Quarterly Goals

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday πŸ™‚

If you want to know what Quarterly Goals are and see how I did in my April-June Quarterly Goals Recap. The only reason I dropped June from the past goals because I talked with a few friends and we set up a new plan for June πŸ˜‰

I and a few other girls are doing “Nano style” in July and August, so at June, we plan. I’m planning to “Nano Edit” on July and August while the others are doing the writing. I’ve talked with my mom and hubby about this and I am so happy that they are being so supportive of the idea, even if it means that I won’t be with them as much as usual πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for this… It means the world for me ❀

So here are my new goals for June – August πŸ˜‰

  1. Organize the house and De-clutter.
  2. Retype notes, final outline and organize them.
  3. Finish all book reviews I need to do.
  4. Print the final outline and the entire book.
  5. Start “Nano Edit” in July.
  6. Blog when I can (but at least once a week) πŸ˜‰
  7. Finish July’s “Nano Edit” with half the book edited.
  8. Don’t let others take my time (less of a goal and more of a reminder).
  9. Start “Nano Edit” in August.
  10. Finish August’s “Nano Edit”.
  11. Finish editing the entire book πŸ˜€
  12. In these 2.5 months Find an editor!!! (I always say I will find one, lol, but I let time pass me by).
  13. Keep Journaling, even on those stressful days πŸ˜‰
  14. Reach 850 followers on twitter πŸ˜‰
  15. Buy new frames.
  16. Re-organize our bookshelves (they are in a huge mess right now).

Well, these are my new goals. As you see, I have fewer goals this time and they are much more specific πŸ˜€ With a bit of luck I will be able to accomplish most of them. I am very excited about these goals and that I have the power to claim this time just for my writing ❀ I can’t wait to start.

I hope you are all doing great with your goals and with what you wish to accomplish. Remember! As long as you try, you are already far ahead in your path. I am so proud of you ❀

Thank you so much for reading ❀

Quarterly Goals Recap

Hello everyone and happy Monday to us all ❀

If by chance you don’t know what is Quarterly Goals, here’s a little introduction. I saw this feature at a YouTuber Author, Jenna Moreci. The idea is to list 10-20 goals for the next three months. This way you will be more focused on your goals and not watch TV, Netflix, YouTube or in my case, I won’t be gaming as much as I want.

If I accomplish my goals then I am amazing and I can say with a clear mind that I am the queen of the world, lol (or maybe not), but if I fail then I get to publicly say that I have failed (yay me). Sounds fun, right?

Quarterly Goals Recap

Before I will post my quarterly goals tomorrow, I want to do a short recap of the last quarterly goals (April – June) and see how I did.

  1. Write 250 pages (Come on Galit, I need to sit on my ass and write more. I can do this!).
  2. Edit on weekends.
  3. Write at least 8 blog posts a month.
  4. Change my blog theme and sidebar to what I’m working on now.
  5. Hold a giveaway (as I said in my last newsletter, it will be in June).
  6. Organize my blog.
  7. Clean up my twitter (again).
  8. Reach 750 followers on twitter πŸ˜‰
  9. Finish book reviews on time!
  10. Organize files on myΒ computer and hard drive (there are in a huge mess, lol).
  11. Buy a cover package.
  12. Hire an editor.
  13. Send out queries for T.E.L (already sent out 1).
  14. Read 3 to 4 books (not for reviews).
  15. Eat less junk food (must try at least, lol) πŸ˜‰
  16. Journal more often.
  17. Try to keep the house more suitable for humans (even in those stressful days, lol).
  18. Buy a new mattress (omg, I have to do this).
  19. Buy new frames (haven’t done this yet, lol).
  20. Date night with hubby (maybe even a game night) once a week ❀
  21. Follow blogs and social media stats.
  22. Drink more water!
  23. Post more on social media (writing and book-related pics).
  24. Make some changes to the newsletter (already started working on that).

So, as you see… I have failed my quarterly goals. completely!

From 24 goals I’ve accomplished 3 (an epic fail). It’s been a while since I’ve failed this bad, lol. Now even though these past few months were a huge mess of busy schedule, it’s still not an excuse for this massive failing proportion.

Now I still have June to try and make things better, but I talked with some of my writing buddy friends and we hatched a plan for the next 3 month, but it started this month. Tomorrow, I will post my new Quarterly Goals πŸ™‚

Quarterly Goals Recap

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to you all πŸ™‚

The time has come! Time to review my quarterly goals and find out if I was a huge success or a big F (for failure).

If you are not familiar with these Quarterly goals, I’ll give you a little background. I found the idea over at a You-tuber, and a wonderful Author, by the name of Jenna Moreci πŸ™‚

The idea is to list 10-20 goals for the next three months. This way you will be more focused on your goals and not watch TV or in my case, I won’t be gaming as much as I want

If I accomplish my goals then I am amazing and I can say with a clear mind that I am the queen of the world, lol (or maybe not), but if I fail then I get to publicly say that I have failed, yay me. Sounds fun, right?

If you wanna see the original post of my Quarterly Goals and How I have done throughout these three months in more detail, I will link them here:

Quarterly Goals

January Update

February Update

March Update (Kinda)

So, let’s start to look at my goals and see if I did well or not:

  1. Buy new boxes.
  2. Organize things in the boxes.
  3. Finish with the revising.Β  (Happy Dance)
  4. Have a date night with hubby once a week (already doing this <3). Half/Half Well for two months it went amazing, but then March came and everything stopped.
  5. Organize my Mom’s things.
  6. Organize writing room.
  7. Outline the new project.
  8. Write 150 pages. No! I am at page 138.
  9. Find my F* lost book. Finally found the notes and already organized them into binders.
  10. Write at least 8 blog posts a month. Half/Half Well I was great for the first two months, but March had different plans for me, lol πŸ˜€
  11. Post more on my social media. No!
  12. Clean up my Twitter. It looks better, but I still have tons of work.
  13. Change Covers/Banners/Themes (for social media & blog). It looks so pretty and I love it πŸ˜€ Go see if you haven’t yet πŸ™‚
  14. Clean & organize my blog. No! Done a few (little) changes and cleaned things up, but on March I have done nothing.
  15. Eat healthier (2-3 veggies/fruits a day). LOL, No! With all the stress, I ate mostly junk food 😦
  16. Drink more water (1.5-3 liters a day). No! Drank mostly diet coke (I know…) 😦
  17. Walk more. LOL, NO! Omg. This one is a huge fat NO! With everything that was going on, I didn’t even try. I was mostly too exhausted physically and mentally to start any workout.
  18. Cook at least 3 healthy meals a week. Half/Half For the first two months, I was relatively okay, but on March a huge NO!
  19. Reconnect with friends IRL (so hard for me). Sadly No!
  20. Take some pictures of hubby and me and print them out. Nope!
  21. Buy new simple frames and put those picture in them. No! Forgot all about this one, lol.
  22. Follow blog/social media stats.
  23. Reach 700 followers on Twitter (would love some help in this) Thank you so much to you all πŸ˜€ I have reached my goal and now I’m at 717 (yay).
  24. Research some things for an awesome giveaway (started). Done and done. now all I need are a few little things and I hope to hold this Giveaway on June ❀

So, let’s see how I did

If I am not mistaken I managed to accomplish a bit over half of my goals (13.5). So it’s still a huge fat failure for me! However, I am happy of a few ofΒ the things I was able to accomplish in my writing ❀

So I am not totally ashamed of my failure, lol, but I hope to do much better in my next Quarterly goals πŸ˜€

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀

Quarterly Goals

Goals

Hello my to all my wonderful readers, I hope you are all having a great Saturday ❀

Quarterly Goals, is a new feature that I will be posting once in every three months. I saw this feature at a YouTuber Author, Jenna Moreci. I loved it so much, so I thought it would be a great idea to try it out.

So far, it’s amazing.

I’ve already accomplished a few of my goals and I just started writing these goals. Usually, I write my monthly goals and even weekly/daily goals and with all that is going on in my life right now, I always feel overwhelmed and stressed.

Making these goals makes me feel that I have more control of the chaos around me and be able to do the things I want without being too stressed out or guilt. I still use daily/weekly goals but as a broken down of these goals I have below πŸ™‚

So, this is how it works (as she said in her Vlog)… You need to write 10 to 20 goals and you need to accomplish at least half of those goals by the end of the quarter.

If I accomplish half or more, than it is “well done” for me πŸ˜€

If I fail, then it is “public failure” for me (Yay) 😦

Here are my Quarterly goals (Jan-Mar)

  1. Buy new boxes.
  2. Organize things in the boxes.
  3. Finish with the revising.
  4. Have a date night with hubby once a week (already doing this <3).
  5. Organize my Mom’s things.
  6. Organize writing room.
  7. Outline the new project.
  8. Write 150 pages.
  9. Find my F* lost book.
  10. Write at least 8 blog posts a month.
  11. Post more on my social media.
  12. Clean up my Twitter.
  13. Change Covers/Banners/Themes (for social media & blog).
  14. Clean & organize my blog.
  15. Eat healthier (2-3 veggies/fruits a day).
  16. Drink more water (1.5-3 liters a day).
  17. Walk more.
  18. Cook at least 3 healthy meals a week.
  19. Reconnect with friends IRL (so hard for me).
  20. Take some pictures of hubby and me and print them out.
  21. Buy new simple frames and put those picture in them.
  22. Follow blog/social media stats.
  23. Reach 700 followers on Twitter (would love some help in this) πŸ˜€
  24. Research some things for an awesome giveaway (started).

 

Okay, so I have a bit more than 20 goals, lol but some are smaller than others (so that’s okay). Wish me luck with all these goals and I do hope I will be able to accomplish at least half and not fail here in front of all you, lol.

I do like that in this goal setting approach, I still hold myself accountable but not without the massive stress I usually feel πŸ˜€

Are you a goal-setting kind of a person? If you are, how do you go about that?

As always, thank you so much for reading ❀
