The Future

I’ve been trying to visualize the future these past few weeks. Where do I see myself? Where do I see my business going? What are my plans? I have a lot of things that I want to try and experience now that I have a bit more freedom with my schedule and how I make money. I always make lists. Post-it note lists, Moleskine lists, printer paper lists, iPhone notes list…um this is a list? (I have problems.) Here’s a short list of a few things that I want to try now that I’m self-employed (as realistic or dream-like as they are):

  1. Explore the art of videomaking and experiment with cameras and software
  2. Grow my film photography business
  3. Have a home office (and then someday have my own office outside of our home)
  4. Open my eyes to UX/UI design + best practices
  5. Meet some of my blogger friends in real life
  6. Freelance from another city for a week
  7. Financially sponsor WMC Fest in Cleveland
  8. Utilize my design blog regularly
  9. Work with an accountant and pay taxes quarterly
  10. Pull an all-nighter (just kidding)

Anything that I should add to the list? Do you ever make professional goals? What about all you lovely self-employed readers? How do you keep it fresh and new?
