Here it is, folks: the end of 2020. The last dance. The grand finale. Some bloggers like to end the year by reflecting upon it: they look back at all of the events that took place, both good and bad. Normally, I do the same thing. But this year was very different from every other year before it. That being said, I want to end it differently. No reflections, no looking back. Let’s just move on, get a fresh start, and use a clean slate.
A new year means new goals. If you’re a writer, it’s time to set your writing goals. Don’t worry about what you didn’t accomplish in 2020–that year is gone; it’s a memory, now. Focus on what you want to accomplish in 2021. Are you working on a book you want to finish? Make finishing it your goal. Need to read some more books and do some research for your writing? Make a list of books you want to read and get crack’n. Don’t focus on what you didn’t do. Focus on what you want to do. Focus on what you want to accomplish in 2021.
My goals are fairly simple: read as many books as possible, make new connections via social media, and finish the book I started writing last year. If anything extra gets accomplished, great. If not, that’s fine. This is about progress, not perfection.
Set your goals for 2021, and start tackling them one at a time. Make 2021 the best year it can possibly be for you.
