I tend to keep my list of objectives fairly short to prevent myself from getting overwhelmed, and in order to prioritize my focus on items of significance. Quality over quantity.
I’ve come to the conclusion that playing it safe is boring.
Every month I go to the campus and connect with my college classmates, and we exchange notes about our lives, work, and our personal projects. I like to think of it as us keeping each other motivated.
So many things happen each year, that it’s hard to pick a set path and work towards one goal. Even in the middle of doing my NaNoWriMo challenge this November, I’ve seen prompts and reminders for writing contests, manuscript submissions, and was asked if I’d be interested in applying to the Prairie Comics Festival. Unfortunately, all of these items have early December deadlines, and I’m still dedicated to my NaNo challenge.
I’ve marked the opportunities down in my Bullet Journal as future goals, and will start working toward them once I have completed my current challenge. Bullet journals are still new to me, but I find them quite motivational.
Next year, I’m going to try and do as many things from the list as possible. Shoot for the stars, right?
Currently, I’m sitting at 6099 words for NaNoWriMo. Going to get caught up this weekend!
