Do you make a creative (or non-creative) New Year's Resolution every year?
Do you keep up with it? Or do you fail?
Don't worry, we all fail.
In this episode, Youngman talks about why year-long goals are an amazing way to change your creative habits for the better and can completely alter your mindset.
But a year is a long time. Too long for most of us. We are already eagerly awaiting December 31st after only a few weeks, and the end of the year seems so far away that we get demotivated and quit.
We try it every year, and fail every year.
Youngman will attempt to offer a solution to the “But This Year is Different” syndrome so that you can finally say that you accomplished your creative New Year's Resolution. If you have the willpower to get through it, it might just jump-start your creative career in ways that you never could have imagined.
