#Writemotivation is back for 2013 with a brand new Goal-Check Month!
What is a Goal-Check month?Â
Apart from the general cheering we do on a daily basis, a Goal-Check Month is where you set goals for yourself and hold yourself accountable to them. You let us know what those goals are, and report during the month on how you think youâ€™re going with them. This helps hold yourself accountable.
The aim here is not to compete with each other â€“ itâ€™s to compete against ourselves (and that pesky inner-critic and procrastination demon that try to defeat us when we least want them to).
Buttons and an amazing sense of accomplishment will be your reward! Shiny, colourful, cookie buttons â€“ collect them all â€“ and in March have all the cheering, cookies, caffeine and zombie dinosaurs you can eat/carryÂ
Though these goal-check months technically have rules â€“ donâ€™t worry â€“ theyâ€™re completely doable.
- Make a list of realistic goals for the month â€“ and achieve them.
- Make a Blog Post every week (preferably Monday, but if you donâ€™t post on Mondays just add it to the next day you would normally postÂ Â ). This is to help us keep tabs on our own progress, and for others to cheer us on if itâ€™s a difficult week. Please link to the post in the #writemotivation hashtag
- Visit your #writemotivation team mates blogs, and participate in the #writemotivation hashtag to cheer people on
- Please fill in the form here:
Once this done youâ€™re â€˜registeredâ€™
Itâ€™d be nice if we all subscribed to each otherâ€™s blogs, but I donâ€™t want to make that a rule, just a courtesy.
Sign up and letâ€™s keep #writemotivation going. Kicking butt has been difficult for me what with the baby and the selling and buying of a house. But I’m really looking forward to March, not to mention cookies, caffeine, dinosaurs and zombie cheerleaders!Â
Hereâ€™s to a fantastic March 2013!
