Since it's still January, I don't think I've left it too late to write about goals.
I'm a little bit nervous writing this post. I don't have the best track record when it comes to sticking to goals, so by putting them up here for everyone to see means risking public failure (which is not as good a motivator as I wish it were).
The reason I'm putting my goals here is because I know how awesome the writing community is at encouraging their peers and helping keep each other on track. Yes, you lot are awesome.
I've recently reached a whole new level of busy: I work full time, have just started an internship, am endeavouring to finish a novel, and will be starting back at uni in a month and a half. Whew! And I'm very good at time management, if I do say so myself, but only when that time belongs to someone else. At work I'm all about efficiency. At home I'm all about procrastination. So it's time to bring a bit of that efficiency home with me if I'm going to stay on track for 2012, and, in order to do that, I'm going to try breaking my goals down into manageable chunks.
- Finish all revisions on Blood Legacy (oh yes, the very same one) by end of February. I am well and truly over this book!
- Revise one chapter per day minimum.
- Start both of these end of Feb, plan time around these then.
- Work on these for a few hours every night, before jumping on Twitter/FB/Reader.
- Go for three jogs a week. I went for one last night. It lasted all of five minutes. Baby steps, right?
- Do some sort of 'other' exercise that's not purely cardio. Yet to be decided.
- Ummm... since we haven't been given our course outlines yet, I'm not sure how I'm going to go about this. Mostly just work.
In my head the list seemed longer than this. And now it's written down in small chunks it seems manageable! Excellent!
What are you striving for in 2012? Have you had to break it down into little nibbles, or do you have no problems facing a big goal head on?
