I Choose: Inspiration and Motivation to Make Goal-Setting Fun
Taught by Elise Blaha Cripe
What goals do you have right now, today?
Goal setting doesn't have to be boring. In fact, it can be exactly the opposite. This class will discuss effective ways to get out of your box and set inspiring and realistic goals. And then, you'll learn how to turn your goals (be they creative, mundane or anything in between) into something more tangible. Elise will also share ideas for taking photos and documenting your progress creatively.
This class works for goals of all shapes and sizes, and any timeline. You can use the ideas presented to create a separate Goals Album or as layouts to add to your scrapbook or Project Life album. After this class, you'll have go-to methods for documenting progress, but more than that, a wealth of knowledge about how to set goals and reach for them.
A Note From Elise
I am motivated by goal setting and have used my personal blog to document my progress through small goals (use my 50mm lens more!) and larger goals (run a mile a day for a month!) or even huge goals (create 26 different craft projects before my 27th birthday). I have found that tracking and documenting has been very rewarding and motivating. I am so excited to bring my experience as a goal-setter and project accomplisher, but also as an online workshop teacher, to Big Picture Classes.

This class is about thinking about your goals and then finding a way to document them that feels right to you. This supply list contains supplies that I have found to work well for me when I’m documenting my goals. I suggest waiting until you’ve gone through the class to decide what supplies are right for you.
• a basic tool kit
• 8 1/2” x 11” We R Memory Keepers 9 pocket page protectors
• 8 1/2” x 11” page protectors
• 12” x 12” We R Memory Keepers 4” x 4” photo sleeves
• BCW 20 pocket coin storage page
• Ultra Pro 8 pocket page
• printer for PDF worksheets
• camera (any camera will do!)
• date stamp
The documenting portion of this class will focus primarily on photo taking and journaling. Sample layouts of how to document your goals will be shared, but there is no right or wrong product for this workshop. Use what you have!
A "How-To Project" is a step-by-step eCourse that you can complete at your own pace. Comprised of video or audio files, PDF downloads, supply lists, and more, these eCourses take the guesswork out of planning and completing a creative project. This classroom will be available for access and download in your account until January 31, 2015.
Just follow the instructor's lead, add your own creativity and perspective, and then upload your finished project to the private gallery included in the online classroom.
How-To Projects do not include a message board to chat with fellow students or live interaction from the instructor. But you can always interact with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Enjoy!
