“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishments.”~Jim Rohn

Yes, I did it! I completed my Art20k challenge to paint 20,000 square inches for the year 2013.  My actual total for this year is 20,262 square inches. Last year, I painted over 15,000 and added 5,000 more for this year.  I’m glad I did and I plan on painting more next year, but I will tell you more about my new challenge January 2014. 


Having two goals back to back instills discipline.

What was difficult for me in the past has now become part of my life.

I am building a wonderful body of work.

My subject matter and style is becoming more refined.

I realize that this is becoming part of a bigger goal, part of my 5 year plan.

Goals help me stay on course and definitely see growth.

Art20K has helped me stay focused.

Having a measurable goal, an attainable, relevant and trackable goal, has made it very rewarding.

Making this goal public has given me reinforcement and encouragement.

An effective goal spills over to many parts of your life, it changes you.

I have risen from I can’t do it to “I Did It”.

I feel unstoppable.

I want to thank you all for your continued support.  It wouldn’t be the same without you.  I realize that I need my community to help me continue my goals.  A goal unshared becomes a meaningless goal.  It is with much gratitude that I am able to share with you. Thank you!
