Near the end of last year, I did a "Goals 2012" reflection post, where I talked about my various failures and achievements of the year. A few days later, I talked about my plans for 2013. Of the four things I mentioned in that latter post, I've done three of them. One of those three things was releasing a physical CD full of my music. The others were less of a big deal, but I'm glad I did achieve some things. Still, there are plenty of things I haven't done so far this year that I wanted to do. While I'm not quite ready to look at my Goals 2013 page and evaluate failures/achievements yet, I will be doing that sometime in December.
Actually, though, I'm already looking to next year. In 2014, I really want to change how I approach achieving goals. I want to focus on novel revision (that has been the plan the last 2 years, but other stuff has often got in the way of me actually achieving much there). I want to make it a goal not necessarily to get a particular number of projects revised, but to at least try to do, say, one chapter a night (this could be unrealistic). I have so many projects to my name that I will definitely not run out of work. I'd also like to schedule in some breaks from writing/blogging. I've never done that before. So, I guess you can see that I'm not entirely clear on what I'll be doing next year, but I do want things to change. I've tended to be quite regimented in my goal-achieving plans, and it did work at first, but it's no longer quite as effective.
One thing I can say is that I'd dearly love to finally get that Grimm Brothers book off my "currently reading" shelf at GoodReads. But that does require me doing up little reviews of each story. I just really want to get that done.
