Checking in with 2016
You know, just a Friday night Netflix and chilling, and thinking of launching a YouTube career. But boy, that thing is more work than it appears to be.
Isn't this picture just stunning? It's from here
I have a pretty nice camera, I know lighting is your best friend, I also know video editing is to awesome videos as packaging is to any product. But what is knowledge if you're not going to act on it? Well, I actually did act on it; I shot my first video. It was a nice ramble and I guess you could say it had some potential. However, as I re-watched it six hours later, I realized that I roll my eyes upward when I'm talking and thinking at the same time. So in the video, I look slightly lost and unsure of myself. But hey, Rome wasn't built in one day, so maybe there'll be a second shot and third, or however many it takes to nail this thing. Or maybe I'll just add a tab on here and do with my blog, what I had hoped to do with YouTube: encourage and entertain.
In the meantime, I really want to do more with my blog. I want to get used to sharing things that matter to me and doing so with a decent amount of clarity. This is practice for that.
I'll leave you with something that has helped shape my first two weeks of 2016. It's a blog post by titled "Year Long Resolutions". This is how I used it: I read each point and wrote down practical steps to achieving each. So far, I think I'm doing okay.
How's 2016 going for you? What's going as planned and what's not? It's just day 15, so I guess you might not yet have an answer.
