My Second Quarterly Goals 2017

Since my word for the year is “Reach” I want to be reaching goals, reaching out to God, myself, and others, while reaching who I want to be.

Three months ago, I decided to set quarterly goals. If you’d like to see that post, here it is.

My First Quarter:

January, February, and March:

  • Write at least 6 hours a week. (12 month goal: Write a complete book and reach out to agents.)
    How it turned out: I am sad to say I didn’t accomplish this the best at the beginning of the quarter, but by mid-February I started picking up the heat and wrote a ton of words for my current WIP.
  • Start exercising 3-4 times a week. (12 month goal: Lose weight and get healthy.)
    How it turned out: I was crushing the exercising, but got sick a couple times so that kind of put a damper on getting to the gym.
  • Get a basic product up online to make passive income from. (12 month goal: Make at least $500 extra a month through online business.)
    How it turned out: I felt like I was working toward this goal at the speed of a tortoise. That’s something I need to improve for the next quarter. I just need to do it, but I did create a new opt in for the website newsletter. I will share more on this later! ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Do something special for someone I love every week. (12 month goal: Relationship. Be a better wife, daughter, sister, and friend.)
    How it turned out: For the first couple of weeks this was easy. I really enjoyed doing things to serve and make people know I love them and care. When I was sick, it took a dive, but once better I picked it up again.
  • Make something new weekly. (12 month goal: Build my creativity.)
    How it turned out: This is harder said than done. For a couple weeks I was really hitting the goal of creating something new every week. I got to create some extra cool paintings and art pieces.
  • Do a Bible study every day. (12 month goal: Get closer to the Lord.)
    How it turned out: This didn’t go well at all at the beginning of the quarter. I started reading daily or closer to daily at Mid-February.

What went well?

I came up with some great ideas and got some things achieved. I didn’t get everything finished off my quarterly goal list, but I started and finished some projects.

-Did Facebook Live on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for a book club during the lunch hour.
-Will have written at least 20K words for my current WIP book by the end of the month.

Really enjoyed writing by hand today at lunch. Wrote half a chapter all by hand. Feels so good!

-Finished writing a product for my website. It’s going to be the new FREE opt in for my website.

What didn’t go well?

After the fact, I felt like there was no follow through with some of my projects. When I get home, I don’t feel like working on projects. Am more tempted to sit back and put my feet up. Maybe it’s a lack of motivation.

What should be improved?

Go to bed earlier so I can wake up earlier. Then I can work onย my passion projects before the day even begins.

I’d also love to set up a healthy morning routine to read my Bible, eat a nice breakfast, and a good chunk of time to get some writing done.

Second Quarterly Goals of 2017 – (April, May, June)

  • Wake at 5am.
  • Write a minimum of 6 hours a week.
  • Finish current WIP.
  • Do something special for someone I love every week. (12 month goal: Relationship. Be a better wife, daughter, sister, and friend.)
  • Run 4 days a week.
  • Market basic product.
  • Start creating a roadmap for a second product.
  • Guest post on blogs and podcasts.
  • Do a Bible study daily.
  • Read more. I want to read a minimum of 10 books. Really want to start focusing on getting more words read so I can improve my own writing.
