When I interviewed lots of photographers a few years ago, I heard they mentioned the word Chaos regularly when they described how they felt and what their biggest frustration was.
Too many moving parts, too many details, too many different clients that all want something different. And since we are artists and very service minded and sometimes not completely sure of our work we tend to over give and want our clients to have the best of the best.
And that can cause stress. And feelings of overwhelm.
And it had a negative effect on people’s productivity. They felt they were not operating at their full potential. There were so many ideas floating in their heads that they also wanted to work on, but somehow the day went by, just by attending to the things that had to be done.
Chaos in your life because you have too many different things going on causes uncomfortable feelings that make you less productive and efficient and not operating at your full potential.
Now luckily there is a thing you can do to solve that.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.
Every morning with your morning coffee, work on the following:
As you can imagine, the first time you do this will take you a bit more time. If you have no idea what you want to do in 5 years, I recommend my blog post about my goals for 2016 on Radiant Photographer. Pick a nice Sunday afternoon for this.
After you have written this down, the month and week goals will be much easier and will take you only 10-20 minutes.
So now you have a clear road to living to your full potential :)
And if you need help organising your need-to-do-for-your-clients things I recommend trying out ShootZilla. This will help your mind even more to step out of the chaos and into living to your full potential day-by-day.
And the freedom and fulfillment that that gives you is enormous.
There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.
