In just a few days, the new year will be upon us. Have you set your writing goals for 2009? If you haven't, take a few minutes today, to plan your writing.
Set two different kinds of writing goals: process goals, and achievement goals.
Your process goals ("I will write 300 words every day") are usually under your control. However, achievement goals may not be. An achievement goal like "I will sell my mystery novel to _____________ by June 30, 2009" is not under your control. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't set achievement goals -- just that you need to keep in mind that you will need to adjust this goal as circumstances change.
Keep the number of your goals manageable. You should be able to keep your goals in mind, so don't set so many that you struggle to remember what they are.
How to Achieve Every Goal You Set
Here's how to achieve every goal you set. Every day, for a minute or two, relax, and imagine how you'll feel when you've achieved a goal. See yourself achieving the goal (writing every day, selling your mystery novel), and feel the feelings.
Remember these feelings, and if you start to doubt yourself, visualize again. You're aiming for a feeling of expectation.
The law of attraction works. You get what you focus on. So to achieve your goals in 2009, keep your mind on what you want, and off what you don't want.
Sounds simple? It is, and it's powerfully effective too. So set some goals today: setting goals is the first step to achieving them.
