Setting Goals

Posted on: August 19, 2013

I think it is important for people to set goals, no matter where they are in their life’s journey. Goals keep us moving forward, giving us something to continually strive for. Part of setting goals is, in my opinion, sharing the goals with others so as to help make you accountable. It is one thing entirely to say to yourself, I’m going to lose ten pounds this month. It is another thing entirely to tell your family you are going to do it and have them keep after you until you reach the goal.

With that in mind, I wanted to share some of my own goals with you. Perhaps you can help with keeping me accountable?

Writing Goals

60 days — finish the long-term prepping guide. This one isn’t negotiable as I’m under a contractual deadline.

90 days — finish secret project (code name Countdown). Again, deadline is related to the contract.

120 days — finish secret project (code name Urban). Contracted, like the others.

180 days — sell at least one article to two different magazines (of which I have several in mind).

12 months — finish 3 separate novels, each of which are in various stages of completion.

Personal Goals

60 days — lose at least 15-20lbs. I’m not obese by any means but I have a few extra pounds that need to go, or at least be replaced by more lean muscle.

120 days — study for and pass the ham radio technician test and obtain license.

180 days — to at least have achieved measurable progress toward finding our homestead land.

12 months — sell house and move to homestead.

What goals do you have?
