Gotta have ’em.
Unfortunately, I’m not terribly good at reaching them. My initial enthusiasm soon gives way to …meh…
Although I seem to be doing pretty well at this blog challenge, maybe in part because of my interest in reinvigorating this blog that I have allowed to go fallow.
Maybe because daily posting has made it part of a routine — a habit (seriously, I’m typing this on the kitchen counter while I make dinner).
I have recently stumbled across a couple of resources that talk about creating habits or systems that you put in place and work at daily, rather than these big ass goals that are waaaayyyy out there and obviously not something I need to worry about today. After all, I’ve got shows to binge watch and the internet isn’t going to read itself.
The first resource I want to mention is Gretchen Rubin’s book, Better than Before. She talks a lot here about forming positive habits.
The second is this blog by James Clear, Forget About Setting Goals. Focus on this Instead.
So, this is the direction I’ve been taking lately.
Everybody can’t be that “measurable goals” person!
I find it fascinating how many different ways people go about achieving their goals. Some need that daily word count while others just keep pushing on with bursts every now and then. Good luck with the Challenge!
Found your blog through the A to Z Challenge – love your blog name – can totally relate!!! I also blogged about Goals but for children in their education – Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace
Yes, I go for small achievable goals, it certainly helps you concentrate, manage AND get there! Liz http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com
