reach for goalAs a writer, I have goals: x-number of words, pages, chapters per day, a book published by a specific date then…

Life erupts.

Circumstances change.

Accidents happen.

What I want to do and what I do become a major disconnect.

Jennifer Crusie says, “Part of being a writer is defending your vision and not caving … .”

Disconnecting between goals and actions is unavoidable even if you’re not a writer and not caving is too often easier to say than do.

Let me suggest two ways to connect your want and your action to prevent caving:

  1. Stick to your goal even if it takes longer than you want to achieve.
  2. Never settle for less than what you are capable of.

Does your goal sometimes seem out of reach?

Keep focusing, keep aiming!
