Goals update for March

I realised I hadn’t added my goals! Here we go…

So, how did I go for this month? Better in some of the goals I’m working on, and a few that need addressing. I’d be grateful for any suggestions for improvement!

Personal Goals

Home and work balance

  • My co-curricular for the term is now finished. Was asked to coach netball or hockey. I did say no. Time to get back on track with home and work life balance.


  • I thought February was bad, March was worse. I only managed to exercise 6 times. Serious modification needed.


  • I did take photos! (see slideshow above)

Food and wine

  • Going okay, though the up side, we did go out for dinner a number of times.

Professional Goals


  • As mentioned above, volleyball is done for the term. We won one game out of six, though out of 4 we went to 5 sets and only lost by a handful of points.


  • I have about 10 chapters left to edit in Book 3 of the Servant of the Gods series. I am using ProWriter as an editing tool and it has a number of functions, hence taking longer than anticipated. Then I’ll contact my beta readers, get their feedback, amend and then to my editor.

I am still reading the Serenity Prayer.

I’ve a bit of work to do in staying on course with my goals. Much harder than I anticipated, especially as I am reviewing and writing down what I have achieved each month. I am using daily diary, a goals journal as well as posting here. Three months in, a quarter of the year gone. Madness.

Where are you with your goals? Are you keeping a log of your activities?

Thank you for your continued support and as always, I look forward to your comments and will respond.

    I love readying about writerly goals. You are very diverse, Luciana. All I can do is write! I’m impressed with all you do.

    I joined an exercise app called Strava with another writer to track my walks and cheer her on. If you like to join it (it’s free), I’ll cheer you on with your exercising!

      Thank you, Jacqui. I enjoy taking photos, it helps to distract my thoughts and being stressed. I used to play basketball and squash but unable to do so now, hence walking. Finding time is the biggest issue.

      I’ve downloaded the app! Yet to get started!!!

    Living in the northern hemisphere, I’m in the middle of spring. In past years, I’ve had some problems getting motivated at this time, probably because I’d rather be outside. This year is different. My motivation is picking up as the days get warmer and dryer. Maybe what is going on with you is that you’re currently going through your autumn when things are slowing down.

    Just a thought.

      I hadn’t considered that before, Glynis, with the change of seasons. That makes a lot of sense, moving from summer to autumn, slowing down and ready for ‘hibernation’. thank you!

    You are inspiring me with setting goals. I’m so excited that you are in the process of editing the 3rd book in your series. I can hardly wait to see how the series finishes. I enjoyed seeing your photos. Have a lovely week!

      Thank you very much, Linnea. 🙂 I must say the experience of reflecting on my goals has been a positive one, even with those goals that I don’t achieve.
      Almost half way through the editing. The ending may… 😉
      I hope the week ahead is a great one for you.
