I never feel like I’m going enough or that I’ll ever reach my own goals, and I know other smutlancers feel the same way. Part rant, part ramble, here are my tips for how to take small steps to keep moving forward to achieve your big goals — especially when it seems like you’ll never get there.
In this episode:
- Lack of inspiration and time make us wonder if it’s worth it
- Not seeing fast results can get us down
- Commit to a single task or goal — Write Every Damn Day in June
- Stop waiting for a big chunk of time — commit to 30 minutes at a time
- Focus on the now — stop imagining what it’s going to be like when you complete your goal and start working on it.

I totally relate to much of what you say in this podcast. Having a single goal can really help. I have the same issue that you said you had where if you hadn’t completed one task you can’t get on with other tasks. That’s a big issue for me. I’m glad I listened to this, even if it is a few months old because it’s helped me get my focus back to creating a single achievable goal. SMART goals can be useful Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time bound or Timely.
As for inspiration you’re right that you can’t always wait for inspiration. I haven’t got one yet but I have heard of a swipe file where you keep clips or links to pages and websites or pictures that are impressive or inspirational. But just doing it is the first step. Especially when it feels like work that is one of the hard parts.
Thank you for this inspiring podcast and great website.
Thanks for listening, and I’m glad you can relate and that it helped a bit!
