I really like this, I'm going to give it a go and plan the route to a few of my goals this evening! Good luck with your novel, judging by your writing on here, I'm sure you'll write something great!

I recommended your whole blog on my latest "roundup" post - usually I pick one post from the past week, but I didn't want to single out just one of yours as they've all been brilliant so far. :)

Vixel - I'm so glad you liked the post and that it's inspired you to plan a route for your goals. Thank you so much for your encouragement about my novel and your kind words about my writing. That means a lot to me. It also means a lot to me that you've linked to PP on your blog, http://www.sparkleandglitter.co.uk. It's a great blog and I hope my readers will go check it out. :)

I liked the way to identified the biggest roadblock - ourselves! I think this is the biggest problem for achieving any goal.

Very good advice. I once heard that a plan such as this is simply something to deviate from. This has always been a reminder to me to stay flexible for often times the map we draw may need to be modified a few times along the way.

Roger - Thanks! I hadn't thought about until I started writing, but I really am the biggest roadblock to my own success and I think that's probably true for a lot of people.

Mark - You make a very good point here. It's important to have a plan, but it's also important to be flexible. Being too rigid can be a roadblock!

Hi Positively Present
What great steps to go by and use as a road map to making your dreams and goals into a reality.

Imperfect Action is better than No Action

Giovanna - Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed reading the steps.

Thanks for the advice and making the post easy to read.

Terry - You're welcome! I'm glad you liked the advice.

Hi Positively Present. Thanks for sharing your process, and your roadmap. I am working on a book too and my challenge is to fit it into my daily schedule. I was "supposed" to be up early this morning to write but I ended up staying up too late the night before, working.

Good luck with your writing! That is exciting. Don't forget to add to your list ways to "enjoy the journey" :-) Now... if only I could take my own advice.

Davina - You're welcome! I'm glad that you can relate to the challenges of writing a book. It's a lot of work and it's definitely hard to fit it in to the rest of life. You make a great point about thinking of ways to enjoy the journey. Perhaps I'll write a post about that one day! :)

Hi Positively Present - I like your second point about anticipating problems. Taking some time to think about potential challenges is certainly a time saver when you are out on the road! You will always have unexpected challenges that you will have to deal with in the moment so having a plan to deal with anticipated challenges makes things a little easier. :)

Amanda - You're so right. Little things will always come up in life, but there are some things you can (try to) anticipate. Thanks for commenting!

Hi Positively Present .. that's a really good two days worth of posts .. essential reading and both so well set out and followed through. It is deciding to establish your steps to get to your goal .. the steps that will take you there ... the doing .. a bit like driving to CA .. I guess you made it in steps .. a few days?

Good luck with the writing and I'm so pleased to hear you've got a 2nd idea that's somewhat different .. go for it ..

Thanks - Hilary Melton-Butcher
Positive Letters

Hilary - Thanks for the encouragement! :) I'm glad you enjoyed the last two posts. It really is a lot like when I drove out to California. It took about 4 or 5 days to get there and required a lot of planning before hand.


Just found your blog and am really enjoying it. Best of luck and you have yourself a new reader.



Chris - I'm so glad you found the blog and enjoy reading it! Great to know you'll be coming back for more. :)
