Getting Things Done – Just Start! (Podcast 469)

Getting Things Done – Just Start! (Podcast 469)

This week I relay what is essentially very simple advice about getting things done. I’ll explain this in more detail, but when considering the implementation of a new workflow element, starting a new project, or jumping into life-changing situations, the hardest step to take is starting in the first place.

When I do classroom based workshop sessions, and talk to people about keywording images, I’ve noticed a common cause for why people don’t do this. I teach a highly optimized digital workflow, and keywording images really helps you to manage your image library and easily find stuff later, but some people see it as a huge task.

The ironic thing is that later in the workflow, people take their images and put them online, and add keywords at that point. They put them onto a stock site, and add keywords at that point. If you spend the time to do this early in your workflow, the keywords are there whenever you export your images, so you reduce duplicated effort later too.

People Hate to Keyword

People understand the benefits, but still neglect to keyword as part of their digital workflow, so I thought back to when I first started keywording my images and having asked a few questions, figured out the reason why, for many people at least. In the early years of digital photography, before tools like Lightroom came along, our workflow was often convoluted, switching between various applications, and this made it difficult to really settle in to a rigid workflow.

As better tools became available, we settled into what I’m sure many find quite a comfortable system of managing and working with our images, but those first few years left us with a large number of images that were not keyworded or changed in any other way that makes management of them easier.

We then learn the benefits of something like keywording, but the thought of going back through our backlog of images can be paralyzing. We sit there at a turning point, knowing that we should start to do something, but our backlog is looming behind us like a three ton pair of shackles around our ankles, stopping us from moving forwards.

I remember when Lightroom came out, and for the first time really, it became totally easy to keyword our images. I’m a big believer in doing workflow tasks as early as possible to save time later, so it made sense to start the process right there when you important your images, by adding some generic keywords to the entire set as you transfer them to your computer. Lightroom also gave us tools to be able to easily keyword individual images quickly, so all the barriers to keywording had been removed, and yet I still resisted starting for a while, so I considered why this was the case…

Lightroom Keywording

Lightroom Keywording

Well, I’d already been shooting for many years, and at the time, it just felt like a huge task to go back and keyword my work. The task felt so daunting, that I held off starting to keyword my new images, because unless I went back and keyworded my old work, only a tiny percentage of my image library would be keyworded. This might sound stupid, but that’s how it felt, and having asked around a little it seems that this is what puts at least some other people off starting to keyword as well.

Just Start

If we think about it, at that point in time, before I started keywording, 100% of my images were without keywords. Approximately 55,000 images, and not one of them had a keyword added. But I knew that with it just being so easy now to keyword, it was stupid to not just start, even if I didn’t go back and keyword my entire archive, and that’s what I did.

Let’s think about this though. I started to keyword in 2007, and at the time 100% of 55,000 digital images in my library were without a keyword. This was the paralyzing aspect. I have keyworded every one of my images shot since that point. I have created another 180,000 images since then, which means that what was once 100% without keywords, is now just 23% of my library. 77% of my images are now keyworded.

What’s more, the first 55,000 images that I shot become less and less important to me over time as I become a better photographer, so in reality, at this point it almost feels as though pretty much every photo I’ve ever shot that is worth a hoot, has at least some descriptive keywords against it, and that feels like a bit of an achievement, despite the gloomy outlook when I started to keyword.

It goes without saying, but if I’d never started, I’d now have 235,000 images without keywords. It’s important not to let the past paralyze your future. If you reach a point that you know you have to do something, really, just start!

Life-Changing Decisions

Of course, we can relate this to much more life-changing decisions too. Back in 2010 I had a big decision to make. I was in a day-job that was gradually losing it’s hold on me, as my passion for photography grew, and the photography business that I had been building as a side job was gradually looking more and more viable as a full time pursuit.

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this, but there was a turning point decision that I had to make that helped me to push myself over the edge, and that was my first expedition to Antarctica. I’d been given the chance to join an exhibition helping to teach photographers on a voyage down there, but because I was already running my Japan Winter Wonderland Tours, I wouldn’t have enough annual holidays left to do both. It was decision time.

Of course, we already know how that turns out. I agreed to do the exhibition, knowing that I would have to leave my day job to do it, and that’s exactly what I did, but it wasn’t an easy decision. My old job was as secure as jobs are these days, and I was being paid well.

I recall talking with my brother about the possibility of leaving my job, and being much more sensible than I am, he suggested that I wait until I retire, when I can do as much photography as I like. My reply was that it would of course be too late to live my dream. Our Dad died at 62 years old from cancer. Hell, I almost died at 44 from a brain tumor, just months after starting my business! There was no way I would wait until I retired to follow my passion. I’d lined up my ducks. It was time to take a blunder buster to them all.

Break it into Chunks

Even on a project level, people tend to hesitate to get started, through lack of time or the required skills to really pursue it. They look forward to the finished project and dream of the fruits of their labor, but the task itself—doing the work—seems so daunting that it stays in the realms of our day dreams.

Of course, if you don’t start to take action on your ideas, you will never finish anything. If your fear is about the time required to complete something, don’t set your sights on completion as your immediate goal. Break your goal into more bight sized chunks. You may for example set yourself a goal of photographing every power station cooling tower in your state or country, which of course could take years!

To make this less daunting, you might set yourself a goal to photograph just one or two each month. You could probably find out how many there are and calculate how long the project is going to take you too. Say there are 20 of them, you could decide to do two each month for 10 months, and then give yourself a goal of doing an exhibition during month twelve. If you simply cannot commit to that amount of work, do just one each month and set your goal for an exhibition at the end of year two.

Either way, breaking it down into bight-sized chunks is probably going to make the overall task less daunting and more manageable, and more importantly achievable. Don’t allow this planning phase to become your goal either. It’s important to plan, but spending all of your mental energy on thinking about starting is exactly what we want to avoid. Give your plans the attention they need quickly, then start, and you will at least then be making progress. It’s better to be moving forward in small steps than to sit around dreaming about the project.

Don’t spent too much time trying to find reasons why you can’t achieve your goals either. Even if for example, you feel that your current skill level isn’t quite where it needs to be to really do your project justice, you aren’t going to magically develop the ability to do something just dreaming about it, or spending countless hours on line researching it. Research may be necessary, but you ultimately have to do something to become competent at it, and only once you are competent at something can you continue on to become good at it, and then to possibly eventually excel at it.

Just Stop!

Once you’ve started and made some progress, hopefully lots of progress, there is another barrier that can be just as paralyzing as the fear of starting, and that is the fear of stopping! Once you get into a project, it can actually feel quite comfortable. You’re doing the work, making progress, but don’t let doing the work itself become the goal.

Of course, some goals such as starting a business don’t necessarily have completion as a goal. It would be pretty pointless starting a business with closing the business down as a goal, but for projects with a definite outcome, it’s really important to at some point send it out into the world. Be it a gallery exhibition, publishing a book or creating a hard copy or online portfolio, at some point you will have to stop, and send it out into the world.

Some projects will be iterative of course. We don’t build a working portfolio for example and then just let it stagnate after you’ve finished it. Indeed, part of your consideration when building something like a portfolio, physical or online, is its maintainability. Your first goal though would be to complete the first iteration. Only then will you have a portfolio, but it will hopefully put you in a good position to continue to update it for future iterations.

Courageous Abandonment

It’s really easy to think that because you are putting everything you have into something, that you are doing the right work. Don’t let simply doing the work become the goal. There’ll be plenty more work to do, to keep your momentum going, so try not to use your current work as an excuse for not moving on to the next project either. Just being busy does not necessarily mean you are doing the work that you really need to be doing at any given point.

Prioritization of your tasks and avoiding procrastination is very important if you really want to get a lot done. There may come a time when you have to put something on hold, or cut your losses and move on to something more important instead. Having the guts to abandon a project can sometimes take more courage than taking your project to completion.

The Role of Trusted Critic

Releasing your baby into the world is yet another daunting process though. Hearing negative feedback can not only hurt, it can be very damaging, especially when you don’t understand the motives of the person providing the feedback. It’s a good idea to get feedback from people that you really trust when possible, before going fully public. My wife, and sometimes a few good friends, are my trusted critics.

Sometimes my confidence in these people starts at the project conception stage. I share my ideas with them to see if they think what I’m cooking up will actually fly. There are no guarantees of course, but this can help to give us a reality check, and at the very least, it helps me to organize my ideas just by putting them into a logical enough order to be able to explain to someone else.

As I work through my projects, I sometimes get feedback midway, but always as the projects draws to a close. Sometimes it’s not necessary, and I am so confident with the results that I simply steam ahead, but even then, when time allows, it’s better to at least run it past your trusted critic or critics, to see if you haven’t overlooked something pretty obvious, which happens from time to time.

Whether you act on that feedback is still up to you of course. If you really are working from your heart, and you believe in your project, it can sometimes be necessary to steam ahead, even if that means making your own mistakes and learning the hard way.

Don’t be Afraid to Finish

It doesn’t matter how confident you are in your new project or product, when you are finally read to push the button, alongside any excitement you might feel, there is also at least some level of anxiety. When you put your baby out there you make yourself vulnerable to negative feedback, and that for most of us can be quite scary. Fear of the work required or fear of failure can stop us from starting, but the fear of finishing and making ourselves vulnerable can be just as paralyzing. You have to overcome that though, and as scary as it can be, take a leap of faith.

Leaping Snow Monkey

Leap of Faith!

After all, what’s the worst thing that can happen? Of course, you can be hurt. Someone could say that your product sucks! At the very least it might not generate all of the attention that you’d hoped. In fact, I’d say that unless you just produced something that went totally viral, it will quite often not do quite as well as we’d hoped, but hopefully it will do as well as you’d expected.

Whether your project is as big a success as you’d hoped or not, you will learn from the experience, and be stronger for not only having started something, but for having finished it. Whichever outcome you gain, once you release your baby into the world, it’s time to take stock, then rinse and repeat. As we mentioned in last week’s episode, the more you do something the better you get at it.

Learn from Your Disasters

Even if your project really is a total flop, a disaster, you’ve still gained a chance to improve. Try to figure out what you did wrong. Why it didn’t go as well as you’d expected. Try to step back and really view the wider picture though. The contents of what you created could be absolutely killer, but suffered from a lack of visibility for example.

There is a constant struggle to attract the attention of your audience, and with so much information being created every day, this is not getting any easier, so you have to figure out ways to get your word out, and give people a chance to see your work. Believe me, just building something will not guarantee that the audience or customers will find you.

Work for Visibilty

Try to find some way to attract people to your site, store or wherever you need them to be to notice what you want them to see. Of course, for me, although doing this podcast has become a part of my life, something that I look forward to doing each week, it’s also been my greatest enabler. It’s why you are here right now, and why some of you will for example take a look at my portfolios before you leave, or maybe even find yourself on one of my workshops.

Attracting more viewers of my work was my plan from the start, by providing photography tips based on my own real-world examples. The business that has grown from this is more of an organic development, but it has happened because I have spent at least one day every week for the last ten years creating something that I hope is of value. Whether you are running a business, or simply want to attract more viewers of your work, for the majority of us, it will rarely happen simply by building a web page and just hoping people will stumble upon it.

In Closing

So, to recap, as daunting as some projects may seem, it’s really important to get started. Put your hand to the wheel and start to make progress, however large a task it may seem to be. Break it into more manageable chunks if necessary. Have the courage to put something on hold to make way for more important projects, or have the courage to abandon it altogether when the need arises.

Find at least one, hopefully a number of trusted critics that you can rely on for honest feedback, and act on advice from them that clicks with you. Be careful of feedback from public sources where you have no way of understanding the motives of the reviewer, and when the time comes, send your baby out into the world, and be prepared to work for the attention of your audience, or even building the audience in the first place. And when your ideas don’t fly, turn your failures into successes by figuring out what went wrong, and avoid making the same mistakes in future projects.

Jack of All Trades, Master of Some (Podcast 396)

Jack of All Trades, Master of Some (Podcast 396)

I touched on this in another Podcast episode a few months ago, but today I wanted to take a little more time to reflect on how I’m finding it necessary to be a bit of a Jack of All Trades! Of course, to succeed, we need to master (or at least strive to master) some areas of our work, but more and more I’m feeling like we need a very wide range of skills to succeed today. This topic also feeds nicely into a discussion on the sustainability of doing work that you love, so let’s jump into this.

It’s been a bit of a crazy six months for me. My Iceland tour turned out to be a wonderful photography break in the middle of a very technical period that kept me way too busy, and fighting for time to work on other things that are more important, but all relied on me completing the ground work I was doing, so it’s been a bit of a viscous circle.

At the start of the summer I made a conscious decision to update my Web site, and bring all of the various domains I’ve created over the years into one place. I’m not quite there yet, but most of the ground work is now done, and it’s just a case of making time now to do the final changes in the coming weeks.

Invest Time to Save Time

There are a few reasons for the changes, but the biggest reasons are that I needed to reduce the time necessary to maintain my sites, and I also needed to implement a solid eCommerce back-end in my main site. Not having this was one of the reasons I had multiple sites, so both issues needed to be solved before I could move forward.

It’s ironic that I’ve spent a so much time each week for the last six months doing web site related work, so that I don’t have to spend so much time doing web related work, but sometimes we have to invest time initially to save more time later. I’ll go into a little detail on what I’ve been doing because I know some of you are interested in this stuff, and then we’ll move on to my general thinking about all of this.

Generally, I quite enjoy working with Web related technologies, and so over the years, have not found it difficult to invest time in setting up various Web sites for various reasons. The problem with doing this though, is that they all need to be maintained. A lot of the stuff I pieced together had to be heavily customized to meet my requirements, and this means that whenever an update for a base component came out, I had to spend multiple days migrating all of my customizations over to the new version. Sometimes I’d fall behind, and I’d just finish this work and another update would be released, and I’d have to do it all again!

The more sites you build of course, the worse this problem becomes. Trying to overcome this, a few years ago I started using WordPress and themes that I bought to create the Web sites, because WordPress is well maintained, and with the aid of the community of developers that create various plugins for it, WordPress can be customized quite a lot without the need to jump into the code.

One of the most frustrating things that I found with WordPress is that some of the coolest themes were not created to conform to WordPress standards, and I ended up jumping back in and having to customize the hell out of them to achieve what I wanted. I tried to avoid this when I bought the current theme called Rhapsody, which I switched to just before I left for Namibia in May.

The creators of the theme seemed pretty professional and have a great line-up of themes, but a component of the theme broke with the release of WordPress 3.6, and I’ve been waiting for an update for more than three months now. I actually figured out that the incompatibility was with a plugin that they bundled with the theme, so I bought a new copy of that plugin from the original developers and so I was able to update WordPress anyway, but it’s annoying that ignitethemes can’t get their acts together and release timely updates.

Of course, this leads to two issues that I’d like to quickly mention before we move on, but firstly, as you see, you can end up relying on third parties that are often not fully invested in their products, which can be frustrating, so looking for a professional theme that is well supported is an important step that I thought I’d cracked, but it turns out I haven’t.

The other part of this is that as you customize a WordPress based Web site, you can come across all kinds of incompatibilities and third party issues that most of the people developing WordPress plugins or extension have no control over. This is another reason that I’ve had so many problems this summer.

WooCommerce is the Bees Knees (Mostly!)

I decided to go with an eCommerce back-end called WooCommerce, developed by a largish company called WooThemes, that seem to do a reasonable job of their support and they’re pretty professional which makes a nice change. WooCommerce itself is basically free, and is very powerful straight out of the box, but WooThemes charge for their themes and various plugins for WooCommerce.

To enable me to take payment in multiple currencies I needed another third party plugin called WPML which stands for WordPress Multi-Lingual. Setting all of this up took over a month, but I got it all working and then setup a store with some fine art prints for sale, and that all works nice and smoothly now.

What I hadn’t anticipated is that WPML really slows the Web site down, so I had to also setup a new caching plugin and tie that into a cloud based CDN or Content Delivery Network, which took another week or so as I ran into more problems. Then, just as I thought I’d got it all working, WPML released an update that broke part of my Japanese Yen payment workflow, right as we were receiving a lot of payments for my 2014 Winter Wonderland tours!

Once again, I was painfully reminded painfully of the importance of compatibility between plugins, and despite promising to work on the draft of my third Craft &Vision ebook, I had spend an extra three weeks working with WooCommerce, WPML and even PayPal to fix a critical issue. After a lot of back and forth with all three companies we now know what needs to be fixed, and I knew enough about the problem to implement a workaround to keep things moving until the fix materializes.

Ever the Craftsman

Although there was a lot of stress towards the end of getting all of this implemented, I do feel pretty satisfied that I was able to handle all of these issues, and get to the point that I’d been working hard to get to. I enjoy being able to turn my hand to various jobs. I have always enjoyed making things, both physically and digitally now as well.

I think this is partly why I enjoy making my own gallery wraps, although this is after all pretty much laid out for us. But just the act of printing out the canvas, then laminating it, then selecting the bars, putting it all together, and now also stapling the canvas to the back of the stretcher bars. I just find this sort of thing fulfilling.

This of course is one of the main reasons that I enjoy printing so much too. I’ve mentioned before that I enjoy it when I wake up to find a print order has come in, and spend the first part of my day creating that print, then trimming it down to size, as I sometimes print on roll paper larger than the actual size of the print required. When I hold up that finished print it just feels so good, especially when I think that it’s going to be sent off to someone somewhere in the world who will get it framed and give it a home on their wall. This is quite a humbling yet exciting experience.

Trimming Prints

Trimming Prints

Thinking about it, the fact that I often print smaller sheet sized prints on larger roll paper led to the the creation of my Photoshop Fine Art Border Scripts that I not only enjoyed making, but having made them available to buy with my new WooCommerce back-end, have now become another source of income. Hopefully you can see the pattern evolving here.

I came across a problem and had fun creating something to overcome that problem. I enjoy the Web work, so I now have a powerful and flexible eCommerce back-end on my Web site, so I’m able to sell pretty much anything I want without much additional work. The scripts have sold pretty well, thanks of course to some of you, and that helps to keep the roof over my head so that I can continue to do what I love doing.

This is similar to what I’ve mentioned before about my main business model now. I enjoy doing the photography tours and workshops, and working to help people get amazing images in beautiful locations, so I’m gradually building out my tour program. On the tours I get to shoot my own images which I can sell as stock images as well as fine art prints. I also get to illustrate my own ebooks and magazine articles with the prints, and use these images to illustrate blog posts etc.

People then read my articles or blog and see the images and some are inspired enough to join me on one of my tours and workshops. It’s all starting to bind together very nicely in self-perpetuating business cycles.

Do What You Love and Never “Work” Again

That really brings me back to a point that David duChemin and I discussed in our last chat in episode 362 of this Podcast, when we talked about what David had said in one of his books, that there is a difference between a job and our work. Most of us use the phrase “going to work” to mean that we are going to a certain place to do our “job”, and yet a job is really something that we do to earn money to live.

We use the word “work” on the other to mean our photography, or doing some other activity that often brings us satisfaction and pleasure. The difficulty of course, as with any art, is in getting people to pay you for your work. Some, if not many artists, work their entire lives without finding a way to make a living from it, and yet we sometimes call the result their “life’s work”. If we can figure out how to do what we love to do and find satisfying, and get people to pay for it, in whatever size increments, we can realize the artists’ dream of living a life doing what you love.

And that kind of brings me back to the point, in that there have been a few times during this summer where I’ve come across issue that have taken week’s to surmount, and for the first time since I gave up my old job to become a full time photographer, I actually felt stressed. I have a tendency to get little bald patches in the little beard that I grow on my chin when I’m stressed, and for the first time in three years, I found two patches when I trimmed it recently, which was kind of a surprise, but kind of wasn’t really. It had been a rough month or so.

Now though, finally, the issues that I was fighting are behind me for now. I can proceed with the writing of my next Craft & Vision ebook, and launch a new micro-sales product that I’ve been planning for a while soon too. It’s all good stuff, and I’m having fun. Even the troubles I had with the system seem pretty insignificant now that it’s behind me, and I’m looking forward to plugging away at my task list again, advancing step by step.

I guess I should also mention once again, that I still feel very fortunate to have been able to calve out this life for myself that I’m still working hard to make easy, but nevertheless finding very satisfying. From the start I made a conscious decision to not do jobs that I don’t want to do, and not do jobs that I want to do for less money or alternative compensation than I want to do them for.

Ignoring both of these fundamental strategies will lead to dissatisfaction and the work often becomes unsustainable. Basically, if you do stuff you don’t want to do just for the money, you can find it difficult to put your heart and soul into the work, and if you don’t put your heart and soul into the work, it becomes a job. I know I didn’t leave my old day job just to do another job, so I think it’s worth putting some guidelines in place to stop it becoming one.

An important thing to bear in mind here though, as I’ve said before, is that you of course have to do work that pays the bills and turning away job after job without some other form of income is a recipe for disaster too. I was able to build up enough various revenue streams that I am making a living now. My tours, my Craft & Vision ebooks and magazine articles, my prints and other digital products now, and stock image sales are all adding up to keep a room over our heads.

It’s because of this that I’m afforded the luxury of turning work down that doesn’t totally mesh with my strategy. If I had not been able to develop at least part of this business before I left my old day job, I’d have been doing more work that I don’t like as I build my business, but this is exactly what I recommend others do. You have to do something to live, and if that means doing a job that you aren’t fully invested in while you build the business that you would love to do, then there’s no shame in that.

Billions of people around the world do jobs they don’t want to do every day. There are obviously a very, very small percentage of people that actually get to do what they love and make a living at it. As I say, I still have a lot of hard work to go before I will be comfortable and I’d be a liar if I said that there aren’t still time when I get anxious because something doesn’t go as well as I’d hoped, but at the end of the day, I’m confident that I’ll succeed. And I think this confidence is what you need to give you the courage to turn down the jobs that would pay you something, but not enough to make your chosen life and work sustainable.

What does all of this have to do with Photography?

So, what does all of this have to do with photography? Well, I’m going to add the Going Pro tag to this episode, because I think it has everything to do with setting up a business in photography. To come back to the title, I really believe that to succeed in business these days you have to be a Jack of all Trades, and be the master of some. The areas of mastery are the core competencies; the backbone of your business. Without excelling in these areas you aren’t going to succeed anyway.

But you have to be able to turn your hand to other areas or have the capital to be able to hire someone to do this work for you. I for example hire a tax accountant. He costs me $300 a month, and I pay much more at year end etc on top of that. Why? Because I don’t have a clue how to do that stuff myself. Sure, I’ve learned a lot about accounting and running a business in Japan over the last three years, but I never intended to try to do this myself. Not only because it would be too difficult, but because I don’t want to handle this.

I’m also fortunate that I have such a technical background, and can handle the sort of work I’ve spent a lot of time doing this summer myself. That can be a bane as well as a boon of course. It saves me the money required to hire someone to do it for me, but it takes up time that could have been used in other ways. This hasn’t been a huge problem this year, but as I develop more tours it will become one.

Get Help / Outsource When it Makes Sense

This is partly the reason I attacked the issue this year, but there will come a time over the next few years where I will need to start and hire people more regularly. I don’t think I’m looking at hiring full time very soon, other than my wife who is already on the books, but there will be more long term relationships with people like Michael Rammell who’s kindly helped with the old Podcast episode posting for example. As I continue to grow the business out I’ll definitely need help with tasks that regularly take up my time, and free me to work on other things that only I can do.

I think running a business has become as creative an exercise as being a photographer these days, and I’m having a ball working on mine, and hope that you find it interesting or useful to be kept in the loop like this from time to time.
