So… It’s 2016. The last time I completed a post on WordPress was in 2011. That’s 5 years ago, and I’m not even sure why it’s been so long, it’s not like I’m a professional writer or anything but I remember my first post, which gave me pride and joy because it was all mine – my idea, my time, and my energy and most of all, my creativity.
A lot of things have changed since that day in 2011, but many other things remain the same. I should set writing goals for this year, perhaps that will help me achieve more in this particular area.
Goal setting, a very important aspect of life and living. Often times, we overlook this, and wonder why we are drifting in a world that keeps getting smaller (thanks to the internet and social media). We work hard, but at the end of the day are not able to get anywhere worthwhile.
I should start with a concluding part to my “Travails of a young heart” which by the way is a total work of fiction, thank you very much, some of my friends actually thought I was out breaking hearts and gloating about it on social media.
When you set a goal, you are able to choose the direction you intend to go in life. The best place to start is with personal goals, and how do you do this? Set your goals in a number of steps:
Step 1: Picture your goal and give it a time frame
Step 2: Break this picture down into smaller bits, or targets
Step 3: Plan – so you can start working on these goals
You can apply this to every aspect of your life- family, finances, career, education, physical, etc. Whatever you choose, you’ll need to keep your goals
Oh well, it’s my first post in 2016, so have a happy New year and don’t forget to set those goals.
