Writing A Plan For The New Year

To be honest, I don’t like resolutions.

Resolutions tend to start out bright and shiny, and then become dull when something gets in the way or it just becomes too hard.

Whether we’re talking about losing weight, being more organized, or improving the quality of our lives or our writing, resolutions are make-or-break: an all or nothing mindset.

Most resolutions fail because we aim too high or are unrealistic when we set our goals.

Instead, I love setting goals and making plans to accomplish those goals.

January is the perfect time to create new goals.

It is the blank slate, the fresh page on the calendar, the promise of beginnings; the perfect do-over.

Forget your past mistakes and start again.

Make the New Year the year you achieve your dreams by setting realistic goals and making a workable plan.

If you really think you are too busy to write, sit down and make a list of everything you do in a day. Now really study it. If you are at work from

Now really study it. If you are at work from 8am to 5pm, maybe you could write during your two coffee breaks or at lunchtime. Stay at home parents can sneak in some writing when the kids are napping or enjoying a video.

Take control of your schedule by creating a yearly plan for anything you want to achieve.

If time is a struggle, check your schedule and look for snippets that you could use for writing.

Get up one hour earlier than usual or go to bed a little later.

If you want to achieve more, see if there are activities that you could eliminate.

Stop making excuses and just begin.
