Every year I hear more reasons why not to make New Year’s Resolutions and fewer resolutions being made. I get it. Resolutions usually get broken by February and seldom picked back up. Guilt and feelings of failure follow. I’ve been there. Yearly, in fact.
One of the main reasons “they” say that NYR’s get broken is that a year is a long time span. It allows for lots of procrastination. So, this year I’m setting quarterly goals. Not just for my personal life but for my writing.
Since you don’t care how much weight I plan to lose or that I’m committing to singing karaoke for the first time, I’ll just share my Quarterly Writing Goals in the hope that you’ll join me. You can’t get better at writing until you sit down and get to writing in the first place.
My 2016 First Quarter Goals:
Not too many because they're hefty goals for me. I want to kick myself in the pants right off the bat and start strong.
I didn’t decide to create these goals out of the blue. In fact, I’m usually the type to say, “I wanna get this, this, and this done in 2016” and achieve maybe one of those things sometime in the fall. My inspiration came from vlogger and author Jenna Moreci who dispenses great advice in a fun way on her YouTube channel here. Thanks, Jenna!
