It feels like it’s been ages since I made my New Year resolutions, when in reality it’s only been roughly three months or so. Maybe that’s because ever since mid-January or so, I’ve fallen into a type of twilight zone regarding work and my personal life. Self-help books and other sources will always tell you that it’s not about having more time to do things, it’s about making use of the time you do have. I suppose I’m still trying to work on how to better organize my time so I don’t feel so far behind on everything.
A lot of the things I have to do are more or less errands that I keep putting off because I don’t really want to do them… like getting my hair trimmed and buying certain things I need (I hate shopping in most cases). I also have quite a few goals that are more complex and require sub-goals.
1. I wanted to try and submit some of my bazillions of poems somewhere so they won’t be sitting on my flash drive and in my notebooks collecting dust.
2. Even though I really dislike writing short stories, I ought to practice writing some so I can get them critiqued, send them off somewhere, and make a name for myself in publishing.
3. Decide what direction I should take my neglected WiP in…
4. Learn Adobe InDesign. Most every job I go to apply for requires (or recommends) knowledge of InDesign, and it’s something I never learned and is probably fairly easy.
5. Re-learn HTML and CSS. I remember how much I enjoyed it, and I kind of miss it. Plus, it comes in handy… and it’s a nice skill to have.
That’s more or less an abbreviated list. And it helped me organize my brain a little bit. For my readers… good luck on all your goals – I’m rooting for you! 🙂
