Set your next Dreamstime Milestone

posted on 1st of august, 2008

We all know goals motivate us, and it feels fab to finally reach one. So what is your next Dreamstime Milestone ?

For so long mine has been to get a "people shot" accepted. And of course, like with everything else, i spent way too long perfecting it, before i even submitted one. Today, i got my first portrait accepted, which was also the first portrait i ever submitted. It feels great knowing im finally breaking through that huge milestone. But in true maggie style, ive been so particular about the quality, that i only submitted one, to test the water. So now whats my next milestone ?

Maybe ill go for a "second portrait accepted" goal, or how about my "first portrait sale". That would be a great one!

Whatever your goal is, im sure we all have them. Id love to know the little milestones you set yourself, especially those of you who, like me are learning along the way..

Hi Maggie, nice shot. Interesting article - I was just thinking about writing something like this - as I have recently reached my goal of getting at least 50 photos on dreamstime. :) So hooray. My next milestone is to get an extended licence sale, hopefully in the not distant future. :)
