REACH YOUR GOALS BY KEEPING QUIET

In an age of social media where we share everything, this short 3 minute Ted Talk discusses how that may not be a good idea when it comes to goals.  Apparently, the data shows that people that share their goals are more likely to not reach those goals than people that keep quiet.  It’s a fascinating talk and I hope you enjoy it.

As for my goals, which I said I would share, well, without being specific – I plan to write more and be more creative.  I hope you plan to be more creative as well.

Go set your goal, plan your steps, be quiet and creative, then share your success in the social media world.

What do you do after you achieve your goal?

My second book, “Dark Heart Curse,” is now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple and a few other distributors.  And I am waiting for the third and final book in the series, “Dark Heart Forever,” to come back from the editor.

As I finish this series, I recall a piece I wrote on this blog about saying good-bye to TV friends (http://csvalentine.com/saying-good-bye-to-old-tv-friends/ ).  I feel that way about this series – these are imaginary people that I cared about and looked forward to seeing.  I want everyone that reads my books to feel the same way.

But the time has come to say good-bye and move on.  The goal was to leave something behind in the universe and I did.  The words are now out there in the world and when I am gone, the words will still be there (even if they are just hidden on Amazon’s website.)

Now the question is:  What do you do after you have achieved your goal?  Send me your thoughts and suggestions and tell me what goal you set and achieved.

I’ll share my answer later on because right now I want to spend a little time celebrating my accomplishment.
