2020 is underway, and there are a few tasks you should look at doing before you really get into the year. These jobs will save you time and give you a great starting point for the year.
In this vlog, I go through five of the things I do at the start of each year or anytime I have a holiday and need to get back to it. January is always a great time to get those pesky tasks out of the way. I also got a new coffee machine for Christmas (hence the intro).
I have never been a fan of the "new year, new me" mentality, nor the "my morning routine" mentality, but I must admit that a hard stop and start can be great for all creatives, if not to refresh mentally and physically, at least to start sorting out the logistics of your work and life. The best task that I completed this January was setting up an hourly working schedule; this may sound obvious to many, but it's something I was always too busy to do. Hopefully, I will have the opportunity to do a recap video on these to see if I was able to stick to some and if the prep work paid off, especially to see if my desk remains visible and doesn't vanish under a sea of paper, cables, and memory cards.
How do you like to start your year of photography?
