setting goals

posted on 8th of july, 2012

Who would have believed a few months ago that I, a photographer without any training, would have reached over 100 photos accepted. The start of the journey was hard and after many refusals I wondered, (as many others have I am sure) if this was for me. I decided to take every criticism and use it to learn. Well all of the hard work paid off and now I can take a look back and walk tall. Now that I have reach the 100 goal, it is time for me to set the next one. To reach 250 by year end, and should I reach it sooner, we will just set a new one. To all beginners out there, it may be hard at first but like in life don't give up, set easy goals to start and once you reach them, they become their own reward.

I did the same as you on 27th April 2009 and have 2116 images on line........ but its quality that really counts not just numbers ......... some folk have 400 images and typically 8000 sales. David.
