I know I have set lots of goals before and also I know I tend to set too high goals for me to achieve. What can I do, I’m a dreamer.
Goals are good for getting your purpose on doing something and not falter (even when I do it often) because you want to achieve it and will stick to it.
The problem is when there is no punishment or reward at the end of it, then you may think that it doesn’t matter that you can get a longer deadline. Now my Bestie Stacey and I have this goal/punishment/reward monthly. We set our goals and share it with the other and we have to stick to it.
When you have a friend at the other side also wanting to achieve her goals it’s easier to work harder. Also if what you put on the other side is a punishment that will be hard and a reward you really want to have. For us a day of only reading and not working on anything else, a great reward.
My goals for this month were:
· Read four books (only read 1)
· Catch up in my critiques (this I did)
· Finish drafting my contemporary novel and be halfway revising ( I think I’ll finish drafting on Friday L)
· Revise the first chapters of my previous WIP according with some feedback ( I haven’t got to it)
I have to say that it was a busy month; I’m taking a deep editing course that has lots to learn and work on. But these are the goals I set and I have to face the consequences. I have to go through my punishment of being a good girl and figure what to blog about every day of this week.
I hope this time I set more realistic goals for myself.
I’d love to know about your goals!
