Consider Your Obstacles to Attain Your Goals – Daily Quote


I have a monthly ritual. I analyze my word counts, compare totals against my goals, and I set my schedule for October. During my most recent review, it shocked me to realize less than 90 days remain. The countdown stands at 78. It’s a source of distress for me. Normally, those numbers have little impact, but we are talking about the year’s end. It means a reduction in time available to complete my work.

Holidays, like today, Columbus Day are the culprit.  Celebrations, family obligations, and traveling, cut my normal scheduling availability by another ten days. Suddenly, it appears my daily averages will drop. I am not willing to accept an avoidable disappointment and returned to my agenda to make a few adjustments. There is still a way to reach my objectives. By picking up small additions over the next two weeks, everything should be fine.

How do you plan to reach your goals?


Keep on writing.

  1. I wonder… do ALL well known authors fret about their word count on a daily basis? I’ve never heard them even talk about it when they have been interviewed. What have you found? I think when we worry too much about the count, we can’t be creative anymore. Too much stress you put on yourself. YES, the word count is important, but make sure that you don’t become overly stressed about it. Instead with the word count that you did achieve, did you LIKE what you wrote — to me that would be the BIG question.
