“As I read the evidence at the inquest, which led up to a verdict of willful murder against some person or persons unknown, I realized more clearly than I had ever done the loss which the community had sustained by the death of Sherlock Holmes”
-Arthur Conan Doyle
This blog has been rolling for a little more than a year now, and it needs to get SMART. I clearly have many time management issues, yet I still want to keep the blog going. So, I am setting a goal. I am not making a New Year’s Resolution. First off, it is too late for that. Secondly, New Year’s Resolutions have kind of become a joke. People do not seem to take the resolutions seriously. That is the reason I am setting a goal. Thus, I capitalized every letter in the word SMART. It is a goal planning thing. It stands for:
If you tell people your goal, you are more likely to follow through with your goal. At least, that is what I heard. So, I wanted to “verbalize” my goal for the next year. Here is the SMART goal:
S: I will publish at least one blog post a month of original thoughts. I will also include at least one quote per month.
M: The blog counter should be helpful in measuring my blog posts.
A: I should be able to think of at least one blog post a month. Also, finding quotes is not that hard.
R: This is a blog. I should be blogging.
T: This is going to be for a period of 12 months.
So, there are my goals. It is well thought out and out for the world to see. Hopefully, this will keep me updating the blog with new information and new ideas.
