So how did I do?
My goals for January were mostly loose-form. I basically wanted to write every day, finish overhauling my published books, do regular social network updates, and make $500.
I didn't achieve four of those goals.
Mainly, though, because the one I did reach was a doozy.
The line graph is my monthly income goal. The bar graph beneath is the amount I've generated in a given month.
To put that into perspective, each bar corresponds to the amount of income I've generated in every month since September. And in January, I more than doubled my previous record. And I basically did that in fourteen days.
Which is why my writing graph looks like this:
Womp womp womp.
Started off very well, with me actually breaking my daily writing record by writing 10k words. In fact, I started off so well that I was convinced that I could write 100k words in But that was before the jobs started coming in.
I hadn't expected my work-load to grow like it did, so I didn't plan accordingly, and in the end, my writing went stagnant.
That said, I think I can get more done with proper planning.
Which brings me to my next point.
Goals for February
I have various goals that need to get done this year, but for this coming month, at least, I want to continue with my writing and income goals.
I'm going to share first priority between writing 100k words (or close to it) and earning $1000 in income in a month.
I realize that both of these are actually crazy big goals, but that's why I'm picking them. They make me reach.
More than that, I actually think I can make it.
It's all in my planning.
So the short term plan for now is to figure out a structure that will actually help me get both done.
How are you doing? Did you set goals?
