If I Don’t Reach My Goal – Have I Failed?

Late last month I wrote about my goal of writing 50 thousand words this month as part of Digital Writing Month.  Some 26 days later, I know that I won’t reach that goal; at least not in the way I had totally envisioned. Now, I could spend a lot of time feeling frustrated about this….but why?  I created this goal for myself, during what I knew was going to be a busy and hectic month. The reality is that I was probably overly enthusiastic and perhaps even a little too ambitious.

So the question is this; by not reaching my original goal – have I failed?  Perhaps yes….perhaps no.  I’m not going to agonize over it.  Instead, I’m celebrating the various things that I have done and that I will continue to do in the days to come.  Below is a List.ly of a selection of the various things that I have been working on this month.  Regardless of my word count, I’m producing content for various projects. I’m also being a lot more strategic in the way that I’m fitting everything together.
