High Desert Sun Set

Moving to the High Desert in 2003 was difficult for me; I am a city girl. I never thought I would live in the desert environment, vacation yes, but live on the High Desert, NO!
Years have passed; I have enjoyed sun sets with intense color vibration, lightening that zigzags to the ground followed by thunder booming its angst as it rolls across the darkened sky, and the whiteness of a blanket of snow in winter.
I am a landscape painter in ah of how beautiful the seasonal changes are in the High Desert.

Happy New Year!

Planning for 2012

Think about what you want to complete in 2012.
1. Write down your ideas and how you will accomplish the task.
2. Separate into 6 month, and 12 month goals.
3. Add a completion date for each goal.
4. Be realistic about what can fit into your schedule.

For me, New Year's Day is my assigned day to write down my goals and how I will accomplish them for that year. With coffee in hand and Microsoft Word page open, I free-write all the ideas that come into mind. Then one by one I elaborate and tweak until I have a doable business plan for the year.

Comment on how you make your business plan for the New Year.

Happy New Year everyone!
