In my last blog titled, Listing book on Amazon.com, I spoke about how simple it was to publish and list a book on Amazon. In my opinion, it is great because there are so many people who want to get their story out there. If anyone needs help in listing their book on Amazon, please feel free to reach out to me and I can help you free of charge. If you are reading my blog on civil accomplishment.com and want to better yourself, then I am more than willing to help you out.
Currently, you can purchase the book in the eBook format for Kindle. I am getting a paperback proof sent to me for review next week and should have the paperback version of the book available for purchase by the end of next week, unless unforeseen issues arise.
So, where does this all fall into my 5 year or 10 year plan. For 2018, I have tasked myself with writing a book and publishing it. I have held myself accountable to complete this objective by writing it into my 5 year plan chart. A few other objectives in the same bucket are start writing in a magazine, start speaking at events as a guest speaker, and start investing in the stock market. I did speak at a few events as a guest speaker and did start investing in the stock market a few months ago. I do not foresee myself writing in a magazine in 2018, especially with some recent changes in my career. If I don’t achieve this goal this year, then I am going to put more pressure on myself to achieve it next year.
When I look at my objectives in the various buckets (career, school, personal, business), I am confident I have the right goals set in place to support my overarching dream. It’s all about the big picture in my opinion and what we do to get there. For example, if you want to be a medical doctor, then you are going to need to be successful in university, medical school, residency, and so on. There are certain steps you need to take to be successful in achieving your goals. There should be some ground rules or strategic thinking around getting there. In my case I have chosen these:
Yours may be different than mine, which is more than fine! As long as you are building out your goals and tackling them in a timely manner, then you are a step ahead of a lot of people. Let me know your thoughts on this.
