“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”

1. Poor Time Mgmt.- boo, you suck!
I do not dedicate time to just 1 or 2 specific things. As other things come at me, I work on them and the next thing you know it's 3am on a Tuesday night and I have to be up at 6am to get ready for work-phew! Just writing that is making me tired.
a. solution #1- create an off work/school schedule-just one, not twelve different schedules lol
b. solution #2- include my down time, fun stuff, family time and sleep in the schedule
c. solution #3- post my schedule and share it! i won't have time to forget and others will remind me to keep on task-nothing like scheduling something and being called out on it because loser-me forgot even though it's listed clear as day
2. I'm a wanderer- find your way back Fido, come on-you can do it!
I love to day dream and think up different thoughts on how to handle things. I'm constantly organizing and re-organizing and then I re-re-organize. I love to be lazy and procrastinate and snuggle with a good book. These "wanderings" keep me distracted from my goals.
a. solution #1- include this time in my schedule as listed in obstacle #1 :)
b. solution #2- use this time as journaling time-then i will be able to work on my writing skills too
c. solution #3- use this time while exercising and running-during our 1 hour carride home from work w/ DH
3. I definitely am afraid that I don't know enough.
Although I am confident with myself and can get through public speaking just fine...I get this little critter that flutters in my belly before the actual "event". I feel as if I don't know what I am doing, so just stop and move on to something you can do.
a. solution #1- talk/write it out-make a list of what i do and do not know, then move on from there.
b. solution #2- ask questions-i will feel more confident having more knowledge of what ever it is i seek
c. solution #3- share with family, friends & strangers to get critic and different point of views d. solution #4- stand on my balcony and shout it out-if anything at least this would be fun lol.
today's mission was to actually share at least 5 obstacles w/ a few good solutions, but this is all i could think of for now-i'm sure 2 more will pop up sooner or later and when the time comes i will update and let everyone know :)

here are what i believe to be my greatest strengths which i believe will help me achieve my goal of writing a successful short story:
even about the nitty gritty which not one person wants to hear about, i will find the positive. in that absurdly obnoxious family member (which i know we all have 1 of those), i can seek the positive. in that situation, i know many have visited before, where you think there is no hope and the road has really come to a dead end-the positivity has reached me.
i have a big heart and will do everything that i can to help. this is not only for feeling sorry for persons or situations but because i want to, i can and i most certainly will. i feel complete when someone thanks me or praises me for the littlest things that made a difference to them.
i find that i can make anything work-i just find ways to put it in perspective of the situation. i can't sleep, we make it more comfy. hubby can't find something, we'll re-organize to make it work for next time. someone is having trouble doing something, what can i change in their environment to make it work. that paper is too small, we will make it fit. i don't know what to say, we will find the words to make it work.
i am able to admit when i cannot do something and can also share what i can do. i am not afraid to ask for help or guide others to the answer when they ask questions. i am a questioner, so be ready. i will share my flaws to make me a better person and share my abilities; unique, big or small. i will speak my mind, share my thoughts and opinions. i will ALWAYS listen and accept your thoughts, feelings and opinions with respect.
i love to laugh with the occasional snort. i sleep with 6 blankets, 3 pillows and my hubby. i spoil my totally awesome nephews. i love my husband and family. i can't live without ben&jerry's half baked or chocolate covered gummi bears. i can watch the same movie over and over again. iam completely allergic to dirty dishes-it just doesn't happen. i do not under any circumstances match or fold socks! i secretly am in love with dinosaurs. i believe that birthday cakes are mandatory no matter how old you are! i love to be barefoot. i am a collector of family memorabilia and photos. i hoard cute stuff. i love to dream. i love to live. i love my life.
well there ya have it. a little bit of what i think of me. i'm not sitting here trying to toot my own horn or anything. by no means am i saying i'm a perfectly awesome person-although i am pretty awesome lol, but i am comfortable with me. this is pretty darn cool for anyone to try and whether or not you decide to share it with anyone, i'm sure you'll feel proud and smile after you realize how much more you really are-now that in itself is pretty awesome.

"On January 1, 2011, I have achieved the goal I set on day 2 of thechallenge. I feel wonderful now I've achieved writing my very own short story to share with everyone! This is how my life has changed:
1. I can really do anything when I put my mind into it! Just a few short goals and my goal was complete!
2. This method of completing a goal I will be able to apply to any goal. It has allowed me to actually follow through and complete goals!!!!!
3. I am proud and confident in myself that I completed sharing my short story.
4. I am able to write creatively and submit it to others to read without worrying!
5. I have improved my writing grammar, editing skills and vocabulary in such a short time-I know that it will carry on :)"
Well, I have several index cards ready-(1) was suggested- and am going to plaster it on my work board, fridge and planner so I can keep it in mind constantly.
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
