Looking Ahead

I hit “send” on Just Plain Murder just before two in the morning.  Phew.  One more to-do checked off my list…


Of course, there’s another project I’ve got to get into pretty much right away, but that’s okay. Being a contracted writer is a good thing.

Tonight, though, I’m putting everything on hold to have my once-a-year goal setting phone call with my buddy, Lynn.  This is when we talk about the goals we met and missed this past year, and the goals we’re shooting for in the coming year. Normally we do this in the days leading up to New Year’s Eve…but this time there was far too much busyness.

My biggest work goal this year is to secure another contract.

My biggest personal goal (and I have many) is to continue improving on the whole stop-and-smell-the-roses thing.

Do you have any goals for 2018? What’s your biggest?

    I hope you achieve all your goals this year!
    Since this is 2018 (my favorite number 18) and going to be the year of the dog (Chinese) my goal is to relax, enjoy each and every day, see the best in things, help my family & friends more. Also live like my dog – love unconditionally, live in the minute and see everything as a chance to be happy.
    Enjoy you phone call tonight!

    My goal this year is to work on a project that I started last year but sort of got put on hold through the holidays, and also we plan to redo the bathroom so this should be interesting. Personally like you I plan to take more time and just enjoy.
