But this year I have 3. And another 3 for Amped+Dangerous specifically.
They are a bit more abstract this year, so hopefully I can still stick to them as good as last years, which you can read all about here. I surprisingly followed through on all four, and they have stuck with me through to 2011 too.
1. SAVING FOR A NEW YORK CITY TRIP FOR 2012.
It is time that I do something about my dream to fly across the skies and plant myself in New York City, New York. For the resolution to work, I need to do some research on how much I am going to need and how feasable is my idea of staying there for at least one to one and half months. Thats the ultimate timeframe. And it seams 2012 is the year to travel. Most of my close friends are all jet setting to different parts of the world. As most of us graduate at the end of this year :)
....Oh yeah! I graduate this year :D
2. FREELANCE MORE + LEARN HOW TO ASK FOR MONEY $$$
I already do some freelance jobs but I intend to increase that. Like I said, I graduate this year, so I want to gain more work experience. More to the point that my CV/Resume looks ridiculous. I have been so lucky that 2010 brought me amazing opportunities in the fashion industry. I would love to continue all that and do more in Entertainment + Media. However one issue I have been having at the moment with my freelance gigs is that I feel so uncomfortable in asking people money for my services. I know my ideas are good, and I am very very good at what I do. So I feel like I am justified in getting paid.. I just need to learn how to ask for money :S As blunt as that sounds.
I received one great advice:
"You just need to go for it! Ask for such a ridiculous amount that you think they will turn you down for. And you will actually find out that they will agree to pay that amount anyway". Juan Martitegui from MindValey in Malaysia.
3. BE MORE PATIENT...
SPECIFICALLY RELATING TO AMPED+DANGEROUS
As I guess, if youre reading this, you intend to know how I am about to up my game for 2011.
1. A COMPLETE REDESIGN
I got myself an external hard drive, and now am waiting to grab myself the new Photoshop suite. Then all I need is a scanner - cause while I am waiting for my photoshop.. I have been free drawing most of the designs.
2. STUDYING TO MAKE IT A BETTER BLOG
I have already started.. words like SEO, branding, monetizing, AdSense, optimization has already changed the way I look at my blog, and the way I am using blogger. :)
3. CONSTANT CONTENT
As advised by the genius Jason Manley himself. But of course the content needs to apply.
HOPE YOUR NEW YEAR BRINGS YOU MANY OPPORTUNITIES AND HAPPINESS.
