April Progress Report Card

Now that April has ended, it is time to report what progress I have made. As I predicted, I got about half of my goals completed. Here is a reminder of what those goals were:

April Goals

1. Email a company about copyright questions
2. Write 40000 words
3. Apply to 50 jobs
4. Read 8 manga
5. Write one blog post a week (4) (website)
6. Write two blog posts (personal blog)
7. Read 2 books (minimum)
8. Transfer $400 to savings

Goal 1 is really difficult for me for some reason. I need to just draft it, polish it, and send it off. Nothing too crazy. Doesn’t seem to matter. Therefore, this is going to be on May’s goal list.

Goal 2? Not even close. I got a few pages revised so it wasn’t a complete failure. I have them in my pocket at work so during slow periods I can take a few minutes to read them over. Plus, by doing that, it’ll get me to where I can continue writing. This goal will also be repeated, but with a more reasonable number.

Goal 3 I’m pretty sure was completed. Or at least was close by less than 5. I figured I could do two a day, but in reality I put out like 10-15 in a sitting on my day(s) instead. Whatever works right? Therefore, I shall repeat it.

Goal 4 was a bit ambitious methinks. I thought reading two manga a week would be doable, but it wasn’t. Six would have been a better number. I’m pretty sure that’s what I read. As a result, I shall be repeating this as well with six as my goal.

Goals 5, 6, and 8 were satisfactorily completed. These were pretty easy. Saying that, I just needed to remain diligent. Mirroring that again shouldn’t be a problem.

Goal 7 was also completed. I know I finished two books last month, but am unsure if I started one of the books in April. Either way, I did start and finish two books. Whether they were the same books I can’t say.

While I didn’t hit 100%, I think my progress was still pretty good. In any case, what I need to do now is tailor May’s goal to be more realistically attainable. This will be easy. 

May Goals

1. Email a company about copyright questions
2. Write 2000 words
3. Apply to 50 jobs
4. Read 6 manga
5. Write one blog post a week (4) (website)
6. Write two blog posts (personal blog)
7. Read 2 books (minimum)
8. Transfer $400 to savings
9. Contact Plitzs media and wardrobe teams with required information

There are many more goals I could add to the list, but I’m trying to not overdo it. Besides, my fitness is already pretty good. At any rate, by focusing on these few I should complete them all. And if I don’t, I can always tweak them again. I look forward to June first so I can report how much progress I made 🙂
