The new year – what will it bring you?
By Cassandra Carr

The New Year is here, and that means it’s time to once again assess your life. I’m not a big resolution maker, but I do have goals. They morph and change throughout the year depending on circumstances, but they’re always in the back of my mind. These goals can be anything from finishing a book to cleaning out my closets to teaching my daughter to tie her shoes.

I’m not real formal about my goals. I don’t write them down. I don’t quantify them as one-year, five-year, and ten-year goals. But I have them.

What are some of my goals? Writing-wise, I’d like to put five or six books out in 2012. Family-wise, I want to get my daughter toilet-trained, an effort she’s mightily resisting so far. On the home front, I want to find a place to put all the children’s books, DVDs etc that were displaced when we bought a new TV and got rid of our huge entertainment center.

I break down my writing goals using a spreadsheet project tracker. I have all the items in my writing queue prioritized and I keep track of what phase each project is in. At this point, without that I’d be lost. I need some organization in my life in order to get anything done!

What are some of your goals for the New Year? How do you plan to achieve them?
