Last week I set a goal for myself and have decided to use this space to keep myself accountable. My goal is to spend 30 minutes reading and 30 minutes writing each day. Here’s how I did last week:
I created this log for the rest of the year. Each day that I meet my goal for an activity, I will put a check in the corresponding box. It’s just the kind of thing that this list loving person lives for!!
You can see that I started out strong – Monday through Thursday I wrote and read for a half hour each. Friday, I only read. Through the weekend, I did neither!
Here’s my strategy for this week: convince myself just to start. There was one day last week that I really didn’t want to write, but I decided to just open my Word document and see what happened. I did some editing and added a few paragraphs… it wasn’t QUITE 30 minutes, but it was definitely better than doing nothing. And I gave myself credit for that day because I like to be kind 🙂
Do you set reading and writing goals? How do you structure yours? And how do you hold yourself accountable??
