I've just come off some of the hardest months of what can be termed as growth in my personal and private life. Part of me feels like I finally have some free time but if anything, my time is now simply free for me to choose what to do with. Lists have been made, ideas have been generated, but am feeling anxious and almost intoxicated by the all that I am hoping to learn and do, it is just simply TOO much, and being honest with myself means being strategic rather than ideal with what will provide me the best return of time via experience and growth.
Some of the things I want to tackle via [growth themes]
1. Street Photography [personal x professional]
2. Finding a writing voice/style [personal x professional]
3. Building my network [ professional x personal]
4. Self-Discipline [personal]
5. Mental Health [LIFE]
I am capping these at five things to work on, all points are in some way interconnected. Street photography helps further develop my content and everyday life thematic interests, writing helps me lend a voice to these photographic essays. Photos and writing are a way to engage with my network trough content creation [because academics need to be seen online nowadays]. Lastly, self-discipline is the gear that makes this work but my mental health is the foundation of this system that I am trying to optimize (ahem, my life)
The first step is (to me) always the hardest. Today I am choosing to just DO, no matter what.
Well, check in tomorrow for some photographs from today :)
