January 2020 Goals

We all start off making resolutions that we think we’ll meet and fall short of them every new year. Then, comes the cycle of thinking your year is going to be ruined if you don’t accomplish what you’ve set off to do. Instead, I like to challenge myself each month and make small goals that I know I can easily attain. Life is constantly evolving and changing. Go with it and don’t be afraid of that. God is leading you where he wants you to go. I challenge myself by doing things that I know will make me a better person. -Be kinder -work harder -spread joy -read more -laugh more -enjoy more. Simplicity is far kinder and greater to your mental health than putting pressure and undue expectations on yourself.

As we enter into January, I have a few short-term goals and a few long-term goals I’d like to accomplish in the new year.

Short-term goals

  • Prepare for the second semester of my children’s homeschool year.
  • Write a list of books I plan on reading and reviewing for the month of January
  • Set a writing schedule for the month and a list of objectives to achieve my goals
  • Throw out things in my home and start fresh
  • Set a goal of reading my bible and create a daily devotional schedule

Long-term goals

  • Publish my short story collection
  • Register and prepare for the next school year for my children’s homeschool
  • Share my writing with magazines, online, and avenues where my work can be showcased
  • Pay off my school bills and prepare to go back to school
  • Pay off my credit card(s) which are at low costs

These are basic and not at all involved. But, I like to try and make goals. I’ll post again at the end of the month with an update on what I have accomplished and what I need to continue working on.

As for the changes on my blog, you’ll soon see many things posted. Here is a short list of what you can expect in 2020 when coming to my page.

  • Book Reviews
  • Author Interviews
  • Compare posts
  • Poetry
  • Short Stories
  • Writing Strategies/Goals/Objectives
  • Publication Prepeartion
  • Book lists
  • Reading lists
  • Shameless promotion of other authors

You get the gist. You’ll see tons more. I started this blog a year ago and I didn’t post as often as I thought I would. This year, I plan to throw many things out there. I hope you’ll keep up and join in with me.

Until next time,

Ruth Anne 🙂
