February has all too quickly become March, so take a moment to evaluate the progress you’ve made on the writing goals you made in January.
I have discovered that if you don't take a step back once in a while, months have a way of disappearing without any visible progress. Before you know it, December has arrived and your book still isn't finished.
The best way to make sure that you make consistent progress is to cultivate two habits:
1. Track your progress at the end of each month.
2. Create deadlines for finishing specific tasks for the next month.
It's easy to do both of these things if you list your accomplishments during the previous month on a sheet of paper and hang it on your wall where you can glance at it (often) and feel good about what you’ve accomplished. Likewise, commit your upcoming month’s writing goals to paper and hang them on the wall next to your accomplishments.
How you do this is up to you...use a calendar (online or printed), type out a list or jot it down on the back of a napkin. But make sure you keep them so you can look back at the end of the year to see how far you've come.
Leave a comment and let use know how you stay on track with your goals.
