An Update On My Personal Challenge

About a week and a half ago, I posted my personal challenge to get all of my photos into Historian, rated and tagged, so I can move on with my projects.

In the process, …

  • my vault crashed,
  • I had to restore to a version from ten days earlier (before I did all of the work the first time),
  • I had to go back and re-import all of that content from cameras, phones, and Dropbox AGAIN,
  • and then, I just had to go through and rate and tag it all AGAIN!

Ok, whew!  That's done.  I still managed to do it in my goal timeline, but I have to admit, if I hadn't told you all that I was challenging myself to do it, I wouldn't have.

So, here's the next challenge:  I realized in the process of doing all of this (and looking for fun things that I plan to make as Christmas gifts … more on that soon) that I never created a book for 2013!  My final printed pages are in my 2012 book.  I have about five months of 2014 drafted in a photobook, but 2013 is homeless!

This means that I have to get my act together.  It's time to start thinking about my Christmas list, but I know that if I don't work through 2013 soon, I won't remember half the things about it.

The new goal is: Get my 2013 photos into a photobook by October 31st.  That's the whole thing, ready to order.  Today's only October 2nd, so that gives me roughly 4 weeks.  Will you help keep me accountable?  Do you need to set a goal, too?  If you want to join in, leave a comment and we'll cheer each other on!

Until the next time, Enjoy!
