I know everyone is going to be making Resolution journal's as soon as the clock strikes midnight later this week, and everyone's inboxes are going to be filled with these ho-hum entries (if you follow Journals), so I thought I might present mine for deletion a little early.

I don't usually make resolutions upon the coming of the new year because I see them as pointless. Why wait to make a change? Why not start now, or in the middle of the year? And I feel changes take some getting used to. You can't just dive head first into a bag of salad because you think you need to shed a few pounds. You have to work your way into a new way of thinking, which is why I think jumping the gun at midnight is a bad idea.

Moaning aside, I'm going to try and focus on being more productive this year. I know I say that often, and it may seem that I don't do much, but the things I upload here are only a fraction of the things I've done. And if I crunched the numbers correctly, then I average at least one "finished" (i.e., acceptable to upload) drawing every week, and have been doing so for the past three years. I would like to see this number double so as to match my output from 2011, and I think I can accomplish this not by setting daily or weekly goals, but by setting monthly ones. If I get into the mindset of completing projects by the end of every month, then I think my productivity will increase while still focusing on quality.

I also need to work on my organization skills. My HDD is organized down to a T, but my physical work space could use some tidying up. I am actively searching for advice in any form (blog, book, podcast, video, etc.) on how creative people stay organized, if at all.

I don't see you around much anymore. You must really be having a fun Spring Break. That or you probably are really busy at your job, huh?
