Two weeks ago, I went on a whirlwind trip to Kuna, Idaho, with my in-laws--my wife's grandmother of 92 passed away.
While spending 12+ hours a day in the van for four out of the six days we were away from home (two out to Idaho from Minnesota, two in Idaho, and two back), I got caught up on listening to my backlog of podcasts and reading--this is when I wasn't driving, of course.
In the midst of this, I thought about my goals for 2016 and 2017. In October 2015, I set goals for the rest of 2015 and all of 2016/2017. Once back home, I reviewed them. Since setting these goals up, I've created new projects (including one nonfiction piece while traveling) that will take place before a few others.
I have now set a reminder to review my goals on a quarterly basis. This way, I remind myself what still needs to be done and what can be pushed out for beyond 2017.
