I am taking part in a writing challenge called A Round of Words in 80 Days. This is a writing challenge where I set my own goals and check in on that goal twice a week. This is an 80 Day Challenge running January 2 – March 22.
My goals for this challenge are:
- write 80 Smile Igniters during the challenge.
- complete the 49 main happiness tips.
- take a daily “test run” of 300 written words each day.
Well, I have not been very focused on my challenge, but I do want to keep the goal and continue to participate. Who knows maybe I will catch up.
As I type this I am considering a few goal setting and getting techniques that would help me get back with the challenge.
For Write 80 Smile Igniters during the Challenge: I modified this goal from writing daily to writing 80 since I missed the daily. My intent is to create content, so I will focus on the quality and not beat myself up for missing the daily. I have written 11 of my 80 goal. I have some catch up to do.
Complete the 49 Happiness Tips: I need to count these up and get a clear starting point and current count. On the tips I have not done I probably need to brainstorm a little, gather some quotes and images to get my thoughts around these ideas again.
Take a Daily Test Run. Writing inspires and ignites my whole life. I have to make time for this each morning. I will start using an iPhone app to track this called Touch Goal. I am at my best when I am writing every morning. Time to get back into the habit.
Here is the linky to see who all are participating in this round of ROW80.
