It’s the middle of September already! Amazing. I think September is a great time to review the goals you set for the year to see if you can still meet them before the end of the year with a little added focus and effort. If you wait too long to look over your set goals, you won’t have enough time–so don’t wait!
I looked at my goals this week and evaluated how I was doing. There was one goal–“to establish a reading rhythm that will allow me to keep up with my submissions”–that I haven’t been doing well on at all. I decided this week that I will be setting aside time each Wednesday to read. It doesn’t seem like a big thing, but in my job reading can actually become overwhelming! And it is much worse when the submissions all start to back up. I feel the pressure of having so many people waiting on me. So Wednesday I read and it felt wonderful to move toward catching up. Planning to spend time reading each Wednesday is what I should have been doing all along. Now I just need to stick with it!
Reviewing my goals was beneficial for me! I also saw the areas I’m doing well in and that was an encouragement.
Is there an area you are doing well in?
Is there an area that still needs some work?
Is there something you can do to move toward meeting your goals?
