We all have big dreams but it is important that we all start small. If you look at a big dream and look at the whole picture it seems almost impossible for you to be able to travel that road. That is why it is important to break down your goals into smaller goals that are achievable. If we go behind goals that do not seem achievable we lack the motivation to pursue them however if a goal seems achievable we develop the motivation to push ourselves to achieve it and more importantly we have the confidence that we are going to achieve it.
We all would like to achieve our goals however we also keep putting them off telling ourselves that we have enough time to pursue them.
When we start small we should take whatever job we can get in the field we are interested in so that we can get experience. If you are interested in music you can get a job as a wedding DJ. You will have to understand all genre of music which will broaden your knowledge; you must cater to the needs of the bride and groom and try to please them at all costs, make sure that you carry business cards with you because this is a great place to market yourself and people might want to book you for a future event and you will also learn to be adaptable and make quick decisions because people here will be diverse and unpredictable after a few drinks they may ask for all sorts of different music and you must make the right decisions at the right time.
Another place that can be used as a stepping stone for people interested in music is at special corporate entertainment events. These are private events that are held for stakeholders, shareholders and all employees. These are big events like conferences or smaller events like private concerts or retreats. These events can promote a buzz around your business, an event like a product launch will make customers know more about what you are selling and also it will be eye catching, It will also give your employees a break and reduce stress levels because they will be enjoying themselves and they will be away from the usual business environment.
Plan your goals
Make sure that you plan your goals by writing them down and then come up ways to pursue them. Review your progress daily and if you do not feel you are achieving what you should be achieving then come up with new ways to achieve your goal.
There is nothing more important than family. During the vacations, when I was a kid we went out together with my cousins. Today all grown up, during the vacations we all come home to visit our family. There is big difference of life then and now but one thing will remain is the love for each other. Bonding every once in a while is really important. Here are some great ways to keep family reunions interesting and make people look forward to it.
Who doesn’t love movies? A family reunion is great for a movie marathon. It need not be only the cousins and siblings engaging in the movie marathon. Grandparents, uncles and aunts too must join the movie marathon. The best way to go ahead with this is to let each generation of family choose one movie to watch. No one will complain that they don’t like the movies. You can assure that everyone will enjoy the movie they are watching as well. Maybe to add more to the family memories try to bring back old movie footages if possible of birthdays, weddings or even previous family reunions.
If there is anything that everyone loves is music. Have a karaoke night! Get a karaoke jukebox hire and bring it to the family reunion. Make sure to have both the golden hits and as well the modern hits so that everyone can sing along.
Make sure everyone sings or maybe divide in to groups mixed of all the generations and let that grandparents decide who wins! You could hire slushie machine for the kids so the drinks can be easily refilled instead going to the kitchen to pour a cup for everyone.
Sports are one of the best things that can bring anyone closer. Divide the teams into a mix of different generations. A game of cricket or football to kick start the day and to add to that have more family fun games. You can find a whole list of them on the internet. Get many photos and head over back to the house for food and watch all the videos and pictures together. End the day with fellowship or singing songs together in a campfire.
You can organize a campfire and get everyone sit and share stories and memories with the whole family. Have a BBQ in the night. Sing songs around the campfire and end the day on a high note. Remember always have activities to get the whole family engaged so that everyone will have fun and remember the day.
