This might seem counterintuitive but I personally feel that setting any sort of goal, especially a growth one for your creative projects is a misstep. I’ve got a few projects and I set no goals. I plan to create, as in I’ll have a list of things I want to work on but I have no goals around follower counts or blog stats etc. My current projects have just all grown organically over time.
As someone that has their own mental health challenges for me it’s better to work on what I enjoy and not set myself up for failure. Comparing to others or not hitting certain growth numbers can lead me down paths I don’t want to tread.
Do you set yourself goals?
