Free Creative Goals Workbook
As you start creating art and designs, and getting excited about the possibility of a creative career (or hobby!), you may ask yourself, “What’s next?”. Should I open an Etsy shop? Should I start selling my work on print on demand sites? Should I start trying to get an Instagram following?
The problem is, no one can answer that for you, because it all depends on what your creative goals are. Once you define your creative goals though, it’s easy to find resources to help you work on each aspect of your creative path.
I created a workbook that is designed to help you define your creative goals and create a plan for achieving them. If you struggle with choosing goals, don’t worry! I give you lots of prompts and ideas throughout the workbook so you can brainstorm and get all of your ideas down.
In the workbook, we’ll go through all the aspects of setting creative goals:
- your strengths and weaknesses as a creative
- your creative blocks (mental and physical)
- your creative role models
- ways to build your creative skills
- your creative habits
- your goals for 1 month, 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 5 years, and big lifetime goals!
Here is an example of one of the pages that will help get you in the goal setting mindset:
Setting goals and making a timeline has been crucial to my creative career, so I wanted to share my goal setting process with you!
How do you use the workbook?
You can use a free iPad app like Adobe Acrobat to see and take notes in the workbook. You can also use paid apps like Goodnotes and Notability. If you’re a paper person, feel free to print the workbook out onto paper and fill it out with pen or pencil!
I created a short video tutorial to show you all the steps here:
