Second Week Challenge: 12,000 out of 10,000 words
I'm on a roll and I really hope it won't stop. The power a realistic goal has is surprising. It might not work for everyone but it seems to have been just what I needed. A bit of structure and a lot of freedom.
Good luck to everyone with their own goals!
First Week Challenge: 11,000 out of 10,000 words
All it took was aggravating my carpal tunnel but I did it! In fact I surpassed my goals. It's incredibly gratifying to accomplish what I set out to do. At the same time I'm fully aware that part of my ability to reach my goal is because I had realistic expectations. I know that I could have been trying to hit 20,000 but I know I would burn out really quick if I tried to do that long term. Short term for a week long sprint sure I could push myself but any longer than that and I would become exhausted.
The burn out would lead to failure which would lead me to feeling awful about myself. So I'm learning to set these expectations of myself within reason. I definitely had to turn down a movie night in order to hit my goal. Sacrifices were made but it was all in good fun.
What are some of your goals and how are you doing with them? Let me know :)
