goals.

June 19, 2015

Goals:
To re-learn and improve: playing tin whistles, singing, Garageband (audio) and iMovie software.
To learn: harmonica, cigar box guitar, other software.
To practice consistently: meditation, exercise (damn, I need to get in better shape!!), and activities listed above.
To later create: more experimental music and strange videos to go with the music. Also, more band videos. Will likely head back to The Crux fairly soon.
To work on later: printing out nature and other photos in various ways and sell them.
To read: books on Buddhism, Existentialism, and eventually get to some of the classics I’ve not read yet, especially those written by John Steinbeck and Ernest Hemingway. I like Steinbeck a lot. I am not much of a Hemingway fan, but feel I should at least finish For Whom the Bell Tolls and the short story collection, “The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories.”

And not beat myself up when I don’t accomplish all my goals! Maybe I have too many goals? It’s hard to know what to work on! I feel sometimes I should devote more time to art, and especially to writing, and spend far less time trying to learn to play music.

I don’t know. It’s tough when so often nothing feels really right. But better to have some goals than no goals.

It’s the inertia principle.. it is a lot easier to change direction once in motion. I’ll work on the things I’ve listed in this post, and through working on them, figure out what to devote more or less time and energy to.
