As we look forward to 2007, our goals can seem overwhelming. We need our dreams and our goals to aim for, but how do we get there without feeling it’s like that unreachable star? Writing an 80K novel can seem daunting. Even finishing a short story can seem impossible with everything else going on in our lives.
I attended a workshop given by Barbara Samuel this fall and during her goal-setting workshop, this quote really struck home with me. “What can I do TODAY to help me reach my goal?” Yes, today. Just think about today.
Even as we look at where we want to be 5 years from now, or at the end of 2007, we can break down our goals into bite-sized pieces. 500 words. A single page. Reading a chapter in a writing book. That’s something we can do today.
So…”What can I do TODAY to help me reach my goal?” I’m writing a thousand words. How about you??
