I’m pretty good at keeping my appointments with others. I know how important time is to others so I try my best to make my appointments.
However I don’t keep them with myself. I’ve been trying to make time to write so I can finish this book and submit it. I find myself doing other things. Too tired to read or think.
A writer friend, Shelia Goss told me to make an appointment with myself. I giggled to myself. I do that all the time. I even went so far as to create an alarm on my phone. It wasn’t helping though because I was ignoring it. I put something else in place of it.
Sunday I made an appointment with myself to write. This time I showed up on time and I stayed longer than I’d set the appointment for. I wrote and it felt good.
What did I learn from this? To keep my own appointment. I’m important and so is my time. Appointments are important if you want to complete a goal. I have a big goal to submit this book by the end of September. I will keep my goal and I will continue to keep my appointments to me.
How are you at keeping appointments for yourself?
