The other day I watched a speaker talk about how important it is to have goals. But even more important, he said, is having a plan to achieve that goal.
That really hit home for me.
I’ve been talking about being a successful freelance business writer for years now, and there are times when I give it my all. But truthfully, I realize I haven’t done my best yet. I haven’t made a good plan, I haven’t taken the necessary steps, to get to the 6 figures I know I can make with writing.
But better late than never, right?
This month I’m renewing my efforts with a passion. Having worked for myself makes me hungry to really make a living on my own.
So what makes a good plan? For me it’s quantifiable steps that I complete each day or each week. I know there will be times, like this week when my daughter had to stay home, when the plan doesn’t go…well…as planned. The point is to work like heck to put my foot on each step, knowing that there’s no way to reach the destination if I don’t. I can’t magically teleport to the goal.
So here goes! I’ll post my goal and my plan a little later.
In the meantime, tell us about your goals and your plans of action. Are you an aspiring writer or a part-time entrepreneur also?
