Start Writing: Setting goals

I’ve been saying for some time that I was going to start writing again. It’s been a while, so I set out to go in stages. The blog, the short story, the book. This is step 1, the blog.

I’m actually not sure how far I really need to go. This entire process made me realize the lack of goals in my life. This hasn’t always been the case. I set out with major and intermediary goals earlier, but I accomplished them. Where I lacked was setting sufficient ones for the future. I was burnt out. I just kind of coasted.

Drifting through life, while being alright for some, doesn’t lend to leave much to look forward to. This was one of the new year’s resolutions I hope to keep.

So what exactly are you blogging? Good question. I plan on a tech blog, focused on enterprise storage challenges, disaster recover and business continuity, virtualization, encryption, de-duplication and grids. As well, I plan on a more diverse blog, the random notes, which will contain daily life as well as some short story gems I plan on getting into. All of this is step 1.

Another goals I set in 2009 were getting into some music classes. The first is scheduled this upcoming weekend – an African drumming class. The last goal set at that turn of the new year was to get more engaged with my horse, Jetta, and the riding and training  I hope to be doing with her.

That’s it. Things are happening. There’s a direction. Stopping the drift.

  1. Way to go! Fantastic start and very much looking forward to keeping up with you (oh, and helping you keep your goal too by asking questions).
