This is always one of my favorite times of year! It’s a brand new quarter, which means it’s time to review my Q2 goals and reset my kanban board for Q3.
One of the things I love most about quarterly planning is the chance to have a fresh start every 3 months. It’s a great way to get that “new year” feeling several times a year and ride that extra motivation!
**Just a quick disclaimer that I mention at the start of the video. Sadly, my phone holder was messed up, which created a shaky camera recording. I tried my best to fix it after the fact, but stabilizers only made it look worse. Sorry for the quality, and I’ll have it fixed by the next time I do this kind of video, but for now, you might have a better experience watching this on a smaller screen like a phone!
I changed things up a bit in Q2 to make sure I was being good to myself and managing my mental health. Here’s what worked for me:
For Q3, my goals are largely staying the same as Q2. The main thing that’s changing is the numbers I’m trying to hit. If you want to see a detailed walkthrough of my new goals, watch the video linked above!
As usual, I’m setting one writing-related goal, a Heart Breathings-related goal, and a mental health and wellness goal. I’m finding this pattern of 3 goals with these three main points of focus works really well for me, so I want to keep it going.
This quarter, I’m hoping to write and publish another novel (Book 3 in my Eternal Sorrows Trilogy), run my Publish And Thrive Course, and lose 25 pounds. Those are some of my biggest projects, and I’m excited to get started!
I apologize again for the shakiness of the camera on this video. Sometimes, mistakes just can’t be helped. I’m working on a solution, so hopeful it won’t be something we’ll have to deal with in the future.
Have you set any goals for Q3? Let me know in the comments here or on YouTube! Have an amazing start to the second half of Q3!
I have been self-publishing my books since 2010, and in that time, I've sold well over half a million copies of my books. I'm not a superstar or a huge bestseller, but I have built an amazing career that brings me great joy. Here at Heart Breathings, I hope to help you find that same level of success. Let's do this.
