Learning from failure
Over the last three years, I've been making goals. I've been cruising past deadlines. I've watched hours, days, weeks and months wiz by. And I've wondered why my second book isn't done yet. I've wondered why I haven't posted content on my blog, Twitter or Instagram profiles.
Then I read 'The Four Tendencies' by Gretchen Rubin.
This book blew my mind. I expected to get a typical classification of my personality. I got so much more than that. This book explained why a do and don't get goals accomplished. It explained why I can crush my deadlines at work but when I get home my kitchen sink is overflowing with dishes. Or even better why is my apartment extremely clean when others come to visit but looks like a horrible when it's just me and my dog.
It also explained why I am sitting in August 2019 and have not completed the first draft my second book when it should have been completed in March.
I strongly encourage the book for anyone frustrated with missing their goals or even anyone frustrated with a loved one who is inconsistent with completing goals.
Using the information from the book I now understand that writing these blog posts is something that helps me complete my goals. Reaching out through social media helps me create external accountability that resonates with my personality.
What does all this mean? It means more content on my blog and more consistency so I can keep on track. My hope is that this will also mean completing several writing projects.
Thank you for walking with me on my journey! Have an exceptional day.
