A blogger I follow (Kristen Kalp, kristenkalp. com, for anyone who’s interested), has been working on a new workshop about being brave.
Now, as I’m sailing the world (and honestly making about $50 a month at this point, and can’t afford much of anything), I’m not going to be able to go this year. However, she has inspired me to really look at what I would like to accomplish in 2017, (and to make sure it’s big, brave goals).
Since I have a tendency (like most of us… And even more so for someone with anxiety issues), I usually try to keep my goals within a SAFE space. Nothing too big, and nothing too scary… And I definitely DONT like sharing even those goals, invade I can’t even meet those!
Today, however, it’s early enough in the morning, that I’m just going to share without thinking, and dream BIG.
In 2017 I would like to:
I would like to get at least 4 interviews to get attention to the KKA documentary series.
I would like to get my KKA income (through patreon and youtube) up to $500 a month.
I want to get our youtube subscribers to 5000
I would like to get (at least?) another filmmaking project done (outside of KKA). Probably a short horror film.
… Ok, I admit, even those I pulled back on every single one of…
But if I look at the 3-5 year view, (the amount of time we’re expecting to be on this trip), I can be more honest (that time period feels safer).
I want an income (from all of my projects) of a minimum of $3000 a month – as that’s enough to support my family for whatever comes next.
I would like to have built KKA up to at least 100,000 subscribers.
I would like to have my filmmaking skills to a point where I feel I can (and do) enter my projects into film festivals.
I would like to do a TED talk, and be invited to other empowerment speaking engagements. (Ok this one is big enough it makes me well up with tears and tart shaking as I type it out on my iphone.)
…I’m sure there’s more… But these last few big ones are so big (for me at least) that I can’t really go on…
Ok, be vulnerable with me… What are your big scary (and brave) goals YOU want to accomplish both this year and over the next 5 years?
Thanks for sticking around with me.
