I know I've been talking about goals lately. And yes, I fully understand that it's easy for goals/tasks/lists to get out of control (anyone else feel exhausted by their to-do list . . . before six in the morning?).
But this is the perfect time of the year to set goals. I think there is something ingrained in us: September = back-to-school, new office supplies and goal-setting.
I don't know where I'd be without goals. Well, I could guess. Working yet another boring, un-fulfilling job while wishing with all my heart and soul that maybe, someday, I could take the leap into entrepreneurship. Without goals I don't think I could have ever made that jump. Without having a goal, all official and written down on paper I very highly doubt that my first book would have ever been published.
Goals are like good vacations: better planning = more fun.
I like to set weekly goals as well as short, mid and long-term ones in my writing business and include these in my business plan (well, all of them but the weekly ones).
If you set weekly goals like I do, I created this easy-peasy Weekly Goal Sheet. Feel free to download and share as you'd like.
Happy September goal setting!
