“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
Have you ever felt you were running out of time? Have you felt a sense of urgency to get something done? How do you reign in the galloping horses in your mind and get to setting a plan to achieve your goal?
I have many thoughts and ideas but find it hard to concentrate on one thing. I work on this a little bit, that a little bit… but this isn’t always productive because it takes a long time to fully accomplish one thing. So I think what I will focus on doing now is setting goals and creating timelines of when I want to accomplish a task. I’ve been told for years the importance of setting goals; in my mind I set things I want to accomplish but rarely have I put them down in writing: to make it real, concrete.
For example, I want to publish a book. I haven’t decided if it will be a children’s book, a fictional novel, a first person documentary, etc. What I’ve been doing wrong is playing out stories in my mind but not putting them in writing, or starting on one story but not working it all the way through. So what I’m determined to do is create a writing schedule and make time to complete a book. This I know will make me happy.
What are some of your goals? What steps will you take to reach your goal? Where will you look for inspiration?
