I've been thinking a lot lately about goals, and achieving those goals. Right now, my goals are to be more organized (both physically and mentally), to get into better shape, and to write the novel that's bouncing around in my head.

For the organized goal, I'm going to make myself completely organize my room today. Tomorrow I'll be taking a couple of boxes to Goodwill, some to the storage unit, and some to the trash. I will file things and label things and let the OCD part of my personality run rampant. I will go through my computer to get rid of all excess digital baggage. And then I'm going to set a personal schedule for my days.

For the better shape goal, I'm going to put a time to work out every day on my schedule. I will get up on time and go work out. With Plunder Bunny working from home and having the same desire to work out, I may even have an exercise buddy some mornings. I will also make sure I have good stuff on my iPhone to watch/listen to so that I don't get discouraged by mental boredom.

And the writing...the writing is the biggest part for me. I need to find my voice. I need to hone my skills. So I will be blogging daily, doing writing exercises, and continuing my Discovery work. I will have time set on my schedule for writing, I will have a place for writing that is clutter free, and I will study the books that I have so that I can become the most skilled writer I can be.

I have goals. I have plans of how to achieve those goals. And, by gum, I will succeed.


  1. Wishing you the best of luck. I have the same goals, and blogging has been helping me with the writing part. The organization and exercise fairies have yet to appear and help me out, but there's always hope, right?

  2. Great goals, we shall cheer you from afar! (Kelly, when those organizational and exercise fairies get done at your house would you please send them my way? Thanks.)

  3. Good luck.
    Some things from my last sort/purge have been maintained, the rest... not so much.
