learning and improvement. And there are ways you can establish your goals so that you are more likely to succeed at them.
In this episode we talk about a few ways that you can set yourself up for success with your own goals for the next year. They are simple but very essential to getting yourself to the next level.
SET GOALS...AND THEN ACTUALLY WORK TOWARDS THEM
Also as we end this year, we can't thank our listeners enough! (That would be you).
This podcast started as a shared goal between Josh and myself, as we mention in the episode, and along the way has turned its focus to the goals of the listeners.
What do you want to learn about post-production that will help you in your career?
What other ways are you looking to improve your physical and mental health?
What else would help give you that boost that you need to become more confident with yourself?
We have a lot planned for the Command+Edit Podcast for 2016. Listen to the episode to find out what our goals are and how we plan to achieve them.
