A few years ago, I found a really helpful archived workshop over on Romance Divas about goal setting. (Jenna Bayley-Burke gave it.) It really cleared up a lot of issues I had about how to set yearly/monthly goals... because it was so freaking simple! No SMART crap or anything.

However, every time I came up with my yearly/monthly plan using her method, things always derailed by about March or April. Or certain things were taking longer to finish, which then would screw up the remainder of the year. (Yeah, I know, I could adjust goals, but staring at that now screwed up list and what was left to do always made me drown in defeat.)

For the past couple weeks, I've been drafting my 2015 goals. And... to quote Gru from Despicable Me... LIGHT BULB!

I'm turning my yearly goals into semester goals! Here we go...
