Shoot For The Moon!

It occurred to me today that in order to reach my goal that I have set for myself for the year in terms of writing hubs for HubPages, I need to have 52 hubs written during my Summer of Writing. This works out to a little more than 5 per week. So far, I am on week 3 and have written 17 hubs which I am happy with. Unfortunately I am behind for the year. I wrote 150 hubs during my first year on HubPages, which started in January, 2012. My goal for my second year was to publish 200 hubs, while continuing to work, so unfortunately I can't write full time. Except for these 10 weeks of Summer that is. So I have been wondering how I will feel if I don't reach my 350 goal by January of 2014. I am beginning to feel that maybe I am biting off more than I can chew with all these goals I have set for myself. I am thoroughly enjoying writing every day. In fact, the more I write, the more I want to write. My husband commented that when I am writing, I concentrate solely on that and am not aware of what is going on around me. I liked the sound of that. I have always heard that if you find a career that you totally love and it doesn't feel like work to you, then it's a career worth keeping. So, I have found it, but unfortunately, so far it doesn't look like I will be able to quit my day job! Not yet anyway. So, I will keep plodding along as best I can. I will continue my 10 week summer of writing full time. I will continue to keep working toward my goal of earning $125 per week at it. I will continue toward the goal of writing 200 hubs this year. And if I don't reach all of those goals? Hey, I am shooting for the moon so at least I should land among the stars instead of not trying and at all and slouching around on the earth whining about my life. I do set a lot of goals for myself but it's the only way I can move forward. And if I don't reach all my goals this year, at least I will be farther along than if I hadn't set any at all. And there's always next year! Okay, I am off now to work on my newest hub. I am including a picture I took on a trip to Bora Bora in the French Polynesian Islands, to remind me to shoot for the moon!

  1. That photo from Bora Bora is so beautiful!
    You do have pretty lofty goals. I think as time progresses, you will develop a good routine, learn what goals are realistic, and make more money as time progresses. Good luck! I enjoy reading this blog, even when I don't comment!
