It’s Day Two of the Writer’s Digest’s “No Rules” 2015 October Platform Challenge.
When it comes to goal setting, the one in charge of this challenge, Robert Lee Brewer states:
“There are some people who believe in just charging blindly forward,”
and I guess I am the literal example of this.
Sometimes I do this … Or I always do this … I don’t really know where one ends and the other begins.
