Normally I get things done one of two ways.
1 Most common: "Oh my God I have a deadline, holiday, whatever coming and I can't put it off any more."
2 Not nearly as often: "It's that time of day, I'll do..."
3 Sporadic but consuming: "No, I can't sleep now, I must write. The voices, they won't leave me alone."
For A Round of Words, I'm going to try something different, more along the lines of #2. So here are my goals
Write 1000 to 2000 words a day
Spend 4 hours, writing, editing etc.
Plus an hour a day networking and advertising.
Plus once a week updating my website and blog. Spend at least an hour here.
Six days a week. Because this is my not just my life but my passion.
So why isn't it easier to get all that and more done? If it's a passion shouldn't I be setting goals to get the house work done? Ok, honest, I need help there too. My big time eater? Everyone else's great books. I love to read, obsessively. So that will be my reward for each goal I meet.
I'm off to get those words written.
