2 DAYS left to WRITE down those 2012 goals!

OK. So we headed out for a little travel in October and when we returned, a tidal wave of client work clobbered us – for which we are immensely grateful! Nevertheless, it derailed our posts for a while. I’m hoping this has given you all a chance to catch up and implement some of the ideas and techniques we shared with you since our inception in May.

Now, it’s time to focus on 2012.

The biggest thing to keep in mind is that the best way to meet a goal is to set it in the first place.

  • Is your goal to write your book?
  • Write the intro or Chapter 1?
  • Is your goal to finish your book?
  • Is your goal to find an editor?
  • Is your goal to find a book cover/interior page designer?
  • Is your goal to figure out the whole printing conundrum?
  • Do you need to build a website?
  • Are you planning to start a blog tour?
  • Planning to start your own blog?
  • Is your goal to complete a book trailer?
  • Get started in video?
  • Is your goal to convert your existing book to an ebook?
  • Get your book up on Amazon?
  • Is your goal to hit best-seller status?
  • Are you looking to get on the speaking circuit?

Whatever your biggest want and desire may be, it doesn’t become a goal until you set it – and attach a date to it.

And then tell people about it. Find an accountability partner or team. And keep on plugging. If you fall down, get back up. If your goal is too big, chunk it down. If you lose focus, realign your vision by remembering why you set the goal in the first place. If you need to change your goal, change it! No shame. No beating yourself up. No problems – just change it.

Please let us know how we can support you. We’ll be back in business with regular posts in January!

Wishing you continued peace and prosperity in 2012!
