A sad story about goals, identity, and forgetting your blog address.

Sigh.

Seriously, SIGH.

I decided to pop in and post a bit on my lunch break today. I wanted to write about that one time when I had a goal to update my blog every single day for a month – and I did that. And how, at the end of that month, I did not set a new goal, but simply “eased up” – which resulted in about 3 posts in as many months.

I was so happy during November. Here I was, doing what I wanted to do. Spending lots of time on my blog. Updating, interacting, feeling great about myself. Even daring to think about calling myself a writer!

Today, on the cusp of March, I could not remember the web address to my blog admin login panel.

Let me be a lesson to you. Don’t ease up on your goals, or you may find yourself starting from scratch in just a few short months!

  1. That sounds about right. I eased up, as you call it, from doing the hard work of pounding the grad school pavement, and I’ve made absolutely no movement in two months. Let’s hope we both get on the horse and kick.
