Worksheet #5 – Weekly Goals
Sunday is traditionally a day of rest and relaxation, or reflection and renewal. In my online courses, I give a day off for a mental break, but because this a short-term project, no breaks!
The Sunday worksheet will be on goal setting. I will use a repeat worksheet on Sundays for planning your writing week and reviewing what you did last week.
Goals for this week:
1 – How much will you write on your WIP this week? (# of words, # of pages, # of chapters, # of hours–whatever measuring stick you’d like to use)
2 – What other tasks do you need to handle this week? (revisions or research for your WIP, blog posts, submissions, PR, etc.)
Next Sunday, I will add a “How did you do on last week’s goals?” question.
As you set goals, remember to be realistic! Doable goals are the ones people achieve. It’s great to push yourself, but if you aim for the unrealistic or unreachable, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Be reasonable with yourself as you plan this week–and good luck!
One thought on “40 Days of Worksheets – Day 5”
I’ve done this one for years. It’s a useful way to indulge my OCD. I set up goals for the year, the month, and also each day in my daily page, where I review what I got done yesterday. One tip I found helpful was; if you’re not meeting your goals. lower them. This is just for YOU, to make you feel you’re accomplishing something. That works for me anyway.
