January – A Whole New World

aladdin_jasmine_carpet

I am about a week into January and what do I have to show for myself?  Actually quite a bit!  I got right to work and started with an outline of everything I would love to accomplish this month in an ideal scenario:

  • new promo video
  • updated and organized resume
  • work goals
  • read “Getting Things Done”
  • new website

I’m not so excited about the actual work, but I like the planning and I like the potential outcome so I’ll just have to trudge along through the middle steps.  I mean there is a reason I haven’t moved on this stuff in, oh three years or so… it’s so time consuming and somewhat boring.  For someone with a lot to do, I sure find a lot of time for:

I think I may have to ban the internet this month…

I started on the promo right away, but as I was working on it I decided to actually make three separate promos: Aerial, Hula Hoop and an “everything” one.  Because this month’s goals weren’t time consuming enough as it was :/

Actually I decided to make separate ones after asking myself the annoying question, “what am I trying to do with these videos/ what are these videos for”.  To be honest the first time I said that to myself it was while complaining and sounded more like:

“Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyy  do I want to doooooooooooo   ttthhhhhhhhiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssss  :(”

However, it did make me think about what these videos were for.  The clearer the goal/plan for the finished videos is, the easier it is to make choices within said video.  Which cuts to the main point of why I want to update everything, I really want to apply to new circuses.  With that motivation in mind, I trucked along at video editing at a much more productive rate!  Now I have a whole new world of motivation to get me through all this work 🙂

Here’s what I have to show for myself so far, promo 1 of 3:
