Cheers to taking risks because we love these, right?
Last week was all about getting into the habit of planning content ( Weekly Journal: Content Planning) and I must say, it worked! I got so much done while also relaxing and preparing for the Fall semester. For many people, creating all of your content for the week, in a day, isn’t new.
Many creatives and many other professions recommend doing it, and I’m ashamed to say it took me this long to start. But, better late than never. There’s an app/website called Trello that I use to create a weekly schedule for myself.
You know, so I won’t be pulling my hair out when something is due.
This week is all about taking risks! When you hear that word or say it out loud, it’s kind of alarming. However, it’s needed when you truly want to reach a goal or follow your dreams. Growing up, I was extremely coy. I never wanted to talk to anyone I didn’t know.
This overshadowed my creativity and made me miss a lot of potential opportunities. That’s why my main goal this week is taking risks! I’m going to be bold and email people I want to collaborate with as well as other things I normally wouldn’t do.
The first time I took a risk, it worked in my favor.
It actually improved my life and gave me the confidence to continue to chase after my dreams. One year later, the improvement in my life is amazing and I can’t wait to see more. When there are so many things you want to do, you have to find a way to get there.
Most importantly… a starting point.
So, my starting point for this week is taking risks.
