I am looking for help setting goals that will empower me to finally move foward in my life. In the last 10 years I have made a long series of blunders as a result of not planning.see below

1. Going to art school without financial planning.
2. Graduating and then taking jobs that have nothing to do with art, and that I didnt want just for the paycheck.
3. Quitting the only career job I had because (not in art, it was in finance:))I didnt want to be that person, and then not being able to find another job except for starbucks for a year after.
4. Quitting Starbucks for the same reason and then realizing that there is a pattern here and my desicion making skills have become nill.
5. Hoping for the best without having an action plan.
6. Having a masters degree with no job in sight.
7.Being in financial crisis and knowing that the only thing I'm good at is art and yet being paralyzed with fear that I'm not good enough.

I have learned the hard way that following a plan which I've made with my goals in mind is my only hope. I fear that my choices, having been the wrong ones for so long, define me as a failure.

In my caleder today I wrote 4 goals, excercise, goal setting work, 3. (left blank) &4. call charles for car.

Perhaps #3 was supposed to be "ask for help from a goal setting professional." or #5 should have been make a business plan. I need help and I hope that one of you sucess stories out there can throw me a bone. I'm pretty sure I'm missing something here.

I would appreciate any help, anecdotes, etc.

Sincerely,
Megan

HI Megan,

I have only just today discovered this site. I only wish it had been years ago that I had found it, but I guess this is MY time for whatever reasons.

And here I am again in another difficult situation personally & financially. I have to use this fantastic site to help me get my life on track for good.

I really hope that it has helped you to get yours on track to after your post.

Can you give us a feedback on how things are going for you now? Or are you too busy succeeding in your newly formed art life? :) I really hope so.

All the best, T

Good things ahead
by: A friend

Hi Megan,
One of the things that we've found that helps with all of your current goals is by sharing them in a community. It makes them conscious, well know, and most importantly, you get the support you need to succeed and to develop better strategies. You should check out UpRace.com, it's a free goal setting community built along the likes of Twitter and Facebook. I've been using it and I've been able to lose 15 pounds and quit smoking. It really works!

I am not a goal setting "professional" but I will answer from what I've learned about life so far:

1)Congratulations!!! You made it through art school! That's an achievment in itself.

2)Write an inventory of the things that attracted you to the jobs you took; What aspects you liked about the jobs you did. (and any other life experiences you enjoyed...even as a child)

3)Finance is important; again inventory what exactly you found distastfull about the finabce job.

5)Find your likes and research areas in art that include your interests. example; if you found yourself working with children in your past you may find work teaching art to children; or old age homes or perhaps Starbucks has an art department etc...

finally: Everyone is in the financial crisis "globally"...find the people or organization you would like to hold hands with through it and chances are they would like to hold yours too.

Chin up ^_^
