The 2015 Project 365
The Project Debrief
I completely failed at my project 365 for 2015. I set the bar incredibly high, and then made it really hard to succeed by requiring myself to catch up whenever I fell behind.
The idea was to have a complete collection of 365 pictures from the previous four years of world traveling by the end of 2015. As I write this, it’s November 2015. I needed a kick in the butt to get editing through the archive of my recent travels, and I got that. But posting them all proved to be a little much!
Since the beginning of 2015, I’ve learned (the hard way) that I want to spend my adult life doing projects I love (which this was) that are also sustainable and self sufficient (which this was not).
The pictures below this row are from that abandoned project. What a cool learning experience! The pictures above this row are recent.
Now I run a vlog, a blog, two businesess, and I post pictures regularly. I actually LOVE the structure I derived during this Project 365, and I plan to continue using it. The difference between now and early 2015 is that I have (in theory) learned not to bury myself with unrealistic structure.
Going forward I will post pictures here and on every other social media platform, just like in this Project 365, but I will do so based on what fascinates me, however I like, with no stated schedule, and I will do so only if the return on my time is higher than the opportunity cost.
