Setting SMART Goals

I’ve been working on setting up my journal for the Best Month Ever challenge for November. I’m having a little bit of trouble setting my SMART goals, but little by little the ideas are coming to me.

Here’s what I have so far:

Yes, I realize the chart is blank!! It’s just a start. I have some ideas that I need to write down under Specific and Measurable. I need to understand SMART goal setting a little more before I can fill in the rest. At least I have it started!!

My goals for the month are to learn HTML and to understand how to use the manual settings on my T3i. I feel both of these skills will be useful for me in the future. I found a really nice manual photography cheat sheet on Pinterest, so I printed it out and put it in my notebook. Nice inspiring visual!

I already have an idea floating around in my head that I want to run with once I have mastered both of these skills. It’s an idea that came to me two years ago, but the domain name has been registered for longer than that. A friend posted a link on my Facebook page that triggered some ideas in my head. I REALLY need to understand photography before I can move forward with the concept, and HTML knowledge would be great in setting up the website the way I’d like it. I still need some more ideas and skills before I can really implement the site, but this is definitely a start in the right direction.

I’m excited by all of this!! 🙂
