If there’s one thing I’m known for by my friends and colleagues, it’s killing whatever writing and business goals I set for myself. In this week’s Inspired Writing episode (the first of 2021!), I want to share with you the three areas I focus on that help me move my writing forward every day.
2020 was the most challenging year yet for many of us. In March, I watched helplessly as my full roster of speaking engagements evaporated and my event appearances were canceled. I hunkered down and adapted my home office to accommodate my husband and three kids for work and online learning. I took some time to reflect on where I was going. I took a deep breath and set goals in my three focus areas. I trusted in the process I’d enacted many times before and I showed up every day with intention. I defined not only WHAT I wanted to achieve, but HOW and WHY as well. These three areas are especially important when setting creative goals and I’ll walk you through how to define your own goals to make the biggest impact you can on your writing life.
Through the remainder of 2020, I completed my Advanced Book Coaching Certification from Author Accelerator, grew my Book Coaching practice, started this weekly Vlog to help others with their writing lives and still managed to get a new book on submission. Phew! In December, I hired my first two part time employees to support my growing business.
At the start of 2020, I couldn’t have imagined where this year would take me, but I’m pumped for 2021 and super excited to share my goal setting process with you, which I’ve honed over two decades as a business executive before starting my own business doing all things writing.
