Goal Results From 2013

Hey, y’all! I thought I’d post my goals from 2013 for you to see. I didn’t include all the goals (there were some I didn’t want to share publicly) but other then that, here they are; complete with whether or not I accomplished them. I’m pretty excited about what I got done this year. Sure, I didn’t work on Star Glow and The Coming Dawn, but really, I’m not sure how far those will go and getting a book traditionally published and then turning it into an audio book was well worth the switch in plans, I think! 

The path to your goals isn’t always easy, but it’s worth it! 


Every Day Goals:

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, every day I have at least a 20 minute devotions time – YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, every day I do something toward the goal of selling millions of books – YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, every day I journal what I did to move toward my goal (sometimes I do two days at once) –YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I write for my “100/100 Challenge” every day, at least for the first quarter of the year –YES (I might have been a couple of minutes late with one day, I’m not sure)

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I take vitamins every day, because they help me with everything else that I do –YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I make it a habit of thanking God for 10 things when I wake up, and if I forget, then when I remember, I think of 20 things I am thankful for. –YES

Brushing my teeth twice a day. –YES

Every Week Goals:

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I have my bedroom cleaned at least once a week. –YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I write at least two blog posts a week, whenever Internet is available -YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I read, listen to or watch at least five hours of educational stuff each week (and I work at getting it more spaced out throughout the week, meaning not all bunched into Saturday) –YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I have at least five hours of devotions/time spent with God each week –YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I write in my prayer journal at least two days a week, which will help me reach 100,000 words in one year -Writing two days a week, YES not the word-count though (I think there were one or two weeks where I only did it one day)
In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I eat sugar only one day a week, with 12 extra days throughout the year (I have to do this until May first, then will re-evaluate) –YES!!! Not only did I do that, but I went the whole year without sugar.

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I go on a walk at least three times a week – this walk must be at least as long as to the office and back – YES

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I will write at least 3,000 words every week – No (Decided this wasn’t a good goal because I was focusing on editing, so I dropped it)

Year Long Goals: 

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I am getting Where Dandelions Grow published –No (I decided this wasn’t important when the chance came to get a book traditionally published)

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I am getting Star Glow published –No  (I decided this wasn’t important when the chance came to get a book traditionally published)

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I am getting at least one of the Creation Books published –YES (Traditionally, too!)

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I am re-writing Star Glow and The Coming Dawn –No (I decided this wasn’t important when the chance came to get a book traditionally published)

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I will focus on editing what I have already written –Yes

In 2013, if the Lord wills and I live, I will work on keeping up with all my platforms on the Internet, but will not become consumed by them –YES (Not the .com as much)


Big things to focus on in 2013:

*Working on getting rid of my health issues –YES

*Getting the Creation books out there –YES 


NOTE: All of these goals are valid through 1/1/2013 Through 12/23/2013. Then I get from 12/24/2013 through 12/31/12 as free time except I still have to do something toward my books and journal it every day

So, what about you, folks? What were some of your goals for 2013? How did you do on them? And stick around ’cause I’m planning on posting my goal for 2014 soon!

    This is a discipline that I sadly never adopted, but, as I've been reading your blogs for the last six weeks, I wish I had. My life hasn't been awful by any means, but I wonder how many of the dreams that I had when I was younger would have been accomplished. This is an excellent post, Aidyl. I look forward to seeing what you're setting yourself up for in 2014. Have a blessed Sunday.

    Thanks, David! Just remember, it's never to late to start! There are so many stories out there of people who accomplished more in the last ten or twenty years of their lives than al the rest of it put together. You can still adopt discipline and begin accomplishing those things you've dreamed about. 🙂
