How is 2012 going for you so far? If you made a resolution, or goal, it's time to check on yourself to see how it's going, and whether or not you want to revise it. Remember the resolution I shared? I said I would try to schedule an appointment with myself, at least one day a week, to work on my book. Well....... it's not happening quite that way, so I need to revise that goal. Successful goals are specific and measurable.
Some obstacles have gotten in my way. Nothing bad, really. I've just had to make a lot of adjustments lately. Here's a visual that helps me. Maybe you will find it helpful as well. Are there obstacles that block the path you're trying to take?
I don't like scheduling things too far in advance. Last week I traveled, and this week I had company. A flexible schedule works best for me, at this point. So, here's my goal, now revised: I will make a chart and color in every individual hour I spend researching and writing for the book, aiming for at least 8 hours a week. That way, I can try to find moments here and there, if indeed I can't schedule a large block of time. Some weeks will be easier than others, and I will eventually know what it's like to spend a good chunk of time at the library.
Looks like today's post is mostly about me, and my goal, but I hope the lesson I've learned about being even more specific, and being willing to revise, will help you as well. I like the path pictured below a lot better than the one pictured above, don't you?
I hope this finds you all well and happily moving forward towards any goals you might be working on.
