Well, I set goals, I just didn’t meet them. At all. But, you know what, I don’t feel like I failed.
To start with, I certainly didn’t meet the target of planking for a minimum of 3 minutes. In fact, the only exercise I’ve done this month was a couple of walks in the forest. Being back to work has eaten up the majority of my time this month. It’s getting towards a busy period and therefore finding time to write a lengthy blog post has been a challenge, let alone anything else.
I also had another seizure at the start of the month, which always makes me a bit paranoid about what I was doing in the few days building up to it, as to whether somewhere along the line, I inadvertently caused it myself.
What I have been doing however, is much more reading. My wife bought herself a new Kindle a couple of weeks ago, and as a result, I’ve ended up with her old one. And now, every night I read a chapter of a book. I’m currently reading Agent Zero by Jack Mars, and I’m really enjoying taking that time out before sleeping to relax with a book. Now, as I say, I’m only reading a chapter a day, I enjoy my sleep, I find it easy to fall asleep and I’m a morning person, so late nights aren’t exactly my favourite thing, so a quick 20 minute read is more than enough.
One of the other things I find myself doing, is saving articles I come across online to read at a later time. And this month, one really stuck in my mind, and has created a challenge for me in August. It’s a small post about writing every day by Anna Klawitter, which can be found here and is something that I’m going to try to do. They won’t be long, and may even only be a small round up of my day, but my intention is to write every day in August. Mostly for myself and to increase the amount of content, along with seeing if this gives me further inspiration to allow me to push my blog forward and start to find my niche/subject to central my online world.
So I guess, along with rounding up my July goals, I’ve also just announced my August goal.
How did you get on in July, and what are you looking forward to in August? Let me know in the comments below.
No matter what route you choose in life, you’re going to need to be able to write effectively. Your words should inform, persuade, and captivate the reader.Anna Klawitter
