Goal Setting

A few years ago I set myself a goal to actually finish the writing that I start and to some extent I’ve been doing so.  I’m still very far from where I want to be but I feel I’m moving in the right direction.

I think it’s time to set a new goal.  Previously, it was finishing what I started.  Now I want to get to the point where I feel something is good enough to publicly share.  Maybe, it will be a self publish if I feel it’s really special, most likely it’ll be a blog post or something similar.  Something where I can openly post it and share for all the world to see.

I had initially thought about putting it off and calling it a New Year’s Resolution. But we all know those Resolutions are bullshit. If you stick with it until Martin Luther King Jr day you are doing better than most.  So, this isn’t any kind of resolution, it’s a goal. No preset time frame or anything, just a destination.

That’s my plan and I’m putting this out here so I have a modicum of accountability.  It’s here, written in electrons and pixels, digital stone. No going back now, no matter how chicken shit I get.  I need to do this.  I want to do this.  Writing has always given me joy and I think if I really work at it, focus on it and treat it seriously I can produce something others would like too.  I want to give back to the world.  I want to be a creator and not just a consumer.

Hold me to it Internet, because talk is cheap.
