2019 Goals and Resolutions

Steve Harvey said your vision board should have some dreams so big, even you get scared imagining them coming through. When I think about my big plans, I get a little overwhelmed but it also motivates me to work towards them. But as I make my towards those big scary dreams, I include the following in my…

2019. Word!

Happy New Year! If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, I can’t believe it’s a new year already, I’d be rich. In fact, by the time you’re reading this, 2019 would be at least a day old. Nevertheless, I thought I would take some time at the beginning of the brand…

Day 81

Counting today, there are 81 days left in 2018. I set a lot of goals at the beginning of the year that, unless I make some drastic steps, I won’t meet. But maybe this is the time to take those steps, stop fooling around and do the things I said I could do if I…

Thirty Two Point Nine

Thirty Two Point Nine. We are 32.9 % of the way into 2018 already. Four months in, the year is approximately one third in (YIKES) but since the distribution of days isn’t even throughout the year (31, 28, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31, 31, 30, 31, 30, 31) at this point, we are 120 days into…

March (and February) Madness

In February, my goals were simple (I talked about setting them here): Write something every day in February. I did – well, that is, until I got the flu. But I have an outline for a couple new stories, built from my burgeoning daily writing habit. That’s something to work on. Submit SOMETHING to be…

Thoughts On Sunday

I am planning the week ahead but also dreaming of the months to come. The present isn’t exactly what I wish it was but I know things will be better and there are steps I have to take to get there. Today in youth group, one of my students misbehaved. When I called her on…

February Goals

I suppose it’s a little late to be talking about monthly goals since today is already February 9th but there’s a whole lot of month still to go so why not! As I told you in this post, I haven’t been posting about my goals much because I wasn’t being very productive and I didn’t think…

The Number One Reason I Haven’t Been Sharing My Goals

There are lots of reasons… there will always be… but the number one reason I haven’t been posting about my goals on my blog is because I haven’t been working on them. I could tell you that I’ve been busy writing about books, doing the reviews that will bring in some cash or get me…

Read Your Books Challenge

I get a lot of the books I read from the library but in the past few months, I’ve been buying a lot more books than I did before. Blame it on the fact that I started publishing my own stories and want to support other authors too. Blame it on the fact that I started a…

Plant The Flag

Setting the goal might just be the most important step towards your accomplishments. Without having set the goal, how do you know what you’re working towards? How will you know when you’ve gotten to where you want to go? I set and share some of my goals on the blog on a regular basis. In…

10 Days In

Things have been a little quiet around here in terms of goal setting and goal tracking and I want to get back to it because I truly find that I am more productive when I post my goals and you guys help keep me accountable. Here are the marks I hit and missed in September….

365 Day Challenge Announcement

In my birthday post, I mentioned a 365 day challenge that I’m starting to make sure that I am maximizing my experiences and staying fulfilled. One of the things that has happened as I get older and a little more stuck in my ways is that I don’t meet as many people as I used…
