Goal-Setting Fever - Rock, Paper, Puppies!

Jan. 11th, 2007 12:43 pm Goal-Setting Fever

Okay, vacation is over! *boo*

I must say I enjoyed my time off. I need more, but too much makes me lazy.

So I buckled down and made some goals for this year. After I evaluated my progress last year of course. And calculated my percentage of success (why, did I do this – procrastination or boredom, you pick).

I accomplished 52 percent of what I set out to do in 2006. That's pretty good in light of all the obstacles I had in my path last year. Many of them are still there this year (darn those obstacles), but I am learning to navigate in spite of them. *cue inspiring music*

I'll spare you the long version and give you a brief look at my goals for 2007.

Blog at least once a month.
Maintain and finish Club 100.
Complete/Revise specified projects (one from fiction, poetry, screenplay and nonfiction).
Submit something before 2010.
Follow up on submissions before 2015.

Not to worry – my actual goals are much more specific (35 and counting). Just wanted you to get a snapshot, not put you to sleep.

I've kept up with my Club 100 since the first of the year. *go me* No record-breaking numbers there, but it's better than a big ol' zero.

The year is starting out right. I don't have to set any personal goals, do I? *pretty please*

You still accomplish a ton, goals or no goals. So, I give you permission to do what feels right this year. (I'm generous, me.)

Hang in there and remember that we're supposed to treasure the journey (I heard all that inspiring music you were playing and I couldn't help myself).

I made a submissions goal of 100 for 2007. Considering I did 47 in the last 2 months of the year, 100 should be doable. I'm at 3 right now, but...;-D So, see? You're not starting off any slower than I am. Whoo double hoo. LOL!
