Okay, so I’m a little behind the curve here, but not too far behind! Of course, are we ever really behind? Time-wise, I would say in this case yes, as it is about mid-August, so I missed an entire month (plus in regards to the blog), or 1/3 of the quarter already. And this is one of the hardest quarters for me personally, with Reverse SAD and various good weather plans when I feel up to it…or force myself to go to, cause I was invited and need to get out of the house for my health!
Quarterly Goals for July – Sept 2019
- Make $1000 Per Month From Blog
- Make $1000 Per Month From Freelance Writing
- Make $1000 Per Month From Medium
- Declutter Each Room Of The House
- Finish The Rapture
Clean Up and Go Through All Email
That’s it for this quarter, and I am aware that some won’t happen – but it keeps me honest. They could happen sooner, they could happen later – it’s not under my control when they happen, but doing the things that can lead to those goals is under my control. And I’m really trying to narrow my focus on just those things that are within my control.
Yes, I plan on making money, from everything I do if possible. Not that I wouldn’t do the work for free, but in today’s world I don’t have to. I have a family to support after all, and money makes the world go round. That is just basic reality, no matter how I may wish it were different.
I also want to do a ton more creative things – which is why my Patreon just says creative things. I love so many different things and want to get back into doing some things that I love – like homemade beauty products and such. But I have to take things bit by bit else I will get overwhelmed with the thousands of things I would like to do. So right now, I’m focused mostly on writing.
I have been working on some of these goals since the end of July, but I kept putting off this post for some reason or another. I think fear is trying to derail my goals, and I won’t let it. Even if it means that I have to fight to put up a blog post that might be “too personal” for Karen, my ego, or just fearful of whatever. Most of the time I’m not even sure why I procrastinate, I just find myself doing it.
Things are a bit better mentally, though I’m plum wore out from everything going on plus trying to work on my own goals. But I’m striving, and that’s the important part.
How are you doing on your own goals?
