Day 11: This time next year…

Day 11: This time next year…

This time next year, Rodney, we’ll be millionnaires!

(This is a reference only Brits of a certain age will understand, sorry…)

This time next year, where you would like to be?

I ask this in full knowledge that I really struggle to look far into the future, so please please please don’t let this question stress you out, if you’re like me.

Long-term planning is something I stopped wrestling with years ago.

But I do like taking a peek—no pressure, no concrete plans, no punishments if things change.

So—what do you think?

Do you have a financial goal?

A life goal?

A book goal?

Of course I am focused on a book goal because that’s my jam—so let’s imagine you are too. Let’s imagine that by this time next year, you’d like have your published book in your hand.

What do you need to do to get there?

If one of the things you need to do is actually get clarity on your Big Book Idea and then figure out how to get started, perhaps these templates will help you…

Set a timer for 5 minutes and bang it out.

Happy writing!
