I met my goal for today! It didn’t come about exactly the way I’d planned, but I’m still feeling good about it.
Here’s an update – let me know what you think of this as a template:
RESULTS: revised all 50 pages! I marked up my changes on paper, and put about half of them into the computer. I’ve been making additional adjustments as I type in the edits, and I’m liking the results.
HICCUPS: my stated writing time was “morning,” but I didn’t begin until after noon
DEMONS: the evil twins - email and Facebook
LESSONS: it’s easy to get caught up in my “to do” list and let time get away from me
• urgent: must be handled NOW
• pressing: handle by “close of business” today
• timely: deal with in the next couple days
Everything else goes in the trash or a “tickle” file for later.
EXTRAS: name my writing demons and blog about it (with an update, of course)
What about you—are you setting goals? Naming demons? Strutting?
MY REPLY: No, this is not staged, and I’m not intending to fail tomorrow as a demo. Au contraire, my reader. I will hit my goal again tomorrow. Mark my words. (What, you didn’t think I could read your thought bubble?)
