FOCUS is also how I have been taught to train the dogs. If they are focused on you, the rest will follow.
I have pulled out several projects that have been waiting for some attention and finishing them.
When I take classes, I never seem to actually complete everything so before I move forward, I have pulled them out and I am working on those also.
I rarely design my own things because I always feel I have "other" stuff to work on. I have found a couple challenge blogs that I am interested in and I hope this will help me to "FOCUS" on something specific that I want to create and get the ball rolling for 2013.
