New Goals & Goals Continued

Today’s Daily Post is:

We’re entering the final days of 2014 — how did you do on your New Year’s resolutions these past 11.75 months? Is there any leftover item to be carried over to 2015?

I learned a long time ago not to set New Year’s resolutions. I usually failed pretty early on. Instead I set little goals as I go along in order to achieve that one big goal at a specified time. That way if I fail I don’t feel so deflated. I can easily pick myself up and move on by either repeating the failed goal and/or rethinking and recalibrating it.

Having said that, I have some pretty lofty goals for blogging next year. I’m not sure if I will achieve them; but I have a plan, which is simply:

Plan early. Write early

Part of my 2015 blogging plan is:

  • 20/20 Hines Sight – Post every day
  • A Short A Day – Write a short story every day
  • The Broken Spine – Hold fast to the existing Editorial Calendar
  • Visit and comment on at two blogs per day

And believe me when I say that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I have lots of blogging goals and thinking about them makes me a little uneasy. I’ve thought that perhaps I should abandon some of them, but the overachiever in me says that’s not an option. Most of them overlap in some way shape or form, so I think when I connect the dots and find all the common denominators my blogging goals will be a lot less daunting.

I’m still in the planning stages of how I’m going to make all of this work, to include having some semblance of a social life, working out, white water rafting, while looking for a job in Colorado (already know where I’m staying), maintaining my sanity, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.

Now my personal life goals are a lot more complicated than my blogging goals, which needs to a separate post all together. I’ll sum up a few of big ones.

  • Finish Master’s in Adult Education
  • Find job in Colorado
  • Move to Colorado

Hopefully accomplish all of this in the next 6 months on top of my blogging goals, on top of maintaining some semblance of a social life, so forth and so on. And that’s that, I think.

  2. Wow! I wish I can commit to blogging everyday. I’ll think of an achievable target to keep me going even if I get busy with work. 2014, I planned to go back to writing and I’d like to believe I did good but inconsistent. Plan early. Write early. Thanks for the reminder.
