Mid-year review

In January I set out my goals for the year and invited you to do the same in The rule of three.

With June coming to a close, it’s a good time to conduct a mid-year review to check on progress.

The first of my big three is to increase the volume of my published body of work.

The three actions in my plan to achieve that goal are:

  1. Complete writing The Holiday, the second book in the Inspector West series
    • I’m working on the second edit, with publication planned for late July/early August
  2. Write According to Luke, a novel for young adult readers
    • Replaced with the Living Alone series for men living on their own.
      • After She’s Gone (Published this month)
      • Cooking 4 One (Publication planned for July)
  3. Continue writing Sharing the journey.
    • Blog posted every week – there has to be another book hidden in that material.

The second of my big three is to engage with my readers.

The three actions in my plan to achieve that goal are:

  1. Blog on my author’s page on Goodreads
    • I’ve linked this blog to my author’s page on both Amazon and Goodreads
  2. Post regular updates to my Facebook and Google+ author pages
    • My postings on my Facebook author’s page cannot be called regular
    • I’ve linked this blog to my Google+ author page
    • I’ve created an author’s page on Smashwords.com
    • I’ve created an author’s page on the AuthorsDen.com
  3. Encourage readers of Sharing the journey to leave comments and ask questions
    • I’ve regularly invited you to share but it seems you’re a bashful lot – apart from the spammers!

The third of my big three is to improve the level of my physical wellbeing.

The three actions in my plan to achieve that goal are:

  1. Regular meditation
    • Daily meditation
  2. Regular exercise
    • Room for improvement on this one
  3. Regular sleeping pattern
    • Getting around 7 hours most nights.

In summary, apart from the exercise bit, I seem to on track for meeting my goals.

Progress score

 

So, did you set yourself some goals for 2014?

How are you doing?

Thanks for dropping by, Peter
