Planning for 2018


I've spent a great couple of days preparing for 2018 with these two excellent books; the "Media Diary 2018" from Soulful PR with Janet Murray and "Your Best Year 2018" by Lisa Jacobs. Both were recommended by people I trust, and having made a start on planning the year, I believe that they're both going to be excellent tools to help me get what I want out of 2018.

I took a break from freelancing in 2015 and have only recently started again, having settled in my new home and got myself really focused on what I want to be doing.

2018 is set to be my year of "growth", my word for 2017 was "create", and having managed to create a solid starting point, I'm ready to grow in all areas of my life and work.

I'll be using both these books to track my progress and I will check in with you over the year to let you know how I'm getting on.

What's your word/phrase for 2018 and how are you planning to track your progress?

Reasons to be cheerful - 5th October 2017

It's a quickie this week... I'm still loving my job and really glad that I made the move. I submitted two commissioned articles to editors and they were happy. I'm off on a trip, a couple of nights away (more on that next week). Hope you've had a great week too.

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.



3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
