I’m starting this ROW80 challenge a few weeks into the round after reading S.J. Dricoll’s happy post last week. Over time I’ve become wary of too much goal setting – I found the ground kept shifting and I’d end up disappointed that “nothing” was achieved or I’d decided that it was a silly goal in the first place. I’m hoping the ROW80 paradigm accommodates the vagaries of my life – it says it does anyway.
So here’s the Big List for the next two months
Complete two short stories for publication
Complete two articles for publication
Participate in the Great Conversation by
- writing two blog posts per week
- commenting on three blog posts per day
- tweeting daily with my fellow writers and spinners
Throw out five items a day – that is start getting rid of the junk!
Organise the renovations we have planned – measurable? Get a start date.
Spend 30 minutes in the garden every fine day.
Complete Certificate Part B

Finish spinning the red and blue wool on the Eyre Wheel.

Health and Wellbeing

Some of those goals are big and inclusive while some are self explanatory. As the weeks progress the breakdown/micro management of the goals will be apparent (I hope). So that’s it all I have to do now is hit “publish” – just do it.
Do you ever sit on a post wondering why you’re reluctant to commit? I am.
