The problem with goals is we often choose goals that are a conglomeration of a lot of little goals. This is what I would like to talk about: the breaking up of a big goal into little goals so that you can actually accomplish your goal.
My goal for this first round is to finish edits and release my short story/poetry anthology, Love or Lack Thereof. Already this has been broken into smaller goals of writing and editing each poem and short story to the best of my ability. With each story, I can break it down into smaller goals still: characterization, motivation, plot twists, conflicts. I know I need to have the pieces done in time to get to my editor for cleaning, and then I have to format the anthology for publication.
Are you having trouble with your goal? Did you make a goal that is now seeming a bit more than you can chew? What to do, what to do?!
Imagine you are the hero in the story of your life. You have a goal in mind for this round of 80 days which requires smaller successes and triumphs to accomplish it. You will have conflicts such as life events that will get in your way. How will you surmount these conflicts? Do you have a plan?
Either way, here’s a hug from me as congratulations for trying this ROW80 out in the first place. Good for you for trying. Now that we’ve gotten that taken care of, take a look at your goal and change it so you CAN accomplish it. Accomplishing something small is better than accomplishing nothing at all. Best of luck!
