"We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day."
-Richard G. Scott
Yeah, I kinda suck at that. You know, the whole actually doing what we need to so we become what we want to EACH day.
Wow, that felt very irreverent to put the word 'suck' in the same post as a Richard G. Scott quote. But there's no other word that I can think of to describe just how horrible I am at doing something EACH day.
I know of published writers who consistently write each day (weekends, holidays, and birthdays included). And then there are others that write in large spurts after seasons of drouts. Obviously, it works both ways.
With me I've noticed that if I write every day I think about my book more throughout the day, and I'm excited to write again the next day. But if I don't write every day then writing becomes a chore.
Jeni, in my critique group, gave me the great idea of having a weekly word goal. So, on those crazy days when you only have time to maybe write a paragraph (and that's pushing it) you are still reaching for a goal that week.
My goal this week is 3500. I have 1482 already written.
What are your goals that you are working on (writing or not). And how do you work at attaining them?
