Target Practice

I have a confession. I listen to motivational tapes. Not often. But once in a while when I need a kick in the butt.

Lately I've been listening to cd's I have on goal setting (by Zig Ziglar). I love how he says it’s tough to hit a target you don’t even have. Ain't that the truth?

So this month, being the month I celebrate being on this earth for another year, I’ve been working on my long-range and short-term goals. I take all the goals I have for the different aspects of my life; spiritual, mental, physical and, of course, my writing goals and I chart them and give myself deadlines.

Are you a goal setter?

Oh, yes. I'm a goal setter.

And when I don't meet them, I adjust them, but they're always there, moving and wiggling just out of reach, keeping me on my toes!

I can one up you. :-) When I'm feeling down, when I feel like all is lost, I listen to those self-hypnosis tapes as I fall asleep.

They actually help. They give me hope, and sometimes, that's all you need, you know?
