2018 Make it Your Year Writing Goals

2018 Make it Your Year … 2018 is going to be MY year too!

I’m setting Achievable Goals for 2018: Guaranteed for success!

As an award winning empowerment author, writing workshop presenter and speaker (Karen Tyrrell) I’m aiming HIGH determined to attain my goals and dreams! My passions for writing, speaking and empowerment will drive me in 2018.

I’m creating my own luck and capitalizing on every opportunity presented to me.
With determination, I’m planning ahead every step of the way, setting realistic, achievable goals.

No Pie in the Sky dreams for me

I’m focusing on my achievable goals and what I can accomplish and the practical steps to reach there. It’s time to reset my targets, as the New Year comes hurtling towards me.
My wish is to make 2018 my MOST memorable year yet, one to be proud of.

ASK Yourself: What’s your Main Goal in 2018 Make it Your Year?

Squeeze your eyes shut and visualize your Big Picture for 2018.
Which goal drives you the most?

What do you want to achieve ABOVE everything else?

Concentrate on your main goal FIRST…

Now set practical mini-goals you can complete in three months or less.
Your brain will react to genuine personal goals that are S.M.A.R.T.

Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound.
Display your goals at eye level as a constant reminder and incentive … on a whiteboard or vision board above your computer … and/or on your fridge.

  • Great idea to plan ahead, I’ve done a brief blog post along similar lines, except that I don’t do public speaking (although I will be part of The Ten Penners school visits this year promoting our children’s anthologies – Fan-tas-tic-al Tales and our latest release – Mystery, Mayhem & Magic)
    You are an inspiration, keep up the great work!
