This year, I discovered that I’m very goal-oriented. I think it comes from so many years of failing at every goal.
During my college years, I’d set goals and treat them like wishes. I’d write them down and never put forth any effort which ultimately led to disappointment.
With age and work experience, I know how to better set realistic goals and break them down into smaller, achievable milestones.
With the coming new year, I do the cliched reflection and goal-setting all the other nerds are doing this time of year. My theme is 20 for 20. I’ll set twenty goals for the coming year.
Goal number one: finish and publish another novel.
