It took a bit of creative effort to think about the side effects of my goals once they've been achieved, but I came up with some ideas: Dieting
: one of the side effects of dieting is that you start wearing clothes that have smaller sizes. If you're an XL and loose 50 pounds, you'll probably be a Medium. So here is my idea: wear clothes that are a little too tight for me, but that I can still put on. So here I am today, sat at my desk with fitted jeans and a really tight belt, in my black T-shirt that moulds to my body, feeling a little embarrassed about love handles, but really hopeful that this will get me into the thin-think mode Writing
: one of the side effects of being a paid writer is that you write every day, since it's your job. It's the only thing I could think of... so I have been writing every day since the beginning of the year, and I can see some changes in my mental state while I write: I feel more confident, more focused towards building a piece, towards expressing emotions, and basically getting the job done. Doing it everyday makes it a more casual event (it's still important to me, but I'm also relaxed doing it)...
Any other ideas for these or other goals?
