At the beginning of this year, we set our goals and I am still working to achieve them. Sometimes you need to reassess and figure out if you need to change your approach. So far, I feel like I'm still on target with my 2009 goals and need to re-focus on a few. I probably need to set some different goals too.
As a result, I've been thinking that nothing helps motivate quite as well as that Dream that has what I like to call the 'burn factor'. Something that is an incentive to motivate you to go all out to achieve your goals and as a result, you can reward yourself with this incentive.
Here's mine... The Paragon Pearl 56, designed by the creative folks at Bullseye Glass. Yowser! Now THAT's a huge incentive for me. My dream kiln. The interior chamber of this bad boy is 56" wide, 30" deep, and 16 1/2" high. "A whole lotta cookin' could go on in there" :D
The point is that this is a reward that I can really get a 'burn' for. It motivates me to do better. I plan on posting a picture of this jewel where I can see it often...like all the time. So, I will put a picture of it by my computer monitor and by one of my work areas in the glass studio. You get the idea, somewhere to help remind me that this is something I'm working to achieve. I have to achieve my goals before I can have this type of a reward.
What will help motivate you in your work/business? Anyone else have a dream with the burn factor? Care to share? Remember, the incentive may change for you too and that's ok, as long as you are working to be the best you can be in your work. Happy creating all!
