Freelance Writing Income Goals: How did your 2008 Shape up?

As you know, I am a big believer in setting goals. Goals can help you reach new heights, and eventually become a success no matter what dream you are chasing. As a freelance writer, it is safe to say that many of your goals should be based around your income. At the end of every year I take a close look at my income, and of course, I compare it to the goals that I set.

Fortunately, I met and exceeded all of my income goals this year. This means one of two things: I either had a great year or I did not set my sights high enough. I think it is a little bit of both. Even though my 2008 income goals were much higher than they were in 2007, looking back I may have been able to push myself even further. That being said, I am ecstatic that I exceeded my goals.

If you did not reach your income goals this year don’t get down on yourself. Every so often I come up short on some of my goals, and this holds true with every freelance writer. Instead of beating yourself up you should assess why you missed your goals, and then use this information when setting new ones. Remember, you want to push yourself to reach new heights but don’t go overboard by setting goals that you have no chance of achieving.

Now is the time to look over your income stats from 2008 so you can begin to set goals for the new year. Although this year has not yet come to an end, you need plenty of time to review the past 12 months and to prepare for the challenges that are awaiting you in 2009.
