Homestretch Business Goals

As we are hurtling towards the final month of 2020 (where did all the time go? Does anyone else feel like 2020 has gone by in the blink of an eye?), I thought now would be a good time to look at some homestretch goals for the last four weeks of the year. By ‘homestretch goals’, I mean goals that I can do in the homestretch of this year. I find that planning for the last little bit of the year enables me to keep on track and as I have been unwell this year and my motivation has dipped in the last couple of months, this feels even more important. So, without further ado, here are my homestretch goals for 2020!

Write 2 blogposts
In my first year as a freelancer, I set a goal of writing a blogpost every week. While I did manage this for the first year, as work has picked up, I’ve found I have less time for marketing and this isn’t entirely manageable. So, going forward, I’m going to be aiming for fortnightly blogposts on this blog. For the rest of the year, you can expect a post on the best productivity youtubers to motivate you and a wrap up of my 2020 business goals!

Keep up with my daily work routines
I recently wrote out the daily tasks that I need to get done for work and have so far managed to stick to them for the last month or so. This is actually one of my goals for 2021, but I want to really embed this habit in before the new year starts.

Translate 10k words of the book translation
I’m currently working on a huge book translation that is taking me longer than I initially thought (due largely to my health issues) and I really want to make a good dent in it by the end of the year. I’m setting myself a conservative goal of 500 words per day (little and often is better than stressing!)

So those are my goals for the remainder of the year! What are you hoping to get done professionally before we ring in the new year? Let me know on social media or in the comments of this blog! If you have a professional query, you can contact me on!
