Happy New Year everyone! I’ve chosen my word of the year for 2016, which is AUTHENTIC. I’ve started working on my Leonie Dawson Biz and Life planners. I wrote up my Round 1 goals – and then I got hit with a stomach virus this weekend. Yikes! Talk about being forced to slow down. Today I’m a bit shaky, but definitely on the mend.
Even so, I’m ready for an amazing 2016. So without further ado, here are my goals for this Round.
2016 Row 80 Round 1 Goals
Work on revising and editing The Door Is the Key book 1 (TDITK1). Finish the first pass of revisions using Rock Your Revisions. Complete re-writes and added scenes as necessary. Do the first complete proof-reading edit.
Re-read draft of Patterns in the Void and make initial revision notes.
Continue my craft & business learning. Participate fully in my In Arms Coaching biz program. Read at least 3 books about writing craft and/or making a living as a writer. Check out a couple of writer podcasts. Keep notes on ideas to use, and begin implementing them.
Finish planning for 2016. Finalize our Feline Dreamers road map for 2016. Make a 2016 vision board. Finish filling out my Leonie Dawson Biz and Life planners. Add timelines for goals to online and paper planners.
Complete various behind-the-scenes marketing tasks: Add my author name domain to my website(s). Add a Call to Action (CTA) to my Cultivating Self-Love e-book. Decide if we still want to create weekday Fae Musings e-mails for our Feline Dreamers subscribers, and if yes, do so. Add new folks to both of our mailing lists.
De-clutter and organize my life, creating beautiful spaces. Clean and organize my upstairs desk and filing cabinets. Finish our “punch list” for the rest of the downstairs project. De-clutter and organize the eaves. Create the photo gallery for the stairwell wall.
Focus on blogging. Post to my Starcat’s Corner blog at least once per week, Feline Dreamers each month, and on this blog twice per week. Write, edit, and submit monthly guest blog posts for Kind Over Matter. Submit a guest blog proposal to Mike Dooley’s site. Start and keep a running list of blog post ideas, drafts, and picture ideas.
Make inspiring art and music. Practice zentangling. Create new scrapbook pages and art journal pages. Take nature photographs to use on my websites and blog posts. Practice drumming regularly.
Expand my spiritual awareness and the integration of all aspects of my life. Pay attention to my dreams and keep records of them. Set intentions before sleep and upon waking. Meditate and do my chakra clearing daily.
Enhance my physical health. Devote time to daily exercise, including but not limited to walking, yoga, dancing, and swimming. Sign up for a membership at the pool for the winter. Stop eating sugar. Eat less in general.
Live AUTHENTICally in my daily life. Do things I love: write in my journal, read, do yoga, dance, spend time with loved ones, and express my gratitude.
