How A Dragonfly Changed My Quarterly Goals

July 7, 2022 by Sarra

A Writer's Life | Planning And Organization

My quarterly goals were all in place…until a dead dragonfly changed everything for me. Today, I’ll share what happened when I got home from vacation and how that moment has inspired me to set new boundaries and get back to the joy of writing.

I’ll also share how I did in Q2 and my Q3 goals and kanban board reset. Watch today’s video here. And make sure to grab your Energy Audit Workbook from the link below.

My Quarterly Goals For Q3 2022

Energy Audit Workbook

As part of my process of figuring out where I needed to set clearer boundaries and take back my creative energy for writing, I sketched out a quick energy audit process in my notebook. It was so helpful for me in making decisions about my habits and daily actions that I cleaned it up and put it into a workbook for you, too.

You can grab that Energy Audit workbook over in the Free HB Resource Library. Sign up for my Newsletter now to gain access to this download and more than 20 others.

    Camp NaNoWriMo

    I’ve been posting daily Camp NaNo Reels on Instagram! It’s been a kind of minivlog experience, and I’m having so much fun.

    July Virtual Writing Retreat

    If you’re part of the Heart Breathings Writing Community on Facebook, you’ll know we took a break in June from hosting our Virtual Writing Retreat. I want to thank all of you for being so understanding as I know how much you all look forward to it. I’m pleased to confirm that there will definitely be a July Retreat! How could we not, what with Camp NaNo and all!? The destination has yet to be determined, but I promise it will be fun!

    Head over to the Heart Breathings Writing Community page here on my website to see our Google Calendar for daily sprint times and links. The July Retreat times will be added next week!

    Publish & Thrive

    Publish And Thrive opens for enrollment on July 17th!!

    Class will start with our first-ever P&T Kick Off Call (open to both alumni and new students) on Saturday, July 30th. I’ve expanded the course from 5 weeks to 6 to give more time for our marketing module, and I’m adding a few new bonuses as well.

    The price will remain the same at $399 (all prices in USD), and I will be offering both a 6 month and 12 month payment plan option for this round.

    My Thriving Author Bundle will be available again, too! This includes both of my courses: Publish & Thrive and the HB90 Bootcamp, at a discounted price of $499. I will also be offering payment plans for the bundle, so keep an eye out next weekend for enrollment links!

    I’d love to see you there. If you have any questions, send me an email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can (Sarra @ Heartbreathings.com) So excited for this next round!

    Hi, I'm Sarra!

    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.
