An 11 year old recently asked
what a New Year Resolution was.
A friend answered
“A goal you have for the new year.”

THIS definition is one of the reasons
I believe New Year Resolutions fail,
because there is no connection
to a bigger goal.

My goal for 2012 is to write
12 short stories
and 12 novellas.
This goal isn’t inspiring.
It isn’t life changing.
It doesn’t excite me.

What DOES excite me is my big goal
- To earn a million dollars a year
from writing in 10 years.
Being paid great money
to do something I love
gets my blood pumping.
It drives me to work hard,
to achieve.

My goal for 2012 is one more step
toward this big exciting goal.

Yes, have a goal for 2012
but tie that smaller goal
into a larger, more inspiring one.
