OK so my last posting of my 5-year goals was in January 2015. Those goals were:

* BellaOnline < 30 empty sites
* Zero messages in all queues
* 5 weddings and courtships books published
* 18 medieval books published
* 6 Sutton Mass mystery novels published
* 20 adult romance novellas published
* Earn $10,000/month from ebook sales
* Floors and counters clear of piles
* Outside yard organized and pretty
* Do shoulder press yoga pose
* Body fat at 15%
* Play the Mozart song on piano

So, let's see.

The weddings & courtships series is no longer a priority for me. I have over 300 books published now and that is quite low on my radar.

I am writing book 5 in the Sutton series so that continues to go one a year, which I like.

I have written 22 of the adult romance novellas, so I reached that goal.

The ebook world has changed drastically so while I did hit $10,000 in sales in a month I'm not sure that's a long term goal any more.

So I think I'm going to revise this to be:

* BellaOnline < 30 empty sites
* Zero messages in all mail queues
* have 400 works published on Amazon
* Floors and counters clear of piles
* Outside yard organized and pretty
* Do shoulder press yoga pose
* Body fat at 15%
* Play ten songs on the guitar
* Play the Mozart song on piano
* Be able to watercolor paint sunflowers
* Have all college debt paid

Time again to work on my long term / 5 year goals. Remember that before you tackle this you should have set your Vision Statement / Priorities first.

OK so let's look at my current 5 year goals.

* BellaOnline < 30 empty sites
* Zero messages in all mail queues
* have 400 works published on Amazon
* Floors and counters clear of piles
* Outside yard organized and pretty
* Do shoulder press yoga pose
* Body fat at 15%
* Play ten songs on the guitar
* Play the Mozart song on piano
* Be able to watercolor paint sunflowers
* Have all college debt paid

I'm working my way toward the 400 works. I've been practicing watercoloring. I am very slowly paying off that college debt.

But the house is a giant mess and so is the yard. I haven't touched the piano in ages because I can't get to it. My email is overflowing.

So I definitely need to work on some of these more diligently. Overall these are good goals. I'm happy with them.

I've freshly revised my five-year goals for 2021. I got fairly stuck in 2020. So here's my newest list. On the up side, my credit cards are now clear. I also took the guitar off the list because I just keep stopping when my fingers hurt. It seems I just don't want to play guitar enough to keep hurting my fingers, and that is OK.

* BellaOnline < 30 empty sites
* Zero messages in all active mail queues
* Have 600 works published on Amazon
* Floors and counters clear of piles
* Outside yard organized and pretty
* Do shoulder press yoga pose
* Body fat at 15%
* Play a Mozart song smoothly on piano without music
* Be able to watercolor paint my nieces
* Have all college debt paid
