This year, I’m all about setting dreams and goals for myself. In fact, just the other day, I posted my ideas on setting up dreams and goals for myself on my Inspirational Blog.
But, on this blog, I want to discuss my writing goals – not just personal goals – since this is my writing blog after all.
Okay, so I’m a huge believer in achieving goals that I have for myself. Me writing them down is more encouragement. (Previously, I haven’t been writing them down.) I’m experimenting with how lists now! Listen to the achiever who was buried deep inside of me! lol
I’m still a procrastinator, which I’m praying won’t keep me from obtaining my goals for this year.
But, there was something that I heard my pastor’s son say in church, and I asked him to send me the details, that had me thinking about my decision to write down my goals.
Dr. David Cole (Virginia Tech Professor) found the following:
People who wrote their goals earned 9 times as much as those who didn’t.
He asked people “What are your goals for life?”
80% didn’t know.
16% have goals but never have written them down.
4% written their goals but never review them.
1% wrote goals and review them on a weekly basis
Those 1% are millionaires.
Maybe they have the right idea. So, I’m trying it. I don’t know if I’ll be a millionaire, but why not? Why can’t I be one? I really just want to be a best-seller on something besides just Amazon. 😉 lol
My goals for writing:
- Finish Knight’s Academy Book 1 of my Knight’s Academy Trilogy.
- Find an agent for it.
- Get a big fat advanced check.
Why not? Why can’t that happen to me? I’m believing that it will!
So, why not write down your dreams/goals and review them everyday. Seriously. What can it hurt?
I’ve decided to write down my goals on a desktop wallpaper because I know for a fact that I’ll see them more that way! I’m made one up to share on my blogs. So feel free to save the picture here and edit for yourself!
I wish you success in your writing life and daily life!
