Goals for December and 2016

Goal-Quotes-40For the past few days I’ve been thinking about my goals for December, and next year. What do I want to accomplish? What would I like to change? What do I need to work on? The ideas come to me so it’s time to make a list:

  • Write every day, whether it is 1000 words or 2000 words, I need to write every day.
  • Writing: 750 words/morning pages, journal, novel, blog
  • Art Journal: December prompts #onebookdecember
  • Organize the closet in my writing room
  • Clean out my desk and organize
  • Get Mr. Viktor’s Christmas present
  • Get Mr. Rockstar’s Christmas present
  • Work on outline/storyboard
  • Make a schedule for videos and blog posts. (Figure out whether I want to make writing videos once or twice a week, art journal video once a week, random coffee chat video once a week, which would equal 4 videos a week, perhaps talk about books I’ve read or am reading in the coffee chat video. Now just to figure out which days of the week for what…)
  • Exercise daily.
  • Eat healthier.
  • Finish Novel by the end of January, mid February.
  • Participate in NaNoEdMo in March.
  • Get new glasses (save money).
  • Start DIY house projects in January.

That’s a good start. I’m not finished, but I’ve got some of the basics down. Now it’s time to get those ideas down in my journal and fine tune them into small to large goals, and make a To Do list.

    I love that quote. These are good goals. I need to get back to my morning pages (Artist’s Way). They’re really good for getting focused. I have a tendency to not get good and focused until mid-late afternoon/early evening. Morning pages/journaling might help with that. I would love to increase my daily/yearly word count. I definitely want to do NaNoEdMo and both of the Camp NaNos. Choosing which projects will be tough but as long as I’m working, it doesn’t really matter. πŸ™‚

      Thanks. I have been writing morning pages but slipped off the wagon when it came to reading the book, so now it’s back to reading the book and doing my morning pages. πŸ˜€
      It’s time to write. πŸ˜€

    That’s already a big to do list. So I hope you make some well tuned smaller goals, that help you along the way.
    I find it superb, that after November, you just get behind the desk to write again. That does show the spirit! Good luck on those tasks, I’ll keep an eye out for them πŸ™‚

      Thank you. I have smaller goals, that was my brainstorm list of what I want to accomplish. I am breaking those down this month for the goals for next year, and working on things right now for this month. I did take a break for about a week. I needed it. Though I felt guilty and missed writing so I did write bits and pieces of ideas in my writing journal. πŸ˜€
      Having goals and to-do lists help keep me focused, having ADHD means I have to work on keeping on task, staying focused. Procrastinated makes it harder for me to focus, so I have been trying to work on a routine/schedule that allows for breaks to do things like exercise, read, watch a little television, work on house projects, and still write. That’s the hardest part for me: not procrastinating and finding balance, finding a routine that works and sticking with it.
