Is it too late? Setting goals for 2012

Is it too late? Setting goals for 2012

I have been talking about this over my newsletter and have been tweeting and sharing status on Facebook , my big plans of 2012 .
They are something which might be the same as anyone who is trying to set themselves up as artists and designers. Mine are also some really basic but big ones!

1- Make enough money to cover our house hold expenses , and buy and upgrade some of my basic house office supplies , including but not limited to
a-getting a Laptop (Since i broke my laptop’s screen)
b- get a new pen tablet
c- Get a new Printer.
2- Decrease my working time and give more time to my son who had started to fall a bit behind in his studies.
3- And last but not the least get a Licensing contract.

I have been exploring ground for flourishing as a freelancer , i quit my day job 4 years back and have gradually increased my monthly earning , by running my illustration store , selling illustrations through etsy , my designed Decals , getting some custom character illustrations .
My sales have gradually increased but not as much as i hoped it , I have had urges to hire help at times , to manage sites and blogs that i work on but there are things that i think , i can only , manage (which i realize is not a practical way to proceed forward ).
Keeping in view my goals for 2012 i have come across a crossroad in my career , where i am still exploring which direction i must take my work to.
Must i do character illustrations more , book illustration , expand my party invitations site or work more on my illustration store?

these are the questions that i would like to have answered.
Have you come across a cross road in your career where you find yourself lost?
Have you found your way? if yes then how?
