I’ve mentioned it before, but goal-setting kinda gives me hives.
I’ve been working up my goals since Christmas and my critique partner, Laura Drake, has thrown every iteration of them back to me with comments like: “They’re too nebulous” or “Not S.M.A.R.T enough.”
Since ROW80 is all about measurable goals, I’ve kept at it (even on the days when I wanted to shove my foot up Laura’s hiney).
I finally decided I’d hyperventilate less if I just set a few goals at a time, so here they are…
My Round 1 Goals (to be accomplished before March 28th):
- Margie Lawson’s Deep EDITS course (I just signed up for February)
- Crossfit 3x/week – I know I can achieve this, since I’ve been doing it for 4 months, but my eventual goal is Crossfit and Yoga for a workout total of 5 days. The first step is keeping my current schedule, even though most days I just want to go back to bed.
- 250 non-blogging words per day. That’s 1,750 words a week and I need that as the bare minimum to get my current WIP out by Mother’s Day.
- Finish reading “Save The Cat.” We had Jessica Brody come speak to us at my writing chapter and she really got my brain moving in the right direction in terms of structure. Must have MORE!!
