Just Do It!

Fitness Guru Tony Horton is so dedicated that he plans his exercise schedule six months in advance. Horton, who has one of the most toned bodies for someone over 50, encourages others to plan their workouts. If you want to workout five times a week, he says, then plan which twenty days you'll workout this month. Then, commit to do it!

A friend revealed her goal-setting strategy. She places round stickers--the kind you find in Walmart for pricing garage-sale items--on her calendar with her writing goals. So, sit down with your calendar, spread sheet, day planner, whatever (I've been accused lately of over-using that word), and write down your incremental plan to reach your writing goals.

Then, just do it!

Love this idea! So.....if I put stickers on the calendar then I am more accountable to write, right? :) Thanks for sharing this, Roxanne!

Short and sweet, Roxanne.
Now, I just need to decided what color dots I'm going to use for what.
Pink: Emotional journey.
Yellow: Spiritual journey . . .

Yes, Jeanne, we're aiming for accountability. Beth, love the idea to color code. I also color code index cards and entire scenes to balance POV's.
