Goal List

Most people , who want to achieve something that’s important, have a list of goals. This past weekend, I was rummaging through my desk and found a Goal List I wrote a while back. I looked over them and found that I fell short on some and still working on others. But, I re-dedicated myself to achieving these objectives. At least I’ll try to be more aware of the goals I set forth.

I wanted to share the list with my supporters and those who are trying to reach their Goal Mountaintop:

1. I will write everyday no matter what.

2. I will carry my notebook everywhere I go to record my life and ideas.

3. I will not be afraid to write.

4. I will not be afraid of failure.

5. I will not be afraid of rejection.

6. I will not be afraid of success

7. I will fight for my place in the world.

8. I have ideas that need to be expressed.

9. I will not be intimidated by anyone.

10. I will observe and process my surroundings

11. I must become better than what I am now in the eyes of God and my family

12. When I’m feeling strong emotions, I will write it out.

Thank you for letting me share and hopefully someone can benefit from this.

  1. An admirable list, my friend. It will take me a lifetime to do something like that 😉

    You know, my first thought on ‘Not be afraid of writing’ is- duh, that’s obvious. But then I followed it up with- and the hardest. Isn’t it though? I think it’s expresses and opens a part of us that’s difficult to open, and to trust being open.

    Allowing ourselves to write, and write badly from time to time, is key to success, I think.


    1. It is. I sometimes think of l ideas to put in a story and hold back. That stifles me and its hard to write after that. Looking over the list, I decided to just go for it. I can always edit it out if need be.


  2. As for me, instead of a goal list, I use the blog posts that I make to serve as my self-reminders. Still, a goal list is a good idea. Let’s do our best and have fun, then!


  3. Thank you for sharing your list of goals. I have looked at these a couple times and think that #4 and #9 are the hardest for me to do. I wish you the best of luck and check back in on you to see how they are going.

    1. I agree with you. #4 I’m trying to embrace if that’s the right word and #9 I should add not to be jealous of others success. maybe I’ll make that #13. Thanks for reading.


      1. The “not being jealous” is a difficult thing for me as well. I think we can keep creating a longer and longer goal list if we keep this going.

        Thank you for you post. It did get me thinking tonight on goals and priorities.
