At its worst, January is a month that starts out with the panicky feeling that another year has passed and your creative dreams are still just that, dreams. It then continues on with too steep goals and a furious mantra of hustle. And then the months ends in burnout and a sense of hopelessness.
But at its best, January is simply a time for introspection and realigning your daily life with your long term goals.
When we do it right, the start of a new year can allow us to see the next step in our creative journey, and to actually take it.
