What have you achieved this month?

So it’s the end of September and like most months I find myself wondering what have I achieved this month.
There are two major things I haven’t achieved: getting the Chaos series into paperback and getting my books onto a website called Smashwords. But as always, I haven’t cut myself up about this, because I’ve done so many other things and I’m still moving forward.
My third book Never-Ending Chaos is now available and I’ve been networking and building relationships, so that’s been fun. On a personal note, I painted one of the rooms in my house that I was meant to do in the summer holidays, I’ve lost a stone, I’ve started exercising again and I stopped the vino up until the 26th September -which trust me, is a massive achievement for me.
Now, I’m really into goal-setting and working towards dreams. My inspirational book for 2013 gives weekly advice on setting goals. I’m a huge believer in not giving-up. Just because a certain task hasn’t been achieved by a certain date it doesn’t mean it won’t be achieved ever, it just needs to be given a new deadline date.

One of my favourite quotes is :
THE SMALLEST STEPS COUNT
And for building motivation and trying to push yourself forward, think of this:
THE TIME IS COMING ANYWAY, DO YOU WANT TO BE THINKING IN A MONTH’S TIME, SIX MONTH’S TIME OR A YEAR … IF ONLY I TRIED!
I’ve set my goals this month, and I’ve included getting the Chaos series into paperback and getting my books onto Smashwords. These sound like simple tasks, but formatting my books, so each platform will take them, is taking a lot longer than I anticipated. But this is fine. I’m learning as I go along.
So guys, set yourselves some goals. What do you want to achieve this month?
If you need some help, my inspirational books for 2012 and 2013 will be coming out FREE very soon. Daily quotes and weekly tasks will hopefully help you move forward. Just visualise how good you’ll feel when you have achieved your goal.
