I suppose I have only been ‘wishing’ for a very long time. I had a goal…but I didn’t have a plan. Someone once said to me, ‘spit in one hand and wish in the other, and see which one gets full first’. Guess what, the ‘wishing’ hand stays empty.
It took me a while to actually ‘get it’, but I finally did. Therefore, the title of this blog ‘A Goal Without a Plan is Just a Wish‘ quoted by Frenchman Antonie Saint Exupery resonates the importance of having a solid plan in order to accomplish any goal.
I knew 2017 was the year to accomplish my goal! In steps Stephanie Crain, marketing strategist and daughter, who came up with the plan! Silly me, I thought it was take the image, print it, invite people and they will come. Wow, I never knew what was involved to put on an art show! Weekly meetings started to happen. I become very focused on what I was doing. Traveling became secondary to this. I had a team of people helping me including my website guy, my mentor and both printing labs here in Texas [Canvas Press] and in California [DaVinci Digitale]. The team grew even more as the months when on.
The Joy Element was born! This has been just a joyful experience especially with The Joy of Arrival. And to think this is only the tip of what is yet to arrive to my house. And now less than a month away…the countdown begins.
