Yet I still need a way to ensure artistic progress. For the last few years, I have used a method where I list all the possible moves forward at that particular moment. I pick the one I'm most excited about and the one most likely to move my artistic project forward.
The list in my journal is much like goal setting–I generate a list of possibilities–but the intent is different. I select only one aim as the next step forward. I focus solely on that step. The list remains in my journal and I may return to the other possibilities but only as a resource to determine the next best step.
Wishing you the very best in 2015.
