Ideation the first step in writing

Are we doing justice to ideas? 

A couple of weeks ago I told you how to concentrate on writing one thing at a time. That was preceded by a post on where I go to get inspired to write.

On such days no articles are produced, no stories birthed and the writers’ world is in a standstill. Zero productivity. Constant drifting. 

To solve this problem, there are places where I go to get fresh inspiration to write and that is what I write about in this post.

One Big Reason your so many goals never get accomplished 

​It’s commonplace nowadays to hear someone advice another: “set a goal.” or “Make it a target!”

Goal setting is such an integral part of our everyday lives that gives us a focus, a direction or path to thread.

In my bid to keep up growing and developing (being better day by day), I’ve always been among those who are so eager to set goals but haven’t been on the fortunate side of things when it comes to achieving them. 

Everytime I fail to hit a deadline or attain a goal, I keep asking myself -Why is this so? Why can’t I achieve these goals?

I then found out that it wasn’t my goals that were wrong it was my approach to achieving them that was at fault.

What is your definition of success?

A few weeks ago I was conversing with a friend whom I hadn’t seen for three years.
After the usual, ‘long time no see’ and ‘how have you been?’ salutations,
he asked me a question – ‘What does success mean to you?’ I was silent for a while and he added, ‘What’s your life target?’
I was dumbfounded by the gravity of the question and couldn’t answer. All through my journey back to school I kept pondering on it – what does success mean to me personally?
I didn’t get to the bottom of it until recently. I now understand what my friend was asking me to do.
