2014 Review, 2015 Goals?

Hello my dear friends,

Β  Only a few hours left for 2014 to end and i can say that it was a very intense and interesting year. Last year i made a list of goals for the first time in my life, i had no idea how i was going to realize them, one year later, i can look back and be amazed that i made 9 out of the 10 goals happen! πŸ˜€

2014 Goals

  • Move out of my parents house (obviously number 1 priority)
  • Move to Austria and find a job or win the Lottery so i can stay 6 months in Austria and 6 in Greece ( A girl can dream)
  • Get a drivers license so i can have the freedom to roam around wherever i want
  • Support and promote my work more
  • Manage my time better = Work harder
  • Take more photos (so i can start making more posts again)
  • Make more videos
  • Kick some ass!!! πŸ™‚

I think it’s safe to say that 2014 was a great year for me, i put a lot of hard work into it and it paid off. Here i am now, writing from Vienna, one year ago i could never imagine how this could ever happen…

So let’s see some of 2014’s highlights

  • Self-published my first book in January 2014. β€œVisions” is a collection of 140+ nature related photos taken between 2006-2013.
  • I finally bought a smartphone and made an Instagram account! A real highlight, i know…haha! πŸ˜›
  • Learned a lot about social media and marketing and actually found out that it’s a field that interests me a lot and brings me joy.
  • My crowdfunding campaign β€œArt Sale for a New Life” got 101% funded, thanks to all the lovely supporters out there! β™₯β™₯β™₯ It was a real success and i’m so proud of that!
  • Moved to Vienna, Austria!!! Yay!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
  • Discovered a new and more confident side of myself. Austria seems to be the right place for me! Sorry Greece, never felt comfortable in your arms…

For 2015, i don’t feel the need to make a list of goals. The big change of scenery has been made and the road is paved for me to follow my natural evolution. I’m ready for new experiences, new views, new knowledge and i will try to express this fresh outlook through my art. 2015 is going to be quite interesting, i can tell you that πŸ˜‰

I wish you all a beautiful transition to the New Year!!! Make 2015 what you want it to be!!! πŸ€

Thank you for being with me on this amazing ride β™₯β™₯β™₯

  1. Hope you’ll find the right party to dance into the new year this night, Alex!
    I have the feeling that 2015 will be your’s! πŸ™‚
    Greetings from Stefan (who actually drowns in mountains of snow)

    1. Hello Stefan! πŸ˜€ Thank you for everything! β™₯ I’ll probably spend the night on Skype talking to my family and friends in Greece, open a bottle of cheap champagne and watch the fireworks online! Running alone outside in the cold at midnight doesn’t sound that exiting to me πŸ˜› But i don’t know yet, i have no plans, maybe i’ll end up outside πŸ˜‰ I wish you a great 2015 as well, with health, love and happiness! πŸ˜€ My best regards, from a less snowy Vienna.

    1. That’s how i like to think of it as well! πŸ˜€ Thank you for all your support as well and i hope that 2015 will be a year full of opportunities for both of us! Cheers to that! πŸ˜‰

  2. Happy new year Alex (all the way from Australia)! I’ve not long come home after watching Sydney asher in 2015. Hope you have a great time in your neck of the woods. All the best for the coming 12 months. May all your aspirations come true!

  3. Congratulations on achieving your goals! I think the secret is to do something small (or big) every single day that moves you in the right direction. And also to question the use of your own time. Asking the question: “Does this help me achieve one or more of my goals?” really does help to focus the mind.
    And you look so very happy in your photo πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment Rhys. You are absolutely right…I think we all fall into the trap of sometimes feeling so overwhelmed and end up freezing and doing nothing at all. In the past year i really understood the importance of starting by doing something everyday, even something small but it is still moving forward and it does pay off πŸ˜€ So i always try to remind myself that “little is better than none”… and it has really transformed my life! Wishing you all the best for an amazing and inspired new year! πŸ˜€
