So I've set three goals.
One goal is for fitness -- to walk three times a week. If all goes well, I plan on adjusting this later.
The second goal is to help my younger son with his reading. He does it reluctantly most of the time, but although I occasionally (okay, often) have to bribe or otherwise force him into it, there are books he has enjoyed. The Skullduggery series by Derek Landy is one. There's also another series of books that he's excited about, though I don't think it's prudent if I name them just now. The first two have been translated into German and he's read them avidly, but although books three and four have been published in English, there is no word about them on the German publisher's website. My goal is to translate this third book into German (my German husband will proofread it) so that my son can have the pleasure of reading it. My goal is modest; translate two pages a day. He's currently working on another book now, so I think I can get a good headstart before he's ready.
And the third goal is to write something creative each day. This could be working on a fanfic, for instance, or trying my hand at something original, or even writing a new blog post. I know, I know, it's a bit vague. Okay, very vague. But last year, so many days went by in which I did absolutely nothing, that I think it might be a good thing to start out slow and work my way up. Once I get into the habit of writing regularly, even if it's crap, I can always adjust the goal later to include word counts or timed writing, or something more.
I've written down these goals and taped them to the top of my computer screen so that I'll always be reminded of what I want to do each day. I hope that helps.
I realize I might have to make sacrifices in order to squeeze my goals into my daily routine. If needs be, I'll start by jettisoning the housework.
