I’ve started writing this post too late in the evening. Actually this is the second post I’ve started too late this evening. The first, I was trying really hard to be witty and charming and entertaining and it wasn’t working. It’s been a long, full day and nighttime is not when I do my best work. I could try to push through – work even later and harder and spin my wheels more, for what? A mediocre post that doesn’t really accomplish what I wanted it to. So I’ve readjusted my goals tonight. I just have to write a post. That’s the deal for NaBloPoMo – just write.
Those of you who know me well, know I am a big fan of little goals. You can always exceed them if you achieve one of them easily. Exceeding them does bring you more energy and focus. But make a goal too big so you can’t reach it? Not only do you feel disappointment when you don’t reach it, but it makes it harder for you to believe in yourself the next time you set a goal. So little goals…little steps. They add up over time.
I’ll post this little blog and by itself it won’t be much but it will add together with all of the other blogs to help me achieve my goal of a blog a day for thirty days. Not bad for way too late in the evening.
This is post #5 for my participation in the National Blog Posting Month challenge. I’ll be posting a blog a day for 30 days.
