Set goals for your writing in 2009 now. Today. You can't achieve goals you haven't set.
Firstly, do a review of 2008.
Which goals did you achieve this year? Where are you in your career in comparison to where you were at this time last year? Are you moving forward in your writing career? Are you pleased with your sales and income?
Before you set your goals for 2009, ask yourself what your overarching goal is for next year.
An overarching goal is a goal which encompasses lots of smaller goals.
Your overarching goal could be to leave your day job and to write full-time.
This is a big goal and you'll need to set lots of little goals in order to achieve it. However you don't have to set all the little goals immediately. Just set those goals which seem apparent to you -- that is which seem as if they'll lead you to your overarching goal.
For each goal you set, set a deadline for its achievement. For example if your overarching goal is to write full time in 2009, you could set a goal to have six months' worth of income in your bank account by August 20, 2009.
Once you've set your goals with deadlines, create tasks and enter them into your calendar program. Start working toward your goals today.
How to achieve your goals
Here's how to ensure that you achieve your goals. Use visualization and affirmations. Every successful writer I know uses visualization and affirmations, because they work. They focus your mind.
Used in the right way, these tools will ensure that you set and achieve all your goals.
I've just set up a brand new law of attraction website. The site is totally new, and I hope it will help you to achieve your goals in 2009 and beyond.
Happy goal setting. :-)
