Goal Setting

Hi folks. Happy New Year. 2010. Who knew it would come so quickly? I'm currently in the middle of a cross country move to Texas so my posts are going to be short and sweet for a while.

I'll spend the rest of month writing about how to create an interesting beginning to a novel, but today I will share about how to launch the year.

I think it is important that we have goals. So my first question, "What do you plan to achieve this year?" My next question, "How do you plan to achieve that?" And last, "Who will you get on your team to help make your goal happen?" I'm calling these three questions the mythic questions of goal setting. BTW, you have to WRITE down the answers to these questions to really do any good. Noodling is not goal setting. This is my driving strategy to get it done, and it works.

I hope that you achieve most of the goals that you formulate this year, and give yourself a break for the ones you don't achieve. See ya next week.

Now these quotes from some favorite characters come to me over and over and really help me move forward in life. "Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?" from Anne Shirley. Next, "I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow." from Scarlett O'Hara. And last, "We can still hop." by Lyddie (she misspelled hope).

Wait, what? I missed the memo about moving. That's what happens when you fall behind with blog reading. Did I read right? Are you moving to Texas?

Hi Kjersten, I am indeed moving to Texas. Not for a few months, though. My husband got a job (so grateful for that) but we have to relocate (I miss it already). I will still be here with my blog, and I will come back to the Northwest to visit....absolutely.
