I did IT!!
Blogged EVERY day in November. I said I would and I did.
Am I surprised? Not necessarily. Not totally. But a little.
I averaged about 5 blog posts a month this year.............until November.
Setting goals is an interesting task. Small, attainable goals; that's what everyone says to do. That's what I tell people to do. But I don't always take that advice myself.
Having a task that I MUST do, makes me think of school. It's been 13 years since I went to school. I spent about 26 yrs of my life going to school. I was beyond burnt out when I finished. I've never wanted to go back.
What goals have I set for myself since getting out of school? I don't often set attainable, specific goals for myself.
I'll create a budget for myself and then never really stick to it 'cause who can plan for the damn car repairs or the water heater that goes out, and who really wants to restrict your grocery bills or the dinner out to celebrate your friend's promotion.
I don't want to set a goal unless I'm going to achieve it. Completely. Fully. I don't wanna tell everyone I'm going to start going to the gym 4 days a week. I probably won't do it. I'd rather go to the gym for a few months and then SHOUT it to the world........I did this HUGE thing.
What's next?? Maybe I could set a goal that I will do sit ups for 10 min. every day. If I can BLOG EVERY DAY, I could do that, right?
One small success at a time.
SHOUT OUT to every NaBloPoMo participant. Rachenbo says it best.
