At this point, we’re more than halfway through the year, and I’m feeling the need to get myself organized so… Read more August Goals
I think I want to keep my goals for January simple & straight-forward; my way of easing myself into the new year. A lot of this month will be focused on planning and preparing for the rest of the year but I do still intend to get some writing done.
Without dwelling on the failures of 2017, I’m trying to make my 2018 goals reflective of what I learned from last year, not just what I ideally want to accomplish.
A lot of things that I wanted to get done this past year didn’t work out. I could go on about what I think my failings were, but I won’t. Not that I don’t think there’s value in acknowledging my mistakes, quite the opposite, but dwelling on them doesn’t do me too much good either. I’d rather close out the year and move into the new one on a more positive note.
I know that there’s still technically a few days left to go but the sad truth is that I’ve already written this month off. Not good but I figure I can either brood about what went wrong or I can acknowledge what went wrong and make sure I avoid doing the same thing next month.
I’ve been a bit reluctant to commit to a new goals list for this month so far. Not because I’m having difficulty coming up with things that I want to try and accomplish. Actually, it’s more the opposite.
I have to admit, I was not looking forward to examining last month and now that I come to do so, I find that I was right.
I’m going to start off with an assumption but I think it’s a reasonable one. If you’re a writer, then you most likely have a web page or blog of some kind. The question is; what are you posting on it?
This one is going to be a little trickier than normal since I have some time away to factor into my plan. How this is going to effect things is open to some debate but I’ll be prioritising family & friends over the writing.
I hadn’t really intended to, but I ended up taking a few days off. While there is still a part of me that feels guilty about doing so, the greater part of me is actually feeling a lot better for having done so.
