So, 2012 is here. If the Mayans are right, we only have a few months left to do whatever we plan to while on this planet.
The natural follow up to this is a discussion on goals. (Never mind that I’m not really buying the whole Doomsday in December thing.)
Last year, I wrote a list of writerly goals. I met about half of them. But I’m not disappointed, considering I had a huge change in my work responsibilities and I had a huge battle with my mojo over the past couple of months.
This year, I’m not going to write down goals. Why?
I don’t wanna.
Some may think that’s lame, but I don’t. I know what my overall goal is:
BUT, I can’t put a timeline to that. All I can do is try my best every day. If that means slamming out 5000 words or doing absolutely nothing, that’s gonna have to be good enough.
Tell me folks, what’s your approach to goals?
Be sure to send me a writerly related psychiatric question so I can address it here on Mental Health Mondays. Check out Lydia’s Medical Monday (she’s talking about telekinesis today. Cool!!!) and Sarah Fine’s The Strangest Situation.
