Revisiting My 2015 Goals

mountainI was just reading back through some of my older blog posts, and thought that it was time to check in on my goals from January. All in all, I would say that things are going quite well!

Professional Goals:

  1. Getting back into working on violin technique – This is going very well. This year I have assigned the different days of the week to work on different items that I need to work on. Monday is technique day, so all I work on during my practice session that day is technique.
  2. Getting my music placed in movies – I am not quite to the point of getting my music placed in movies, but I have been reviewing a course I took a few years ago. I will be moving forward on this as the year goes on.
  3. Launch an online fiddle class – I have missed my March timeline, but am still working on this plan.
  4. Launch more group lessons – I have actually just started another adult beginner group class this month. I will be starting some group classes for younger students in the fall as well.

Personal Goals:

  1. Attending Pilates classes 2-3 times a week – This has been going very well, and I must say that I have been enjoying it greatly!
  2. Walk 2015km in 2015 – I am now at 550km, which has me right on track for this goal.
  3. Read more books – I have been sticking with my goal of two books a month. I have been doing this by taking books with me to the studio and reading when I have breaks instead of playing online.

The biggest goal? Touring Ireland… How is that going? Well, I think it is not going to happen, but for the best possible reason! I have been invited to play at a festival in England this coming summer, so am now looking into the possibility of putting together a tour with gigs in England and Scotland instead of Ireland. Once I have more information about this, I will certainly let you all know!

All in all, I would say that 2015 is going quite well!
