101 Things - Business Goals

Written goals are very important. Just the simple act of writing them down makes them more likely to be accomplished. In light of that, I've just posted a list of 101 things that I want to accomplish in the next 1001 days over on the Coates Place site.

Quite a few of those goals are goals for Divine Reflections Photography, so I'm going to post that part of the list here. I'll be updating the 101 things page as Crystal and I work on and complete these goals.


Completed goals will be displayed in maroon

Goals that are in progress will be displayed in gray
