Yesterday I looked back at my accomplishments in 2017, today it is time to look forward to 2018. My 2017 New Year’s resolutions were detailed and specific. I wanted to achieve certain goals and I thought that making them very specific would motivate me to work towards achieving them.
Unfortunately the opposite was true. I hardly achieve any of the goals I set for myself, and I found this very frustrating, especially as I came to write my 2017 review. However, I didn’t need those sepcific goals to have a wonderful, productive year. I accomplished a lot despite the goals I set for myself.
So, does that mean I am not going to make any New Year’s resolutions? No, I don’t really want to do that either, but I want them to be less specific. I want to concentrate on my personal development, as a sexual individual. I loved my sexual reawakening in 2017 and I want to continue down that path. I also want to continue having fun with my blog and stay true to myself and my vision.
There are some specific things I want to accomplish in 2018 though:
- I want to finish rewriting my erotic novel and either self-publish it or find a traditional publisher for it.
- I will go to Eroticon in March and meet other sex bloggers in real life.
- I will participate in the Smut Marathon and give it the attention it deserves. I may be voted out in the first round, but at least I will have tried then.
No one can know what the next year will bring, but I hope that with how general my goals are for 2018, I should be able to achieve at least something. I am excited about the new year, I am excited about taking my blog in a new direction – or at least give it more focus.
So what are your New Year’s resolutions?
