End-of-Year-GiveawayHappy New Year! Today is our last book giveaway of the holiday season. We’ll announce all the winners tomorrow.

 

My New Year’s Resolution

Here it is: Limit the Plan, Work the Plan, Enjoy the Plan

I need to LIMIT what I put on my schedule and what I want to create. I come up with far too many ideas and love the variety, but then don’t have the energy to do my best on the important things. I’ve come up with a few criteria to help me decide whether something should be in that limited plan or not.

I need to WORK the plan so I reserve time on my calendar not just to create great content, but to market or share that content too. And then I have to stick with the plan and stop waiting until the last minute to do everything.

Finally I need to ENJOY the plan! When you are self-employed, if you aren’t thoroughly enjoying your work, you only have yourself to blame. When I don’t like my job, it’s almost always because I am trying to do too much in too little time. I can control that.
