Shorter, More Focused Goals

Here we are, at the beginning of July, and also a new Round of writing. As it’s summer, which is traditionally a busy time around here, and since I have a lot to do, I decided to pare down my goals. I’ve kept the list shorter and more focused this time. I’m trying to integrate all the things I’m doing, so I won’t be continually trying to live up to unrealistic standards that I set for myself. I’m a Virgo, and we tend to be over-achievers, so we’ll see how well that goes…

Anyway, here’s the list:

2016 ROW 80 Round 3 Goals

Draft Heart of the Goddess book. Work on it daily (on weekdays). Finish the first draft (target of 120,000 words) by the end of August. I’m starting the Round at 44K words already written.

Re-read draft of Patterns in the Void and make revision notes. Make a plan for writing the revisions during Round 4.

Continue my craft & business learning. Participate in summer events offered by In Arms Coaching. Read at least 3 books about writing craft and/or making a living as a writer.

Build community for Feline Dreamers. Create and promote monthly online workshops. Do interviews for JV project and compile into an e-book. Complete 2 more videos for Lauren’s new website, by August 1. Sign up and prepare for presenting and vending at psychic fairs and conferences this fall. Write 4 new guided meditations.

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.

Enhance my physical health. Devote time to daily exercise, including but not limited to walking, yoga, dancing, hula-hooping, and swimming. Stop eating sugar. Eat less in general.

Live AUTHENTICally and spiritually 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. Pay attention to my dreams and keep records of them. Set intentions before sleep and upon waking. Meditate and do my chakra clearing daily.

  1. Eating less in general could–should be a theme for many… myself included. Avoiding processed foods and the extra added sugar in it definitely would be good for me.

    Sounds like you have a busy summer planned, Nikki. May it flow like water and soothe like a zephyr when finished.
