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…

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…

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….

Nothing matters more than results

I read this on Seth Godin’s blog:    “Nothing matters more than results” Except for: Community, contribution and what our friends think Trust The perception of quality How much we like doing business with you Side effects and self-esteem. Also… doing work that matters, with people we care about. It seems like almost everything important matters…

Running Plans And Otherwise

It’s been a couple of weeks since I ran. I was hoping to resume last week but recovering from my not-a-glamp camping trip took the better part of a couple of days and then the next few days got so busy what with trying to catch up on all that I had missed. Hopefully, this…

Laid Back

Unbelievably, it’s goal time again and this time I am happy to post my new goals because just a  few hours into the new week, I’ve already started accomplishing them. I have a camping trip this weekend so the days before will be pretty consumed with planning for the trip and then executing the plan….

Crop Over

Right now in Barbados, thousands of people – Bajans and international revelers – have gathered for Crop Over. It is their annual holiday to commemorate the harvest – after months of planting and nourishing, it is time to reap the crop and celebrate the yield. I, too, planted something and it’s not quite time to…

The Week of The BookTubeAThon

Last week, as I usually do, I set some goals. Before I share my performance report, let me preface it by saying it was a challenging week. There was the readathon that I was participating in that had me writing and filming a movie among other things. Click below to watch that video which is…
