But do I HAVE to set a goal for my art practice?

If you're an artist who has given up on setting goals for your art practice because they never seem to turn out - this episode is for you!

I know a lot of artists who are resistant to setting goals. I get it. It seems impossible without sacrificing your creative process. 

Setting goals is not just about achieving them, it's about who you become in the process of going after them. 

In this episode, I give you practical tips to help you reach your artistic goals without drowning in overwhelm or stiffling your creative process.

Setting and achieving goals is a skill that can be learned and mastered. Anyone can do it yep, even a super creative, hard to tame artist like you!

Here's what we cover:

  • Understanding Overwhelm: Why are goals so overwhelming? Often it's because we keep playing old tapes of past failures or the pressure of expectations just seems too much. Recognizing what's behind the resistance helps you to  manage those feelings effectively.
  • Goal Setting as a Skill: Setting and achieving goals is a skill that can be learned and mastered, transforming it into a powerful tool for artistic growth.
  • Small Steps Matter: Usually more than you think!  Breaking down large goals into smaller, baby steps alleviates overwhelm and increases your likelihood of success.
  • Emotional Navigation: Sometimes you can't escape it - you gotta acknowledge and work through emotions like doubt and guilt that arise during the goal-setting process. Believe it or not - this is a significant part of your personal and artistic development!
  • Continuous Learning and Growth: Achieving goals isn't just about the end result. It's about the journey towards becoming the artist you want to be, which includes developing new habits and facing personal challenges.
