    How I Plan To Hit My Targets This Year

    HOW I PLAN TO HIT MY TARGETS THIS YEAR

    I have big plans for 2016.

    I have a lot on my list of things to do, and it seems like my schedule is packed.

    How will I get it all done?

    I had the privilege of meeting with a coach last week, and we talked about the challenge of trying to fit it all into the time I have this year.

    We all have the same amount of time.  We have 24 hours in a day.  We have 168 hours in a week.  We have 52 weeks in a year.  And this is the same for everyone.  President Obama has this amount of time.  Bill Gates has this amount of time.  You have this amount of time.  And I have this amount of time.

    With this time we have choices to make.  How will we use the time?  What will stay in our schedules?  What will we remove from our schedules?

    Reaching your targets for 2016 requires you to make choices.

    And this is true for me.

    As I said before, I have big plans for 2016, and this means I have some choices to make.

    For most of last year, I posted here 5 days a week.  I felt like I needed to be consistent by posting every day Monday through Friday.  This was good, but I only have a limited amount of time to write (and to do other things).  Writing has become an important part of my life.  I have some specific goals related to my writing that I want to achieve this year, but I won’t be able to meet these targets without making some changes.

    With this in mind, you may see some changes to my posting patterns over the next few months.  I will still post here regularly, but I will also be using some of my writing time to go after some other things (more on that to follow).

    I’m learning that sometimes less is required for more.  And maybe this is what you need to come to terms with this year.

    What changes do you need to make to your schedule and your current commitments in order to reach your goals this year?
