Happy New Year, friends! I hope you had a truly magical holiday season and that you find yourself in good health and good spirits now that 2022 has begun.
At the end of 2021, I found myself watching a lot of self-development, goal setting, planning, and business related YouTube videos that motivated me and had me thinking about where I would want myself and my author business to be at the end of 2022, and then five and ten years down the road. I think about this a lot but often it’s just in the general daydreaming sense and I don’t do anything with those ideas. I often get surges of motivation and drive to do better, work harder, be more successful, but just like with working out and getting in shape, that motivation to build my author business tends to peter out after a couple of weeks.
This year, thanks to the help of all of those YouTube Videos and a bunch of different books and journaling prompts, I have built a system to help me stay organized and focused on my goals. I have six different planners and journals that will help keep me stay organized, focused, and habit and goal-oriented throughout the year. A few of the books that I’ve been reading are: How I Sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months, Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones, Habits: A 12-Week Journal to Change Your Habits, Track Your Progress, and Achieve Your Goals, and Rich As F*ck: More Money Than You Know What to Do With.
This particular YouTube video was helpful for my planning and goal setting this year.
So, with all that said, what exactly are my goals for this year?
- Publish PLAYING FOR KEEPS
- Publish PERSONAL FOUL
- Publish COURTING DEATH
- Publish SEDUCING THE BAKER
- Earn six digits from my multiple streams of income
- Reach 14,000 newsletter subscribers
- Reach 15,000 Instagram Followers
These are some pretty lofty goals for me, but they are achievable if I stick with my system and programs that I’ve set up for myself this year, I stay healthy, and nothing too dramatic happens in the world.
